Black Microbiologists Association

Increasing Visibility. Facilitating Connection. Moving Microbiology Forward.

The Black Microbiologists Association (BMA) was created in response to the sustained underrepresentation of Black people in microbiological education, training and research both here in the U.S. and globally. It is part of our mission to push back against the narrative of scarcity that is so often used to explain the lack of Black representation in microbiology and science more broadly.

The Talent Network is a platform to connect organizations and institutions with Black Microbiologists Association (BMA) members. Visitors can view the Member Directory to meet our members. Black microbiologists can apply to join the organization, and add their profile to the Talent Network.
