Tomorrow morning the pre-conference workshops for the 2013 SAR conference here in Ann Arbor will begin! I've been waiting for this conference for a while and am excited to see it finally roll around.
In order to reflect on the talks and share interesting developments, I've decided to post summaries and comments as frequently as I can during the next four days. There are two workshops tomorrow morning, and I will be at #2 "Challenges of Acupuncture Clinical Research in China." I certainly found doing acupuncture research in China challenging (though perhaps for different reasons than the workshop panelists ;P ), so I'm looking forward to hearing some new perspectives on it.
Even though acupuncture research is a fairly obscure field, there are several 'household names' giving talks in the next couple days, some of which are also personal heroes of mine. I just hope I can keep up with everything without getting burnt out!
