Testimonials

  • I loved having the opportunity to attend seminars that taught me how to improve myself as a leader, a student, and a scientist. I am so thankful to ASCB for its generous award that helped make this trip possible for me.

  • I value my membership in ASCB because it enables me to interact with the leaders in cell biology research and education. The discussions and ideas I have had with other ASCB members has fueled my research and teaching career and made me a better scientist!

    Mike Wolyniak, Assistant ProfessorHampden-Sydney College
  • I have been a member of ASCB since I was a graduate student. I love being part of ASCB because the society is constantly expanding into new frontiers of science. I particularly enjoyed and benefited from the sessions highlighting the scientific opportunities in foreign countries.

  • The childcare award offers fantastic support for dual career families. My husband and I used the award so we could both attend this year's ASCB meeting. Since our mutual success is essential for our future, this was extremely helpful.

  • Thanks for giving community college teachers free meeting registration! Attending the meeting was a great reminder for me of the reasons why I went into a science career, and my friends said that they have not seen me so excited about my work in many years.

    James F. Guenther, FacultyDelgado Community College
  • I value the generosity of ASCB and its continued effort to provide financial support to help students and postdocs attend the annual meeting. Receiving the childcare award eased the financial burden associated with attending a scientific conference, and was greatly appreciated!

  • The travel award made it possible for my student and me to attend since I don’t have access to enough funds to go without assistance. My student presented her work and I connected with colleagues and learned about cutting edge work in cell biology.  It is like getting multiple meetings in one! Thank you for the opportunity to attend.

  • As an international student, it is difficult to obtain funding to attend research events and programs on a national scale. This ASCB travel award enabled me to participate in my first national research conference, where I won first place in the Minorities Affairs Committee poster competition. This award gave me the opportunity to contribute to the scientific community while learning from others. I am greatly appreciative.

  • My favorite part of the annual meeting is the poster sessions. Not only could I discuss my research with other cell biologists, but I also had opportunities to network to develop my career.
