APS Comparative-Evolutionary Physiology Conference showcases relevance of animal diversity

BETHESDA, MD The American Physiological Society's fourth quadrennial intersociety conference, "Comparative Physiology 2006: Integrating Diversity," takes place October 8-11 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Featuring 20 major symposia, five plenary lectures and two two-day poster sessions, "this fourth comprehensive APS meeting is recognized as the best regularly scheduled international meeting covering comparative and evolutionary physiology," David L. Goldstein, chair and professor of biological sciences, Wright State University in Ohio, said.

The meeting's two big themes, Goldstein said, "are looking at the evolution of the myriad specific wonderful ways that animals work, and then drawing out those general principles that may apply to humans and biomedicine." The impact of modern physiological approaches including genomics and proteomics will be discussed in various contexts.

The packed four days present an incredibly broad range of topics, animals and physiological approaches. The symposia include: "Muscles as springs: Molecules to movement"; "Fuel selection during exercise: Mechanisms, ecological and evolutionary implications"; "Bio-medical applications of suspended animation (hibernation)"; "Comparative nutritional physiology/ecology"; "Comparative biology of aging in long-lived animals" + 15 more.
