“Youth and Progress in Biology”: XII International Scientific Conference of students and graduate students

Young scientists – students and graduate students who conduct research in biology, biomedicine and ecology participate in the XII International Scientific Conference “Youth and Progress in Biology”, which takes place at Lviv University during 19-21 April 2016. The conference is organized by the faculty of Biology of Lviv University and the Institute of biology and ecology of Pomeranian Academy in Slupsk (Poland).

According to the organizers, the conference aims to promote scientific communication to gifted young people, working for the development of biological science.

“Nature has given researchers great resources – materials for study, but despite its laws scientists have new challenges every time”, – said in his opening speech Hladyshevskyi Roman Vice Rector of Research.
