The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is now accepting applications for our annual Student/Postdoc Hill Day! Every year, the ASBMB brings trainees from across the country to meet with their Congressional leaders in Washington, D.C. This fully-funded opportunity gives trainees the chance to help promote scientific research by directly interacting with policymakers. The deadline to apply is March 25. The event will be April 27-28.
Arriving on Wednesday, April 27, participants will take part in an orientation session focused on the federal budget process and communicating with members of Congress. On Thursday, April 28, participants will travel to Capitol Hill to meet with members of Congress. In exchange for your time and efforts, we provide transportation, lodging and meals during your stay in Washington, D.C.
