The Celldance Video Project is a high profile opportunity for ASCB members to hone their science communication skills and present the excitement-and impact-of their research.

Each year the ASCB PIC (Public Information Committee) solicits proposals from ASCB member labs for short videos that tell the story behind their research. ASCB awards three selected labs a small unrestricted grant to partially cover production costs. ASCB provides post-production services including final editing, title and credits, legal music if needed, and promotion.
