Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) is comprised of 21 individual member societies that share a common purpose for medical research and biological studies. The FASEB acts as an advocate and umbrella organization for presenting conferences, interacting with government, publishing work in progress and peer-review studies. FASEB was established in 1912 with only three societies and has grown in scope and member numbers steadily over the years.
