The FEBS–EMBO 2014 Conference will be a unique international event that brings together many leading researchers to discuss the latest scientific findings in the life sciences. Scientists from across the world will be able to attend a jointly organized conference that offers unparalleled scope for the entire range of the molecular life sciences.
The conference will also celebrate the 50th anniversaries of FEBS and EMBO and the 100th anniversary of the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
Israel Pecht, Secretary General of FEBS, commented: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome EMBO and the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology as partners for this life sciences conference that will take place in 2014. I believe the strengths of each organization will contribute to an outstanding event for all life scientists. It will also be an ideal opportunity to celebrate the achievements of all three organizations over the past decades.”
Maria Leptin, Director of EMBO, remarked: “High-calibre conferences where scientists of all ages have access to the very best speakers are an essential part of building a research community. Our partnership with FEBS and the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology for The FEBS–EMBO 2014 Conference will help to increase the impact of our efforts to create a research environment where scientists can achieve their best work.”
Frédéric Dardel, President of the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, added: “It is a privilege and an honour to be holding this special event for the life sciences in France and I look forward to welcoming the scientific community to Paris next year. We have the perfect partners and venue for this prestigious occasion.”
Further information about the joint conference will be made available at the 38th FEBS Congress in St Petersburg, Russia (6-11 July 2013) and The 5th EMBO Meeting in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (21-24 September 2013).
EMBO is an organization of more than 1500 leading researchers that promotes excellence in the life sciences. The major goals of the organization are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a European research environment where scientists can achieve their best work.

Founded in 1964, The Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) is one of the largest organizations in European life sciences, with nearly 40,000 members distributed among 43 countries across the continent and its immediate neighbours. As a charitable organization, FEBS promotes and supports the molecular life sciences in various ways – from offering advanced courses and different types of research fellowships to publishing journals.

International team of scientists develops new feedback method for optimizing the laser pulse shapes used in the control of chemical reactions
In many ways, traditional chemical synthesis is similar to cooking. To alter the final product, you can change the ingredients or their ratio, change the method of mixing ingredients, or change the temperature or pressure of the environment of the ingredients.
Like an accomplished chef, chemists have become very skilled ...
A genetic defect protects mice from infection with influenza viruses
A new study published in the scientific journal PLOS Pathogens points out that mice lacking a protein called Tmprss2 are no longer affected by certain flu viruses.
The discovery was made by researchers from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Braunschweig in collaboration with colleagues from Göttingen and ...
The Light: Global study gets underway with online user survey
Light has a fundamental impact on our sense of well-being and performance. In cooperation with Zumtobel, a supplier of lighting solutions, Fraunhofer IAO has launched a global user survey of lighting quality in offices. The objective is to identify the best lighting conditions for a variety of spaces and lighting ...
Quantum entanglement, a perplexing phenomenon of quantum mechanics that Albert Einstein once referred to as “spooky action at a distance,” could be even spookier than Einstein perceived.
Physicists at the University of Washington and Stony Brook University in New York believe the phenomenon might be intrinsically linked with wormholes, hypothetical features of space-time that in popular science fiction can provide a much-faster-than-light shortcut from one part of the universe to another.
But here’s the catch: One couldn’t actually ...
A star is formed when a large cloud of gas and dust condenses and eventually becomes so dense that it collapses into a ball of gas, where the pressure heats the matter, creating a glowing gas ball – a star is born.
New research from the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, shows that a young, newly formed star in the Milky Way had such an explosive growth, that it was initially about 100 times brighter than it is now. The results are published in the scientific journal, Astrophysical Journal Letters.
The young ...
