FASEB’s role is to efficiently manage the reimbursement process for the FASEB SRCs. The amount available for expense reimbursement is unknown prior to the start of the conference. FASEB will only reimburse lodging costs up to the cost of the conference hotel (group rate) for the number of nights scheduled for the meeting.

  • Register for the conference at least two months before the meeting.
  • Check-in at the registration desk on-site for the event.

  • Present your talk (speakers) or conduct your sessions as scheduled (session chairs).

Reimbursement Process

FASEB staff will reach out to you approximately one month prior to the start of your meeting with instructions on how to apply for reimbursement. Please notify FASEB if your email address or reimbursement address changes from the time that you register for the conference.
