Dear Colleague,

I am writing to ask whether you would consider joining the British Society
for Research on Ageing.
Formed in 1943, the BSRA is the world's oldest gerontological society. It
has an international membership base and welcomes members from throughout
the world.  Membership costs 20 pounds sterling (membership alone) or 50
pounds (new membership plus Mech.  Ageing Dev. for the remainder of 2000).
As a Member you would get the following package of benefits:
A one day meeting that this year will be held on 14th July 2000 at St.
Thomas's Hospital in London.
Sessions include:
"Ageing: Cradle to Grave" (Haynes UK, Merry UK, Wolfe USA)
"Reproduction, Stress and Survival" (te Velde, Utrecht plus
oral communications)
"Stem cells, Ageing and Senescence" (Svenson UK, Potten UK,
Rufer Geneva).
As a BSRA member you will receive:
1.	Reduced ASM registration fee (30 pounds for Members)
2.	Prizes. Because we believe in helping younger scientists the ASM contains
sessions for them to present their work either orally or as posters, with
prizes in both categories for the best work from a BSRA member.
3.	Bursaries to enable some students who are BSRA members to attend the ASM.
4.	Published abstracts.  Abstracts from all work presented at this year's
ASM will be published in Mech. Ageing Dev..

The Society welcomes international Members and strives to make the ASM as
easy as possible to attend, with simple travel connections to London
Heathrow airport and assistance with local accommodation if necessary.
