EWIC 2017

October 25–26  •  Cincinnati, OH

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 2017 will be hosted by Bryan Mackenzie at the University of Cincinnati.


Registration is free. Please register by using the online registration form. Upon your arrival, please check in or register at the registration desk. See the Meeting Location page for meeting rooms, parking, area map, and floor plan.
