National Science Foundation (NSF) grantees will contribute a wide range of insights and research findings at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), in such areas as the biological determinants of circadian functions, the regulation of cells by proteins and the effects of wave-driven chemicals on coral reefs. The meeting will be held from December 9-13 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.
Attached are abstracts describing research projects by NSF -funded scientists speaking at ASCB symposia. NSF-funded scientists speaking at major ASCB symposia include:
