CellSlam award goes to Geoff Hunt
NIH Director Dr. Elias Zerhouni awarded Geoff Hunt an official NIH pin for his performance at CellSlam, the 2007 ASCB “Show Me the Science!” Stand-Up Science Poetry Slam. Seven finalists were each allowed 3 minutes without audio-visual devices to make a science issue, concept, or discovery come alive before a live, standing-room-only audience. The celebrated panel of judges included Dr. Zerhouni, science journalists from The New York Times, the Washington Post, and NPR, editors from Nature and Science magazines, and several members of the ASCB. Geoff performed a scientific rendering of Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice , " providing a colorful description of graduate student life at the bench.
