The study of Microbiology encompasses all forms of microorganisms ranging from bacteria and their associated phage to eukaryotes (fungi, other lower eukaryotes and cell cultures) and their associated viruses. You will find the CSM divided into 3 sections: Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Infection and Immunity and Molecular Genetics and Cellular Microbiology. It is recognized that these 3 broad areas do have overlap both in research technique as well as scientific interest. It is hoped that you will all find a comfortable scientific home within one of these sections.

The CSM is a non-profit organization with close to 500 members that include honorary, emeritus, ordinary, student and sustaining members. Our members include national government agencies, umbrella organizations for several societies and other Canadian biological societies. At the academic level, the CSM has University Faculty and Student representatives.
