E.E. Just Lectureship
The E.E. Just Lecture and award were endorsed in 1993 to be presented at the Annual Meeting of the ASCB to acknowledge an outstanding minority life scientist. This award is made to an outstanding scientist who serves as a role model to aspiring young scientists and to make the general ASCB membership more aware of the meritorious contributions of minority scientists.

Mission Statement: Preamble
The Minorities Affairs Committee (MAC), one of the standing committees of the American Society for Cell Biology, has as its goal to significantly increase the involvement of underrepresented minority scientists in all aspects of the Society. To achieve this goal we recognize the need to promote the professional development of and to recruit minority scientists. The relatively small size of the pool of scientists with an interest in cell biology requires that we also develop programs for undergraduate and predoctoral students to assist them in achieving careers in biomedical research. A long range goal of the committee is to contribute to the Nation's effort to increase the number of underrepresented minority scientists. The specific objectives of the Committee are:
- To increase diversity among the members of the ASCB.
- To bring issues related to minorities in science to the attention of ASCB members.
- To assist in the professional development of minority scientists and in the education of minority science students.
- To mentor young minority scientists (postdoctoral, young faculty members and industrial scientists), and pre-doctoral and undergraduate students.
- To establish a network involving minority scientists and minority science students.
- To provide minority science students and young scientists with the opportunity to acquire state-of-the-art knowledge and research skills in cell biology.
- To provide opportunities for faculty members at minority-serving institutions to advance their research and teaching effectiveness, and establish long-term professional relationships with ASCB members.
