6th EMBO Meeting 2015 Birmingham - Advancing the Life Sciences

  • Conference Call
  • You are kindly invited to participate in the 6th EMBO Meeting 2015 – Advancing the Life Sciences, which will be held on September 5 – 8, 2015 in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

    Aims

    The EMBO Meeting is an annual event held in Europe to promote the life sciences and the exchange of scientific results. The meeting encourages scientists to look beyond their own fields, engage with the international scientific community and explore interdisciplinary approaches to research in the life sciences. Participants experience new perspectives on topics that cover the entire range of the life sciences – from studies of molecules and the cell all the way up to investigation of larger, complex biological systems.

    The EMBO Meeting:

    • Fosters interactions among the community of life scientists in Europe and beyond
    • Allows scientists from all countries in Europe to hear talks by leading international researchers from all over the world
    • Helps to promote excellence in the life sciences to the widest possible audience
    • Provides young researchers with access to career opportunities through networking events and other career-​related activities

    Keynote Lectures

    • Nuclear non-​coding RNAs of viral and cellular origin: more surprises” – Joan A. Steitz, Yale University School of Medicine & HHMI, New Haven
