Conference

We would like to draw your attention to the 2nd International Conference “Peroxisome Formation, Function and Metabolism”, which will take place from June 20 – June 22, 2016 at the EMBL Hamburg (DESY site), Germany.

The conference will be organized by the European Research & Training Network PERFUME (www.itn-perfume.eu), which includes a number of leading research groups from different parts of Europe. The conference will cover the following topics in four sessions:
1. Peroxisome biogenesis / de novo formation and fission
2. Peroxisomes in human health and disease
3. Plant/fungal peroxisomes
4. Novel peroxisomal functions and proteins

Presentations will be given by 8 invited internationally leading external speakers and several internal speakers of the PERFUME network, both at the level of principle investigators and fellows supported by PERFUME. In addition we will select participants to give an oral presentation based on submitted abstracts.

In addition to the scientific meeting, there will be great opportunities to visit the Hanse city of Hamburg. Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany with a great tradition in overseas trade. The city is well known for its historic center, its waterfront, the old harbor and a vibrant cruise center, shopping opportunities, and wonderful sea sides and beaches.

The deadline for abstract submission is May 17, 2016.

We very much hope to see you at what we believe will be an exciting meeting for researchers working on the various aspects of peroxisome biology. Please feel free to pass this email on to anyone whom you know that may be interested in this conference.

Looking forward to seeing you in Hamburg this summer!
