Happy 2023 from the President!
In 2022 we held our first in-person conference since 2019. This event in Porto was very much appreciated by the participants.
After the ESB 2022, the new Council has started to work on the various actions needed for the preparation of the ESB 2023 in relation with the local organizers (perspective talks,…) and on new actions (a new award for early career researcher, a new template for the newsletters, a new design for the ESB website,…).
We are happy to announce that the new website design is online! This is the result of the tremendous work of Barry Kaye the ESB webmaster, in relation with the Council.
Please visit it here.
We hope to see you in Maastricht for ESB 2023 (see last information below). In the meantime, you can contribute to the Journal Club and the research topic related to the ESB2022 conference in Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology (see below).
On behalf of the Council, I wish you all the best in your professional activities and personal life.
David Mitton, ESB President

TELL US YOUR VIEWS! There is still time to complete the Survey of the ESB!
Please follow this LINK, it takes less than 5 minutes and it helps the Council to improve the management of the society!
It is very important for us to get your view on the ESB congress and what support the society can provide to our members!
There are also important questions to understand your interest in chairing/participating in Working Groups and participating in a new Mentoring scheme. So please complete it and ask your team members and colleagues to do the same.
It is a great opportunity to tell us what you think so that we can improve the management of the ESB!

The ESB 2022 congress in Porto was attended by more than 80 ESB-ITA members and two ESB-ITA members were awarded: Monika Colombo from Politecnico di Milano was awarded with the Best Doctoral Thesis Award and Zimi Sawacha from University of Padova. Moreover, during the ESB Council election, Enrico Dall’Ara was confirmed and Bernardo Innocenti was elected and, together with Michele Conti, enforcing thus the contribution of the Italian chapter to the ESB community.
