Podarcis muralis COMMUNITY MEETING

From 16 Oct 2017 until 17 Oct 2017 - October 16 - 17 | CIBIO-InBIO, Vairão Campus, Portugal
Podarcis muralis COMMUNITY MEETING

On October 16 and 17 2017 CIBIO-InBIO will host the Podarcis muralis community meeting, which will bring together researchers from all over Europe working on this important model organism. The goals of this meeting will be sharing recent research news, consolidating ongoing collaborations, and defining future collaborative funding and research strategies.

This meeting will begin by a series of scientific seminars that will be held in the auditorium on October 16 and that will be open to the entire CIBIO-InBIO community. CIBIO-InBIO members are encouraged to attend and participate in the discussion.
