The annual BioCity Symposium is in August 19th–20th with the title Cancer – Breaking Bad. This series of meetings organized since 1991 has become the most important annual get-together in the fields of bioscience and molecular medicine in Turku.

BioCity Turku is a community of life science and molecular medicine researchers and students in Turku region. One of its main events is the yearly BioCity Symposium which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. The symposium gathers together hundreds of participants each year and offers talks from cutting-edge international researchers and this year the event is organized in collaboration with Finnish Cancer Institute. The aim is to arrange a hybrid event with some of the audience and invited speakers present in Turku as well as having virtual participants following the broadcasted program. However if necessary BioCity Symposium can be flipped into fully virtual event even at short notice.

Researchers are encouraged to participate to the poster exhibition and submit a poster abstract latest 11.6.2018. Based on the submitted abstracts at least six researchers are invited to give a short talk in the symposium. If the poster sessions need to be cancelled the researchers who have sent abstracts will be informed at the beginning of August. Last day to register to the symposium is 6.8.2018 and the event is free of charge.
