Conference Summary

Launched in 2000, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) is dedicated to exploring emergent knowledge on rapid and genomic actions of nuclear receptors in health and disease. This year, the SRC is jointly organized by FASEB and the International Committee on Rapid Responses to Steroid Hormones (RRSH), which held its first bi-annual meeting in 1998 and has convened in Europe, North America, and Asia. This is the first conference organized by FASEB and RRSH. 

The conference achieves significant cross-fertilization of ideas and in-depth discussions by gathering scientists and clinicians working in endocrinology, metabolism, cancer, reproduction, and development. This SRC, co-organized by two societies, is unique in this regard and offers exposure to scientific discoveries that often translate into more effective medical therapies.
