The congress is expected to become a point of reference for Biomedical Research and Innovation, transmitting scientific perspective and awareness among scientists, public bodies, enterprises and the society.

Conference on advances in molecular biology by young researchers abroad


The National Center of Biotechnology of CSIC celebrates in December 19 in Madrid the 21st edition of its traditional day “Advances in molecular biology by young researchers abroad”. This invitation goes to all Spanish postdoctoral scientists working abroad and coming home for Christmas.

The conference will end with a round table which will discuss the various funding possibilities within the Spanish scientific system .

Attendance is free for everybody. Everyone is invited, this includes: researchers from the universities, other centers of CSIC, as CNIO centers, CNIC, CIEMAT, ISCIII, INIA, hospitals and biotechnology companies.

How to participate as a speaker? (as listeners, we are all invited)

1. – You must meet the basic requirement of being postdoctoral and work outside Spain .

2 . – Prepare the following information:

  • title (short, very short!) of your communication
  • e- mail (to be included in the program)
  • name of the main researcher
  • workplace
  • if you think your work is important enough to be presented at the joint session, indicate so specifically and briefly explains why, including, where appropriate, a reference to a work published or in press.
  • in the case that you had to travel within Spain, indicate from where and approximate the kilometers to Madrid.

3 . – Submit your application by Friday, November 30, 2013, to any of the following e-mails indicating the profile in which you are most comfortable

For further information, you can contact the Spanish Society of Immunology at gestionSEI@inmunologia.org

Call for Letters of Intent: Clinic and Laboratory Integration Program (CLIP)


The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) is requesting letters of intent for its Clinic and Laboratory Integration Program (CLIP). CRI offers CLIP grants to qualified scientists who are working to explore clinically relevant questions aimed at improving the effectiveness of cancer immunotherapies. The grant will support basic, pre-clinical, and translational research, which will provide information that can be directly applied to optimizing cancer immunotherapy in the clinic.

  • LOI Deadline: November 1, 2013
  • Funding: Up to $100,000 per year for two years

Inquiries may be directed to grants@cancerresearch.org

Second International Conference on Clinical & Cellular Immunology


In October 15-17, the Immunology Summit 2013 will be celebrated at the Hampton Inn Tropicana, Las Vegas, USA. The theme will be “Disseminating the New Trends in Immunology”. The Organizing Committee of Immunology Summit-2013 has worked closely with the OMICS Group Conference organizers to bring together researchers from the United States and countries world-wide to discuss in open forum significant recent research advances in Immunology.

To accomplish this goal, they developed 15 separate tracks for this meeting which cover the relevant topics in basic molecular and cellular immunology as well as clinical immunology. These include the broad areas of cytokine and inflammation research, autoimmunity and the major disease states, cancer, infection and immunodeficiency syndromes, as well as reproductive immunology, transplantation, and allergy.

3rd Scientific BIOCAPS seminar: Bio-inspired Materials for Tissue Engineering


The Biomedical Research Institute of Vigo (IBIV), within the framework of the European project BIOCAPS (Capacities Biomedical Support Programme), organized the First Seminar on Bio-inspired Materials for Tissue Engineering, to be held next October 25, 2013 at the School of Industrial Engineering, Campus of the University of Vigo.

This seminar aims to deepen the strategies currently applied in the research of bio-inspired materials oriented Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine given the pressing need to provide solutions for the replacement, repair and regeneration of tissues and organs. These lines of research are looking primarily to promote the restoration of the functionality of a living tissue by the design of advanced biomaterials, bio-inspired nanostructures and fabrication of scaffolds organic or inorganic with specific morphologies and structures, to combine with cell’s own patient or animal model experimentation.

The initiative will feature the participation of experts of high relevance and aims to provide a broad perspective on the progress in this field, along with the search for meeting points, to provide solutions for the future of medicine and improve the quality of life.

Registration is free http://webs.uvigo.es/ibivigo/ibiv/biocaps-seminarios/mbit/form/inscripcion.php
