The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) was founded in 1960 to bring the varied facets of cell biology together. The Society's purpose is to promote and develop the field of cell biology. Its objectives are achieved through the scholarly dissemination of research at its Annual Meeting and Summer Meetings in its publications. The ASCB 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. Since its founding, the ASCB has grown to more than 11,000 members. Members are located throughout the United States and in 50 other countries.
Membership in the ASCB is open to all scientists who have education or research experience in cell biology or an allied field. Full members should have a Ph.D. or other professional degree (e.g., M.D., D.V.M), or have equivalent experience in scientific research. Successful application requires sponsorship by one Regular or Postdoctoral member of the Society. Student membership is available to candidates in good standing for a doctoral degree. Membership includes scientists in universities, colleges, professional schools, government, industry, and public and private research institutions. A special non-voting membership category is available to corporations that provide products and services for research in the life sciences.
