Enrich your career with this year’s theme, “Integrative Technologies for Advancing Scientific Cores”. The ABRF 2015 Annual Meeting will be held on March 28th-31st at the America’s Convention Center in the heart of downtown St. Louis. The Renaissance Grand Hotel, located just across the street from the convention center, is the official conference hotel. Its central location will place you near the many downtown attractions, restaurants and shops. St. Louis is filled with exciting networking opportunities for those who may consider arriving early or staying late, such as:
