ASCB CellSlam

Sponsored by the ASCB Public Information Committee, Supported by Nikon Instruments, Inc.

Last year’s CellSlam in Washington, DC, attracted a judging panel of distinguished science journalists from the New York Times, the Washington Post, Science, and Nature. The judges watched open-mouthed as cell biologists rapped, sang, recited poetry, and waved cheerleading pom-poms. The journalists’ verdict? CellSlam has to be seen to be believed.
