American Society for Cell Biology

The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) is an inclusive, international community of biologists studying the cell, the fundamental unit of life. We are dedicated to advancing scientific discovery, advocating sound research policies, improving education, promoting professional development, and increasing diversity in the scientific workforce.

ASCB publishes two journals:

Molecular Biology of the Cell (MBoC) is a premier journal for research in all areas of cell biology, from biophysics to genetics to neuroscience. Its 27 online issues per year include Special Issues in the important areas of Quantitative Cell Biology, Forces on and within Cells, and the Cell Biology of Stem Cells.

CBE—Life Sciences Education (LSE) is a peer-reviewed journal of life science education research and evidence-based practice published by the ASCB in editorial partnership with the Genetics Society of America and partially funded by Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Online and completely free, LSE emphasizes teaching innovations and evidence of their effectiveness and is designed for educators at all levels and across all life science disciplines.
