The American Society for Neurochemistry was founded August 5,1969 with the intent to promote neurochemistry and related neurosciences and to enhance neurochemical knowledge; to stimulate communication between investigators; to disseminate new research findings through meetings, seminars, publications, and related activities; and to advance the education and recruitment of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in neurochemistry. The ASN has approximately 1,200 members located in the USA, Canada, and Latin America, with a few affiliate members from elsewhere. The small size and intimate setting of annual ASN meetings makes it an exceptionally interactive and friendly venue. The meeting organization and approach to promoting scientific inquiry and dialogue is innovative as compared to traditional large scientific meetings. Become a member and learn more about the history of ASN, view the Bylaws that guide ASN, or read on to learn about the Mission, FCOI policy, and various committees, including diversity and inclusion committee of the organization. ASN aims to help all scientists and trainees realize their educational and professional goals in an organization free from harassment or discrimination based on gender, orientation, race, ethnicity, or religion.
