Celldance 2013, ASCB's Really Useful Cell Biology Video Contest, has engineered a truly simple PDF download of the "Mad Mice" poster. Suitable for high-resolution color printers or screen savers, the "Mad Mice" poster serves a double purpose—it will make your lab bench or office space pop (graphically) and it reminds you to enter your short video that illustrates a basic cell mechanism or process by October 31.

#WeAreResearch Contest

Written by

ASCB needs your face, your voice, and your creativity to show Congress that basic research has a human dimension.

And #WeAreResearch is making this a contest or rather two contests, with prizes—some for you but all for the good of American science and health.

Sequestration: Journal of a Fiscal Plague Year

Written by

America's uncontrolled experiment in eyes-closed sequestration of research funding has George F. Will of the Washington Post worried.

Will writes, "NIH scientists seek intensely practical, meaning preventive and therapeutic, things that can save society more than any sequester can."

Can Women in Science Live Happily Ever After?

I grew up under the impression that art or even literature were not for smart people. I was also very interested in nature, plants, and animals, especially the exquisite cell life visible through a microscope. So I decided to be a biologist.
