Villa Vigoni "Cell Death and Disease Meetings"
During the last 20 to 30 years research of cell death mechanisms has been influenced enormously by European scientists. Therefore, there is a great number of conferences which focus on apoptosis and cell death mechanisms. They are however mainly pertaining to basic research. In contrast to the “big conferences” the Villa Vigoni Cell Death Meetings try to create a familiar, seminar-based atmosphere with approximately 30 participants. Their aim is to have mutual exchange of scientific research results and to continue common projects.
These cell death meetings at Villa Vigoni take place for many years.
