The conference will take place the Molecular Biotechnology Center, a new building of the University of Torino that has been inaugurated in 2006 and is located only minutes from the city center and the main train station (therefore close to most of Torino’s hotels).

By the end of 2010, a new subway line will connect the MBC to Torino’s train stations, city center, and attractions.
