Getting Ready for Experimental Biology 2012- part 2


Don't forget to show your pride in comparative physiology at this year's EB. If you get caught wearing something that says "comparative physiology", "Dr. Dolittle", or "Life Lines," by one of the APS staffers or members of The American Physiological Society's Communications Committee, you just may win free coffee!

I don't know about you, but I am getting very excited about the upcoming Experimental Biology conference in San Diego! Our posters have been printed and I am just taking a break from pouring over the program to decide which sessions and posters I will be visiting. These comparative physiology sessions are definitely on my list:
