Bethesda, MD - The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): Signal Transduction in the Immune System.
The 2013 FASEB Science Research Conference on Signal Transduction in the Immune System will be focusing on recent advances in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying the immune response. In the recent years, investigations aimed at understanding the innate and adaptive immune responses have provided a wealth of new information on the mechanisms regulating leukocyte activation and function.
Insights into this area have come from a wide array of approaches including human and mouse genetics, biochemical studies, in vivo imaging, cell biological approaches, mathematical modeling, and RNA biology. The overall objectives of this conference will be to bring together researchers in each of these disciplines, and to foster a more rapid and effective integration of the new information. This conference will also aim at disseminating new advances rapidly and broadly, with the expected outcome to benefit our ability to modulate the immune system for combating disease.
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.
