Science Policy Committee (SPC)


Committee Purpose

FASEB focuses on policy issues important to and affecting biomedical researchers and their work. At FASEB, policy development begins with the working scientists representing FASEB member societies and reflects the views of a broad cross-section of the research community. Policies are discussed and responses developed by the FASEB Science Policy Committee, which includes representatives from each FASEB Member Society, and seven topical subcommittees (View a full description and list of subcommittees). All statements are subject to review and approval by the FASEB Board of Directors.
