The Major Groove

The Major Groove is Wesleyan's official ASBMB (American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) student chapter. Students in the Major Groove are able to apply for ASBMB scholarships and research grants and access ASBMB resources to learn about career and internship opportunities and public policy initiatives.

On campus, the Major Groove organizes academic, social, and outreach events throughout the year. The Major Groove typically hosts welcome lunches, pre-registration events, and other gatherings for students in the major to get to know and support each other as they pursue the major. The group has also recently worked with Cardinal Kids (a teaching group organized by Wesleyan students) to plan science themed events at Wesleyan's R. J. Julia bookstore.
