Call for Abstracts: The 8th European CF Young Investigator Meeting will take place in Paris (France) from February 19th to 21st 2014.

Dear Colleague,

The 8th European CF Young Investigator Meeting will take place in Paris (France) from February 19th to 21st 2014. This scientific meeting is organized by the European cystic fibrosis patients’ organizations together with the European Cystic Fibrosis Society. It aims at fostering interactions between young scientists in order to create a long-term collaborative European network of CF investigators. The meeting will cover all CF research fields, considering basic research and clinical research.

Forty young investigators (under 35 years old) will be selected by an international scientific committee to present their work on CF. They will be asked to give a 10 minutes’ talk and to present their results on a poster for further discussion. Senior scientists will moderate the different work sessions, including plenary sessions and roundtable discussions. Large time periods will be dedicated to networking. The scientific committee will reward the best presentation (talk + poster). This meeting provides a unique opportunity for young scientists to train themselves and share experience. Moreover, leading scientists will give overviews in microbiology, immunology, cell biology, gene therapy, and clinical issues in CF.

There is no registration fee. Travelling, housing and meals will be covered by the organizers.
The meeting is sponsored by Gilead Sciences.

Due to your involvement in CF research, we strongly recommend young investigators from your laboratory or hospital to apply for this meeting, which is a major regular event in the CF scientific community.

For application, please return the given abstract form to Virginie Jaunet ( by November 4th 2013. Acceptance will be notified at December 19th 2013. Further information about the meeting will be provided to selected young investigators.  Link to Abstract Form
