XV FISV Congress

Sapienza University of Rome, Italy

18-21 September 2018


I am pleased to announce the XV Congress of the Italian Federation of Life Sciences (FISV), which will take place from 18 to 21 September 2018 at the Sapienza University of Rome.

Fourteen Scientific Societies (AAI , ABCD, AGI, SIB, SIBBM, SIBESIBV, SICA, SIF, SIGA, SIMAG, SIMGBM, SIP MET, SIPaV), with a total of more than 7,000 researchers, are active members of our Federation. I would like to thank all the Scientific Societies which have contributed to organize what promises to be an exceptional scientific event for our Country and have defined an exciting program. The past editions of this meeting have all been very successful and this edition is expected to provide an efficient platform for scientific and interdisciplinary exchange at the forefront of the life sciences. Internationally renowned scientist from Italy and abroad will present their most recent data; in addition, the meeting will also allow several young Italian and foreign scientists to present their research in a highly stimulating scientific environment.

For this edition of the meeting, topics will range, just to mention some, from biological clocks to the emergence of archaic and modern humans, from epigenetic reprogramming to mechanisms at the basis of inflammation of disease, from oxidative stress in health and disease to genetic engineering in plants. Furthermore, a round table will take place on some of the most current aspects and societal implications of the Life Sciences.
