Impact and Influence Committee

The Impact and Influence Committee is primarily responsible for driving forward the key strategic aim to “advance understanding of microbiology and champion the contribution made by microbiology, our members and their work in addressing global challenges”.

It does this through increasing opportunities for members to communicate their work, raising the profile of microbiology and increasing the influence of the Society with the public, policymakers and other stakeholders.
