Membership fee 
There is a $100 membership fee for all chapters. This membership fee covers the registration of the first 10 students to join the chapter. Additional student members may join the chapter throughout the year and pay a $10 registration fee.

Chapter requirements 

  • All chapters must be sponsored by a faculty adviser who is a regular active member of the ASBMB. This adviser will be the primary contact for the chapter's activities.
  • A minimum of 5 students are required to receive full chapter member benefits.  

Individual student members interested in Student Chapters: 
If an individual ASBMB student member is at an institution that does not have a faculty adviser or a chapter, please contact for assistance in starting a new chapter.
