After the successful first edition, plus a hundred young scientists present their research on diseases such as cancer, malaria and Alzheimer’s
Madrid, June 10, 2015.
On 12th June the headquarters of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) in Madrid will host the II Symposium of Young Researchers from the Sociedad Española de Química Terapéutica (SEQT). Organized by a group of doctoral students from the Instituto de Química Médica of the CSIC and the University of Barcelona, the fundamental objective of this meeting is to enable students to master’s, doctoral or postdoctoral can meet, share experiences and disseminate their work research in a relaxed atmosphere that encourages participation.
The initiative, which is unprecedented in other disciplines, aims to demonstrate that, despite the difficulties of the spanish investigation at the present time, there is an active network of young scientists working to solve new challenges in the development of innovative products that serve synthesis therapeutic tools for the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s, malaria or cancer. So, this year 17 oral presentations and 60 posters with the research will be presented.
Among the invited researchers include Manuel Guzman, professor at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, who will talk about the therapeutic potential of the activation of cellular receptors, called cannabinoids, in diseases such as tumors or multiple sclerosis.
