FASEB SRC: Molecular and Systems Integration of Genomic and Nongenomic Steroid Hormone Action

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

Bethesda, MD - The purpose of the 2015 conference is to bring together a diverse group of scientists with expertise ranging from endocrinology, energy metabolism, neuroendocrinology, epigenetics, environmental endocrine disruptors, cardiovascular function, reproduction, immunology, neurobiology and cancer to present exciting new discoveries that uncover fresh insights into system-wide action of nuclear hormone receptors acting at nongenomic and genomic levels. This is the only conference completely devoted to the integration of these two important signaling pathways. The diversity of this conference will foster and stimulate innovative ideas through the establishment of new collaborations or experimental approaches generated by exposure to the many model systems and provocative results of the speakers.

FASEB has announced a total of 34 Science Research Conferences (SRC) in 2015. Registration opens January 20, 2015. For more information about an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2015 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 27 societies with more than 120,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. 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.
