Iron takes center stage on the next GABBA symposium. Renowned immunologist Maria de Sousa is chairing this event, which will take place at i3S on June 16th.

The Basic and Clinical Research on Iron Biology Group will host at i3S the GABBA module on Iron Biology in which top scientists in the iron biology field discuss with the students their most recent advances. To close this edition of the GABBA Iron Biology module some experts will bring on stage examples of the importance of iron in the various scientific domains developed at i3S, namely the host-pathogen interaction, cancer research, neurobiology and human genetics. The group hopes that these topics may attract students and researchers all over i3S and therefore they invite all i3S researchers to this event on Friday 16th of June at the Auditorium Corino de Andrade.
