ASBMB President Suzanne Pfeffer advocates ways in which we can en masse improve scientific research.
Several ASBMB members have been recognized for their accomplishments; these include nomination to the National Science Board and election to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies.
Additional investigators have been recognized and rewarded for their contributions to JBC and to science as a whole.
Our public affairs staff has been good and would like a few gifts, including robust NIH funding and a less dysfunctional Congress. Is it too much to wish for?
