American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Are you passionate about Biomolecular Science?  Are you looking for like-minded individuals?  If so, you’re invited to the inaugural meeting of the St. Olaf student chapter of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Interested students should bring their cafeteria trays to BC142 on MONDAY, OCT 10th at 6PM.  At this organizational meeting, we will share ideas for future activities and select student leadership. 

The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is a national organization that connects students and faculty with interests in this area. Grants from the national organization are available to send undergraduate members to the annual national convention, fund a research project, fund science outreach activities and more!  There may be additional opportunities to organize a mini-symposium or invite a special speaker to our campus.  Student members also have access to the career resources, journals, and professional newsletters of the national organization. 

***Note: The national organization requires an annual membership fee of $20 per student.  If you would like to join but find the cost prohibitive, please speak with Professor Laura Listenberger (RNS 380).  Scholarships are available.  Also, meetings of this group will continue to be open to any student regardless of whether or not they choose to be affiliated with the national organization.

If you cannot attend the meeting but would like to join the student chapter of this organization please contact Professor Listenberger by Friday, October 14th.
