Nation's largest federation of biological and biomedical organizations welcomes 2 new members
Date:12/8/2011

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) is pleased to announce the addition of two new member societies, the Society for Glycobiology and the Society for Pediatric Research, which will bring the Federation membership to 26 societies in 2012. "These are very dynamic groups representing extremely important areas of research, and we are proud to have them as members," said FASEB President Joseph C. LaManna, PhD. "We welcome the addition of their energy and perspectives to our advocacy efforts and look forward to working closely for and with them in the years ahead."

The Society for Glycobiology (SFG), which was known as the Society for Complex Carbohydrates from 1973 through 1993, is a scholarly society devoted to the study of glycan (sugar chain) structures and functions and sharing that knowledge with scientists worldwide. "Our society is excited to join FASEB in its centennial year," said SFG President-elect Hudson Freeze, PhD. "Now is the critical time to secure broad based support for scientific research, and our members will add to the efforts being undertaken. In addition, our team of consultants will provide expertise to members of other FASEB societies who may be unfamiliar with glycobiology."

The Society for Pediatric Research (SPR) fosters the work and career development of young investigators engaged in research that benefits children. Through its participation in the Pediatric Academic Societies annual meeting, the society provides a forum for the interchange of ideas and an opportunity for young investigators to present their work. SPR President Susan Furth, MD, PhD noted that, "By joining FASEB in its efforts to promote research, SPR members hope to enhance the visibility and impact of pediatric research by increasing opportunities for researchers to pursue new knowledge that will promote child health."
