Dear Friends and Collegues,

ABC2001, the 3rd biannual FEBS Advanced Lecture Course, will cover all
aspects of ABC protein function, both in normal and cancer cells, as
well as their prominent roles in human genetic diseases. Leading
scientists from academia and industry will discuss the latest about ABC
genes from bacteria, fungi, plants, parasites and humans.

A maximum of 120 students/postdocs and 60 regular participants will be
selected based on submitted abstracts. 25 FEBS Youth Travel Fellowships
for students are available. Applications for YTF grants should include a
short CV and two letters of recommendation and must be sent to the
Organizer. The registration fees, which include shuttle transportation,
full board and lodging for 7 nights at the venue are 640,- Euro for
students/postdoctoral fellows and 820,- Euro for all other participants.

SYMPOSIUM 1
Bacterial ABC proteins in uptake and efflux

SYMPOSIUM 2
ABC proteins from plants, fungi and parasites

SYMPOSIUM 3
Mechanism, substrates and functions of P-gps and MRPs

SYMPOSIUM 4
Clinical and pharmacological implications of MDR

SYMPOSIA 5 and 6
Human ABC proteins and genetic disease


DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS AND ABSTRACT SUBMISSION
November 15, 2000
