Abstract : The Sixth Symposium on Subtypes of Muscarinic Receptors, held in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. from Nov.9-12, 1994 had 190 attendees, 87 of whom were from 16 countries outside the U.S.. Thirty-one major papers were presented, 3 by women scientists and 3 by the winners of the Otto Loewi New Investigator Awards. There were 97 posters presented in the 2 scheduled sessions but posters were accessible for the entire 3 1/2 day meeting. Clinical data on Xanomeline, a new drug for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease was also presented. Funds granted by USAMRAA made it possible to publish quickly and disseminate widely the Symposium Procedings. The edited manuscripts of the invited papers and the abstracts of poster papers were published Feb.10, 1995 as Vol.56, Nos.11/12 of Life Sciences and sent free to its thousands of subscribers and to hundreds of others. Grants from NSF and NIH supported the attendance of 29 pre- and postdoctoral fellows, 26 of whom presented posters. The choice of dates and venue for the Symposium also made it possible for many to attend The Society for Neuroscience meeting.
