EMBL invites researchers, entrepreneurs, those with an interest in infectious disease, as well as members of its own community – including alumni and staff – to EMBL in Italy 2022: Emerging approaches in human health and infectious diseases on Thursday to Friday 26-27 May 2022. This event is a hybrid event with 85 seats available for in-person attendants on a first-come, first served basis.
The two-day event features senior leaders in industry, biotech startup representatives, experts in data and AI and academic scholars with expertise in infectious diseases. Together, we will cover subjects ranging from pathogens to structural biology and AI, as well as tools for the next pandemic. The event also aims to strengthen ties and highlight resources as well as collaboration opportunities between EMBL, GSK and networks in Italy.
The programme includes a tour of the GSK new science centre, with ample time for a poster session, refreshment breaks and networking.
This event is open to all and includes coffee breaks and lunch. Space is limited so if you would like to attend in-person, please register as early as possible to secure a spot. You can indicate online or in-person attendance on the registration form.
Who Should Attend:
EMBL in… events are open to all life scientists. The aim is to share what’s happening at EMBL with communities in our EMBL member and associate member states, as well as learn about new and innovative life sciences research and resources available in EMBL host countries. With these events, we seek to open up valuable dialogue, ensuring that as many people as possible have access to the opportunities provided by both EMBL and its alumni and partners.
