Welcome aboard!

The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology election returns are just in, and our society is delighted to welcome a new group of leaders:

We are fortunate that all of these active, practicing scientists are willing to generously share their time, talents and attention to the ASBMB. We are a society of scientists serving the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology. We care about many things, including education, the preservation of scientific rigor in our fields, and the importance of helping build and sustain an enterprise that is driven by merit and totally committed to a fair and open playing field.

I close by affirming my delight in the prospects of working with President-elect Natalie Ahn over the next few years. Natalie and I have decided to join forces in organizing the 2017 annual meeting of the ASBMB, and we have already worked together for the past two years on the ASBMB Council. All of us who are associated with our society shoulder the vital responsibility of championing the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology so that successive generations may inherit the grit and substance we inherited from our forbearers.
