The six sponsoring societies for Experimental Biology 2003 are: American Association of Anatomists, The American Physiological Society, American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, American Society for Investigative Pathology, American Society for Nutritional Sciences, and American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics. Eleven guest societies from across the world, including the Association of Latin American Physiological Societies, the Biomedical Engineering Society and the Society for International Nutrition Research, represent an even broader range of interests and collaboration.
Once again, Experimental Biology 2003 returns to the theme "Translating the Genome" -- referring to the rapidly expanding ability of scientists to translate the map of all human genes into new approaches to understanding, treating and preventing diseases. Whatever their field, whether basic scientists working in the lab or clinical researchers working with patients, scientists come to Experimental Biology because of shared interests in genetic and other processes underlying human development, health and disease. They also come for the unparalleled opportunity to step outside the boundaries of their own fields and share information with scientists armed with the viewpoint and tools of entirely different disciplines.
For five days, scientists -- and reporters covering the meeting -- can choose among thousands of scientific presentations in poster sessions, lectures and symposia. The diversity of topics can be seen in this small sampling:
