Meeting venue – The Michigan League
We will have seven outstanding plenary speakers, twenty exciting symposia covering diverse topics in comparative endocrinology, and six panels/workshops covering subjects such as career development, funding for comparative endocrinology research, emerging tecnologies and model systems for endocrine disrupter research, and the application of genomic tools to comparative endocrinology.
We will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first issue of the official journal of the NASCE, General and Comparative Endocrinology with a special symposium and reception. NASCE 2011 will have partial overlap with the 7th International Symposium on Amphibian and Reptilian Endocrinology and Neurobiology (ISAREN). There will be discounted registration fees for attendees of both meetings.
We hope that you will join us at this exciting time for comparative endocrinology in North America!
