The PanAmerican Society for Pigment Cell Research (PASPCR) is a scientific society devoted to those of us interested in various aspects of pigment cells. Our Society is a very interactive one, meeting on an annual basis, and is composed of clinicians, developmental biologists, biochemists, immunologists, cell biologists, molecular biologists, chemists and physicists, among other disciplines. Look at the PASPCR Information page for more information on our Society.

Over the period that started on Thursday, April 14, Japan experienced a series of earthquakes, culminating into a 7.0 scale quake that hit the city of Kumamoto early Saturday morning.
