pisa 2016Meeting News
If you have not already heard, ASIP is doing it PISA 2016! This interactive, abstract-driven, focused scientific conference entitled Breakthroughs in Biology: Form Underlying Pathogenesis to Translational Medicine will take place October 20-22, 2016 at the Houston Methodist Research Institute and the Marriott Houston Medical Center in Houston, TX.

PISA will present exciting and up-to-date concepts in pathogenesis and translational medicine. World-acclaimed scientists in these areas will deliver lectures, while experienced members of the program committee will moderate discussion during these sessions to generate a cordial, collegial and contemporary environment for learning and networking. Major lectures will be interspersed with abstract-driven talks. Additionally, poster discussion sessions held in proximity to major talks will build an intimate setting for intellectual exchange and constructive criticism, especially for trainees and junior faculty. The deadline to submit abstracts and applications for Trainee and Junior Faculty Travel Awards is June 30, 2016. Registration will be opening soon so make your plans now to attend!
