     The ASCB offers these awards to introduce science
     teachers to contemporary questions in science and to a
     related research experience that together provide the
     science educator with a fresh perspective of biomedical
     research.  The program exposes science educators to new
     information and techniques in biomedical research,
     which they are encouraged to disseminate to students
     and colleagues.  Development of new laboratory teaching
     exercises is a required component of the program.
