Over the last years, cellular metabolism has been appreciated as crucial component for different biological processes, ranging from transcriptional regulation and epigenetics, to control of stem cell or cancer cell behavior and to how cells respond to stress.
The annual SIBBM Seminar is one of the most successful Italian scientific events with over 200 participants and its aim is to bring together top international and national speakers at the leading-edge of molecular and cellular biology.
For these reasons we have decided that the 2020 SIBBM Seminar held in Padua will focus on how cell metabolism impacts on several fundamental biological processes. We will also discuss ongoing efforts to understand and target metabolic networks.
To foster active participation from young scientists, nearly 50% of talks will be selected from submitted abstracts, which can be on any research topic related to molecular biology, and the registration fee is reduced in particular for Ph.D. students.
The prestigious Chiara D’Onofrio awards will be assigned to a young scientist selected from abstracts for oral communications. In addition, a Francesca Martini prize and several travel grants will be awarded to the best poster presentations.
Editors of leading journals will also be invited to attend the meeting.
Please join us at the 2020 SIBBM Seminar in Padua from 1 to 3 July to share some exciting science!
