Coalitions

Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences (FABBS)

“FABBS is a coalition of scientific societies that share an interest in advancing the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior. We communicate the importance and contributions of basic and applied research in these areas to policy makers and the public.”

FABBS represents the interests of its scientific societies by:

  • Educating federal representatives and Congress about the importance of research in the
    sciences of mind, brain, and behavior
  • Advocating for legislation and policy that enhance training and research
  • Providing sources of expertise and knowledge to federal agencies, Congress, and the media
  • Encouraging the sound use of science in the creation of public policy
  • Fostering effective interaction between agencies and organizations that fund research and the
    community of scientists and scientific societies
  • Facilitating information exchange among constituent societies as well as other scientific organizations
