Stand Up for Science Competition

From the creation of flu vaccines and new cancer therapies to enhancing agriculture and developing biofuels, bioscience breakthroughs are transforming our world and our health at a rapid pace. However, many Americans are not aware of the critical role the US federal government plays in supporting biological research and discovery.

In 2013, FASEB held a Stand Up for Science video competition. The goal was to solicit entries that create an exciting, yet informative video to help educate Americans on how science is funded!  Below are the winners of this competition.
