Who We Are

The American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET) is a 4,000 member scientific society whose members conduct basic and clinical pharmacological research and work for academia, government, large pharmaceutical companies, small biotech companies, and non-profit organizations.

ASPET members work in a variety of different fields and include neuroscientists, toxicologists, chemical biologists, pharmacists, cardiovascular scientists, and many more.

Though very diverse, our members have a common bond through their membership in ASPET. Our members' research efforts help develop new medicines and therapeutic agents to fight existing and emerging diseases.

ASPET is governed by an elected council consisting of a president, past president, president-elect, secretary/treasurer, past secretary/treasurer, secretary/treasurer-elect, and three councilors. The chair of the Board of Publications Trustees, the chair of the Program Committee, the ASPET representative to the FASEB Board and the executive officer serve as non-voting ex officio members of the council.

ASPET supports ten divisions, each of which is governed by an executive committee.


ASPET is located in Rockville, Maryland. Formerly ASPET was located on the campus of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, of which ASPET is a founding member.
