The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) was founded in 1961 to bring together the varied facets of cell biology. Now representing more than 11,000 members, the Society’s objective is to provide for the exchange of scientific knowledge in the area of cell biology. It does so through the scholarly dissemination of research at its Annual Meeting and in its publications, Molecular Biology of the Cell and Cell Biology Education, and strives to ensure the future of basic scientific research by providing training and development opportunities for students and young investigators, and also by keeping Congress and the American public informed about the importance of biomedical research.
