Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure and honor to invite you to participate in the IUBMB Focused Meeting / FEBS Workshop on “Crosstalk between Nucleus and Mitochondria in Human Disease” (CrossMitoNus) to be held from 19th to 22nd May 2020 in Seville, Spain. The event will take place at the Research Scientific Centre Isla de la Cartuja (cicCartuja).

CrossMitoNus focuses on the communication that exists between mitochondria and cell nucleus, first described as retrograde signaling between mitochondrial and nuclear genomes. Recently, mitochondrial factors have been emerged as response elements to cell nucleus performance. Thus, unraveling the whole connectivity between the biomolecules involved in all this regulatory mitochondria-nucleus crosstalk and its relation to cell fate and physiological state is nowadays a major challenge. Indeed, as a supra-disciplinary field, it demands collaborative efforts involving Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Structural Biology and Cancer Biology, and new approaches in which experimental and computational methods are used.

The Scientific Program is organized in Plenary Lectures, together with sessions containing Oral Short Communications selected from the submitted abstracts. In this regard, an effort to give preference to young researchers will be made. The program leaves enough time for fruitful and lively discussions, especially during the following sessions: 1-min Flash Presentations, Poster Party and Round Table. The singularity of CrossMitoNus are the activities Guided Poster Tour and Speakers´ Corner, which will be held during poster sessions and breaks.

CrossMitoNus will bring together about 100 PhD students and young postdocs, some of them will be awarded with grants offered by IUBMB, FEBS and Spanish National Societies, including Spanish Biophysical Society (SBE) and Spanish Groups of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (GERMN) and Chemical Biology (GEQB) from the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSEQ).

The Organizing Committee thanks FEBS for providing us with its FEBS-branded website to use for displaying content, as well as for registration and abstract handling.

In summary, IUBMB Focused Meeting / FEBS Workshop CrossMitoNus will provide you with an excellent opportunity for a rewarding scientific and personal experience, including exchanging ideas with colleagues and establishing new acquaintances.

Looking forward to seeing / welcoming you in Seville.

Best regards,
Irene Díaz-Moreno,
Chair of the Organizing Committee
