Due to the pandemic and for the safety of our participants and members we have decided to transfer the regular 8th EUROBIOTECH congress to spring. The new congress date is 20-22 June. Conferences were and will be the best way to present results, exchange ideas and plan collaboration. Although this has dramatically changed and has been limited by the current situation, we strongly believe that situation will eventually return to normal. We plan the classical meeting, allowing face-to-face (with reasonable distance) contact of the scientists. The Conference will be held in the International Exhibition and Convention Centre EXPO Krakow.
In the time of COVID-19 pandemics, societies appreciate more the significate of science and ongoing development to cure and prevent the spread of diseases. Thanks to the hard work of the scientists, the effective anti-SARS-Cov-2 vaccines are now available. However, we all realise that medical problems are not limited to viral infections. Therefore, continuous efforts are undertaken for investigations on new tools and methods of modelling the diseases, drug discovery and innovative therapies.
During the two and half-day meeting the plenary sessions and parallel symposia will be organized on the most key aspects of medical biotechnology. We invite colleagues interested in stem cell biology, gene therapy and drug discovery. We will discuss modern tools used for genetic engineering, such as gene editing and gene transfer, the basic and translational research in stem cell biology as well as the new methods of diseases modelling and drug research, including the search for vaccines against the coronavirus. The special part of the EUROBIOTECH 2022 will be the open session on “Stem cells: hopes and hypes”, with the lectures of the professionals: researchers and bioethicists, and with the possibility of discussion with the public.
We do hope that the timely subject of our congress, as well as the fantastic location in the King’s City of Kraków, will convince you to actively participate in the 8th EUROBIOTECH congress.
We are looking forward to seeing you at Kraków in June!
