FASEB SRC announces conference: Mitochondrial Assembly & Dynamics in Health, Disease & Aging

Bethesda, MD – The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): Mitochondrial Assembly and Dynamics in Health, Disease and Aging.

The 2013 Conference on Mitochondrial Assembly and Dynamics in Health, Disease and Aging is a timely and unique scientific conference, where diverse aspects of mitochondrial biology and dysfunction are explored through formal talks, poster sessions, and intensive scientific discussion. This meeting includes outstanding researchers from around the world, presenting cutting-edge research directed towards a fundamental understanding of the basic biology and biochemistry of mitochondria and their increasingly recognized roles in human disease.

The underlying theme of the 2013 conference is to foster productive interactions between investigators that study important basic aspects of mitochondrial structure and function and those focused on how disruption of mitochondrial homeostasis contributes to disease pathogenesis. It is expected that this meeting will spur collaborations and promote a more comprehensive understanding of this complex organelle and how its dysfunction contributes to human diseases and aging.

FASEB SRC has announced a total of 34 SRCs in 2013. To register for an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2013 SRCs, please visit www.faseb.org/SRC.

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 efforts to expand the SRC series, potential organizers are encouraged to contact SRC staff at SRC@faseb.org. Proposal guidelines can be found at 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. FASEB enhances the ability of scientists and engineers to improve—through their research—the health, well-being and productivity of all people. Our mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
