Description

Concept

The 2013 IMB Conference will be the first major European meeting to focus on the latest findings and concepts in the fields of chromatin dynamics and stem cells. As such it will bring together experts in epigenetics, developmental biology and cellular reprogramming. The conference will be of interest both to researchers performing basic research in these fields and to applied scientists interested in cellular reprogramming and translational medicine. The conference is open to anyone interested.

Short talks will be invited based upon submitted abstracts and speakers will be chosen to ensure the topics presented are at the cutting edge of research and are complementary to the plenary lectures. The talks will be complemented by poster sessions where selected participants can present their research.

The schedule also includes social activities, such as a welcome reception, meals and coffee breaks as well as an afternoon sightseeing excursion and conference dinner. These events will ensure that there will be plenty of opportunities for informal discussions and networking.
