The AES Electrophoresis Society, previously the American Electrophoresis Society or AES, is a unique organization founded in 1980 to improve and promote technologies for electrophoretic separation and detection. With time, this focus has expanded to include all electrokinetic and related techniques for the advancement of different fields. The expertise of our members stretches from electrophoresis to dielectrophoresis and micro/nanofluidics with application in healthcare diagnostics, forensics, and advanced manufacturing. The mission of the society is to promote excellence across diverse disciplines; facilitate communication between members worldwide; facilitate the training of scientists and students in electrokinetic technologies; and facilitate peers training peers across the globe. This mission is supported by hosting forums and conferences, recognizing the top talent in electrokinetics and supporting the development of the next generation of researchers and educators.
