2nd FEBS Advanced Lecture Course on Oncometabolism, 1-6 September, 2019, Luso, Portugal

Dear Colleague,

We are delighted to invite the members of your scientific Society 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. As such, we would appreciate if you could announce this course through your Society´s mailing list.

Following the success of its first edition, described by several participants as “the best course ever!!”,  the “2nd FEBS Advanced Lecture Course on Oncometabolism: From Conceptual Knowledge to Clinical Applications” will cover a wide range of topics, from basic knowledge to clinical applications. Although the focus of the course is on oncometabolism, there will also be lectures on other areas of cancer research, as well as lectures on metabolic regulation, metabolism imaging and metabolomics. In addition, there will be tutorials on fluorescence microscopy, statistics and modelling. By combining tutorials with lectures on the latest developments in the field, it will benefit both young and experienced scientists.

This 2nd edition maintains all features that made the 1st edition so acclaimed, such as outstanding speakers, a generous number of meeting bursaries for abstract-submitting early-career scientists, a small size (limited to 100 participants), 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 2nd edition provides participants with even more opportunities for presenting and discussing their own work: all poster sessions will be preceded by flash poster presentations, and some participants will be invited to give short talks. Among other novel features are a “Speed Dating with the Experts” session, which will be an excellent opportunity to ask questions and establish new professional relationships, and the possibility to co-chair a session with an invited speaker. It will be held in the thermal town of Luso, Portugal, on the hillside of the Buçaco mountain range.
We are looking forward to personally welcoming members of your Society in Luso to participate in this exciting course!
