2021 Annual Meeting
Daniel Raben

"The ASBMB not only provides a forum for hearing some great science in and out of my field, they have been leading charges to protect the scientific community during times of difficult funding environments."

Margaret Kanipes

"The ASBMB helps me stay current in my field while also mentoring the next generation of scientific leaders at the nation's largest HBCU."

Sonia Flores

"The ASBMB has always been a pioneer in issues of diversity and inclusion and recently, on issues of sexual harassment in STEM academic fields. I am immensely proud to be part of this community."
