22nd International Symposium on
Chromaffin Cell Biology
21-25 January 2024
Ein Gedi Kibbutz Hotel, Dead Sea, Israel
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 22 International Symposium on Chromaffin Cell Biology, which will take place at the Ein Gedi Kibbutz Hotel,
Israel on January 21-25, 2024.
The 22 ISCCB will bring together a truly multidisciplinary cohort of scientific leaders and trainees from around the globe with a common interest in
research based in chromaffin cells and the physiological processes they regulate. Delegates attending this highly interactive conference include biophysicists
and engineers, biochemists, cell biologists and neuroscientists with an extraordinary breadth of technical expertise keen to discuss recent advances in
a variety of topics made possible through research and new technologies tested in these model cells. From single molecule imaging of proteins regulating
vesicle fusion to physiological analysis of sophisticated animal models of synaptopathies, research in chromaffin cells has been at the forefront of classical
discoveries in neuroscience. The 22 ISCCB speakers will also present topics related to chromaffin stem cells, hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis,
cancer, immunology, disorders, viral fusion and neurodegenerative diseases.
The ISCCB provides not only a forum to exchange research results, hypotheses, and ideas, but has also frequently resulted in new collaborations between
laboratories from different disciplines using complementary approaches. Many novel scientific ideas and technological innovations have emerged from past
meetings and joint projects have originated between new groups from different countries.
As always, the meeting aims to bring together young and established researchers from different disciplines to discuss the major topics of interest in an informal
atmosphere thereby encouraging the formation of interdisciplinary collaborations and larger team efforts. The support and mentoring of young scientists have
been one of the top priorities of the ISCCB and traditionally significant funds are set aside to cover travel expenses and provide affordable accommodations
for students, post-docs and early career investigators.
Once again, we hope that you will join us for an “elevating experience” ,400 meters below sea level, at the Dead Sea.
With our best regards
