ASBMB Today March 2017

The cover story for this issue is written by a high-school biology teacher who teaches cell biology by getting his students to run social-media campaigns. There also is a Q&A with Kenneth Gibbs, Jr. who published a paper with his colleagues a few months ago that tackles the issue of diversity in medical school faculty. As always, the magazine offers a variety of stories, such as journal news, member updates and essays. Read the March issue .
