More than 13,000 biological and biomedical scientists will gather for the Experimental Biology 2008 meeting in San Diego April 5-9.
The theme of the annual meeting, now in its 18th year, is Todays Research: Tomorrows Health. Thousands of lectures, symposia, research presentations and exhibits have been selected because of their potential to shape future and current clinical advances. Scientists and clinicians from dozens of different disciplines, from laboratory to translational to clinical research, from throughout the U.S. and the world, come together at Experimental Biology to discuss the newest scientific concepts and share the latest research findings with colleagues looking at similar biomedical problems through the lens of different disciplines.
The seven sponsoring societies for Experimental Biology 2008 are: American Association of Anatomists (AAA), The American Association of Immunologists (AAI), The American Physiological Society (APS), American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP), American Society for Nutrition (ASN), and American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET). Experimental Biology includes the annual meetings of all sponsoring societies.
Forty U.S. and international guest societies further broaden the scope of the meeting, adding scientists from fields such as biomedical engineering, behavioral pharmacology, veterinary pathology and immunology, biological and environmental repositories, and informatics, and from organizations such as the American College of Sports Medicine, American Diabetes Association, and American Heart Association.
The diversity of topics can be seen in this small sampling from the programs of sponsoring societies and their guests (all open to registered media):
