I'm Phil Bailey and I work for Werfen UK in the Autoimmune and Infectious Disease Division. I am on the WAM committee as the Trade Representative, a position I have held since I was invited to join in the summer of 2011.
My first encounter with what WAM is really all about was when I attended the WAM symposium in 2011 as a trade delegate. I was impressed by the hard work that the committee had done for microbiology over the past 30 years, so had no hesitation in accepting the invitation to join WAM.
Being part of the committee has allowed me to engage with a wider part of the microbiology community than I otherwise would be able to. The symposiums and evening meets organised by the committee have been a great source of education and networking for the past 35 years.
Being a part of WAM provides a great opportunity to contribute to future symposiums and meetings.
