About the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES)

The Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences was established in 1959 by eleven scientists at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to facilitate a collegial environment and provide educational and professional services for the scientific community. Over the last five decades, FAES has grown to be much more to the NIH community serving not only the Bethesda Campus, but also Frederick, Rockledge, and Baltimore, Maryland as well as NIH sites in Arizona, North Carolina, and Montana. In addition to the pursuit of educational initiatives, the FAES provides additional support services for the NIH student population to include; a scientific bookstore, conference and cultural events, health insurance programs, lectures and special events, and limited housing. In 1984, the organization expanded its services and started offering a series of short-term biotechnology lecture and laboratory “hands-on” training courses through biotechnology training program. Today, FAES offers 150 courses each year and over 60 core biotechnology training workshops, and runs a series of management and leadership training classes for scientists who want to bridge the gap between the bench/bedside and business or other disciplines. Since its founding, FAES has educated over 40,000 scientists and continues to expand and customize educational opportunities for the community. For more information, please visit faes.org.
