Meeting Announcement

It is our pleasure and honor to announce the International Workshop “Excellence in Learning and Teaching Biochemistry” dedicated to teachers and students who “love to learn and help others learn” Biochemistry (to paraphrase an enchanting statement of Judith Voet). Do join us for this lively and thought-provoking workshop which is scheduled on September 16-17, 2019 inside the Campus of Sapienza University of Rome. Sapienza was founded in 1303 A.D. and remains the largest university in Europe, with around 112,000 students and 8,000 operators including professors, employees and technicians. At Sapienza the future of Wisdom begins today from its past and from the contribution of all the components of the university community, in cooperation with all major learning and research institutions in the world, within an increasingly dynamic and complex global framework.

The Workshop is held under the auspices of FEBS, SIB (Italian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology), IUBMB, the Department of Biochemical Sciences “A. Rossi Fanelli” of Sapienza and the PhD Course in Biochemistry, in collaboration with the Department of Biomedical and Neuromotor Sciences of the University of Bologna, and with the contribution of our sponsor Zanichelli Editore S.p.A.

All sessions will be dedicated to modern and prominent teaching strategies to meet the needs of both students and teachers. A group of leading academic scientists will share their experiences and discuss the most recent trends as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the field of undergraduate education in Biochemistry.

Your presence is highly appreciated to help shape the Workshop through conversations among participants. Since there is a limited number of seats available, we recommend to register as soon as possible.

We are looking forward to meeting you here!
