The American Institute of Biological Sciences was formed with a vision of bringing together the organizations and individuals that advance the biological sciences to work together on matters best addressed through united action.
Founded in 1947 as a part of the National Academy of Sciences, AIBS became an independent, member-governed nonprofit organization in the 1950s.
In late 2009, AIBS initiated a process to consider its role at the start of the 21st century and how to adapt its programs to the rapid social, technological, and economic changes that are influencing the practice of the life sciences.
