Bethesda, MD – The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): Biology and Chemistry of Vision.
Since its inception in 1985, the Biology and Chemistry of Vision FASEB Science Research Conference has been one of the premier and most successful meetings focused on photoreceptor biology. The upcoming 2013 meeting will highlight the most recent advances in a broad and diverse range of photoreceptor function issues.
This meeting brings together premier senior and junior investigators of different expertise to discuss pigment and retinoid turnover, the biochemistry and physiology of phototransduction, photoreceptor cell biology and development, synaptic transmission, and invertebrate vision, as well as vision disorders, animal models, and therapy. In keeping with the success in past meetings, the 2013 conference will continue to emphasize close and intense scientific interactions among the participants, especially between senior and junior investigators.
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.
