Call for Abstracts: European CF Young Investigator Meeting 2019
November 4, 2018
The 13th European CF Young Investigator Meeting will take place at the Institute Pasteur in Paris (France) from February 27th to March 1st, 2019. This scientific meeting is organized by the European cystic fibrosis patients’ organizations together with the European Cystic Fibrosis Society. It aims at fostering interactions between young scientists in order to create a long-term collaborative European network of CF investigators. The meeting will cover all CF research fields, considering basic research and clinical research.
Forty young investigators (under 40 years old) will be selected by an international scientific committee to present their work on CF. They will be asked to give a 10-minutes talk and also to present their results on a poster for further discussion.
Leading scientists will moderate the different work sessions, including plenary sessions and roundtable discussions. Moreover, they will give overviews in microbiology, immunology, cell biology, gene therapy, and clinical issues in CF.
The scientific committee will reward the best presentation (talk + poster).
This meeting provides a unique opportunity for young scientists to train themselves and share experience.
Large time periods will be dedicated to networking.
There is no registration fee. Travel, housing, and meals will be covered by the organizers.
