ASBMB Receives NSF Award

NSFThe American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology recently was awarded a National Science Foundation Research Coordination Network Undergraduate Biology Education (RCN-UBE) grant worth $370,000.  The grant will support a five-year project that will bring hundreds of life scientists together to develop a rich central resource for biochemistry and molecular biology educators.
 
The online hub will include biochemistry and molecular biology core concepts, assessment tools and effective pedagogical approaches. 

The project will be led by J. Ellis Bell, a professor of chemistry at the University of Richmond and past chairman of the ASBMB Education and Professional Development Committee; Cheryl Bailey, an assistant professor of biochemistry at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln; Hal White, a professor at University of Delaware; Duane Sears, a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara; Margaret Johnson, an associate professor at the University of Alabama; and Carla Mattos, an associate professor at North Carolina State University.

ASBMB will bring together educators and researchers across the country this fall to participate in a series of one-day workshops designed to develop and evaluate biochemistry and molecular biology foundational concepts.
