The Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES), Inc., was founded in 1959 for the purpose of facilitating educational and professional programs in support of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) biomedical community. Website: We offer 100-200 courses annually through our 12 departments and lab training facility; Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Biology and Genetics, Biotechnology, Chemistry/Imaging/Physics, General Studies, Immunology and Microbiology, Epidemiology/Mathematics/Statistics, Languages, Medicine and Physiology, Pharmacology and Toxicology, Public Health, and Technology Transfer. Our most popular classes are in immunology, informatics, and statistics. Beginning this fall, FAES is now offering training programs designed to teach scientists exactly ‘how’ to manage people, develop teams, lead projects, and become effective leaders in the biotechnology industry. All training classes will be team-taught by management experts and biotechnology industry leaders and many of our seminars and conferences offer Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Education (CE) credits. In addition to the pursuit of educational initiatives, the FAES provides additional support services for the NIH community to include a scientific bookstore, conference and cultural events, health insurance and music programs, lectures, special events, and limited student housing.
