Experimental Biology 2002, Translating the Genome

n poster sessions, lectures and symposia. The diversity of topics can be seen in a small sampling of topics being covered at the meeting:

The American Physiological Society will use the meetings human genome theme to discuss the neurobiology of obesity, including gene-environment interactions and the promise for therapeutic intervention in obesity. Other symposia include cell death and organ injury mechanisms in hypertension; genetic adaptation to cold; and the ability of estrogen to protect against brain and nervous system disorders such as Alzheimers disease.

The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology begins Experimental Biology 2002 with satellite meetings on April 19-20, focusing on such topics as scientific and technical challenges in the Human Proteome. (The proteome is a map of all the proteins encoded by genes, and is considered the logical next step now that science has made so much progress on mapping the genes themselves.) Symposia topics include cellular control, gene regulation and proteomics (analysis of the cells proteins, the products of gene expression that serve as lifes basic building blocks and carry out all bodily functions) and drug discovery.

The American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics offers hundreds of sessions on the latest advances in therapeutics, including how pharmacology meets the human genome; pharmacogenetics and epidemiology, advances in understanding transport of drugs and toxic substances, treatment of pain, and how drugs or toxic substances particularly effect people with diabetes.

The American Society for Investigative Pathology has symposia on cancer research in the post-genomic era; genomic and proteomic approaches to cancer detection and molecular therapy; atherosclerosis; new understandings of how pathogens like viruses and bacteria work and how these also could be used in therapy; mechanisms of how alcohol abuse causes and/or enhances injury in liv
