Welcome from the Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to The 4th ISFMS: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Druggability of Proteins, which will be held in the wonderful city of Florence, Italy, in the period September 6–9, 2022. The conference will be hosted at the University of Florence, in the biomedical campus nearby the main city hospital, which is easily accessible from the airport, train station or city center. Apart the high quality science which will be presented during the event, our fantastic location will afford the possibility to visit the city in which Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Galileo Galilei (to mention just a few personalities) lived and created some of their unique artistic and scientific masterpieces. The friendly and peaceful atmosphere of our city will surely favor nice scientific interactions and the possibility to establish interesting contacts with scientists from all over the world in a collaborative manner.

We look forward to seeing you in Florence.

Elevated protein dynamics and druggability
Bio
Research in Professor Łukasz Jaremko's Molecular Diagnostics and Drug Discovery (MD3) group focuses on atomic-level insight into essential and topical questions from biochemistry and medicine, such as, e.g., the primary molecular bases of cancer, including leukaemia and lung cancer (Nature, 2021). The team is actively working in the field of targeted drug design and discovery, using structure-dynamics analysis to search for small molecules (ligands) that interact specifically with the disease-associated proteins. Identified lead compounds are then engineered to increase their binding and, thus therapeutic potency against cancer (Nature Chem Biol, 2021). Biomolecular nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is the crucial experimental technique used and refined (J Chem Phys B, 2015; Angewandte Chem, 2016; J Biomol NMR, 2018, 2020) to tackle challenging macromolecular assemblies (Nature Chem Biol, 2013, 2021; Science, 2014; Nature Communications, 2016, 2017; Nucleic Acids Res, 2019; Am J Hum Genetics, 2019; Chemical Science, 2020; eLife, 2021; Nature 2021; Mol. Cell 2021). These NMR-based structural studies are then combined with molecular and enzymatic assays as well as other state-of-the-art biophysical techniques such as X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy, circular dichroism and molecular dynamics simulations to get further insights into the complex biological systems essential for human health. Professor Łukasz Jaremko has published over 90 peer-reviewed papers in international journals covering original research of both methods development and application to address and monitor the pivotal biological, biomedical and environmental phenomena.

Venue, Travel and Accommodation

Florence

Florence is a city in central Italy and the capital of the Tuscany region. During the Middle Ages, Florence was a centre of European trade and finance, and one of the wealthiest cities of that era.

The city attracts millions of tourists each year, and UNESCO declared the Historic Center of Florence a World Heritage Site in 1982. The city is noted for its culture, Renaissance art and architecture and monuments. The city also boasts numerous museums and art galleries, such as the Uffizi Gallery and the Palazzo Pitti, and still influences the fields of art, culture and politics to this day. Due to Florence's artistic and architectural heritage, Forbes has ranked it as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

For more information visit http://www.firenzeturismo.it/en/.

Venue

The conference will take place in the biomedical campus of University of Florence, Viale G. Morgagni.


Best way to travel here

Florence may be reached directly by plane. The airport has connections with many of the main transport hubs in Europe (Rome, Milan, Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich) and a tram service connects the airport to the city centre. By train, it is a 90-minute trip from Rome or Milan where the largest airports in Italy are located. Pisa airport is just one hour from Florence by train and there are many flights into this city too.

The biomedical campus is 15 min by tram (T1) from the main train station which is in the city centre. Florence is a relatively small city (around 300 000 residents) and the public transportation (trams, trains, buses) is efficient and inexpensive.

Accommodation

There are huge numbers of tourists visiting Florence and Tuscany each year, in every season. For this reason, the accommodation should be booked in advance. There is a large number of hotels, B&Bs, Airbnbs or apartments which can be booked online by using booking.com or similar services. The best location to choose would be around the Santa Maria Novella train station or city centre, where the journey to the conference site will take roughly 15 minutes.

Beware of Unauthorized Registration and Hotel Solicitations
Note that Sciforum is the only official registration platform to register to ISFMS2022, and that we are not associated with any hotel agency. While other hotel resellers and travel agencies may contact you with offers for your trip, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with ISFMS2022 or Sciforum. Beware that entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies can have costly consequences.

Event Awards

The Sponsor, IJMS, offers two Best Posters Awards and one Best Oral Presentation award to our conference participants, which will be announced during the Award Ceremony on the last day of the conference.

The Awards
Best Poster Award (300€)

Number of Awards Available: 2

The two Best Posters will be selected by all conference attendees through secret vote.
Best Oral Presentation Award (500€)

Number of Awards Available: 1

The Best Oral Presentation will be selected by the Scientific Committee after evaluation of all selected talks presented during the conference
