The six sponsoring societies for Experimental Biology 2004 are: American Association of Anatomists, The American Association of Immunologists, The American Physiological Society, American Society for Investigative Pathology, American Society for Nutritional Sciences, and American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics. Further broadening the scope of the meeting are 26 guest societies the highest number of guest participants in Experimental Biology's 13 year history which add to the meeting these societies' special interests such as veterinary immunology, clinical nutrition, transplantation, tropical medicine, behavioral pharmacology, biomedical engineering, vascular biology, psychoneuroimmunology, and natural immunity, to name a few.
Experimental Biology 2004 continues to use "Translating the Genome" as the theme of its meeting. The theme refers to the extraordinary advances being made by scientists in these societies to translate the map of all human genes into new approaches to understanding, treating, and preventing diseases.
Translation also is a metaphor for the meeting itself. Recognized worldwide for its interdisciplinary approach, the annual Experimental Biology is designed to make it easy for scientists to step outside the boundaries of their own fields and share information with scientists armed with the viewpoint and tools of entirely different disciplines. Basic scientists who spend their days in the laboratory and clinical researchers who work with patients are able to share information and insights into a specific disease p
