The theme of this year's meeting, "Advancing the Biomedical Frontier," refers to Experimental Biology's reputation for presenting research results that are shaping today's and tomorrow's medical advances.
The six sponsoring societies for Experimental Biology 2006 are: American Association of Anatomists; the American Physiological Society; American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; American Society for Investigative Pathology; American Society for Nutrition, Inc.; and American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics. Fourteen guest societies further broaden the scope of the meeting, adding expertise in veterinary pathology, behavioral pharmacology, biomedical engineering, biological and environmental repositories, and other areas of investigation.
Experimental Biology includes the annual meetings of all sponsoring societies. In addition, the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), the scientific organization most specifically focused on the chemistry of life, and the Journal of Biological Chemistry, both will be celebrating their 100th anniversaries with ASBMB's usual strong scientific program plus a birthday bash, a 5K fun run; and an evening with the San Francisco Symphony, all ticketed events open to all Experimental Biology participants.
