Welcome to O2BiP 2020
The O2BiP 2020 congress will be the 21st edition of the series of biannual meetings that have been organized on the topic of oxygen-binding and sensing proteins (O2BiP).
This edition will be held in Rome at the Roma Tre University, September 1-4, 2020.
Following the spirit of previous O2BiP editions, the meeting aims to focus on recent advances on the relationships between structure, dynamics, and function of globins, and gas binding and sensing related heme-proteins, covering all levels of organization from molecular to cellular to systemic and “in vivo” models. The meeting will bring together researchers at all stages of their careers actively working in the fields of biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology, physiology, genetics, and evolutionary biology. Accordingly, our aim is to provide a forum for the presentation of recent advances and progresses in these fields, to bring together complementary research areas, and to catalyze existing and new scientific cooperation among teams with distinct expertise.
With this goal, we are pleased to invite you to attend the O2BiP 2020 congress, which will be held in the Department of Sciences of the Roma Tre University, which is located next to the splendid and famous St. Paul’s Basilica - Basilica Papale San Paolo fuori le mura.
We look forward to seeing you in Rome,
The Organizing and the Scientific Committee
