Welcome to the ASPHS home page!

Thanks to all who attended the Portland conference in April; it was a great success! Special thanks to local organizers Carmen Ripollés and Patricia A. Schechter, program chair Gina Herrmann, and speakers Daniela Bleichmar and Josep Calvet. We also extend our great appreciation to outgoing President Sandie Holguín, and a warm welcome to new ASPHS president Scott Eastman.
