The "Advances in Biomedical Research V” conference will cover the latest discoveries across the spectrum of biomedical research - from cancer biology, cystic fibrosis, immunology and technological advances in biomedicine; to neurobiology, translational studies and applications of artificial intelligence in drug discovery.
The conference will bring together some of the best minds in biomedical research from leading institutions all over the world. It will provide an international platform to share expertise, foster collaborations, stay updated with recent trends and advances in the field of molecular and cell biology of disease.
The conference is jointly organized by the Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences and the University of Toronto.
We warmly welcome you and look forward to your attendance!
