Dr. Shan Yan has been appointed to the Board of Directors for FASEB, where he will represent the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS). From their website: "Founded in 1912, FASEB began with a small group of dedicated scientists, from three independent organizations, who wanted to provide a forum for educational meetings, develop publications, and disseminate results of biological research. Now the nation’s largest biomedical coalition, comprising 28 scientific societies and more than 115,000 researchers worldwide, FASEB is the recognized collective policy voice of biological and biomedical researchers." As part of the board, Dr. Yan will continue to leverage FASEB’s long-standing relationships with federal agencies to ensure sustainable and predictable Congressional funding for scientific research. Dr. Yan also serves as EMGS Co-Chair of the Publication Policy Committee, Member of the EMGS News Committee, and Member of the Public Relations and Communications. In the department, Dr. Yan has leadership roles as co-leader of the Genome Integrity and Cancer Integrity focus group and, effective July 1st, Associate Chair for Research.
