MUNICH, Sept. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - The "Scientific Oktoberfest" will be this
year's meeting point for some of the internationally most distinguished
researchers in the field of Chemical Biology. The so-called "CIPSM Fest
of Chemical Biology" will be held from the 15th to the 16th of September in the Department of Chemistry of the
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) München.
At the two-day conference, 400 researchers from around the world will
discuss state-of-the art research in various fields spanning from
chemistry to biology and present their latest results in the fight
against diseases like cancer or bacterial infections.
