2nd FEBS Advanced Lecture Course on Oncometabolism
After the success of the first edition – described by several participants as “the best course ever!!” – we are delighted to invite you to the second edition of the “FEBS Advanced Lecture Course on Oncometabolism: From Conceptual Knowledge to Clinical Applications”, which will be held in Luso, Portugal, on 1-6 September, 2019.
This 5-day course will covered a wide range of established and emerging topics in oncometabolism, from basic concepts, to recent breakthroughs, advanced techniques, and clinical applications. Students, postdoctoral and senior scientists all benefited from a combination of tutorials and lectures given by top international experts in this exciting and fast growing field of research.
This second edition maintained all features that made the first edition so acclaimed, such as outstanding speakers, a generous number of meeting bursaries for abstract-submitting early-career scientists, a small size, a participant versus speaker rate of 5:1, and extensive opportunities for networking with other participants, invited speakers, and sponsors (namely during leisurely meals and the two trips included in the social programme). Importantly, the programme of this second edition provided participants with even more opportunities for presenting and discussing their own work: all poster sessions will now be preceded by flash poster presentations, given by up to 25 participants, and up to 10 other participants will be selected to give short talks. Once again, there were Best Short Talk and Best Poster Prizes. Among other novel features are a “Speed Dating with the Experts” session, which was an excellent opportunity to ask questions and establish new professional relationships, and the possibility to co-chair a session with an invited speaker.
