FASEB SRC announces conference registration open for: Protein Phosphatases

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

Bethesda, MD - The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): Protein Phosphatases.

This conference will take place July 15-20, 2012 in Snowmass, Colorado. It provides a forum, where researchers interested in and working on protein phosphatase can meet and discuss their unpublished data, exchange ideas and hypotheses, report about new technologies and intensify and start new collaborations. This 12th biennial conference will include keynote presentations from Drs Jack Dixon and David Sabatini, and sessions on cancer, metabolic disorders, developmental abnormalities, structure, function, regulation, signaling mechanisms, new frontiers and enabling thechnologies, and chemical biology and therapeutics. These sessions will also include short talks selected from submitted abstracts. The goal is to promote the development of fundamental areas of protein phosphatase biology and ultimately facilitate progress towards new therapies for human diseases.


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 recent years, the SRC series has expanded into non-summer months. To better enhance the SRC series and allow for future expansion of conferences, FASEB's Office of Scientific Meetings and Conferences recently changed the SRC name from Summer Research Conferences to Science Research Conferences.

FASEB SRC has announced a total of 36 SRCs in 2012, spanning from June through October. To register for an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2012 SRCs, please visit

Additionally, in efforts to continue expanding the SRC series, potential organizers are encouraged to contact SRC staff at Proposal guidelines can be found by clicking "Submit a Proposal" on our website at

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. Celebrating 100 Years of Advancing the Life Sciences in 2012, FASEB is rededicating its efforts to advance health and well-being by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
