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): Biology of Cilia and Flagella.

The 2013 Biology of Cilia and Flagella Conference is an important and unique scientific conference where basic and translational research intersect to drive rapid advances in the field of cilia/flagella and human ciliopathies. The underlying theme of the 2013 conference is the intriguing dance between basic research in model systems and clinical research in human disease syndromes. This conference will provide a venue for intense scientific discussion of recent advances in cilia and flagella biology and foster collaborations between researchers from around the world interested in basic, clinical, and developmental relevance of the cilium.


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

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 Proposal guidelines can be found at

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.
