I can hardly believe EB2013 is two days away! I am pleasantly overwhelmed by all the great science that will be presented at the meeting. Check out this year’s ASBMB Award Winners. You definitely don’t want to miss out on hearing their lectures.
Don’t miss the programs sponsored by the ASBMB Public Affairs Advisory Council! Sessions and workshops include How Scientists Can Save the World, Public Outreach and Science Communication, and From the Lab to the Kitchen Table – Communicating Science to a Lay Audience. The role of scientists as advocates for science is crucial, particularly, during these difficult financial times caused by the sequester. Learn how YOU can make medical research a national priority through public outreach and effective communication!
