American Association of Neuropathologists wraps up its annual meeting in San Antonio
The American Association of Neuropathologists (AANP) finished up their annual meeting this past Sunday in San Antonio, Texas. Dr. John Donahue snapped the photo above at the reception dinner. Dr. Donahue had this to say: "The most fascinating thing I heard [at the meeting] was that A-beta, particularly 1-42, is a superb antimicrobial agent and may be the reason it's formed endogenously." Another attendee, Dr. Robert Struble, tells me that the meeting was better than it had been in recent years, with several interesting presentations. He suggests that the success of the meeting may be a sign of a reinvigorated organization.
