This fair, sponsored by FASEB, showcased federally funded research. About 200 people, including many Congressional staff members, attended. Drs. Taki and Mirza ran a WCM booth and held a workshop titled: Make your own DNA Necklace. (They brought suitcases with lots of detergents to Capitol Hill for this!) What a wonderful way for scientists to interact with interested government officials!! Here is a picture of them with one of Rep. Maloney’s staff members.
