Comparative genome analysis suggests that vertebrates and retroviruses have co-existed for tens of millions of years. It is thus unsurprising that a degree of co-evolution has taken place, resulting in the development of specific defence mechanisms by the host, and means to overcome such defences by the virus. Understanding such natural anti-viral genes might suggest novel means of combating retroviral infection.
Lithuania is no longer an isolated country with research limited to international level. With governmental prioritization and EU support, Life Science position in the country has never been stronger and its role in international community is increasing rapidly. Our conference aims to facilitate Life Science expansion by developing international networks between Lithuanian researchers.
A modern scientist no longer fits the image of an isolated genius generating individual breakthroughs, but one who's success depends on networking and usually more than one kind. Lithuania's political situation puts life science at the top of its priorities and the push for commercialization has never been stronger. Use the conference to take your idea forward and find support for your IP and business development.
Modern Life Sciences are moving in the direction of interdisciplinarity, where techniques are constantly being adapted from other disciplines to provide more robust data, as well as trustworthy analytical methods. The conference is an ideal opportunity to meet researchers from diverse fields.
No one is omniscient and no one makes it on their own. The organizers of this conference aim to build a diverse community of different but equally motivated young scientists. A community where they can simultaneously teach and learn from one another, share their experience, expand their scientific horizons or simply appreciate science together in a fun way.
