Updates from FASEB
NEW SRR Resources
Shared Research Resources (SRRs) enable efficient and widespread access to state-of-the-art technologies and scientific expertise that have accelerated research for over 40 years. Building on the report from 2017, FASEB's SRR Task Force has identified five key areas that are fundamental to the recognition and sustainability of SRRs in this new report.

Assisting Society Members with Op-Eds and Other Opinion Pieces
Letters-to-the-editor, commentaries, and op-eds can inform the public about the importance of science and scientific issues in everyday life and counteract the spread (intentional and unintentional) of inaccurate or misleading coverage of scientific information in traditional press outlets and social media. Do you want to write an opinion piece but don’t know where to start? Start here. FASEB staff is available to assist anyone who is interested in writing an opinion piece and can provide editorial review or discuss strategy for placement. Email Jennifer Zeitzer, FASEB’s Director of Public Affairs, for more information.
Supporting Members' Animal Research
Do your need assistance reinforcing the importance of animal research? The factsheet, “Biomedical Research Breakthroughs: 2010-2019,” highlights the contributions of animal research to biomedical and pharmaceutical innovations during the past decade. Designed for the general public, the factsheet emphasizes how the majority of these groundbreaking health care discoveries began with basic research in animal models and provides insights into the time- and resource-intensive process of shepherding discoveries to clinical application.
Since 2016, US HUPO has participated as a member society of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB). FASEB is a vocal proponent for funding of scientific research and a frequent contributor to Federal Requests for Information regarding important policy issues affecting biological research. Through FASEB membership, US HUPO has a voice in FASEB policy recommendations and representation in FASEB legislative initiatives and activities. Membership also gives US HUPO members exposure to an array of fellow scientific member societies, thus broadening awareness of proteomics and US HUPO. FASEB membership also conveys a number of individual benefits that are available to US HUPO members. Read more about FASEB society member benefits.
US HUPO is represented at FASEB’s monthly Board of Director’s conference calls and occasional face-to-face meetings by US HUPO Board member Rebekah Gundry, PhD, FAHA, University of Nebraska Medical Center.
FASEB's Science Policy Committee is one of its most compelling and active committees. US HUPO is represented by US HUPO Board member Karin Rodland, PhD, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory on this important committee.
