As the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology annual meeting approaches, we have lots of information to share with you! Be sure to check out our coverage of the ASBMB annual award winners and plenary lecturers, all of whom will give talks in Boston later this month. On our cover, we feature Jerry Greenfield, the scientific brain behind the Ben & Jerry's ice cream brand. As always, we have plenty of news from the ASBMB journals. Our "Generations" series continues with looks back and forward from scientists of different generations. Our "Hobbies" series continues with a tale of star-studded travel and a note from a fashion lover who will be one of five annual meeting bloggers and tweeters. Finally, don't miss the essays from Sharon Rozovsky and Karl Booksh, who run a summer undergraduate research program at the University of Delaware for students with disabilities. We hope you enjoy this gigantic issue!
