The ASCINA Chapter of Greater Washington, DC, which also includes the Baltimore area, is among the oldest ASCINA chapters.
ASCINA DC members work at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), NASA, the International Monetary Found, the Smithsonian Institution, the World Bank, University of Maryland, Johns Hopkins University, Georgetown University, George Washington University, American University, Virginia Tech, think tanks and non-profit organizations. Due to the proximity to the Austrian Embassy we have close ties with the Office of Science and Technology (OST), which also organizes scientific events on a regular basis.
We meet regularly for scientific and social activities.
Every month, on the first Tuesday (with exceptions) we meet at 1pm for lunch at the NIH, Building 10, 2nd floor cafeteria.
Once a month we organize an ASCINA talk, where a member of our group gives an overview over his/her field of research or presents current work. After the talks we typically convene for food and drinks and further discussion.
If you would like to receive email invitations to our events, sign up by sending us an email. We look forward to meeting you!
