International Young Investigator Session

SFB35 is proud to host the "young investigator’s session” which is jointly organized by SFB35 and the two sister consortia in Germany (SFB807, speaker: Robert Tampé) and Switzerland (TransCure; speaker: Mattias Hediger). This session follows up on the successful last year’s meeting in St. Moritz (Bioparadigms meeting) and brings together 12 young speakers working in the three transporter projects. They will briefly present their work and also be present during the poster session:

Manuel Anderegg, CH

Andreas Anderluh, AT

Andrea Chicca, CH

It will be the 7th symposium under the auspices of the Special Research Program SFB35 of the Austrian Science Fund/FWF. We are convinced that this annual SFB-meeting will again offer you a great program with the latest results in the field of transmembrane transport. We are accepting no more than 160 participants for this meeting anticipating an intimate environment for vivid interactions.


+++ No admission/registration fees for this symposium, admittance is essentially free. +++


SFB35 "Transmembrane Transporters in Health and Disease" is a network of excellence that brings together research groups located in Austria (in Vienna and Linz) to jointly follow a distinct research program; SFB35 has been initiated to understand the molecular mechanisms of transport activity of both neurotransmitter transporters as well as ABC-transporters/efflux pumps: from structural biology and cell biology to clinics and the drug action - and all the way back from clinical paradigm to basic research.

The regular scientific program will be a variety of opportunities to share scientific knowledge through state-of-the-art plenary lectures, lecture sessions and a poster session. To foster our young scientific colleagues, we will award a number of travel grants.

Vienna, currently one of the most exciting cities in the world of highest standards of living, provides the perfect background for this SFB meeting in 2014.

As we are aware of the fact that we cannot reach every colleague please forward this message to all your colleagues that might be interested to visit.

Come and join us at our SFB symposium 2014. Don’t miss the chance to meet and get in contact with transporter professionals from all over the world.

Sincere Regards,

Harald Sitte; Speaker SFB35
Michael Freissmuth; Deputy Speaker SFB35
