Chemical biology researchers to meet at Scientific Oktoberfest in München

The "Scientific Oktoberfest" will be this year's meeting point for some of the internationally most distinguished researchers in the field of Chemical Biology. The so-called "CIPSM Fest of Chemical Biology" will be held from the 15th to the 16th of September in the Department of Chemistry of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) München.

At the two-day conference, 400 researchers from around the world will discuss state-of-the art research in various fields spanning from chemistry to biology and present their latest results in the fight against diseases like cancer or bacterial infections.
