Three Nobel laureates to speak at 06 AACBNC Meeting

February 22, 2005 - The theme of the next annual meeting of the Association of Anatomy, Cell Biology and Neurobiology Chairpersons (AACBNC) will be "The Future of Interdisciplinary Research and Training: Breaking Down the Barriers." Dr. Steven R. Goodman, President of the AACBNC, organized the meeting that will be held on January 18th to 21st 2006.

Dr. Goodman stated, "My dream was to have three Nobel Laureates who worked in the physical and life sciences attend the meeting to discuss the future of interdisciplinary research and training. Sometimes dreams come true." Goodman has recruited Dr. Aaron J. Ciechanover (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 2004), Dr. Russell A. Hulse (Nobel Prize in Physics, 1993), and Dr. Alan G. MacDiarmid (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 2000) to participate in the 06 meeting.

"They won their Nobel Prize for discovering the ubiquitin-proteasome system, binary pulsars, and conducting polymers respectively. These are fundamental discoveries in cell biology, chemistry, and physics." said Goodman. Hulse, MacDiarmid, and Goodman all hold endowed chairs at the University of Texas at Dallas, while Ciechanover holds a chair at the Technion Israel Institute of Technology.

During the meeting, the Nobel Laureates will give lectures on their groundbreaking research and be participants in two round-table discussions. The first round-table discussion will be on the future of interdisciplinary research and training, and will be moderated by Goodman. The second round-table discussion will be the impact of interdisciplinary and inter-institutional research upon issues such as conflict of interest, scientific misconduct, intellectual property, and promotion and tenure. The second round-table discussion will be moderated by Susan H. Ehringhaus, J.D., General Counsel for the AAMC, who is an expert on conflict of interest. Additional participants will be Chris B. Pascal, J.D., who is the Director of the Office of Research Integrity at the U.S. Dep
