ASBMB Annual Meeting virtual posters

Though the 2020 ASBMB Annual Meeting has been canceled, we can still come together virtually to share our research.

Those who were programmed for a poster presentation at the 2020 ASBMB Annual Meeting can participate in the ASBMB's virtual poster presentations on YouTube.

Record a video of you presenting your research, upload it to YouTube and then submit your virtual poster presentation to us.

"I’ve been a member of ASBMB since I was a graduate student in the 1980’s. I’ve always been fascinated by molecular mechanisms of biological processes, and this is the best place to learn more about that. ASBMB is my scientific home."

Nicole Woitowich

"The ASBMB has been an integral part of my career path, providing me with the resources, tools, and professional network to succeed — first as a trainee, and now as a professional."

Hao Wu

"I am delighted to be a long term member of ASBMB, which not only represents the core disciplines in my research but also helps me to stay connected with the field at large. It is a wonderful resource for all of us researchers and educators."

Joseph Chaney

"I am a member of the ASBMB because of the community the society provides along with a wealth of knowledge and resources."
