The Danish Microbiological Society (DMS) was established in 1958 and is a representative of the international organizations for microbiology; the International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS) and the Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS).

DMS has a vote at the IUMS and FEMS meetings, at which among other things bacterial nomenclature is determined. Thus, the Society holds a position to represent Denmark internationally and to maintain genuine national influence in matters that are determined internationally.

In addition, DMS promotes international scientific meetings in microbiology and related fields for its members.

On the national level, DMS primarily functions as a contact point for Danish microbiological activities. DMS hosts an annual congress in November in Demark and initiates other scientific activities in microbiology.

As a member of the society, you can also join the annual General Assembly and Symposium in Spring.

As its primary means of communication, the Society uses this webpage. You can also sign up for the DMS newsletter and get news directly by email or follow DMS on LinkedIn.
