Sponsoring PRION 2014

On behalf of the PRION 2014 Organizing Committee and the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), we are delighted to invite you to support and attend PRION 2014, the world’s largest research congress on prion and protein misfolding diseases. The event will be held in the beautiful city of Trieste, Italy from 27 to 30 May 2014. The world’s leading experts, highly esteemed researchers, postdoctoral fellows, students, clinicians and policy makers from the prion field will gather to exchange their latest findings and shape the future of prion research together.


The congress will be titled "PRIONS: EPIGENETICS and NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES — Shaping the future of prion research" and will feature scientific talks by many distinguished scholars including Nobel prize winners Stanley B. Prusiner and Eric R. Kandel.


The Organizing Committee is already working to create an exceptional brand and enhancing networking opportunities for corporate and institutional supporters. The congress will be an outstanding occasion to connect with your existing network and clientele, and develop new relations both in Italy and around the world. We anticipate around 500 delegates, with about 50 per cent coming from outside Europe. If you are interested in sponsoring the event please This email address is being protected from spambots.
