Drs. Faten Taki and Aashiq Mirza, postdoctoral fellows in the Pharmacology Dept. in Dr. Toth and Dr. Jaffrey’s labs, respectively, participated in a Life Sciences Fair on Capitol Hill.

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.
