Selected highlights of the research being presented at the Experimental Biology 2010 meeting

The six sponsoring societies for the meeting Experimental Biology 2010 the American Association of Anatomists, The American Physiological Society, American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, American Society for Investigative Pathology, American Society for Nutrition, and American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics are pleased to preview some of the science being presented April 24-28, at the Anaheim Convention Center. The following six summaries highlight the broad scope of scientific research that will be covered at the meeting, which attracts more than 10,000 biological and biomedical scientists. The full program is located at:

Regenerative Pharmacology and the Applications of Stem Cell Therapies for Tissue and Organ Repair (ASPET)

Impressive achievements in understanding stem cell cultivation, differentiation, control mechanisms and modeling have been made over the past several years. Stem cells are now at the point of having present-day applications and important implications for the future of developmental and regenerative pharmacology, and, ultimately, world health. This American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics symposium will provide a state-of-the-art look at what we currently know about stem cells and the pharmacological control and differentiation of their behavior in both in vitro and in vivo models, and how the translation of stem cell research will move to bedside applications. Speakers will address topics ranging from the pharmacological control of stem cells and how stem cell-based therapies can treat cardiac disease to what industry is doing to create and launch stem cell-based therapies into the clinic. (Sun., 4/25)

Breastfeeding and Infant Growth (ASN)

While the benefits of breastfeeding through age 6 months continue to be documented, the issue of responsive feeding is complicated by psychological and anthropological concepts that require multidisciplinary investigation. The American Society for Nutrition will present a symposium on responsive feeding and how to promote healthy growth and development for infants and toddlers. A breakdown of breastfeeding styles among various socioeconomic levels will be presented, with data from low, middle- and high-income countries. Learn more about the implications for policy and program implementation. (Sun., 4/25)

Evolving from Reductionism to Holism: The Future is Systems Medicine (APS)

One of the many symposia presented by the American Physiological Society will be one focusing on the emerging field of personalized, "systems" medicine. With the sequencing of the human genome and availability of high power computational methods and various high through-put technologies, biomedical sciences and medicine will be undergoing revolutionary change. The new technologies and approaches have already spawned the field of systems biology; the new field of systems medicine is the integration and application of biologic and informational sciences, allowing a complex approach to biomedical problems. In medicine, complex computational tools will become essential for deriving personalized assessments of disease risk and management including individualized diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment options. This change, involving the use and analysis of enormous quantities and variety of data, will require new types of physicians and researchers - ones with a grasp of modern computational sciences, "-omic" technologies (genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, etc.), and a systems approach to medicine. (Sun., 4/25)

Hypertension: Treatment, Disparities and Molecular Mechanisms (ASBMB)

Hypertension affects some 60 million Americans and more than 1 billion individuals worldwide, and is a significant risk factor for cardiac disease and stroke. According to recent statistics, disease attributable to hypertension is the number one cause of mortality in the world, yet, despite this tremendous impact on public health, our understanding of this disease is not yet fully clear. This American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology-sponsored symposium will discuss our current knowledge regarding several facets of hypertension, such as the molecular role played by ion channels involved in salt balance, some contemporary approaches in treating various degrees of hypertension, and the racial disparities in the risks of hypertensive cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney disease. (Mon.-Wed., 4/26-28)

Ancient Mummies Teach Modern Doctors (AAA)

Anatomy comes to life during a 2-day mini meeting sponsored by the American Association of Anatomists. Among the topics to be discussed are: how historic mummified remains help us all to learn more about our common past, present and future. How did people live and die in earlier times? How does the environment influence the preservation of human bodies after death? What do medical doctors learn today when x-raying ancient mummies? These and other intriguing questions can be solved by applying state-of-the-art radiological techniques such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging or other advanced high-resolution imaging technologies. Through medical diagnostic imaging - without harming these precious tissues at all - these patients of the past reveal to us fascinating stories on their calcified vessels, deadly crime injuries and the evolution of disease in general. (Tues., 4/27)

Air Pollution Can Affect Your Heart (ASIP)

The American Society for Investigative Pathology will sponsor a poster presentation that addresses the long-term impact of myocardial inflammation in places with high levels of air pollution. The presentation is part of a growing body of research showing that air pollution can damage the heart and lead to increased risk of heart disease and heart attacks. Learn more about how the heart begins to show the adverse effects of air pollution at a young age and how tiny bits of inactivated bacteria that hitch a ride on pollutants may make the problem worse. (Wed., 4/28)
