Scientific Symposium at LABVOLUTION

LABVOLUTION 2019 will feature a new conference format focusing on topical issues in the molecular life sciences.

The scientific journal BIOspektrum, published by Springer Nature, will be joining forces with the Association for General and Applied Microbiology (VAAM), the Society for Toxicology (GT) and the Society for Genetics (GfG) to organize an exciting program at LABVOLUTION 2019 addressing topical scientific issues.

The program includes three presentation sessions with the following keynotes:

  • microbiological research
  • molecular cell biology
  • genome editing.

In the afternoon, participants will have hands-on opportunities to learn more about the methods and how they are actually applied in the laboratory. All symposium participants are invited to visit the company stands, where they can view and try out the latest in laboratory equipment, kits and techniques relating to the topics presented.

The organizers:

The Association for General and Applied Microbiology (VAAM) is Germany’s largest microbiological society for scientists from industry, universities and research institutions, with around 3,500 members. Its mission is to implement the results of microbiology research for the benefit of society and the environment.

The Society for Toxicology (GT) – part of the German Society for Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology (DGPT), which has approx. 2,500 members – is the leading body in Germany for advancing toxicological science, training toxicologists and applying toxicological findings in practice for the continuous improvement of human and animal health and their environment.

The Society for Genetics (GfG) is an association of scientists in universities, non-university research institutions, industry and public authorities who are involved in various aspects of genetics. It promotes scientific efforts across the entire field of genetics.

Published by Springer Nature, the scientific journal BIOspektrum is issued seven times a year and has a circulation of 14,982 copies. The journal provides an overview of the latest developments in the molecular biosciences.
