Molecular Biologists

Thanks to generous donations to the AMP Leadership Fund, each year up to five  non-U.S. laboratory professionals who would not otherwise have access to AMP services and activities due to limited financial resources in the applicant’s local environment may apply to receive one year of AMP  membership at no charge.  Successful applicants receive AMP regular membership for one calendar year and online access to The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics.

If you are not an international member but have international colleagues who may be interested,  please forward this information to them.
