Biochemists and Molecular Biologists to Present Cutting-Edge Research at ASBMB Virtual Annual Meeting


ROCKVILLE, Md., Oct. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will hold its annual meeting, in conjunction with the Experimental Biology conference, in a virtual, interactive format April 27?30, 2021. Society officials are expecting thousands of academic, biotech and pharmaceutical industry scientists to present their latest studies, exchange ideas and forge new collaborations during the meeting.

The meeting organizers have invited pioneers and innovators in the field to develop 22 scientific symposia covering such topics as cancer, cholesterol, neurodegenerative diseases, genetics and gene editing, and stem cells.  

There also will be more than 50 sessions highlighting studies by young investigators, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. These so-called Spotlight Sessions will present findings relating to, among other things, lipids and membranes, molecular machines, RNA and disease, and metabolism.

Hundreds of virtual poster presentations will offer even deeper insights into the latest disease-related and basic research.

In addition, there will be a dozen award lectures by leading scientists recognized by their peers for their contributions to biochemistry and molecular biology research, education, and diversity and inclusion in the research community. Many ASBMB award winners go on to achieve further recognition later, so now is the time to get to know these promising scientists.

Members of the media will be invited in early 2021 to sign up for access to the Experimental Biology virtual newsroom, where they will find news releases, information and multimedia relating to scientific studies, speakers, news conferences and other special events.
