The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology's (FASEB) role in formulating U.S. science policy is indisputable. By virtue of its size, diversity and active relationship with working scientists, FASEB is a respected source of information and influence for policymaking legislators and federal agencies. FASEB represents over 100,000 scientists and comprises 24 member societies. The ASBMR joined FASEB in 1997.
FASEB’s mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to their member societies and collaborative advocacy. Working scientists develop and deliver FASEB's public affairs positions. Member societies select representatives to serve on the FASEB Board of Directors, its Public Affairs Executive Committee (PAEC) and Science Policy Committee (SPC). Members of the ASBMR - through these committees and others and individually - have long played an active role in FASEB. FASEB is now recognized as the policy voice of biological and biomedical researchers.
FASEB, like ASBMR, is committed to nurturing and developing future generations of basic and clinical scientists, fostering the integration of clinical and basic science, and facilitating the translation of science to health care and clinical practice.
