As an organizational member of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), AAA is also part of a coalition of independent societies that play an active role in advocating for the interests of biomedical and life scientists to Congress and other scientific bodies. While we operate independently, being part of a larger coalition means that no organization is working in a vacuum; we’re part of a larger group and benefit through our power in numbers. Some of our advocacy efforts, for example, are shared by FASEB. Learn more about FASEB membership. At the Federation level, Association interests are represented by AAA members.
