Parallel sessions

In addition to plenary lectures and poster sessions, a core part of the FEBS 2023 scientific programme will be a range of 'symposia' offered in three parallel streams. Each symposium is expected to comprise talks from three invited leading researchers as well as two short presentations mainly selected from submitted abstracts, allowing a focused look at progress, approaches and challenges in key topics. 

The Scientific Programme Board has identified the following as the important and stimulating topics for coverage in the FEBS 2023 symposia:

  • Autophagy: physiology and pathology
  • Biotech solutions to current problems
  • Cancer and ageing
  • Cell death and inflammation
  • Cell metabolism and stress
  • Chemical biology
  • Climate change: biochemical CO2 fixation
  • Emerging technologies for the future
  • Gene expression / Epigenetics
  • Host–microbial interactions
  • Immunometabolism in cancer development and therapy
  • Innate immune pathogen sensing
  • Mitochondria in health and disease
  • Protein life cycle (I): ribosomes, folding, chaperones
  • Protein life cycle (II): localisation, dynamics, functioning
  • Protein life cycle (III): degradation
  • RNA biology
  • Supramolecular assemblies (I): metabolons, multienzyme complexes
  • Supramolecular assemblies (II): RNA–protein complexes, molecular machines
  • Supramolecular assemblies (III): signal transduction
  • The exposome and cancer
