About Experimental Biology (EB)
Experimental Biology (EB) is an annual meeting comprised of over 14,000 scientists and exhibitors representing six sponsoring societies and multiple guest societies. The six host societies are:
- American Association of Anatomists (AAA)
- The American Physiological Society (APS)
- American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)
- American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP)
- American Society for Nutrition (ASN)
- American Society for Pharmacology & Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET)
This multidisciplinary, scientific meeting features plenary and award lectures, pre-meeting workshops, oral and posters sessions, on-site career services and exhibits of an array of equipment, supplies and publications required for research labs and experimental study.
General fields of study include anatomy, biochemistry and molecular biology, investigative pathology, nutrition, pharmacology, and physiology. EB is open to all members of the sponsoring and guest societies and nonmembers with interest in research and life sciences. The majority of scientists represent university and academic institutions as well as government agencies, non-profit organizations and private corporations.
About The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)
The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) was founded in 1906. The roots of the society were in the American Physiological Society, which had been formed 20 years earlier.
ASBMB was originally called the American Society of Biological Chemists, before obtaining its current name in 1987. ASBMB’s mission is to advance the science of biochemistry and molecular biology through publication of scientific and educational journals, the organization of scientific meetings, advocacy for funding of basic research and education, support of science education at all levels, and by promoting the diversity of individuals entering the scientific workforce. The organization currently has over 12,000 members.
The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology publishes The Journal of Biological Chemistry, Molecular & Cellular Proteomics, and The Journal of Lipid Research and the monthly magazine ASBMB Today. ASBMB journals are peer-reviewed and cover research in the fields of microbiology, molecular genetics, RNA-related research, proteomics, genomics, transcription, peptides, cell signaling, lipidomics, and systems biology.
ASBMB hosts and sponsors numerous meetings each year. The annual meeting is held each April in conjunction with the Experimental Biology meeting. Additionally, themed special symposia are organized throughout the year.
