 Decision on 2009 symposium topic

Hello Fellow IABMR Board Members,

This year I am responsible for organizing the symposium that will take place on November 19, 2009. It would be best if we could come to an early decision for the topic of our symposium. This should increase our chances of having outstanding scientific speakers accept our invitations before their busy schedules preclude their attendance. It will also enhance our ability to entice paying vendors to come and support our meeting.

In the interest of an early decision, the Forsyth IABMR Board members had an impromptu meeting to discuss possible meeting topics. We felt that RNAi might be a good topic because so many outstanding scientists are nearby (especially at the University of Massachusetts) who could potentially speak at our meeting. If we do go with the RNAi topic, the subject of the meeting could become “RNAi in Development and Disease”. The meeting schedule would be the same or similar to that of last year’s meeting.

Please let me know by responding to this email if you think the RNAi meeting topic is a good one. If you have better alterative topics, please send them along for consideration. We will have a full-Board meeting soon to finalize the decisions. In any case, if you know of an outstanding speaker for the RNAi topic or for a topic of your own choice, be sure to let me know the name of the potential speaker

Please respond to this email by Wednesday July 29, 2009. We are already planning for another outstanding meeting and we want your input.

With Best Regards,
