PhasAGE-VIB International Conference: a retroperspective

The II PhasAGE International Conference held from 11 to 13 December was a success! 
With the theme of “Biomolecular condensates in biology and disease”, the conference was staged by Peter Tompa and his research team in Brussels. It was an almost two-day event held in a closed and informal environment to better promote discussion among participants and to cluster new opportunities for future collaborations.

The conference was attended by 80 participants from 18 countries with 2 plenary talks, 11 invited scientific talks, 11 selected short talks and 23 poster presentations featuring the most recent advances and current trends in liquid-liquid phase separation and biomolecular condensation in physiology, aging, and disease. The closed nature of the meeting encouraged almost all speakers to share exciting unpublished data highlighting the most recent high-impact achievements in the field.

The conference program also included 3 career development talks outlining biotech aspects of LLPS research assisting young researchers and junior postdocs in their future career choices in this field. The full conference program can be consulted here


The III PhasAGE International Conference will take place in Porto on 18-20 October 2023 at IBMC/i3S. Save the date and come join us!
