BioCity Symposium shows the invisible – Nobel Laureate Stefan Hell as the keynote speaker

The 28th annual BioCity Symposium is organized August 23rd–24th2018 with the title Seeing the invisibleThe symposium will show how fundamental cellular, molecular and medical discoveries have been enabled by the broad spectrum of biological and medical techniques that we have available. The symposium spans topics from basic cell biology to immunology, cancer, and neurobiology. The symposium will, through these seminal discoveries, emphasize the evolution and range of biological and medical imaging techniques that continue to bring these innovations to light. 

One of the keynote speakers is Professor Stefan Hell who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2014. This year the BioCity Symposium will also feature the new European imaging infrastructure platform Euro-Bioimaging, the headquarters of which will be established in Turku during 2018, coordinating access to the best imaging centers in Europe. Euro-Bioimaging will be the global gateway to the forefront of European biological and medical imaging, including the latest techniques to unravel molecular mechanisms in cells and tissues as well as advanced technologies for medical studies in animals and clinical observations of humans.

Participants of the BioCity Symposium represent different research areas such as molecular biology, cell biology, biomedicine and clinical research from both universities and companies. A significant proportion of attendants are PhD students and post-docs. Researchers are encouraged to participate to the poster exhibition and submit a poster abstract latest 12.6.2018. On the basis of the submitted abstracts we invite four researchers to give a short talk in the symposium. Registration deadline to the symposium is 10.8.2018 and the event is free of charge. Registration and poster abstract submission online. Please, check the symposium trailer and read the full news story.
