Information for the Media and Public

The Public Information Committee (PIC) is the outreach arm of the Society, promoting public awareness of the latest advances in cell biology and the crucial importance of basic research for human health. PIC’s major activities in conjunction with the Annual Meeting are a science news service and onsite ASCB Newsroom for journalists, the Celldance Studios “Tell Your Own Cell Story” commissioned videos, the One-Minute “Selfie” Elevator Speech Contest, and the juried stand-up comedy slam, “Zombie CellSlam.” Year round, PIC supports science communications training and outreach media projects to open the eyes and ears of the world to cell biology.
