GBM Fall Conference 2022
"Molecular Basis of Life"
Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf
September 14 - 16, 2022
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
we’d like to invite you to participate in the Fall Conference of the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) "Molecular Basis of Life" at the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, which will take place in September 14th – 16th, 2022.
The conference is organized by Prof. Dr. Claus Seidel (Heinrich Heine University) in collaboration with several GBM study groups.
This meeting is intended to promote lively discussions at the crossroads of various fields of biochemistry such as biophysics, structural biology, bioenergetics, cell biology, bioinformatics and others.
We look forward to your visit and an inspiring meeting!
