Media invited: Biophysical Society Annual Meeting
Date:1/18/2013

Honeybee silk-inspired materials; a deconstruction of the Ebola virus; how microbes evolve resistance to antibiotics; and a possible connection between Alzheimer's disease and type II diabetes are just some of the intriguing topics that will be presented at the 57th Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society (BPS).

The conference will take place Feb. 2 - 6, 2013, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pa. With more than 6,000 research scientists in attendance each year, the Annual Meeting is the largest meeting of biophysicists in the world.

Credentialed journalists, freelance reporters working on assignment, and public information officers may attend the meeting free of charge. For more information on press registration, see below.

Preliminary Highlights

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 3

Honeybee Silk: Silkworms and spiders get most of the attention, but honeybees also make silk. Researchers are using what they have learned about bee silk to design recombinant materials with a wide range of properties and potential applications.

Chemical Pathways of Psychosis: A broad spectrum of symptoms has been seen in psychotic disorders, but nearly 70 years of research has produced anti-psychotic drugs that alleviate only some of these symptoms and can cause significant side effects. Recent work that illuminates the complex chemical interrelationships among certain receptors in the brain could lead to better management of psychotic disorders.
