In yesterday's announcement of the Sixth East Coast Regional Meeting on 
Protozoology, I mentioned harness racing in Saratoga, but failed to detail 
the major platform session and keynote address. The session to be held at 
the Axelrod Institute of the Wadsworth Center (transportation is provided to 
Albany) is entitled "What's in the water? ...waterborne protozoa" and is 
chaired by J. Keithly, R. Soave & E. Braun-Howland. It includes topics such 
as Epidemiology, Identification, Drug Development, Molecular Diagnosis, and 
HIV. Don't get the impression that us "free-living" protozoologists will be 
underrepresented at the meeting! To date there are a flood of talks on 
foraminifera and other free-livers...

The keynote speaker is Dr. Miklos Muller of Rockefeller University. His talk 
is entitled "Amitochondrial Protists: Puzzles in Metabolic Organization and 
Evolution." Dr. Muller is founding editor of Molecular and Biomedical 
Parasitology, and has authored over 150 papers on the biochemistry and 
molecular biology of amitochondriate protozoa. He is a past winner of the 
Ciliate Tie and the Hutner Award. Join us to see if he is also a winner at 
the harness track!
