20th Euroconference on Apoptosis “From Death to Eternity” - 9th Training course on 'Concepts and Methods in Programmed Cell Death'

We are pleased to announce that on the special occasion of the 20th anniversary of its foundation, the 20th Euroconference on Apoptosis and the 9th Training course on 'Concepts and Methods in Programmed Cell Death' will be held in Rome (Italy) from September 14-17, 2012, at the conference centre "ANGELICUM", located in the archaeological heart of the "Eternal City" of Rome.
ECDO 2012 in Rome is the biggest and most important cell death research meeting hitherto organised in Italy.
