30th FEBS Congress - 9th IUBMB Conference Closed
The Congress had 2646 participants from 89 countries.
It is just a short notice, a detailed report will follow soon.
The Conference was run by more than hundred high-school student who were called "Yellow angels" during the Conference because they wore a yellow T-shirt with a "YOUR HELP" sign. These students did not only navigate and help the participants at the Congress but also stoped them and asked about their research.
Each evening almost twenty of our best speakers waited for the young scientists of the Congress at the Café le Comedien for an informal discussion. We thank all of our speakers (including Peter Agre, Nobel Laureate) for this novel and excellent opportunity!
