The mission of the Society is to promote the discovery, advancement, and dissemination of basic and translational knowledge in experimental/investigative pathology and related disciplines. Experimental/investigative pathology is an integrative discipline that links the manifestations of disease in the whole organism to its fundamental cellular and molecular mechanisms. It uses a variety of structural, functional, and genetic techniques, and ultimately applies research findings to the characterization, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. The Society advocates for the practice of experimental/investigative pathology and fosters the professional career development and education of its members. The Society promotes equal representation and opportunity among investigators in experimental/investigative pathology research and related disciplines. These objectives shall be achieved by fostering investigation into the molecular and cellular pathogenesis, diagnosis and classification, pathophysiology, and prognosis of disease through meetings, scientific publications, educational activities, career development events, activities, and other research proceedings.
The American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) is a society of biomedical scientists who investigate mechanisms of disease. Investigative pathology is an integrative discipline that links the presentation of disease in the whole organism to its fundamental cellular and molecular mechanisms. It uses a variety of structural, functional, and genetic techniques and ultimately applies research findings to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. ASIP advocates for the practice of investigative pathology and fosters the professional career development and education of its members.
ASIP welcomes basic and clinical biomedical research scientists as active members.
ASIP is a member of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), a coalition of 26 independent societies that plays an active role in lobbying for the interests of 115,000 biomedical scientists.
