More than 16,000 biological and biomedical scientists will gather for the Experimental Biology 2005 meeting in San Diego, Saturday, April 2, through Wednesday, April 6. The annual meeting, now in its 14th year, is world renowned for its emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches to scientific and medical problems. It is designed to bring together scientists from dozens of different disciplines, from laboratory to translational to clinical research, from throughout the United States and across the world. In literally thousands of presentations, symposia, workshops, and poster sessions, they share information across the boundaries of their own fields and present the newest scientific concepts and discoveries shaping medical advances for today and the future.
The 2005 meeting will have the most scientists and presentations - and will be the most international in scope - since the sponsoring societies first began holding their meetings at the same time in recognition of the interdisciplinary approaches underlying so many of today's scientific and medical advances.
In large part, the expansion is due to the decision of the International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS) to hold its 35th Congress - a meeting held every five years - in conjunction with Experimental Biology meeting. Throughout the 20th century, the IUPS Congress has served as an international forum to disseminate new knowledge and forge and renew relationships among physiologists from distant lands. The IUPS meeting begins Thursday, March 31, and ends Tuesday, April 5. In addition, a number of IUPS satellite symposia will be held within a 150-mile radius of San Diego immediately before or after the larger meeting.
IUPS's theme this year, "From Genomes to Functions," fits well with Experimental Biology's focus, during recent years, on how advances in genetics, especially the translation of the human genome, can lead to better understanding of healthy states as well as wPage: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Related biology news :1
