Alumni in the USA reconnect at the ASCB-EMBO conference
In early December, the American Society of Cell Biology (ASCB) held its first ever joint meeting with EMBO in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A key theme of the meeting was Science as an international endeavor. The conference highlighted the importance of inclusiveness and of the exchange of information and ideas beyond national boundaries. In keeping with this theme, EMBL alumni and friends from around the world got together on 3 December for drinks and conversation. It was a great opportunity to renew old friendships, meet new people, and spread the word about the EMBL alumni network in the USA.
