I will be serving as an official ASPET blogger for the Experimental Biology 2014 meeting to be held in San Diego, CA, April 26-30. I will be joined in this effort by @katiesci who blogs at http://sicknessisfascinating.blogspot.com. You might want to follow the #xbio tag on Twitter whether you are attending or not.
