More than 13,000 biological and biomedical scientists will gather for the Experimental Biology 2009 meeting at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, April 18 -April 22.
Experimental Biology's mission is to share the newest scientific concepts and research findings shaping future and current clinical advances and to give scientists and clinicians an unparalleled opportunity to hear from colleagues working on similar biomedical problems using different disciplines.
With six sponsoring societies and another 20 U.S. and international guest societies, the annual meeting brings together scientists from throughout the United States and the world, representing dozens of scientific areas, from laboratory to translational to clinical research. The meeting also offers a wide spectrum of professional development sessions.
Sponsoring societies for Experimental Biology 2009 are: American Association of Anatomists (AAA), 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 2009 includes the annual meetings of these six societies.
The presence of 20 participating societies further broadens the scope of the meeting, adding additional expertise in such areas as vascular biology, biomedical engineering, behavioral pharmacology, veterinary pathology, matrix biology, biological and environmental repositories, cardiovascular and pulmonary pathology, and nutrition, physical activity and metabolism.
The five-day meeting includes thousands of lectures, symposia, research presentations and exhibits. The diversity of topics can be seen in this sampling from the programs of sponsoring societies and their guest societies:
