FASEB SRC announces conference registration open for: New Frontiers in Transport Atpases: From Mechanistic to Therapeutic Concepts

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

Bethesda, MD - The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): New Frontiers in Transport ATPases: From Mechanistic to Therapeutic Concepts.

This conference will take place June 3-8, 2012 in Snowmass, Colorado. This conference will highlight significant conceptual and technical advances in the field of the P-type, V-type, F1FO - ATPases and ABC transporters. The organizers aim to provide the most up-to-date information and identify the best science for presentation during sessions. At least 50% of speakers will be identified from submitted abstracts. Therefore, early registration and abstract submission are highly encouraged. The conference will focus on mechanistic insights generated by new structural information in the field, on new roles of ATPases in cell physiology, a burgeoning area of ATP-driven lipid transport, emerging techniques, and cellular mechanisms regulating ATPase function.

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.
