Membership Information

As outlined in the Constitution and Bylaws of the AES Electrophoresis Society, the objective of The Society is to be a nonprofit organization conducted for scientific and educational purposes, to advance and promulgate knowledge in all areas of the field of electrophoresis as used in both applied and research applications. It is organized exclusively for educational and scientific purposes.

The AES Electrophoresis Society is a unique international organization founded to improve and promote technologies necessary for biomolecular separation and detection. The techniques of electrophoresis are numerous and include isoelectric focusing, 2-D / IEF / SDS PAGE, capillary, free-flow, as well as classical gel systems.

The AES Electrophoresis Society is:

  1. dedicated to the development, refinement of electrophoretic and detection technologies.
  2. formed to promote excellence - good science and techniques, and
  3. designed to cross many disciplines;
  4. to facilitate collaboration and communication between members worldwide;
  5. to facilitate the training of scientists and students in electrophoresis and detection technologies; and
  6. to facilitate peers training peers.

The Society is interested in theoretical modeling of electrophoretic separations of various biomolecules, as well as, the direct application of those principles and their refinement.

Membership in the Society is open to qualified individuals who share the purposes of the Society as their common interest.

All Members are entitled to a reduced subscription rate for the journal "Expert Review of Proteomics".

Privacy Statement

Introduction

The Electrophoresis Society collects information in different ways from Visitors and Members who access to the various parts of our Services and the network of web sites accessible through our Service. We use this information primarily to provide customized services and, generally, do not share this information with third parties.

Registration

Members are asked to provide certain personal information when they sign-up for Membership including name, address, affiliation, e-mail address and telephone number. The personal information collected from Members during the registration process is used to manage the Membership database. This information is provided in part to other Members for personal scientific contacts for information exchange within the scope of the objectives of The Electrophoresis Society to promote advances in electrophoresis research only.

Responses to Email Inquiries

When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to The Electrophoresis Society, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. The Electrophoresis Society does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.

Voluntary Surveys

We may periodically conduct both business and individual Member surveys. We encourage our Members to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them.
