Message from the Organizers

Dear Colleagues,

the 27 th Wilhelm Bernhard Workshop on the Cell Nucleus meeting venue had to be changed due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The International and the Organizing committees jointly made a decision to hold the meeting in Prague, Czech Republic on 19-23 June 2023. The location was selected due to its relative proximity to Ukraine as a sign of our solidarity with Ukrainian scientists and all people of Ukraine.

The scientific program will be similar to the original meeting, while adding to specialized workshops, co-organizes with the  COST Action EpiLipidNET (CA 19105) and the  Society for Histochemistry. We also applied for a grant from the  Visegrad Fund, and these measures will support the attendance of many young scientists.

The rich social program of the Workshop will provide a relaxing and free environment for communication not only science, but all current events influencing our research and life, all in summery historical Prague. 

We look forward to welcoming you in Prague in 2023.

On behalf of the organizers,

Pavel Hozak, Chair
Yegor Vassetzky, Vice-Chair
Roman Lesyk, Vice-Chair
