Started today in the beautiful La Biodola, Elba Island, Italy, the second LEAPS Meets Conference dedicated this year to the field of Life Sciences. Over four days, more than hundred participants will be learning from distinguished scientists and thought leaders in the topics of Novel Biology, Unmet Medical Needs, Drug Discovery, Bioimaging, Computational Biology, Modern Methods in Structural Biology and Dynamics, presenting and discussing their work, networking and establishing links for future collaboration. The conference will also create the space for strategic discussions on the future of LIFE Sciences within the LEAPS member organizations.
An important feature of the LEAPS Meets Life Sciences conference is to give room for the new generation of scientists to showcase their work and have plenty of opportunity to discuss and network with leaders and senior scientists in the field.
The complete program including all accepted abstracts shows the richness and depth of the Life Sciences research that is being carried out both at the LEAPS facilities and some of the best universities across Europe.
Updates on the conference will be published in LEAPS Twitter and LinkedIn channels. Photos below are from the conference opening by Caterina Biscari, from Alba, Conference Chair, Gebhard Schertler, from PSI, Scientific Chair, Kristina Djinovic Carugo, from EMBL, Scientific Vice Chair and Oded Beja from Technion who delivered the first tutorial of the event. The conference is locally organized by INFN with support of LEAPS.
