The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) is hosting an interactive Web chatroom about cells on Friday, November 2, 2012, from 10:00 am–3:00 pm EDT.
Called “Cell Day,” the chat will be an online Q & A. Middle and high school students can post questions about cell biology or scientific careers and NIGMS staff scientists will provide written answers. Members of the ASCB are welcome to log on and view the chatroom live or access the transcript, which will be available shortly after the chat is over.
More information about Cell Day, including how students and teachers can register to participate, is available at http://publications.nigms.nih.gov/cellday2012/index.html. The event is one of the ways that NIGMS is marking its 50th anniversary. For other anniversary-related activities, see http://www.nigms.nih.gov/About/50Anniversary/.
