The American Society for Photobiology (ASP) was formed in response to the growing interest and research in the effects of light on human health and the broader natural world. Formally established in 1972 under the leadership of Kendric C. Smith, the society was the outgrowth of a number of regional photobiology groups, the Photochemistry Photobiology Group of the Biophysical Society (1970-1978), and the Committee on Photobiology of the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences (1952-1981).
Since the inception of the ASP, its goals have been to promote research in photobiology, integrate different photobiology disciplines, disseminate knowledge of photobiology, and provide information on photobiological aspects of national and international issues.
The ASP is continually expanding to encompass new developments of modern science and technology, and is currently organized around five key scientific divisions:
Photochemistry, Photophysics and Phototechnology
Photosynthesis and Photoconversion
Environmental Photobiology and Ultraviolet Radiation Effects
