The IIS La Fe holds its Scientific Conferences during the month of June

The PhD Day will be attended by the biologist and geneticist from the Andalusian Centre for Developmental Biology, Miguel Ángel Moreno.

This year's keynote speaker at the Scientific Event will be Ricard Martínez, director of the Microsoft Chair on Privacy and Digital Transformation.

The La Fe Health Research Institute (IIS La Fe) is holding its Scientific Conference during the month of June, specifically on 13 and 14 June. The aim of these two sessions is to make visible and promote the scientific activity carried out at the institution, to highlight the figure of the pre-doctoral students with the presentation of their work and to establish a meeting point for all the research centre's staff beyond the laboratories and offices.

This new format, which debuted last year, allows the central event of the institute to be divided into two sessions: the 2nd edition of PhD Day IIS La Fe (13/06) and the Scientific Act (14/06). In addition, the common thread of these two sessions is the PhD Day awards ceremony that takes place during the Scientific Act.   


PhD Day is a more festive first day, aimed at an academic audience, in which pre-doctoral researchers working at IIS La Fe present their talks and posters in competition. A total of 67 abstracts were registered for the two types of participation, divided into 27 oral communications and 40 posters.

In addition, this year the conference has been sponsored by Miguel Ángel Moreno, biologist and geneticist at the Andalusian Centre for Developmental Biology. After the opening of the conference, he will give a plenary session entitled 'CRISPR-Cas Optimisations and their applications to understand early embryonic development and human diseases'.

Throughout Tuesday 13, the scientific committee will be responsible for evaluating all the papers presented in different sessions and, from 18:00 hours onwards, will meet to deliberate.


As for the Scientific Act, this is the institution's annual conference in which a balance of the activity carried out during the previous year is made. Thus, after the opening and presentation of the scientific direction by Dr. Guillermo Sanz, the awards ceremony of the 2nd edition of PhD Day will take place.

The day will conclude with a keynote speech by this year's guest of honour, Ricard Martínez, director of the Microsoft Chair on Privacy and Digital Transformation.
