What: More than 12,000 biological and biomedical scientists will gather for Experimental Biology 2008. This annual meeting, now in its 17th year, brings together scientists from dozens of different disciplines, from laboratory to translational to clinical research, from throughout the United States and the world. The theme of Experimental Biology 2008 is Todays Research: Tomorrows Health. Thousands of lectures, symposia, research presentations, and exhibits present the newest scientific concepts and research findings shaping current and future clinical advances. The meeting also presents numerous educational sessions for students and career development programs aimed specifically at women and minorities.
When: Saturday, April 5 - Wednesday, April 9
Where: San Diego Convention Center
Who: Sponsoring societies of Experimental Biology 2008 are: American Association of Anatomists; The American Association of Immunologists; The American Physiological Society; American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; American Society for Investigative Pathology; American Society for Nutrition, Inc.; and American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics. Experimental Biology includes these societies annual meetings. Forty U.S. and international guest societies further broaden the scope of the meeting.
Why: For both reporters and scientists, Experimental Biology offers an unparalleled opportunity to see medical advances being made. With its unique breadth of scientific disciplines and mix of laboratory scientists and active clinicians, the meeting also provides insight into how good science works. Many thousands of scientific presentations are available by abstract before the meeting and in fast-breaking announcements made during the meeting itself. All scientific sessions are open to all registered attendees and to members of the press, allowing scientists and journalists to learn from colleagues tackling similar medical problems and other questions from the viewpoint of entirely different disciplines. Also open to all registered attendees and members of the press: an exhibit hall filled with the latest scientific equipment, supplies and publications.
How: Experimental Biology 2008 is open to media representing print, electronic, online, general interest, trade and medical publishing companies. To register as press, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Before the meeting, registrants will receive press materials via email. A pressroom will be available at the meeting, with daily media briefings by scientists presenting at the meeting.
