bioAffinity Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: BIAF; BIAFW), a biotechnology company focused on the need for noninvasive, accurate tests for the detection of early-stage cancer and lung disease, today announced that David Elzi, Ph.D., bioAffinity Technologies Vice President of Research, has been named to the Membership Committee of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB).
First organized in 1960, ASCB is an international organization of cell biologists dedicated to advancing scientific discovery, advocating sound research policies, improving education, promoting professional development and increasing diversity in the scientific workforce.
The Membership Committee is responsible for implementing programs and services to meet the needs of the ASCB’s membership and support its mission and strategic plan, including recruiting new members and retaining current members.
“As a member of the Society for more than a decade, I know firsthand the value of bringing scientists with related research interests together to share information, work through challenges and promote the importance of cell biology to government officials, educators and the general public,” Dr. Elzi said. “I look forward to working with the Society’s leadership to strengthen ASCB programs and encourage more participation from the industry/biotech side of our discipline.”
Dr. Elzi will host a roundtable at Cell Bio 2023, the collaborative conference of ASCB and the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO), to discuss transferable skills that can make the transition from academia into the biotech industry easier and facilitate a successful job search. Aimed at students, post-docs and research scientists, the roundtable will be held Dec. 3, 2023, at 1:15 p.m. ET at the Boston Convention Center.
