As an undergraduate program accredited by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), UMass BMB can offer its majors the opportunity to take the ASBMB Certification Exam, which is given in the spring each year and assesses core competencies in BMB. Of the more than 900 undergraduates at 75 ASBMB-accredited programs who took the exam in 2021, 38.3% earned certification, and 12.6% of the total earned certification with distinction. Overall, 11 BMB students who took the exam this year scored high enough to earn certification, and 6 of these students earned the additional honor of certification with distinction. We congratulate these students on their accomplishment!
