EWIC 2016

October 27–28  •  Philadelphia, PA

The East-to-West Iron Club (EWIC) is an annual meeting for researchers interested in iron biology and translational research. The centerpiece of the meeting—held annually since 1975—is a one-day series of lively discussions that facilitate the exchange of ideas and data. No slides or overheads are presented at the discussion sessions, and all shared data are considered confidential. Postdoctoral research fellows and graduate students are particularly encouraged to attend and also present a poster. EWIC 2016 will be hosted by Stefano Rivella, PhD, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and University of Pennsylvania.


Registration is free. Please register online so that the appropriate arrangements can be made to accommodate everyone. No abstract submission is necessary.
