The SIBBM Seminars gather every year up to 200 participants and, since their start in 2004, have become one of the most successful scientific events in Italy. This year’s topic intends to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Nobel Prices given for the discovery of DNA structure and the elucidation of the first protein three-dimensional structures. The meeting also offers an exciting opportunity for young researchers and PhD students to talk about their work and experiences. Nearly 50% of the talks will be selected from participants' submitted abstracts.

A highlight of the SIBBM Seminars are the "Chiara D'Onofrio" awards, the most prestigious prize in Biomedical Sciences in Italy, awarded to both a senior scientist as well as to the best oral presentation by a young scientist.

Our Society has recently established a joint programme with EMBO. Thus, we expect to have several international speakers including EMBO members, as well as Harvard-Armenise Foundation fellows. Editors of leading journals will also be invited to attend the meeting.

Groups of Ph.D. students from the same Course or School can benefit from a discounted fee: 50 EUR for each participant. Please contact the SIBBM Treasurer for additional details and before registration.
