The 2016 ASBMB Annual Meeting will feature two new sessions organized by graduate students and postdocs. The “Straight from the Bench” symposia feature new and emerging topics of great interest to these young scientists, and we expect that they will pique your interest too.

Each “Straight from the Bench” symposium will have:

  • two keynote speakers,
  • talks by graduate student and postdoctoral scientists who were chosen from volunteered abstracts, and
  • a networking reception. 

To be considered for an oral presentation within this thematic program,  submit your abstract to a “Straight from the Bench” topic category (#2000 - #2009) by Nov. 5. Oral presentations selected from volunteered abstracts also will be programmed for poster presentations. Programming notifications will be sent in mid-January.  We look forward to seeing you there!
