Experimental Biology 2004 will bring together more than 12,000 independent scientists, representing 32 different biological and biomedical societies from the United States and other nations. Now in its 14th year, Experimental Biology has become one of the world's largest and most significant interdisciplinary scientific meetings. Under the theme "Translating the Genome," this year's meeting offers thousands of individual presentations of new research, symposia on timely topics, lectures by internationally prominent distinguished scientists, and sessions on new technology and other topics of interest to practicing scientists and those who cover science. Reporters covering Experimental Biology 2004 have an opportunity to hear first-hand the research findings upon which scientific advances are made and to see interdisciplinary science and debate in action.
When: Saturday, April 17 Wednesday, April 21
Where: Washington, D.C. Convention Center
Who: Sponsoring scientific societies are the 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. Another 26 participating societies are also represented.
Why this meeting is important to science: Whatever their field of study, scientists participating in Experimental Biology 2004 share an interest in the processes underlying human development, function, and aging, and the way diseases develop and can be treated or prevented. The interdisciplinary nature of the meeting provides scientists the opportunity to explore how their work whether in anatomy, pathology, physiology, nutrition, pharmacology, immunology, or other fields relates to research in other disciplines.
