URBANA -- Registration
remains open for an Oct. 1-2 symposium, "Estrogens and Human
Health," at the University of Illinois. The event will be at the
Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology.
"The symposium covers several highly
related themes," said Janice Bahr, a professor of reproductive
physiology in the Department of Animal Sciences and a member of the
event's organizing committee. "There are 15 speakers, 10 of whom are
from other research institutions, with five from the University of
Illinois. Estrogen, its mechanism of action and its many sites of
action, such as the brain, the cardiovascular system, and its action
in men and its role in implantation, autoimmunity and fat tissue
will be addressed."
Bahr said the symposium will be
especially useful for individuals interested in endocrinology,
oncology, molecular biology and reproductive medicine.
