European Iron Club Meeting

Next event: Feb 08, 2018

The first day of the European Iron club meeting 2018 will consist in a “Masterclass” entitled “Iron principles and iron disorders” aimed to an general audience of clinicians and scientists interested in the biology and role of iron in human health.

The European Iron Club exists to foster communication and collaboration among biomedical scientists and clinicians whose work is concerned with iron. Europe-based research groups cover a wide variety of iron-related topics, ranging from iron biochemistry to the genetics of iron metabolism and the treatment of iron-associated human diseases.

The traditional ethos of the European Iron Club is to generate a relaxed, open environment to encourage the development of young researchers and the forging of worthwhile links between iron scientists.

The European Iron Club generally hosts meetings on an annual basis, which consist of a mixture of scientific presentations and informal discussion and social gatherings. Exceptions are those years when the International BioIron Society holds a congress in a European location; at such BioIron meetings, the EIC stages a cocktail party.

The first day of the European Iron club meeting 2018 will consist in a “Masterclass” entitled “Iron principles and iron disorders” aimed to an general audience of clinicians and scientists interested in the biology and role of iron in human health. We are honored to be able to host some of the most renowned researchers in iron biology worldwide.

The aim of the masterclass are to showcase the role of iron in human physiology from the molecular level to the metabolic level, in an approach to bring together novel research findings and practices, both from fundamental research as well as well as from the clinical-health perspective, with the aim to present an overview of the recent advances in the management and understanding of disorders in iron metabolism.
