||The Algerian American Scientists Association (AASA) is an independent, non-profit and non-political organization established in December 2007 in New York, NY. AASA?s vision is to build a network of Algerian-American Scientists and health care specialists in the U.S. in order to promote the advancement and growth of young professionals. This network will facilitate the flow of people (scientists and students), knowledge and technology; and help link academic institutions in the two countries. Moreover, AASA?s goal is to participate in health awareness and care in joint partnership with Algerian institutions. AASA?s axiom is to achieve its objectives with a series of concrete, measurable, realistic and result oriented actions in a timely manner. We appreciate the contributions of countless individuals who spent their valuable time and efforts in bringing AASA to where it is today. AASA's missions: 1. Promote and foster a network of Algerian students and professionals in science and health care in the U.S. 2. Enhance scientific exchanges, educational programs and networking by building bridges between research groups in Algeria and USA. 3. Participate in the advancement of health awareness and care in Algeria through cooperation between the United States of America and Algeria.
