The Microbiology Society issues topical briefing papers, position statements and consultation responses, which provide need-to-know information on various subjects such as hospital-acquired infections, climate change and pandemic influenza. These resources are prepared with the help of our members. To request hard copies of these resources please contact our Policy team on [email protected].
Policy briefings outline key microbiological issues and research for policy-makers, including antimicrobial resistance, human fungal diseases and climate change.
Position statements outline the Society's positions on key issues including tackling sexually transmitted infections, food security and safety and animal research.
Consultation responses communicate the expert knowledge and opinion of our members to policy makers on issues such as Brexit, biosecurity and the research environment.
