This is the final announcement of the Sixth East Coast Regional Meeting on
Protozoology, to be held June 21-23, 1995 at Union College, Schenectady, New
York, USA. Sponsored by the Society of Protozoologists (but open to both
members and non-members), this meeting offers researchers and students a
forum in which to discuss their latest findings in all areas of the field.
Platform sessions focus on nutrition, physiology, motility, biochemistry,
immunology, genetics, morphology, taxonomy, structural & molecular biology,
ecology, and evolution.
On June 22nd the meeting includes a workshop session at the Wadsworth Center
in Albany, with a roundtable discussion on waterborn protozoa as well as a
tour of the David Axelrod Institute. A vendor display will also be held.
Schenectady is particularly lovely this time of year, and harness racing
fans are happily reminded that the Saratoga flat track is a short trip away.
The NY capital region is also the site of numerous historical landmarks. The

terminals are conveniently situated in downtown Schenectady. A special rate
