"The ASBMB has always been a pioneer in issues of diversity and inclusion and recently, on issues of sexual harassment in STEM academic fields. I am immensely proud to be part of this community."
"I really appreciate that the ASBMB does more than offer support for traditional career paths. From science policy to outreach and science communication, members have the opportunity to learn from experienced staff using platforms that make these resources increasingly more accessible."
"Being a member of the ASBMB provides you with tremendous challenges, opportunities and resources to grow as a professional."
The ASBMB's three prestigious journals offer a platform for your research with the benefit of editorial feedback, fast turnaround and open access.
Journal of Biological Chemistry
JBC publishes high-quality science that seeks to elucidate the molecular and cellular basis of biological processes.
Molecular & Cellular Proteomics
MCP showcases cutting-edge advances in proteomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics.
Journal of Lipid Research
JLR is the most cited journal devoted to lipids in the world, focusing on the science of lipids in health and disease.
