VIB Conferences

To increase the visibility of our center and establish strong links with top cancer biologists and editors, CCB is a regular co-organizer of the VIB Conference. These conferences also provide students and researchers with the opportunity to meet the experts and to discuss their research directly with their peers and colleagues.

Also note that Several CCB PIs are involved in organizing international conferences like Keystone Symposia & Gordon Research Conferences, CCB Metabolism Mini-Symposium, etc.
