Leaders of Molecular Life Science in the FEBS Congress in Jerusalem

Over 1,600 molecular life scientists from over 34 countries, gathered in Jerusalem from September 10-14 for the 2017 Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) Congress. The prestigious annual conference, was brought to Israel by Professor Azem Abdussalam and the Israeli Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology with support from the Jerusalem Conventions & Visitors Bureau (JCVB), which operates under the Jerusalem Development Authority (JDA).

The 2017 FEBS Congress, entitled “From molecules to cells and back”, covered the entire spectrum of molecular life sciences with symposia addressing topics like cancer biology, chromatin structure and epigenetic modifications, molecular neuroscience, mechanisms for protein homeostasis, medicinal chemistry, metabolomics and signaling, molecular machines in action, protein degradation, signaling across membranes: receptors, channels and transporters, systems biology and structural computational biology.

The participants benefited from some of the leading scientists and researchers in this field and include: Nobel laureate Robert J. Lefkowitz (Duke University), Patrick Cramer (Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen), Carol Robinson (University of Oxford), Marcelo Rubinstein (University of Buenos Aires), Jonathan Weissman (University of California) and Feng Zhang (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

Each year the FEBS Congress, recognizes the outstanding achievements of women in life sciences through the FEBS /EMBO Women in Science Award, with the recipient announced at the annual congress. This year’s awardee, Ottoline Leyser (Sainsbury Laboratory, Cambridge University, UK), and 2016 awardee Fiona Watt (King’s College, UK) both presented on the plenary lectures at the Congress.
