Our society is now part of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB). Founded in 1912, FASEB was originally created by three independent scientific organizations to provide a forum in which to hold educational meetings, develop publications, and disseminate biological research results. What started as a small group of dedicated scientists has grown to be the nation’s largest coalition of biomedical researchers, representing 29 scientific societies and over 130,000 researchers from around the world.
FASEB is now recognized as the policy voice of biological and biomedical researchers. FASEB focuses on policy issues important to and affecting biomedical researchers and their work. To support research efforts, our top priority is urging Congress to provide sustainable and predictable federal funding for scientific research. Check out the Science Policy and Advocacy web page (https://www.faseb.org/Science-Policy-and-Advocacy) to find out more. And also sign up for Action Alerts (https://www.faseb.org/Science-Policy-and-Advocacy/Become-an-Advocate/Legislative-Action-Center) so you can contribute to the advocacy efforts of FASEB. (an action alert on NIH/NSF funding in the next COVID bill.)
FASEB provides professional development opportunities and information for our undergraduate, postgraduate, postdoctoral, or seasoned scientists. It provides professional training webinars, lists of job/fellowship opportunities, and an online career planning tool.
FASEB is committed to the health and safety of biological and biomedical researchers, as well as the scientific enterprise. FASEB monitors the rapidly evolving situation around the COVID-19 pandemic and provide information and resources to help you stay informed.
