ASM Microbe 2016 and Bill Gates are coming to Boston in June!

Are you going to ASM Microbe 2016? 

This year, ASM is bringing its two most popular events, ASM General Meeting and ICAAC, under one roof to create ASM Microbe 2016. Don’t miss this event June 16–20, 2016 in Boston, Mass. – and be sure to catch the opening keynote with Bill Gates!

Richard Besser, chief health and medical editor, ABC News, will interview Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and business leader, to discuss the state of global health today and the important role that microbial science plays basic and translational research to foster transformative innovations in development. Bill Gates has devoted his career to helping people lead healthier, more productive lives since stepping down from Microsoft. Gates and his wife, Melinda, established the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 1996, which focuses on improving education and health care for children across the globe. Since the foundation’s inception, it has raised $4 billion in donations to support college scholarships for minority students, the Global Fund for Children’s Vaccines, the prevention of the spread of AIDS among South African youth, and the effort to eradicate polio. Find out more about how Bill Gates brings people together to address the greatest global health challenges we face and his thoughts on what needs to change in order to advance innovation.

We hope that you will stop by the KMC Systems booth #707 at ASM2016 to meet the team and talk about your upcoming projects and any challenges that you've encountered in medical design and manufacturing. Tap into our knowledge base for ideas and solutions.
