The IMP Opening Conference, held 4 to 6 October 2017, was the scientific housewarming of the new IMP building. Current members, alumni and friends of the house came together to a research conference with an outstanding spirit.
Outstanding speakers formed the backbone of the IMP opening conference: recruited among alumni, past and present Scientific Advisory Board members and other friends of the IMP, their talks addressed topics such as immunology, cancer, epigenetics and gene regulation, development, neurobiology, as well as molecular and cell biology.
