ASCB has a strong reputation as a leader in life science policy and as a “go-to” group for state, national, and international policymakers in need of critical information or advice on life science policy issues.
White Papers and Position Papers
One way ASCB educates government officials is through publication of Position Papers outlining ASCB’s position on critical science-related issues. ASCB Public Policy Committee Taskforces also produce White papers on specific topics of interest to the cell biology community.
ASCB Letters and Official Policy Comments
The ASCB also sends official letters in response to official requests for comment from agencies like the NIH and the NSF and to policymakers in Congress and federal agencies.
