Friday is the Last Day to Vote for the Next ASBMR Leaders! Cast Your Ballots Today!

The 2017 ASBMR Election closes tomorrow! Voting for ASBMR Officers and Councilors is an important benefit of active membership. All current ASBMR members should have received an e-mail inviting them to cast their electronic ballot. If you have not done so already, we urge you to cast your vote today for President-Elect, Secretary-Treasurer-Elect, and three members of Council. ASBMR elections are historically close races, where some candidates are decided by only a few votes. Every vote truly counts!

FASEB BioArt Competition is Open - Submit Today!

Each day, scientific investigators produce thousands of images and videos as a part of their research; however, only a few are ever seen outside of the laboratory. Through their BioArt competition, FASEB aims to share the beauty and breadth of biological research with the public. Contestants include investigators, contractors, or trainees with current or past research funding from a US federal agency and members of FASEB societies. Submit your most visually compelling research image or video by August 31, 2017.
