Host Destination: Lexington

Welcome to the 2023 ASN Meeting in Lexington

Lexington is in the Bluegrass region west of the Appalachian Mountains and east of the Ohio riverbed in central Kentucky. This lush region was the hunting ground for many Native American tribes before European settlers arrived at the scene in the 17th century.

Lexington was founded in 1775 and soon developed into a vibrant city with a rich and progressive culture earning Lexington the nick name “Athens of the West”. Today, Lexington is a cosmopolitan city known as the horse (and Bourbon) capital of the world; and home to the University of Kentucky, a public land-grant research university with 31,000 students and more than 200 academic programs ranging from life sciences to engineering and liberal arts. The University of Kentucky is proud to support the 2023 ASN meeting and welcomes you to visit the campus in walking distance to downtown Lexington and the Kroger stadium, home of the Kentucky Wildcats, best known for their college basketball, football, and baseball teams (Go blue!).

When you feel like having a stroll after enjoying the outstanding scientific program at our meeting, you can book a tour at one of our downtown Bourbon distilleries, visit LexLife entertainment and the downtown arts centers, or enjoy the diverse cosmopolitan dining options nearby. If you feel more adventurous and stay a bit longer, hiking or kayaking in the Red River Gorge, or ziplining in the limestone Mega Caverns will keep you excited for several days of fun.     

The 2023 Lexington 2023 ASN Meeting offers a dynamic and exciting scientific program presenting 4 internationally renowned Plenary Speakers together with 24 symposia and 10 colloquiums covering the most recent evidence on a wide range of research topics. Multiple social gatherings will provide ample opportunity to bring young and established scientists with diverse expertise and background together. New and emerging scientists will be recognized with prestigious awards while poster sessions will host lively discussions to trigger future collaborations.
