FASEB SRC announces conference: TGF-β Superfamily: Signaling in Development & Disease

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): TGF-β Superfamily: Signaling in Development and Disease.

The 2013 "TGF-β Superfamily: Signaling in Development and Disease" is an important and unique scientific conference where the pivotal role of TGF- family members in developmental and homeostatic processes is explored through formal talks, poster sessions, and interactive and intensive scientific discussion sessions. The sessions are organized in different themes and are all held in an intimate setting with a limited number of participants.

This meeting includes outstanding researchers from around the world presenting diverse, cutting edge and forward looking research directed towards a fundamental understanding of the mechanisms of TGF-β family signaling: how these factors coordinate developmental processes, how aberrations in this signaling pathway lead to developmental abnormalities and human disease pathologies, and how this knowledge may come to be applied in the clinic.

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.
