ABCD promotes the integrated disciplines of Cell, Molecular and Developmental Biology, both at the cellular and organismal level. We believe that a fundamental knowledge of how cells perform homeostatic functions and respond to environmental stress is key to the understanding of disease pathogenesis.
To fulfill its mission, ABCD fosters the gathering of national and international scientists at meetings, study groups and through media communication. Most importantly, ABCD emphasizes the importance of education and training of junior scientists. To this aim, ABCD contributes to professional development of young researchers at all levels, ranging from the acquisition of scientific scholarship to raising awareness of a scientist’s ethical and social responsibility.
