Members of the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS) are scientists who have contributed substantially to the recognition of the critical role of mutation in the etiology of cancer. The EMGS is currently the primary intellectual forum for researchers interested in the development and application of transgenic technology of toxicological studies and for the development of methods for studying mutations and the mechanisms of mutation and DNA repair in model cellular systems as well as humans.
Members have many opportunities to collaborate with fellow members and engage in leadership activities through participation on Committees, Special Interest Groups, and at the Annual Meetings.
The Annual Meetings of the EMGS provide an important setting for the presentation of data emerging from the Human Genome Project, especially mutation spectra, mutational mechanisms, and new techniques for detection of mutation and genomic instability in humans. EMGS members receive reduced registration fees to attend the meeting and may submit or sponsor up to four abstracts for each meeting.
Members receive a discounted subscription to the Society’s journal, Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis, as well as other journals.
Members keep current with Society activities and other scientific issues through EMGS Connect and benefit from membership in the International Association of Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Societies (IAEMGS) as well as job postings on the EMGS website.
Recognition of your peers is an invaluable benefit. As a member of EMGS you are eligible to receive special recognition from your peers as well as nominate a colleague for EMGS Awards.
