The Cosmetics And Pharmaceuticals Special Interest Group (CAPSIG) is a special interest group of the Australian Society for Microbiology (ASM). It has existed for over 20 years and has become an important medium for further professional development for microbiologists working in the therapeutics and related industries.

There is currently a National Convenor and two State branches based in New South Wales and Queensland. The State branches organise several seminars each year covering topics of interest and relevance to the industry.

Additionally, symposia and workshops are often organised for the ASM National Scientific Meetings which are held annually. CAPSIG is run as a not-for-profit organisation and its committees are run by industry volunteers.

CAPSIG engages with industry by offering sponsorships of seminars and holding occasional information evenings. The purpose of this website is to keep interested parties informed about the activities of CAPSIG. Thank you for visiting our website.
