The Pharmaceutical Microbiology Forum (PMF) was founded in 1992 by a small group of microbiologists in the pharmaceutical industry. The goal of the organization was to provide a forum for microbiologists to exchange information on microbiology issues and to interact with USP and regulatory agencies around the world.
The PMF also sponsors a public e-mail list called the PMFList. This e-mail list is devoted to topics of interest to microbiologists working in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, biotechnology, and medical device industries. Today, the PMFList reaches almost 5,000 microbiologists from more than 60 countries. This list aims to provide a voice of the working microbiologist on issues in the pharmaceutical, OTC and personal products industries.
Those wanting to join the PMF should fill out the membership registration form.
