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.
Speakers will be:
