Welcome to the Global Questions in Advanced Biology Conference

The Organising Committee is pleased to invite you to participate in this Conference, which will be an excellent opportunity to think about the current frontiers in biological sciences and the newly appeared challenges in this domain after the conceptual and technological revolution of recent years.

Since the different disciplines in biological sciences have definitely crossed their boundaries, specialization is no longer a hallmark for the researchers involved. The transversality of new techniques has helped all biological disciplines to benefit from concepts that, until recently, belonged to a highly specialized community of researchers. However, it is unusual to find conferences which facilitate the dialogue between the many disciplines in biological sciences. Therefore, the main aim of this conference, planned to celebrate the centenary of the Catalan Society of Biology, is to promote the interaction among the many disciplines included in biology (e.g. neuroscience, molecular biology, ecology,etc) to enrich our knowledge through different and contrasting points of view.

With this aim in mind, we have organised an attractive International Conference in which particularly young scientists are encouraged to show their research and discuss the results obtained with internationally reputed scientists. This will be done in a critical thinking atmosphere about global and challenging questions in Biology.

 Activities:

· Plenary sessions: by internationally recognized speakers
