Genetics Society of America to host Model Organisms to Human Biology Meeting, June 12-15, 2010
Date:5/18/2010

Bethesda, MD The Genetics Society of America (GSA) will host its biennial GENETICS 2010: Model Organisms to Human Biology Meeting, on June 12 to 15, 2010, in Boston, Mass., at the Sheraton Boston. The 2010 MOHB meeting will bring together investigators who study genetic disease models in organisms such as flies, yeast, fungi, mice and other non-human organisms, combined with researchers in human genetics. This meeting will feature discussions on how basic genetics research impacts the study of human diseases, including sessions on stem cells, cancer as a genetic disease, disease models, personal genomics, and more (see list below).

Representatives of the media are cordially invited to attend the scientific keynotes, plenary and poster sessions. Eligible media representatives (see media eligibility requirements below) will receive complimentary press registration. Members of the press may register for the MOHB meeting online at http://www.mohb.org/2010/pages/media.shtml. For hotel registration, please visit the meeting Web site at www.mohb.org.

The scientific sessions and events at the 2010 MOHB meeting will provide participants with the chance to personally meet and talk with top genetics researchers in both the model organism and human genetics fields. This is an opportunity that you won't want to miss!

Keynote Speakers:

  • Saturday, June 12, 2010: 2009 Nobel Laureate, Carol Greider, PhD (Johns Hopkins University) will speak about her work on telomeres and the enzymes that protect them.
  • Sunday, June 13, 2010: 2008 Lasker Award winner, Gary Ruvkun, PhD (Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital) will give a genetic dissection of how worms detect and detoxify chemicals and how this research can be applied in the study of human genetics.
  • Monday, June 14, 2010: Director of the National Institute of General
