It is my hope that ASBMB eventually will participate in the GEMS program, sponsoring students interested in biochemistry and molecular biology. This would allow ASBMB to use the GEMS infrastructure without having to create a program de novo. GEMS would benefit, too, by having additional research areas for students to explore. You can find out more about GEMS and other summer research opportunities by visiting the ASBMB Web site.
