Bethesda, MD - The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): Gastrointestinal Tract XV: Epithelia, Microbes, Inflammation and Cancer.
The 2013 conference on Histone Deacetylases, Sirtuins, and Reversible Acetylation in Signaling and Disease is an important and unique scientific conference where the biological functions of reversible protein acetylation are explored through formal talks, poster sessions, and intensive scientific discussion. The underlying theme for the 2013 conference is how targeting the enzymes that "write", "erase", and "read" protein acetylation marks can be exploited for therapeutic benefit in in a wide range of diseases.
This meeting includes outstanding researchers from around the world presenting cutting edge research directed towards understanding how reversible acetylation is linked to fundamental processes such as genome stability, DNA replication, gene expression, and metabolism and how this impacts stem cell functions, aging, neurodegeneration, and cancer development.
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.
