Rome, 6-9 September 2022 NEW DATE

International hybrid Conference on

Oxygen Binding and Sensing Proteins


Announcement, February 15th 2022

Dear all,

we are glad to announce the O2BiP 2022 congress, 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 Department of Sciences of the University Roma Tre, which is located next to the splendid and famous St. Paul’s Basilica - Basilica Papale San Paolo fuori le mura.

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 2022 congress in Rome, September 6-9, 2022.

As you will see, registration fees have increased slightly for post-docs and seniors. This increase is linked to the Organizing and Scientific Committees's desire to ensure that the Conference takes place with certainty from 6 to 9 September 2022, regardless of the pandemic situation and personal needs. In fact, the entire conference, including the poster session, will be organized in a hybrid mode. However, the registration fee has been kept unchanged for PhD Students, to ensure the widest possible participation of young people.

The Call for abstracts and early-bird registration are already published on our congress website

Please save the dates and we look forward to seeing you all soon in Rome!
