More than 14,000 biomedical researchers will gather in New Orleans April 20-24 for Experimental Biology 2002. Now in its eleventh year, the annual meeting brings together scientists from dozens of scientific disciplines and countries to present the newest scientific concepts and discoveries expected to shape future medical advances.
Whatever their fields of study, whether basic science or clinical research, scientists come to Experimental Biology meetings because of a shared interest in the processes underlying human development, function, aging, and the way diseases develop and can be treated or prevented. The size, scope and organization of the meeting give these scientists an unparalleled opportunity to step outside the boundaries of their own fields. They share information with scientists armed with the viewpoint and tools of entirely different disciplines.
The seven sponsoring societies for Experimental Biology 2002 are: The American Physiological Society, American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, American Society for Investigative Pathology, American Society for Nutritional Sciences, The American Association of Immunologists and American Association of Anatomists. Twenty-four guest societies from across the world, from the American Association of Veterinary Anatomists to the Spanish Physiological Society, represent an even broader range of interests and collaboration.
The theme for Experimental Biology 2002 is Translating the Genome. Recent advances in decoding the human genome, the complete set of genes in the human body, have given scientists in all fields a new tool in understanding how human beings function and develop or respond to disease. Experimental Biology 2002 gives them a chance to share their findings and perspectives.
For five days, scientists can choose among thousands of scientific presentations i
