We are pleased to announce the upcoming ABCD Congress, to be held in Bologna (Italy) from 21 to 23 September 2017.
This event will bring together scientists from across the world and will offer an invaluable opportunity to discuss scientific issues in the fields of cell biology and differentiation. The congress will be open to all researchers from Italy and abroad: join us and meet scientists whose outstanding studies are defining the state of the art in the field of cell biology. Keynote speakers who confirmed their participation include David Sabatini, Peter Walter, Angela Nieto and Nikolaus Rajewsky.
In the wake of the success of the last edition, the congress will be preceded by a pre-congress meeting, on 20-21 September, reserved for post-docs and Ph.D. students who are under 35 years at the date of the congress. Keynote lectures will be held by Tom Kirchhausen (Harvard Medical School, USA) and Carmine Settembre (Tigem, Naples, Italy), and informal interactions between the invited speakers and the young participants will take place during the sessions and at dinner. Attendance will be limited to 70 participants. All post-docs and Ph.D. students accepted to attend the pre-congress meeting will receive a travel fellowship of €150 to help defray their lodging and travel costs.
We look forward to welcoming you to Bologna, a fascinating city with a 40-km network of medieval porticoed streets that make this place unique!
