What makes #Anatomy21 a can’t-miss event?

January 5, 2021 – There are so many reasons you can’t miss the Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology, including:

  • This opportunity only comes once a year.
  • 50 symposia on basic/clinical research, educational research, and professional development for the anatomy community and related disciplines.
  • Student/Postdoc Registration & Competition Awards to ease the financial burden of attending and recognize the work of trainees.
  • 4 distinguished speakers including a Nobel laureate, internally recognized fellows – oh, and you, if you submit before the deadline!

Mark Your Calendar: New Dates for Virtual EB 2021

September 30, 2020 – Since the announcement on August 6 that Experimental Biology (EB) 2021 would be virtual, the five host societies have been hard at work identifying what an online meeting should look like, and to select a software platform capable of bringing that vision to life. Moreover, with no in-person meeting elements or restrictions, the societies also reexamined possible meeting dates. Following all of this research and requirements analysis, EB announced today new dates for the 2021 meeting.

Experimental Biology 2021 and the AAA Annual Meeting will be held April 27-30, 2021.

Additional details, including deadlines and pricing, are still in development. We will always bring you the latest information, as soon as we have it to share. We look forward to an interactive, international, insightful virtual meeting!


Experimental Biology Goes Virtual

August 6, 2020 – Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Experimental Biology (EB) has been forced to cancel our in-person meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana, May 1-4, 2021. This includes the AAA Annual Meeting at EB.

However, our Annual Meeting, along with other EB programming, will be delivered in a virtual format. You and your colleagues will have many new and exciting opportunities for scientific discovery without travel.

Our virtual meeting will bring you the latest research in anatomy and all the other EB disciplines.
