The American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET) is an international scientific society founded in late 1908 by John Jacob Abel of Johns Hopkins University (also the founder of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology), with the aim of promoting the growth of pharmacological research.[2][3] Many society members are researchers in basic and clinical pharmacology who help develop disease-fighting medications and therapeutics.[4] ASPET is one of the constituent societies of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB).[5] The society's headquarters are in Bethesda, Maryland on the FASEB campus. The current president is Richard R. Neubig.[6]

Publications[edit]

The society publishes three research journals and a review journal:

Starting in 2012 these subscriptions are only offered online only.
