Scientific societes for biologists.

AAAS American Association for the Advancement of Science. The American Association for the Advancement of Science ... is a nonprofit professional society dedicated to the advancement of scientific and technological excellence across all disciplines, and to the public's understanding of science and technology. AAAS is among the oldest societies in America, having been founded in Philadelphia in 1848.

ACS The American Chemical Society. The ACS is a self governed individual membership organization that consists of nearly 159,000 membersó60% from industry, at all degree levels. This provides ample opportunity for peer interaction, regardless of your professional or scientific interests. There are 34 ACS divisions, representing a wide range of disciplines for chemists, chemical engineers and technicians.

ASM The American Society for Microbiology. The American Society for Microbiology is the oldest and largest single life science  membership organization in the world. Membership has grown from 59 scientists in 1899 to over 42,000 members today located throughout the world. ASM represents 25 disciplines of microbiological specialization plus a division for microbiology educators.

ASCB The American Society for Cell Biology. The Society's purpose is to promote and develop the field of cell biology. The ASCB strives to ensure the future of basic scientific research by providing training and development opportunities for students and young investigators, and also by keeping Congress and the American public informed about the importance of biomedical research. Since its founding, the ASCB has grown to more than 11,000 members. Members are located throughout the United States and in 50 other countries.

SFN The Society for Neuroscience is a nonprofit membership organization of basic scientists and physicians who study the brain and nervous system.
Biophysical Society The Biophysical Society was founded in 1957 to encourage development and dissemination of knowledge in biophysics. Biophysics applies the techniques and theories of the physics (thermondynamics, mechanics, spectroscopy etc.) to the study of biological objects.
FEBS  Federation of European Biochemical Societies. Founded on 1st January 1964, it is a Federation of the Societies of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 33 countries in the European area.
ISSS The International Society for the Systems Science studies processes that go across disciplinary lines in its search for systems methods and systems analogies. Each analogy is based on formal, verifiable similarities simultaneously valid for the many unique systems despite their widely differing scales of magnitude and complexity.
