The annual meeting round-up

Maybe your new favorite T-shirt?

ASBMB T-Shirt This year’s American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology annual meeting T-shirt design comes from the ASBMB Student Chapter at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio.

“We came up with this idea one day while in the research lab,” Erin Hughes, the chapter’s president, said. “A few chapter members were trying to brainstorm what ASBMB and BMB meant to us.”

Chapter member Katie Dodds came up with the idea to use some common research techniques to spell out ASBMB and created the design. Hughes drew up the final design and thought of the phrase “these are a few of my favorite things.”


The Otterbein University ASBMB Student Chapter is a decentralized student chapter that prides itself on allowing everyone to be involved, Hughes said. “We focus on making connections between the members and talking about science in new and fun ways.”

This year’s T-shirt will be sold at the ASBMB booth at Experimental Biology 2019 in Orlando, April 6–9.
