FEBS Congresses are showcases of the advances in the molecular bio and medical sciences. We will arrange for an attractive and exciting scientific programme that will reflect the most recent advances in molecular biology and biochemistry. At the same time FEBS Congresses serve important roles in networking between scientists from Europe and the whole world. Importantly, FEBS Congresses also serve the purpose of training young scientists and integrating them into the larger scientific community. We are dedicated to make FEBS2010 a forum for young scientists to interact with peers in the field. The Young Scientist Forum is dedicated to this purpose but also the main Congress will encompass many relevant activities.
