|The AES Electrophoresis Society was formed in 1979 to improve technologies and promote knowledge of biomolecular separation and detection. Much of the focus is within techniques associated with electrophoresis which are numerous and include isoelectric focusing, 2-D, SDS PAGE, capillary, free-flow, dielectrophoresis, and classical gel systems. Members include diverse academic, industrial, and government researchers involved in many aspects of electrokinetics or microfluidics. The society's quarterly newsletter presenting new application foci from the leaders in their field, news for members and access to technical online forums is available to members. AES supports scientists and engineers in many fields as well as student members with many opportunities for strong interactions. These include programing, workshops, plenary sessions, and social events at SciX (presented by FACSS), microTAS and American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). Executive and board meetings are held annually at AIChE.
