Volunteer Service Project

Give a Day of Service to San Diego at EB 2020

ASPET Member Lounge

Open Saturday through Tuesday of the annual meeting in Room 17B of the convention center.  It’s where ASPET members can grab a daily morning coffee, hold one-on-one meetings, network with colleagues, meet ASPET members and leaders, relax, or catch up on work using ASPET Wifi.

Pharmacology Posters Highlighted

ASPET has several ways to help you find the latest and greatest in pharmacology research. There are daily pharmacology poster sessions on Sunday through Tuesday of the annual meeting on a variety of specialized pharmacology topics and complementing that day’s symposia.

The poster presentation hours of 10:00 am – 12:00 pm are unopposed. No symposia are scheduled during this time period.

Look for blue ribbons to find the ASPET Program Committee’s Blue Ribbon Picks. These are the highest scoring ASPET abstracts.

Stop by the ASPET Daily Datablitz in the poster hall on Sunday through Tuesday at 10:30 am for a fast-paced half hour of the top science of the day. Ten young scientists each give 3 minute teasers of their posters. Visit their posters afterwards to learn more.
