Welcome to the 57th NBS Contact Meeting 2021 January 21 – 24, 2021

Welcome to the 57th Norwegian Biochemical Society contact meeting to be held at Clarion Hotel The Edge in Tromsø January 21-24, 2021. By attending you will meet in person many interesting internationally reputed speakers covering topics ranging from prebiotic processes, microbiology to structural biology, cell biology and immunology. We expect many interesting discussions and views on covid 19! As a special tribute to the young researchers striving to make a scientific career in Norway we have incorporated a special session on “HOW TO SUCCEED IN SCIENCE IN NORWAY”, where a panel of researchers will talk about their own experiences followed by a discussion. Due to the covid 19 situation there will be ample supply of antibac and we have reserved extended space to prevent too close contact during social gathering, and viewing of posters and exhibitions. In the extraordinary case of a new wave of covid 19 infections in Norway, we will postpone the meeting, and not keep a virtual conference. Per of today there are only local outbreaks in Norway due to loosening of travel restrictions, and given that these are taken care of, there is nothing to prevent the Tromsø contact meeting from becoming a reality. A facebook page is under preparation. Within a month the registration will be opened. Looking forward to seeing you all in Tromsø next year for a real contact meeting!
