Dear Ronald Sherman,
5051_Earl_Bathurst_Cocklewood_Harbour_(c) Mike Crowe
Final Call for Abstracts . . . The 8th International Conference on Biotherapy organizing committee announced this week that the deadline for submitting abstracts for the Conference has been extended until August 31. Apparently abstracts are still coming in, and the Conference organizers don't want anyone to be left out.

You shouldn't be left out, either!   Register for ICB-2010, and reserve your room at the Hollywood - Universal Hilton now, before the discounted rooms are all sold. 

Read more about the Conference below, or check out the Conference website: www.bterfoundation.org/icb/icb2010.htm.
