The mission of the AHA Basic Cardiovascular Sciences Scientific
Sessions is to promote interaction among participants from diverse
disciplines through lectures, poster presentations and informal discussions.
The American Society of Human Genetics Annual Meeting is held each
fall in a major U.S. or Canadian city and attracts over 7,000
scientific attendees, plus almost 250 exhibiting companies, which
makes it the world’s largest gathering of human genetics professionals.
Highlights include invited symposia; plenary, platform, and poster
sessions; education/trainee workshops; career opportunities and
networking events; and public policy sessions. ASHG members and
leading scientists from around the world are selected to present their
research findings. Abstracts of work submitted and accepted for
presentation are published and citable online. The abstract deadline
is in early June each year.
Registration at the ASHG Annual Meeting includes access to hundreds
of presentations and to online webcast recordings of selected sessions
as well as admission to exhibits on the latest laboratory equipment,
products, publications, and software.
The ASCB annual meeting focuses on cell biology as the fundamental
basis of biology and exploring more specialized fields, such as
neurobiology and stem cell biology.
The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) is an international
community of biologists studying the cell, the fundamental unit of
life. They are dedicated to advancing scientific discovery, advocating
sound research policies, improving education, promoting professional
development, and increasing diversity in the scientific workforce.
This event is co-sponsored by the European Molecular Biology
Organization (EMBO), an organization of more than 1800 leading
researchers that promotes excellence in the life sciences.
