Annual BioCity Symposium is a series of meetings organized since 1991 by BioCity Turku organization and it has become the most important annual get-together in the fields of biosciences and molecular medicine in Turku. The symposium gathers together hundreds of participants each year and offers talks from cutting-edge international researchers.
This year’s program includes eleven talks from international scientists spiced up with short talks from Finnish researchers, and the list of speakers is outstanding. Keynote speaker of the Symposium is Sir Peter J. Ratcliffe who will give a talk about the hypoxia work which lead to his 2019 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine. Since the event is arranged together with InFLAMES Research Flagship several excellent immunologists are invited to give a talk, among which Professor Eugene Butcher from Stanford University, who will talk about vascular control of immune cell traffic. This year BioCity Symposium will include a panel discussion about the role of biotech in the development of new medicines, where Jeffrey Bluestone from Sonoma Biotherapeutics Inc. will discuss about the topic with the audience.
