Register for BioIron 2019

Submit Your Abstract For BioIron 2019 Today!
Dear members of the BioIron community,  
We would like to remind you that the abstract submission deadline for the 8th Congress of the International BioIron Society in Heidelberg from May 5-9, 2019 is fast approaching.  

Abstract submissions will close on the January 31, 2019. We will not be able to accept abstracts after this date. 

As we have intentionally limited the number of invited lectures, there is a great opportunity for abstracts to be selected for oral presentations in the plenary and parallel sessions based on scientific quality. Thus, we want to encourage principle investigators and more junior researchers alike to submit abstracts.  

Additionally, junior investigators who are members of the BioIron Society are able to  apply for fellowships, including registration waivers and travel fellowships. These fellowship opportunities will be available during the registration/abstract submission process. 

Please submit your abstracts covering exciting advances in iron biology – from the cell to the system, from very basic to the clinical, from mammalian to model organisms and microbial species. 
Prior to the biennial BioIron 2019 meeting, the BioIron Society has also organized, a 3-day EMBL Course on Techniques for Studying Iron in Health and Disease

Eighteen students will be selected from the list of qualified applicants and for at least nine of them the registration fees will be waived (reimbursed). The course will be held at EMBL training laboratories on May 2 – 4, 2019. All activities, materials and meals will be covered by the registration fee. Affordable accommodations will also be available. We encourage candidates to apply as early as possible.  
Looking forward to welcoming you all!
