Welcome to British Infection Association
Submitted by admin on August 6, 2012 - 12:50
The British Infection Association was formed when the British Infection Society formally merged with the Association of Medical Microbiologists in 2009. Now with over 1400 members, the BIA exists to promote the science and practice of medicine in relation to infection, to support all infection specialists and trainees, and to further research into infection.
