Dear Colleagues, Dear Young Scientists,

We are very proud and honored to invite you to the "FEBS Workshop on Molecular Life Sciences: Training Tomorrow's Scientists" organized in Izmir on 5-7 September 2018.

This workshop was meticulously planned to fulfill the needs of  our country's molecular life sciences community, with the experience gained from FEBS Education Committee workshops organized in various European countries over the past decade and TBS training events, and is supported by FEBS (Federation of European Biochemical Societies), IUBMB (International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) and Turkish Biochemical Society (TBS). The workshop is hosted by İzmir University of Economics and includes distinguished faculty members / teaching assistants of Dokuz Eylül, Ege and Gazi University in the Organizing Committee. The main aim of the workshop is to bring together the trainees and educators involved in the molecular life sciences, and discuss the most up-to-date concepts, practices and applications of this field.

The first two days will cover the current aspects of education in molecular life sciences. The main topics are "Innovation in Education", "Electronic Learning", "Post-graduate Education" and "Education and Research". On the third day, topics that may be especially useful for young scientists in their careers and research will be covered interactively. The program includes presentations, group work, panel discussions and poster/oral presentation sessions.

The educator staff of our workshop consists of 20 specialist faculty members from the FEBS Education Committee and various European countries. Our target audience is faculty members, teaching assistants, PhD/MSc students and all others involved with education in the molecular life sciences.

Abstracts submitted to the workshop will be published in the Special Issue of the Turkish Biochemistry Journal (expanded SCI). Scholarships will be given to the graduate students with accepted poster presentations..

We look forward to welcoming you to İzmir on 5-7 September 2018!

Wishing for a highly interactive workshop!
Sincerely yours,

On behalf of the Workshop Organizing Committee,
