Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, abbreviated FASEB, is a non-profit organization that is the principal umbrella organization of U.S. societies in the field of biological and medical research. FASEB organizes academic conferences and publishes scientific literature, including the "FASEB Journal".

FASEB was founded in 1912 by three societies. In 1989, its then six constituent societies agreed to broaden the scope of the federation and has since grown to currently 21 individual member organizations:cite web |url=http://www.faseb.org/faseb/WhatIsFASEB.html |title= What is FASEB? | publisher=Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) |accessdate=2008-04-06]
