It is our privilege and special pleasure to invite you to the IUBMB Focused Meeting on “Molecular aspects and longevity” on October 16th - 19th 2017 in Athens, Greece.
IUBMB entrusted the organization of this focused meeting to Athens, as it was considered to be the ideal setting for gathering together young researchers and leading investigators from many countries.
Aging is an inevitable biological process. Unravelling the fundamental molecular mechanisms of aging and longevity is a pre-requisite for developing appropriate means of increasing “healthy lifespan”. The Meeting will focus on these axes as it aims to integrate the latest research developments and new technologies from internationally acknowledged experts as well as to attract young scientists in the field and to give them the opportunity to discuss with experts. We aim at selecting a few additional speakers from the participants. Emphasis will be given to young group-leaders and we will have an additional session for presentations by young scientists. Finally, we’ll provide several travel fellowships to young scientists, especially from the developing countries.
In this context, we look forward to welcoming you in Athens, the heart of European culture and civilization, and receiving you according to the traditional Greek hospitality.
With my best regards,
Efstathios S. Gonos,
Director of Research
IUBMB Executive Committee Member for Congresses and Conferences
