Experimental Biology 2002, Translating the Genome

er, muscles, lung and other tissues.

The American Society for Nutritional Sciences offers sessions on specific foods (nuts in a healthful diet for example) and vitamins, minerals, sugars, fats and other nutrients and micronutrients. It also focuses on topics such as fetal origins of adult disease; human milk and lactation, maternal and infant nutrition; aging and chronic disease; diet and cancer; bioactive compounds in food; and the challenges of feeding the world in the coming decades.

The American Association of Immunologists has topics related to the genome, such as genetic manipulation of the immune system and genetics and genomics of automimune disease. The society also looks at other contemporary topics in immunology, including immunologic memory (the underlying principle of vaccines, for example), immune defects in HIV disease, immunotherapy of cancer, and immune tolerance (an important issue in organ transplantation, for example).

The American Association of Anatomists offers topics including angiogenesis (the growth of blood vessels, and of interest in cancer as well as heart research), the therapeutic potential of different types of stem cells in spinal cord injury, how sex hormones affect the developing brain, the effect on gastrointestinal disease of the enteric nervous system (the nervous system that drives the GI system) and its effect on gut diseases, and mechanisms of craniofacial bone growth.

In other Experimental Biology 2002 events, a new public policy symposium will bring national leaders to discuss science policy implications of bioterrorism from governmental, public health and scientific perspectives. Many of the societies sponsor sessions that focus on challenges and opportunities for women scientists or scientists who are minorities, including a multi-society symposium on using genomics to help solve problems related to diseases that disproportionately affect minority population
