Feb. 23, 2023 | Duration: 55 mins.

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 partnered with the NBPA to highlight the research of Black postdocs in a virtual research talk series that covers a range of BMB topics. Each of the two events features three speakers.

Learn about the innovative research that BMB postdocs are doing.
