The 15th SIBBM Seminars - Frontiers in Molecular Biology 

Bologna, Opificio Golinelli, June 11-13, 2019


Dear Colleague,


we would like to highlight the Frontiers in Molecular Biology 2019 SIBBM Seminar "Nucleic acid immunity: from cellular mechanisms to new technologies", to be held at the Opificio Golinelli, Bologna, 11-13 June 2019.


Online registrations are now open at


The Seminar includes four sessions with invited speakers and short talks selected from submitted abstracts:

Functional diversity of DNA repair mechanisms
Nucleic acid sensing: from microbes to eukaryotes
Epitranscriptome, RNA editing and new technologies
Nucleic acid sensing and immune response in diseases


The session "Science and Society" will focus on Science Funding in Italy with a round table with Iain Mattaj, Director of the Human Technopole Foundation in Milan.


The seminar will host Special Lectures sponsored by ABCD, Armenise, EMBO and EMBL. During the meeting, the prestigious "Chiara D’Onofrio" awards will be assigned to a junior and an established scientist. The "Francesca Martini" prize will be awarded to the best Poster, and travel grants will be assigned.


All scientists are encouraged to present their research activity also besides the main 2019 SIBBM seminar topics. The meeting will provide a unique opportunity to interact and collaborate with the speakers in a friendly and informal atmosphere and to promote a productive exchange of ideas and a fruitful interaction among the participants.


To further promote participation, we have reduced the registration fee in comparison to previous years for Society members. Participants can take advantage of this applying for membership before registering.


Moreover, a special "Find your match" initiative will allow participants to find jobs and job candidates.


Please register to participate in the meeting and submit your abstract, starting from 19 March 2019. The deadline for abstract submissions is 2 May 2019.


More information is available on the SIBBM Seminar website.


Looking forward to meeting you in Bologna,


The Scientific Committee
