The ASU Center for the Study of Early Events in 
Photosynthesis is serving as local organizing committee for 
the next annual meeting of the American Society for 
Photobiology.  As will be seen from the announcement below, 
the meeting will feature a significant photosynthesis 
component, and will be of interest to many of you.


        Photosynthesis Symposia on Cutting Edge Research

   The American Society for Photobiology will host a string 
of symposia on aspects of photosynthesis research at its next 
annual meeting, to be held at the Marriott Camelback Inn, 
Scottsdale, AZ, 25-29 June 1994.  The following symposia may 
be of special interest to photosynthesis researchers.

Other highlights of the meeting include lectures on solar 
energy conversion (Mostafa El-Sayed), UV and AIDS (Janusz 
Beer) and light-dependent compasses in animals, and symposia 
on DNA repair, electron paramagnetic resonance, free electron 
lasers, therapy of lupus erythematosus, and various aspects 
of DNA research.  Several schools will be offered, including 
one on UV dosimetry and action spectroscopy.
