Submit an SRC Proposal
Do you want to help shape the future of bioscience research? FASEB invites your proposals for new Science Research Conferences (SRCs) that explore leading-edge bioscience and primary research.
By bringing a meeting focused on emerging science to the FASEB SRC Series, you are able to advance international discussion in your field and quicken research in academic, industrial, and government laboratories.
Acting collaboratively with FASEB, you share the responsibility for convening a global forum for the exhibition of pioneering bioscience and the fostering of dynamic and inclusive networks among leading scientists.
About Our Organizers
FASEB SRCs are organized by leading biomedical researchers from around the world. Conferences give the biological and biomedical community a space to present and discuss new and innovative research in those areas undergoing rapid scientific advances.
It is expected that conferences will be of interest to a minimum of 100 participants (including speakers). Organizers typically raise $25,000 USD in sponsor support (not counting FASEB seed money) to participate.
All scientific aspects of the conference, marketing, and fundraising are driven by the organizers. Accepted conferences receive assistance from FASEB with site selection, contracting, marketing, grant writing support, and logistics management.
To submit a proposal, potential organizers are not required to be affiliated with FASEB. All conferences are scheduled two years in advance.
Review all organizer responsibilites.

Proposal Review and Decision
Proposals are reviewed by the FASEB SRC Advisory Committee in late fall; the committee’s decisions are then conveyed via email. Organizers with approved conferences will select and finalize their conference dates in early 2020. Once sites are finalized in the spring, the FASEB Grants Proposal Manager will be in contact to begin sponsorship efforts, and an organizer manual is published online. A Conference Manager will be assigned in spring 2020, who works closely with organizers on all planning and logistics.
