Dear Young Scientists,

Following the success of our previous conferences, it is our great pleasure to invite you to attend Seasonal School on “Secretion in Health and Disease: Neurological Disorders and Diabetes” which will take place 1-9 May, 2017 at Ilia State University and Ivane Beritashvili Center of Experimental Biomedicine, Tbilisi, Georgia.

New and interesting data is still being been accumulated regarding the mechanisms of cell secretion and relationship between secretion disorders and the development of different pathologies. New technical approaches continue to be developed and it is about time for the scientists to discuss these issues, to learn from each other, to exchange ideas and to benefit from one another’s expertise. This is the main mission of the School and the scientific program is designed to talk about the most important steps of the process of secretion.

In the frame of Seasonal School twenty young scientists: master students, PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and young researchers from different universities and scientific organizations of Georgia will learn (i) the mechanisms of cell secretion and (ii) the interconnections between secretion disorders and the development of various pathologies; (iii) will get the knowledge about some of the most relevant and modern scientific methods that are largely used for the investigation of cell secretion, (iv) will study electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy techniques – high-informative approaches, suitable for the examination of ultrathin and nanoscale level of cell secretion.

We would like to encourage the participants to contribute to the cell secretion research. We look forward to welcoming you at our School!
