We invite you to participate to the Second European Amphibian Club to be held 26th-29th June 2019, in Lutherstadt-Wittenberg, Germany.

The conference poster

The aims of the second conference on amphibians are to foster a European network for scientists using amphibians in molecular biology, to improve the perception of amphibians as a model with particular benefit in translational medicine, to initiate and consolidate the interest of young scientists to work with amphibians.

In June 2017, the first European Amphibian Club (amphiclub2017.sciencesconf.org) was held in Rennes, France. More than 100 participants from 13 different European countries as well as a minor number of participants from outside Europe met to discuss new findings, which were based on the use of amphibians as model organisms for modern molecular biology. The unique feature of this new conference series is that all aspects of amphibian-based science will be covered. Scientists working on cell cycle control will meet stem cell and developmental biologists to discuss questions of signaling pathways which play an important role in cancer and translational medicine but the same scientists will also become sensitized by important environmental aspects. The broad expertise of all participants will spark new ideas in specialized fields to approach scientific problems from new directions. Both international Xenopus Centers will be presenters on the proposed conference in 2019.

The conference will attract and promote young scientists. In each session, we will have open slots for 10 min talks of designated postdocs and six 2min oral poster presentations. Organized meetings between young and advanced scientists should provide an easily accessible platform to meet and find young interested scientists and support their commitment to the field of modern amphibian biology.
