The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is now accepting applications for its annual Student/Postdoc Capitol 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 promote scientific research by directly interacting with policymakers. The deadline to apply is Feb. 10. The event will be March 27–29.
