2017 Annual Meeting of the « Structure et Fonctions des Macromolécules Biologique Bioinformatique et Modélisation » Graduate school

2017 Annual Meeting of the « Structure et Fonctions des Macromolécules Biologique Bioinformatique et Modélisation » Graduate school

On 10th November 2017, the 11th Annual Meeting of the Graduate school “Structure et Fonctions des Macromolécules Biologiques, Bioinformatique et Modélisation” (SFMBBM) is taking place at the University of Liège.

This year’s meeting aims to represent the spectrum of biological macromolecules, from nucleic acids to proteins and their interactions, and from their physiological function to their artificial manipulation for pharmaceutical and research applications.

The program includes eight slots for selected PhD student talks, and a poster session to give everyone the chance to present and discuss its scientific work. The talk sessions will be opened by keynote lectures given by three highly-recognized international scientists, who will also be around for discussions during the entire day. The best student presentations will be rewarded with talk and poster prizes.

The meeting is open to scientists, from any Belgian or foreign institution, irrespective of age or language regime.

The graduate school is part of a F.R.S.-FNRS Graduate College (Science) and therefore its annual meeting is held in one of the French speaking universities. Thus, it was previously organized by local young scientists in the Catholic University of Louvain (de Duve Institute, 2016), the Free University of Brussels (2015), the University of Namur (2014) and the University of Liège (2013).
