WASHINGTON (April 8, 2011) The meeting Experimental Biology 2011 (EB 2011) begins April 9 and runs through April 13 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. This year's meeting is expected to attract some 13,000 scientists and exhibitors. The annual gathering is jointly sponsored by the American Association of Anatomists (AAA), 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). The full program is located online.
Select highlights of the conference, and the dates and times of the presentations, are noted below.

What's Next in the Biochemical Battle of the Bulge?
Dozens of researchers in the coming days will lay out what's around the corner in the biochemical battle of the bulge in a three-day program about obesity sponsored by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The program will showcase the work of scientists from all over the world who have their sights set on reversing the epidemic by laying bare and manipulating, to mankind's advantage, its molecular underpinnings. Nine 25-minute talks and numerous other shorter talks about groundbreaking obesity studies will launch Sunday in Room 202B of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. 9:55 a.m. (ASBMB)
Hot Topics in Chemical Biology and Drug Development
What do blinking fireflies, the cellular power plants that are human mitochondria, parasitic worms in sub-Saharan Africa and synthetic sugars have in common? At first glance, not a lot; but, after a good hard look, they represent bright threads in the tapestry of knowledge for those trying to patch the gaps between chemical biology, technology, therapies and cures. In the coming days, two dozen researchers wi
