Scientific Interest Group News
ASIP encourages all trainees to play an active role in Scientific Interest Groups (SIGs). SIGs provide a forum to interact with others trainees and experts in the field. It’s a fantastic way to initiate discussions, foster collaborations, and network.
Cell Injury Scientific Interest Group
We are pleased to announce that we have begun to establish our inaugural program events at Experimental Biology 2012. On Sunday there will be a social event sponsored by the Cell Injury Scientific Interest Group (Die Schaden Klub), which will include a poster session. We are also sponsoring our first mini-symposium during the meeting. It is an honor to have Dr. Renato Iozzo as our featured speaker. His work is one of the most cited in the field of Matrix biology, with over 12,000 citations to date. We are currently looking for additional speakers for the mini-symposium and the poster session that will be held during Die Schaden Klub. If you are interested in having your work considered for presentation, please submit an abstract to EB 2012 under one of the categories listed below. Please contact Dr. Cecelia Yates (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in participating in this group and/or have any questions regarding the program.

Veterinary Pathology Scientific Interest Group
Poster Session and Luncheon at Experimental Biology 2012: Networking Across the Borders
As part of the activities at Experimental Biology 2012, you are invited to the Veterinary Pathology Scientific Interest Group Poster Session and Luncheon. The ever-growing and very interactive session will be held Monday, April 23, 2012, immediately following the ACVP-sponsored symposium, "Evolutionary Aspects of Animal Models", chaired by Elizabeth Uhl with co-chair Michael Oglesbee. The poster session and free luncheon are great opportunities to present and discuss your research, network for new colleagues, and greet old friends. This gathering is attended by researchers from the reaches of the globe with interests ranging from understanding the mechanisms of spontaneous diseases in animals to correlating homologues of animal and human disease.
Neuropathology Scientific Interest Group
We are in need of members to assist with development of the Neuropathology Scientific Interest Group (SIG). As you may or may not know, these groups provide a forum to interact with other trainees and experts in the field and allow members to initiate discussions, foster collaborations and network. Importantly, SIGs help determine scientific programming for the Annual Meeting as well as social/networking events. If you are interested in becoming an active participant of this SIG, please email Tara Snethen, ASIP Senior Director of Meetings and Society Services at email@example.com.
