You are cordially invited to attend the 25th Meeting of the Northeast US Chapter of the International Isotope Society, organized by the Novartis Isotope Laboratory. This meeting will be held at The Madison Hotel in Morristown, NJ, on October 21 and 22, 2010. As in past years, this year’s symposium will focus on the synthesis and applications of isotopically labeled compounds. This includes the synthesis, purification, and analysis of compounds labeled with long-lived isotopes (tritium, carbon-14, sulfur-35), stable isotopes, and short-lived isotopes, together with the applications of these isotopes and compounds in research. Potential topics include the use of isotopes in drug discovery and development and the applications of short-lived isotopes in biomarker and in vivo imaging.
I am pleased to welcome the following as our invited speakers who currently are:
• Dr. Daniel Howard, Global Head, Pharamcokinetics/Rharmacodynamics
• Dr. John R. Engen, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Northeastern University
I invite you to participate in the scientific portion of the meeting by submitting an abstract for either a poster or oral presentation. Registration, abstract submission, and exhibitor information is provided in this mailing.
I am confident that this will prove to be an exciting exhibition and symposium thanks to the support of International Isotope Society members and generous sponsors. I look forward to seeing you this fall.
