  • Present your work — Get noticed when you share your findings at this highly regarded research forum. Practice communicating your science to audiences of varying interests and specialties.
  • Circulate your findings — Contribute to the community’s collective body of knowledge by sharing your successes and challenges.
  • Gain a competitive advantage — Get a step ahead of other job seekers by presenting your findings in front of experts and employers whose work you know and admire.
  • Find new collaborators — Forge partnerships with other scientists with shared interests.

Abstracts presented at #DiscoverBMB 2024 will be published in a virtual supplement to the Journal of Biological Chemistry, one of the ASBMB's gold open-access publications.
