EB 2017 Wrap Up
This year’s Experimental Biology conference was held in the windy city of Chicago at McCormick Place. The annual meeting hosted by AAA, APS, ASBMB, ASIP, ASN and ASPET brought over 14,000 scientists and 50 guest societies from all over the world. The primary focus areas of the event are:
- Biochemistry and molecular biology
- Investigative pathology
This year’s event happened to coincide with the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo which brought out a lot of the inner fanboys/girls in us, including some of us at the booth.
At the Elsevier booth, we had over 100 books on display alongside a selection of journals that brought in a steady stream of traffic. Attendees from all over stopped by the booth to browse the latest titles, while others got to meet some of our editorial team to learn about how to publish with Elsevier. With our book-a-day giveaway, some simply stopped by to enter in the giveaway. In addition, many of our authors came by to say hi, speak with attendees, and one even signed their book to one of our book-a-day winners!
Thank you for all who stopped by and we hope to see you next year in San Diego!

Biomedicine & Biochemistry
The disciplines of biomedicine and biochemistry impact the lives of millions of people every day. Research in these areas has led to practical applications in cardiology, cancer treatment, respiratory medicine, drug development, and more. Interdisciplinary fields of study, including neuroscience, chemical engineering, nanotechnology, and psychology come together in this research to yield significant new discoveries. Elsevier’s biomedicine and biochemistry content spans a wide range of subject matter in various forms, including journals, books, eBooks, and online information services, enabling students, researchers, and clinicians to advance these fields.
