The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology meets in Boston

January 20, 2004

What: The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will hold its 2004 annual meeting this year in concert with the 8th Annual Conference of the International Union for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, rather than joining the multi-specialty Experimental Biology as ASBMB frequently does. For five days, scientists from across the United States and the world will present the latest research on how cells work at the molecular level, and how scientists are using this new knowledge to create diagnostic profiles for diseases, intervene in disease processes, and develop new therapies and therapeutic approaches.

When: Saturday, June 12 - Wednesday, June 16

Where: Hynes Convention Center, Boston, Mass.

How: This year's meeting integrates cellular biochemistry, molecular recognition, chemical biology, and bioinformatics under the unifying theme, "A Molecular Exploration of the Cell." Scientists (and journalists) can choose from:

Media contact: To register for the meeting, or receive more press information, contact Sarah Goodwin, media relations for ASBMB 2004, at 770-270-0989 or asbmb04@bellsouth.net. Daily media briefings will be held during the meeting, and meeting updates will be posted at http://www.eurekalert.org.

Visit http://www.asbmb.org/meetings for more information on the meeting itself. Feb. 11 is the deadline for scientists to submit papers and for students - undergraduate, graduate, graduate minority, and postdoctoral - to apply for the numerous travel awards made available by the ASBMB.
