In 1998, we organized the first specialized meeting in the field of signal transduction and gene expression in Luxembourg. This type of meeting was originally thought to teach doctoral students of the molecular and cellular biology master training program of the University of Nancy I (France).
Since then, more than 5000 fundamental, clinical and industrial researchers were gathering in Luxembourg for eight different meetings in order to discuss therapeutic applications in the field of signal transduction, transcription and translation related to novel therapeutic applications. These meetings allow new insights into this rapidly moving field.
As in 2011, our 2014 meeting will be held under the auspices of the European Research Institute for Integrated Cellular Pathology. We will publish two special numbers based on the meetings contributions in Biochemical Pharmacology and in Journal of Cancer Prevention.
The conference will focus on novel advances in the field of metabolic pathways related to disease mechanisms and corresponding innovative therapies. Conferences will document recent advances in this topic including neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, cancer and ageing.
Welcome to Luxembourg!
