NovoNordisk Bioscience Conference 2014

Activity: Academic and Industrial eventsConference, workshop or symposium


The 6th conference in the Copenhagen Bioscience Conferences was called ”PTMs in Cell Signaling”. A string of the world’s top scientists in the field of protein research were headlining a programme that included lectures on ”clinical proteomics”, ”chromatin biology”, ”DNA damage signaling”, ”cell cycle”, ”disease pathways” and ”signaling systems and networks”. The title of the conference was the same as at the 2nd conference in the Copenhagen Bioscience Conferences-series, but this conference featured different speakers and topics. The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research at the University of Copenhagen and the Foundation were co-organizing the conference. The conference, which was open to 175 participants, was held 14-18 September 2014 at Favrholm, just north of Copenhagen. The conference was for researchers at all levels. All attendees (from PhD fellows to senior professors) were expected to present a poster during the conference, with prizes being awarded for the best poster by a postdoctoral fellow to Marjorie L. Fournier, IGBMC, France, and the best poster by a PhD fellow to Maxim A.X. Tollenaere, NNF Center for Protein Research, Denmark. The conference’s social programme included various cultural elements and a dinner in Copenhagen. The overall goal of the Copenhagen Bioscience Conferences is to promote international awareness about Copenhagen as a beacon of research within biomedicine and biotechnology and to give participants new inspiration and knowledge they can use to improve their research in the future.
