Bethesda, MD – The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): Tyrosine Kinase Signaling in Cancer, Disease, & Development.
This conference will take place in Snowmass, Colorado on July 22-27, 2012. Attendees will learn about the latest research on dissecting the signaling pathways regulated by soluble and membrane receptor tyrosine kinases. Highlights include the analysis of crosstalk and complex signaling networks, the use of mass spectrometry, role of miRNA in pathway regulation, and involvement of tyrosine kinases and their downstream targets in growth, adhesion, invasion, metastasis, the tumor microenvironment, angiogenesis, immunology, and neurobiology. To foster collaboration and translational research, presentations and a special workshop on therapeutic targeting will be hosted by experts. Travel grants and poster awards will be available for trainees. An impressive slate of world-renown speakers combined with the intimacy of a highly focused agenda with ample opportunities for discussion and interaction, are designed to enhance collaboration and foster new ideas and research directions in the field.
Since 1982, FASEB SRC has offered a continuing series of inter-disciplinary exchanges that are recognized as a valuable complement to the highly successful society meetings. Divided into small groups, scientists from around the world meet intimately and without distractions to explore new approaches to those research areas undergoing rapid scientific changes.
In recent years, the SRC series has expanded into non-summer months. To better enhance the SRC series and allow for future expansion of conferences, FASEB's Office of Scientific Meetings and Conferences recently changed the SRC name from Summer Research Conferences to Science Research Conferences.
FASEB SRC has announced a total of 36 SRCs in 2012, spanning from June through October. To register for an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2012 SRCs, please visit http://www.faseb.org/SRC.
Additionally, in efforts to continue expanding the SRC series, potential organizers are encouraged to contact SRC staff at SRC@faseb.org. Proposal guidelines can be found by clicking "Submit a Proposal" on our website at http://www.faseb.org/SRC.
FASEB is composed of 26 societies with more than 100,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. Celebrating 100 Years of Advancing the Life Sciences in 2012, FASEB is rededicating its efforts to advance health and well-being by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
