Submit a Proposal for a Science Research Conference

The FASEB Science Research Conferences (SRCs), began in 1982 to promote dialogue between researchers in the biomedical field.  These conferences welcome prominent scientists, faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students conducting cutting-edge research in areas experiencing rapid scientific advances. The SRCs are traditionally small workshop-style, averaging between 100-150 participants, and are held over five days. The FASEB SRCs provide ample networking opportunities for seasoned scientists, junior investigators and trainees. Attendees are encouraged to submit abstracts for poster or short talk consideration, share meals together, and network with each other as well as leaders in the field during the poster sessions, career-oriented workshops and “Meet the Expert” sessions.

The FASEB SRCs are held year-round at various locations such as Palm Beach, FL, Saxtons River, VT, Steamboat Springs, CO, Snowmass, CO and Big Sky, MT, in the United States. Recent international locations include Germany, Italy and Portugal.

Individuals interested in organizing a FASEB SRC and submitting a proposal must hold an advanced medical or doctoral degree, and should have a track record in the field. Written proposals are processed and submitted annually in November to the FASEB SRC Advisory Committee for formal review and consideration. While the SRC Advisory Committee is comprised of representatives from the FASEB member societies, it is not necessary for a potential conference organizer to be a member of a FASEB society in order to submit a proposal to the Committee.
