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.
