FASEB welcomes The Histochemical Society as its newest member

July 08, 2011

Bethesda, MD - At its Board of Directors meeting on June 6, The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) voted to accept the membership application of The Histochemical Society (HCS) as the 24th member of the Federation effective July 1. "We are pleased to welcome HCS to the federation," stated FASEB President, Joseph C. LaManna, PhD. "This is a critical time for biomedical research, and we look forward to their contributions to our advocacy agenda."

"FASEB is the organization that legislators, federal agencies, and the media turn to for information on policies related to biomedical science and engineering," said Nancy M. Sawtell, PhD, President of HCS. Founded in 1950, HCS is an organization of scientists dedicated to the development and application of new technologies in molecular pathology and cell biology. HCS is also devoted to providing opportunities to underrepresented groups and young investigators. "A partnership with FASEB and its member societies will amplify our voice in the important policy decisions affecting our field."

FASEB is composed of 24 societies with more than 100,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. FASEB enhances the ability of scientists and engineers to improve--through their research--the health, well-being and productivity of all people. Our mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
