Welcome

We are delighted to welcome all to the 5th International Congress in Translational Medicine which will take place online through a virtual platform. This Congress is organized within the framework of our International Master Program in Biomedical Sciences (IMBS) (see About Us). It will focus on the latest and exciting innovations in the area of biomedical research, including basic research advances and their uses to develop new therapies or medical procedures.

Our joint program between Universidad de Buenos Aires and Albert Ludwigs Universitat Freiburg is aimed to educate young students and professionals who become experts in their fields, improving their knowledge in scientific research with the excellency of being an UBA/ALU graduate.

On this special occasion we are commemorating the 200 years of Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA). All year the University has been proudly celebrating the non-stop high education given from Universidad de Buenos Aires.

This year's scientific program will include some of the latest developments and approaches in specific areas of Cellular & Molecular Biology, Pharmacology and Toxicology, Physiopathology, Oncology and Microbiology. Our Congress will also provide a great opportunity for IMBS and PhD students and young scientists to display their work at the poster session where the three most outstanding presentations will be awarded.

We look forward to sharing this online event with you from Buenos Aires.
