Bethesda, MD – The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): Arf and Rab Family G Proteins.
The 2013 FASEB SRC on Arf and Rab family G proteins is an important and unique scientific conference in which the functions of ARF/Rab proteins in membrane trafficking and organelle biogenesis will be explored within the context of complex events such as cell polarity, adhesion, motility and division, neuronal development and synaptic transmission, tissue morphogenesis and infectious disease.
The format will include formal talks, poster sessions, and intensive scientific discussion. This SRC aims to highlight timely and important advances in the field, as well as to define outstanding questions and ways to tackle them. The underlying theme for this conference is “ARFs/Rabs as homeostatic regulators and their subversion in disease. The list of speakers includes outstanding researchers from around the world presenting cutting edge research directed towards a fundamental understanding of how Arf/Rab proteins regulate cellular and organismal physiology.
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. 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.
