33rd BioCity Symposium registration is now open!

This year, BioCity Symposium is arranged on-site in Mauno Koivisto Centre, BioCity on 29–30 August 2024, with the title Unleashing the power of metabolism. Registration is open until Friday, 16 August 2024.

Annual BioCity Symposium is a series of meetings organized since 1991 by BioCity Turku organization and it has become the most important annual get-together in the fields of biosciences and molecular medicine in Turku. The symposium gathers together hundreds of participants each year and offers talks from cutting-edge international researchers.

This year BioCity Symposium will cover metabolism at many levels, from cellular to organismal. Particular focus will be on the interplay of metabolism with other physiological systems such as immune system, gut microbiome, and how such interplay may lead to disease.

– This year’s program includes eleven talks from international scientists spiced up with short talks from Finnish researchers, and the list of speakers is outstanding. The keynote speaker is Craig B. Thompson, past CEO of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, who will tell us about cancer metabolism, says professor Klaus Elenius, the Scientific Director of BioCity Turku.
