Bethesda, MD – The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): Ciliate Molecular Biology.
The 2013 FASEB Conference on Ciliate Molecular Biology is a unique forum for researchers who study Ciliates as model organisms, to share their recent results. Current work using Ciliates is making important contributions to a large number of fields including the role of small RNAs in chromatin modification and genome regulation, cytoskeletal architecture and dynamics, membrane traffic, a range of evolutionary issues, telomerase structure and function, and the assembly and maintenance of cilia and basal bodies.
Other key roles of the Conference include disseminating recent technological developments in working with Ciliates, and exploring the use of Ciliates in innovative educational programs. The attendees, who come from laboratories throughout the world, include established researchers in the field as well as scientists who are just beginning to explore Ciliates as model systems, in addition to postdocs, and both graduate and undergraduate students.
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.
