The 42nd Congress of The Federation of the European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) will take place on September 10–14th, 2017. This Congress will be held in the multi-cultural and historical city of Jerusalem at the well-known international convention center "Binyane Hauma". The center is located at the entrance to Jerusalem and is only an hour away from Tel Aviv, the city that never sleeps. Less than an hour in the other direction brings you to the famous Dead Sea.
The 2017 FEBS Congress, entitled "From molecules to cells and back", will cover the entire spectrum of molecular life sciences with symposia that include:
Pioneers and leading researchers from all aspects of molecular life sciences have confirmed their participation. Among the plenary speakers are Nobel laureate Robert J. Lefkowitz (Duke University), Patrick Cramer (Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen), Carol Robinson (University of Oxford), Marcelo Rubinstein (University of Buenos Aires), Jonathan Weissman (University of California) and Feng Zhang (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
In addition, there will be early-bird practical sessions, and discussion sessions on topics such as science and society, careers and education. Active participation of delegates is encouraged through short talks, speed talks, and poster sessions. Furthermore, the FEBS Young Scientists’ Forum (YSF), intended to promote interactions between pre- and post-doctoral scientists, is scheduled just before the Congress, on September 7–10th, 2017.
