“Scientific Oktoberfest” Draws the Worldwide Leading Researchers in the Field of Chemical Biology to Munich
MUNICH, September 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –
The “Scientific Oktoberfest” will be this year’s meeting point for some
of the internationally most distinguished researchers in the field of
Chemical Biology. The so-called “CIPSM Fest of Chemical Biology” will be
held from the 15th to the 16th of September in the Department of Chemistry
of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat (LMU) Muenchen.
At the two-day conference, 400 researchers from around the world will
discuss state-of-the art research in various fields spanning from chemistry
to biology and present their latest results in the fight against diseases
like cancer or bacterial infections.
Speakers will be:
