Black history in the making: A postdoc research talk series (Part I)

An ASBMB Maximizing Access Committee and National Black Postdoctoral Association collaboration in observance of Black History Month

Feb. 16, 2023 | 2–3 p.m. Eastern | Free registration required

The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology MAC strives to increase the presence, visibility, access and support of historically excluded and marginalized groups. In recognition of Black History Month and the significant role Black scientists have in advancing biomedical research, the MAC is partnering with the NBPA to highlight the research of Black postdocs in a virtual research talk series that will cover a range of BMB topics. Each of the two events will feature three speakers.

Come and learn about the innovative research that BMB postdocs are doing.
