ASBMB advocacy town hall meeting

12:15-1:45 p.m.

Increasingly, policies developed and enacted in Washington are having an impact on how your science is funded, how your grants are reviewed and how reliable the future workforce of the research community will be. Serving the ASBMB membership proudly, the Public Affairs Advisory Committee and Office of Public Affairs regularly engages on your behalf with the Administration, the Congress and the individual funding agencies.

This Advocacy Town Hall is an opportunity to share your stories, and to tell the PAAC what policy areas you want to see the ASBMB taking a leadership role in. Hosted by Public Affairs Director Benjamin Corb, and PAAC Chair Terri Kinzy, the Advocacy Town Hall will allow you to engage in a conversation with our policy leaders, to hear about the critical policy issues facing the community, and ask questions.

Join us for the second annual science communication competition. This event features 10 speakers who will share their science in just three minutes with only one slide. In addition to distilling their research down to its essence, presenters must work to eliminate scientific jargon so that their presentation is understood by specialists and non-specialists alike. The audience will play a major role in selecting winners, so join us and vote for your favorite.
