Crossing Frontiers in Life Sciences - Symposium in Memory of Max F. Perutz

  • Conference Call
  • This year, Max F. Perutz, the Aus­trian Nobel Prize win­ner after whom our lab­o­ra­to­ries are named, would have turned 100. On this occa­sion, the Max F. Perutz Lab­o­ra­to­ries (MFPL) of the Uni­ver­sity of Vienna and the Med­ical Uni­ver­sity of Vienna would like to invite you to the sym­po­sium “Cross­ing Fron­tiers in Life Sci­ences“ which will take place on Sep­tem­ber 11 – 12, 2014 in Vienna, Aus­tria.

    For the event, we have invited 12 highly renowned sci­en­tists, as well as 10 MFPL researchers to talk about struc­tural biol­ogy, cell sig­nal­ing, bioin­for­mat­ics, RNA biol­ogy, and chro­mo­some dynam­ics. A poster ses­sion will give PhDs and Post­docs of MFPL the oppor­tu­nity to present their research. The talk and poster ses­sions as well as the con­fer­ence din­ner will be a great chance for sci­en­tists to net­work and exchange their ideas.
