[SEPT. 28, 2004]  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.
