The American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) is a society of biomedical scientists who investigate mechanisms of disease. Investigative pathology is an integrative discipline that links the presentation of disease in the whole organism to its fundamental cellular and molecular mechanisms. It uses a variety of structural, functional, and genetic techniques and ultimately applies research findings to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. ASIP advocates for the practice of investigative pathology and fosters the professional career development and education of its members.
ASIP welcomes basic and clinical biomedical research scientists as active members. ASIP Membership includes scientists from 35 countries.
ASIP is a member of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), a coalition of 26 independent societies representing 100,000 scientists. FASEB plays an active role in lobbying for the interests of biomedical scientists.
Scientific Interest Groups
Scientific Interest Groups represent the diverse research interests of the ASIP membership. These subsections are responsive to the needs and specialty interests of their respective ASIP constituents by providing assistance in program development at the annual meeting and networking opportunities for young investigative pathologists. At present, subsections include the following areas:
