The Leadership Grant for International Educators enables a select group of microbiology/biology/health science undergraduate educators from resource-limited countries to attend the ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) and a pre-conference workshop in order to provide these future leaders in STEM education with the resources to develop and pilot innovative pedagogy and learning modules that engage students and lead to enduring understandings in microbiology/biology/health science.

Program Description

The goals of this program are to provide educational leaders from resource-limited countries with training in the latest developments in microbiology education in order to improve microbiology and STEM education in their home country and to build capacity for disseminating change within their local and national STEM educational communities.

Participants will receive training through a three pronged approach:

  • Participants will attend a full-day interactive leadership training workshop that will demonstrate how to use ASM resources to build innovative teaching and learning modules that engage students and lead to enduring understandings in microbiology.
  • Participants will join a community of approximately 350 microbiology and biology educators at the ASMCUE, the premier biological science education conference for undergraduate faculty that provides scientific and education professional development through plenary sessions, discussion and working groups, posters, and exhibits. The ASMCUE features an exchange of best practices and largest challenges in teaching.
  • Participants will join a one-year virtual learning community that will continue to provide training and assistance after returning to their institutions.
  • Participants will develop an outreach plan for training faculty in their home country.


Application Deadline: October 1, 2014

Funding: ASM will provide up to $3,000 US dollars towards round trip economy airfare to the US & ground transportation to the conference. Complimentary registration and conference housing is provided to recipients.

Using tried and tested methods of constructing habitats from ethnobotanical and ethnozoological useful species for self sustainability on Mars

Posted by Andrew Planet on June 26, 2020 at 8:00am 0 Comments

To maximize crop yields on Mars it would be advantageous to do away with annuals and biannuals by engineering the latter into perennials as standard. Not only would that entail far less work to grow produce as the act of replanting is made obsolete, but per given cultivated area perennials bring forth more food and materials with less demand from the soil than the equivalent of annuals.

Imagine a superfood annual such as lentils engineered into a lentil tree for which there already…

This paper greatly extends the possibility of what a Goldilocks zone can be.  Its no longer the Goldilocks zone as a single expanse, its the Goldilocks zones for a particular area

¿Are the Venusian sulphuric acid clouds the by product of long dead anoxogenic photosynthetic organisms?

Posted by Andrew Planet on May 4, 2020 at 2:51pm 2 Comments

I just read the piece at the link below entitled "Study: Life might survive, and thrive, in a hydrogen world."

I'd been thinking on similar lines recently, on different atmospheres with early life, but I was considering anoxogenic bacteria whose byproduct is sulfur instead of molecular oxygen. ¿Had life evolved on Venus could its sulfuric clouds be the signature byproduct of such life with no branches ever evolving to produce the equivalent of Earth's Great…
