With thirty days to go and almost 2500 registered participants, the final preparations for the FEBS-EMBO 2014 Conference are well underway.

The event, a joint venture between the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS), EMBO, and the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SFBBM), will take place from Saturday, 30 August to Thursday, 4 September at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France.

The FEBS-EMBO 2014 Conference is the largest meeting for the life sciences in Europe this year. It features more than one hundred lectures, workshops and symposia on established and emerging areas of research. The conference will celebrate the 50th anniversaries of FEBS and EMBO and the centennial of the SFBBM.
