Bethesda, MD – The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): The Biology of Calpains in Health and Disease.
The 2013 FASEB Science Research Conference on The Biology of Calpains in Health and Disease brings together investigators from a wide range of disciplines to focus on the biology of calpains and understanding and treating diseases that involve these proteins. The conference will cover a diversity of topics ranging from bioinformatics of calpain substrates, calpains and signal transduction, role of calpains in cell and tissue degeneration, and contributions of calpains to various disorders. In addition to invited speakers from around the world presenting cutting edge research, a feature of this meeting is "New and Notable" talks in which the most exciting abstracts will be selected to for platform presentations. This provides a forum for young investigators and will include the most current research in the field.
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. 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.
