The ABE was formed in 2009 from the education interest group of the Association of Graduate and Medical Departments of Biochemistry. The ABE became an independent non-profit in 2016. The organization consists of over 140 members from schools of medicine, pharmacy and dentistry and meets biennially to discuss innovations in biochemistry teaching to health professions students and to share ideas about education scholarship. See our demographics for more information about the make up of the ABE.
The ABE is governed by a 13 member Board of Directors which meets monthly to conduct business and to plan the biennial meeting. The ABE has three standing committees for member service: Finance Committee, Membership Committee, and Professional Development Committee. The Professional Development Committee leadership oversees several working groups engaged in resource development and mentorship. See the Committee Descriptions link for more information. A Nominating Committee is formed before each ABE biennial conference to facilitate ABE Board member elections.
