The ASBMB UAN is a national organization comprised of university-based chapters dedicated to the advancement of undergraduate research, research-based undergraduate education, and K-12 outreach in biochemistry and molecular biology, according to its website. The organization helps scholars of similar backgrounds and pursuits to connect and network nationally through seminars, conferences and research opportunities.
