CINBIO presents its VI Annual Meeting (July 2023). Organized by the CINBIO postdocs and with the support of the CINBIO Management Unit, the VI CINBIO Annual Meeting seeks to bring together researchers interested in chemistry, biology, medicine, physics, mathematics and information technology, being the CINBIO’s interdisciplinary nature.

We would like to reflect our multidisciplinary expertise, with international and national invited speakers that reflect the character of our Research Centre; experts from Cancer, Nanomaterials, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, Immunology, Chemical Synthesis, and other disciplines addressed by our centre.

We would like to open creative discussion about Novel Tools for the Medicine of the Future. Therefore, we encourage both academics and students to participate and take this opportunity to share and discuss your results.

LOCATION: Edificio ciencias experimentales, Campus Universitario de Vigo, Lagoas Marcosende, Vigo
