Luca Braga, Functional Cell Biology Group Leader and ICGEB Alumnus at the 26th Annual Symposium in Trieste

ICGEB 26th Annual Symposium at the Trieste MIB School of Management

This year marks the 26th ICGEB Symposium: the annual event bringing together all our students, scientists and researchers to present their latest results, network, and interact across all disciplines.

The Twenty-sixth Symposium of ICGEB took place between 30 June and 1 July, 2021 at the Trieste MIB School of Management, in Trieste. The two-day “academic retreat”, with ICGEB PhD students chairing the sessions, covered the following areas of research: Viral biology, Biotechnology, Signalling, Mechanobiology, Gene and Cell Therapy, RNA and Protein Biology, Cancer and Mechanisms of disease.

With over thirty talks by speakers from 25 nationalities, the symposium represents a unique opportunity for researchers, scientists and technical experts who work in the Trieste laboratories to network and to become familiar with the many ongoing research projects.

The event takes the form of an international conference, thus making it possible for students to resume live interaction with their colleagues and peers in a semi-formal setting, and incentivize young minds to further their research interests.

The traditional get-together party, marking the end of the official academic year, took place after the second day of the symposium in the form of an informal aperitif. The #ICGEBFunRun will resume for our next editions.
