Membership in the American Society for Cell Biology is open to research scientists, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, undergraduate students, and educators. Members come from universities, colleges, professional schools, government, industry, and public and private research institutions. ASCB also offers corporate membership to companies that support the purposes of the Society. All ASCB memberships are on a calendar year, from January to December.

  • If you are planning to register for the ASCB|EMBO meeting or submit an abstract on the same day you pay membership dues, you MUST process the membership and abstract submission fee or the membership and meeting registration fee in the same shopping cart in order to receive the member rate.
  • DO NOT pay the membership dues separately or you will not receive the member discount rate
