American Society For Nutritional Sciences

With 3400 members, ASNS is the principal professional organization of nutrition research scientists in the United States. It is dedicated to improving the quality of life through the science of nutrition.

The Society fulfills its mission by

• fostering and enhancing research in animal and human nutrition;

• providing opportunities for sharing, disseminating, and archiving peer-reviewed nutrition research results (at its annual meeting and in its official publication, the Journal of Nutrition);

• fostering quality education and training in nutrition;

• upholding standards of ethical behavior in research, the protection of human research participants, and the care and treatment of research animals;

• providing opportunities for fellowship and support among nutritionists; and

• bringing scientific knowledge to bear on nutrition issues through communication and influence in the public domain.

The ASNS Secretariat and its staff, housed in Bethesda, Maryland, administer the affairs of the Society. The executive officer interacts with the elected officers of the Society to manage the business affairs of the Society and the Journal of Nutrition, to maintain a relationship with the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FA-SEB), to coordinate public affairs activities, and to provide support for the selection and scheduling of the scientific program at the annual meeting (Experimental Biology).
