And more. Participating societies also offer numerous sessions, open to all meeting participants, related to career development, challenges and opportunities for minority and women scientists, networking, how to become a better teacher or communicator and how to improve the chance of publishing (one such presentation is named "dancing with journals") and applying for and winning research funding.
Experimental Biology itself has arranged a number of sessions on topics of interest, including "NIH at the Crossroads: How Diminished Funds Will Impact Biomedical Research and What Scientists Can Do About It," a presentation by NIH Director Elias Zerhouni and The Honorable John Porter, former Chair of the U.S. House of Representatives Labor/HHS Appropriations Subcommittee. This year's EB and FASEB (Federation of the American Societies of Experimental Biology) MARC (Minority Access to Research Careers) Genomics Symposium and Poster session, moderated by Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, NIH, focuses on the genetic and therapeutic implications of health disparities in HIV and AIDS.
Exhibits of the latest research-related technologies, products and services will be open Sunday and Monday, April 29 and 30, from 9 AM to 4 PM and Tuesday, May 1, from 9 AM to 3:30 PM.
Once again, the FASEB Career Resources will hold a virtual career fair and a "Career Connection" reception for employers and those seeking positions.
