The meeting is an excellent opportunity to present your scientific achievements at the most of up-to-date topics in the field of molecular life sciences, to enforce the collaboration between academic and other partners, to establish new acquaintances with scientists from the region and elsewhere and last, but not least, it is an ideal place for gathering of young prospective scientists with their established colleagues. Scientific programme will consist of plenary lectures, invited lectures and numerous short presentations, selected from submitted abstracts, as well as of poster presentations, organized within two poster sessions. The meeting aims to gather young scientists and to contribute to their scientific development. Thus, in addition to the fellowships awarded to young scientists, we will organize poster discussion sessions and award prizes for best posters.
