FAScinate is a play on the word “fascinate” combined with “FASc”, the abbreviation for Fellow of the Academy of Sciences Malaysia. Befitting the title itself, this programme features ASM Fellows who will fascinate and educate the audience with insights into the Fellow’s expertise and experience.
Previously called ASM Fellows’ Lecture Series, the rebranding of this intellectual series follows ASM’s 25th Anniversary. FAScinate features a renewed format, transitioning from a formal lecture style into a more casual engagement that is hoped to garner more public interest in science.
