Date:7/29/2014

PARIS, 29 JULY 2014 With thirty days to go and almost 2500 registered participants, the final preparations for the FEBS-EMBO 2014 Conference are well underway. The event, a joint venture between the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS), EMBO, and the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SFBBM), will take place from Saturday, 30 August to Thursday, 4 September at the Palais des Congrs in Paris, France.

The FEBS-EMBO 2014 Conference is the largest meeting for the life sciences in Europe this year. It features more than one hundred lectures, workshops and symposia on established and emerging areas of research. The conference will celebrate the 50th anniversaries of FEBS and EMBO and the centennial of the SFBBM.

Journalists and science writers will have abundant opportunities to learn about the latest research from leading scientists:

  • Catherine Dulac of Harvard University will deliver the opening keynote lecture on the cellular and molecular architecture of neural circuits underlying instinctive social behaviour
  • Svante Pbo of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology will give a keynote lecture entitled A Neandertal Perspective on Human Origins
  • Michael N. Hall of the University of Basel will present the Sir Hans Krebs Lecture focusing on mTOR signalling in cell growth and metabolism
  • Denis Le Bihan of the CEA Saclay Center will deliver the Louis-Jeantet 2014 Prize Lecture on the use of water diffusion MRI for detection and monitoring of neurological diseases
  • Plenary session speakers include Hans Clevers of the Hubrecht Institute, Elaine Fuchs of the Rockefeller University and David Baulcombe of the University of Cambridge

The conference also features topics at the intersection of science and society.

New trends in scientific policy in Europe related to big data is a topic of the Science & Society Round Table.
