ASBMB members take to Capitol Hill

In mid-March, the public affairs office escorted several ASBMB members to Capitol Hill to promote funding for scientific research. Participants went to a “Policy 101” training session before breaking into small groups for a full day of congressional meetings. This annual event serves to get young researchers involved in science advocacy and to expose them to how the government works.
