Welcome to the prestigious 19th Annual SIBBM Seminar, a flagship event in the realm of Italian scientific gatherings. Our seminar has earned its reputation as one of the most successful scientific events in the country, consistently bringing together leading international and national speakers at the forefront of innovative molecular biology topics. This year, our theme is "The Time of Molecular Biology: Development, Homeostasis, and Aging".

The seminar will delve into captivating subjects, including RNA biology, from foundational science to cutting-edge therapies; the intricate world of epigenetic modifications in health and disease; the complexities of aging and senescence; and the promising domains of stem cells and organoids for both development and disease, with a joint session featuring the Associazione Biologia Cellulare e del Differenziamento (ABCD).

We extend a warm invitation to young scientists, encouraging active participation. Numerous abstracts will be selected for talks, and we are pleased to offer reduced registration fees for junior participants. In recognition of outstanding contributions, several prizes will be awarded, such as the esteemed SIBBM Riccardo Cortese prize for the best selected talk, the "Francesca Martini" prize from NAnA Onlus for the best poster on cancer research, and various poster prizes.

A special pre-meeting primarily dedicated to fellows, Ph.D. students and post-docs (within 3 years after Ph.D.) is scheduled from June 16th to 17th. This unique gathering aims to unite early-career investigators, fostering a supportive environment for the progression of their scientific journeys.

We sincerely hope that you will join us in large numbers. Your participation is vital in making this event a resounding success. See you there!
