The 12th Central and Eastern European Proteomic Conference
the 39th Anniversary of the Institute of Cellular Biology and Pathology
Advances in proteomics and progress in precision medicine
October 24-26, 2018, Bucharest, Romania
Central and Eastern European Proteomic (CEEP) organisation and the host institute welcome you to our 12th Conference, which will be held in Bucharest, Romania, from 24th to 26th of October 2018. The event will be dedicated to the 39th Anniversary of the Institute of Cellular Biology and Pathology N. Simionescu, founded by Nicolae and Maya Simionescu, prestigious scientific personalities in life science.
Each year, the CEEPC attracts delegates from Europe and around the world who return for the mixture of ‘cutting-edge’ proteomics and networking, thus propagating this series of Conferences. We are expecting you in Bucharest and hope you will join us to share your knowledge and expertise on the advancements in the field of Proteomics as well as enjoy our fascinating capital city, Bucharest, a metropolis full of energy and dynamism. We have also put together a special social program which is not to be missed!
The goal of CEEPC is to promote ‘state-of-the-art’ research in all types of proteomic fields, providing a scholarly forum where a whole plethora of proteomic disciplines are discussed: human clinical proteomics, diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers and drug discovery; proteomics in animal and veterinary sciences; regenerative and reparative medicine, stem cells, gene therapy, tissue engineering; plant proteomics and environment; bio-informatics in proteomics; nanobioproteomics.
Credo: Cell and Molecular Biology for the Benefit of Human Health
The Institute of Cellular Biology and Pathology “N. Simionescu” functions under the auspices of the Romanian Academy. The idea of a Romanian research center for cell biology and pathology dates back in 1970, when Professors Nicolae and Maya Simionescu (co-founders of the Institute) at the invitation of George Emil Palade, Nobel Prize Laureate, were working at Rockefeller University, New York, USA. After nine years, the Institute opened officially (1979) and after about 10 years of activity became a member institution of the UNESCO Molecular Cell Biology Network (1990), Center of Excellence of the Romanian Academy (2000) and was selected by competition as Centre of Excellence of the European Community (2000).
- To uncover the patho-biochemical alterations occurring in the heart and blood vessels that lead to atherosclerosis, diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome;
- To translate the knowledge from "bench to bedside" for the benefit of patients; prevention, early diagnosis, better therapeutic control, and ultimately cure of diseases.
- Biomedical Research - Cellular and molecular biology and patho-biochemistry of the cardiovascular system;
- Teaching and Education - Master and PhD programs, specialization, post-university training courses;
- Promotion of modern Cell Biology and Pathology in Romania;

There will be different sessions for poster presentations during the event. A special committee will interrogate and discuss your findings depicted in the poster, so we ask you kindly to be present and respond to any queries the committee delegates may have.
A prize will be awarded for the “Best 12th CEEPC Poster” during the Closing Session of the event.
Poster Board Specifications
The available poster boards are A0 portrait format style.
Bucharest is the capital and largest city of Romania. It dates back from 1459 and became the capital of the state in 1862. From then on, Bucharest grew slowly but surely in the cultural, industrial and financial center it is today. The metropolitan area of Bucharest has a population of almost 2.3 million inhabitants.
Bucharest is located in the southeast part of Romania and is characterized by an architectural mixture of neo-classical, Bauhaus, art-deco and modern designs, specific to its most influential time periods (from interbelic to the communist, post-communist and contemporary era).
The city awaits you with a lot of historical and architectural landmarks, from one of the largest buildings in the world (The Palace of Parliament, a fantastic tribute to dictatorial megalomania), to national symbols of art and culture (National Art Museum, Romanian Athenaeum, National History Museum, Museum of the Romanian Peasant, etc.). Also, hidden throughout the city center, a lot of graceful art nouveau villas and trendy restaurants linger for your discovery and culinary delight.
