Salamanca hosts the first Spanish version of ‘Young Life Scientist’s Symposium’.

The Institute of Fuctional and Genomic BIology (IBFG, joint centre of the University of Salamanca and CSIC) hosted international specialists today in the first Spanish version of the ‘Young Life Scientist’s Symposium’, which involves a series of conferences that are held one day only and is organised by and for doctorate and young post doctorate students.

In this case, the day’s topic was ‘Cell Cycle: The Challenge to coordinate genome stability and morphogenesis’ which focused on three fundamental aspects related to cells: the cell cycle, the stability of the genome, and morphogenesis. The first aspect refers to the growth, development and reproduction of cells, which affects all organisms. The second refers to genome instabilities that result in gene mutation, which is related to diseases such as cancer. Finally, morphogenesis refers to the biological process through which organisms develop.

The study of these processes was the focus of the day’s events, which was supported by the Biochemical Society and opened by the Vice Rector of Research and Technology Transfer of the University of Salamanca, Juan Manuel Corchado. In addition to young and promising scientists, the event included the presence of three highly regarded researchers: Marcos Malumbres (CNIO, Madrid), Marco Foiani (IFOM Institute, Milán) and Anne Spang (Biozentrum, University of Basel).
