International Young Scientists Conference on Molecular and Cell Biology
Due to the growing concern of coronavirus outbreak we had to make the difficult decision of postponing our event. Our main concern is the health and well-being of everybody involved, so we believe we cannot in good conscience proceed with the original dates for the conference. Instead, we decided to push the dates to 10 - 11 September, 2020. We are currently contacting participants and speakers to make sure everybody is informed and to try and preserve our original lineup of amazing keynotes.
We hope everyone will still be able to attend the conference in September, we will keep you posted should any further changes occur.
About the conference
We would like to invite you to a two day international conference dedicated to PhD, Master and undergraduate students interested in molecular and cell biology. The meeting will be held on April 16th-17th, 2020 at the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw, Poland.
The International Young Scientists Conference seeks to create opportunities for early-stage scientists to present their research and experiences in science. We believe that the ability to talk about your work with similarly inclined people is crucial for self-development. Trying to address this, we decided to continue with Young Scientist Conference meeting and expand it by reaching out to the international scientific community.
We invite you to join us for a two day meeting during which we will have lectures given by five invited keynote speakers, talks by selected applicants and at least two poster sessions. Additionally, as a part of the conference, there will be a mentoring session where participants will be able to engage with prominent and established scientists in an informal setting.
Keynote lectures and participants’ presentations will be divided into five topics:
- Cell Biology
- Cancer & Ageing & Diseases
- Development & Stem Cell Biology
- Methods & Trends in Biology
- Structural Biology
As we all are aware of the current situation with coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, we would like to assure you that we are monitoring the situation and, if something changes, we will follow WHO regulations and instructions from National Sanitary Inspection. We will keep you updated.
Registration is closed.
Please be kindly informed that the conference is free of charge
Registration and abstract submission deadline: February 16, 2020
Chosen participants will be notified by: March 8, 2020
Prof. Christophe Lamaze is a Group Leader of Membrane Dynamics And Mechanics Of Intracellular Signaling Laboratory at The Institut Curie, France. His laboratory focuses on studying cell biology of membrane trafficking and mechanics, and its role in intracellular signaling. The group’s main interests are: the mechanical role of caveolae in signaling and pathophysiology, molecular control of JAK/STAT signaling by endosomal sorting of interferon receptors (IFN-Rs), and the role of membrane trafficking in cholesterol transcriptional homeostasis.

Prof. Anne Bertolotti is a group leader at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK. Her research experience has immensely contributed to our understanding of the cellular protein homeostasis pathways. Her group has developed several strategies to prevent the deposition of toxic protein aggregates in cells and is exploiting these for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
Her most recent work has led to the discoveries of strategy to inhibit one of the serine/threonine phosphatase which is a negative regulator of protein homeostasis. The revolutionary idea of targeting a phosphatase, previously believed to be undruggable, was implicated in reducing the misfolded protein accumulation in the cell. In the future this may help to find new pharmacological interventions for neurodegenerative diseases.

Prof. Patrick Cramer is a director of the Department of Molecular Biology of the Max Planck Institute of Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, and a honorary professor at the University of Göttingen.
Patrick Cramer is one of the most recognized scientists in the field of transcription in the world. His laboratory combines cutting edge structural biology approaches, functional genomics and computational biology to understand the expression and regulation of the eukaryotic genome. Cramer’s group also develops new methods for studying transcription, RNA metabolism and epigenetics.
Patrick Cramer has more than 12000 citation and H-index of 59. He has received many awards including Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize (2006), Ernst Jung Prize (2009), Feldberg Foundation Prize (2011) and the Federal Cross of Merit from the Federal Republic of Germany (2012). Cramer is member of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and the German Academy of Sciences (Leopoldina). Since 2016 Patrick Cramer chairs the Council of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL).
As a post-doc in Roger Kornberg’s laboratory he has determined an atomic crystal structure of RNA polymerase II, which encouraged scientific community to award Kornberg with the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 2006 for studies of the molecular basis of eukaryotic transcription.

Prof. Noam Kaplan is na Assistant Professor in Technion Israel Institute of Technology. He is a head of the Genome Structure & Function lab. Because genome is a highly complex and rigorously regulated structure, is group focuses on the connection between genome 3D structure and genetic information hidden there. His aim is to understand how chromatin structure mediates biological function in various biological systems and diseases. To achieve this goal they combine high-throughput methods, based on NGS, and computational analysis.
Recently his group has developed an improvement to the commonly used method Hi-C, what allowed assembling various genomes such as frog, mosquito and barley.
His work is widely acknowledged, as he has published his data in e.g. Nature, PLOS ONE and Nucleic Acid Research.
