An exciting program of contemporary iron research will be presented at Bioiron 2015 in China and we hope you will be able to join us. Hangzhou is renowned for its beautiful scenery and is known to the Chinese as ‘Heaven on Earth’.

The program will begin with an Introductory Course that covers the following topics:

  • The chemistry of iron in biological systems
  • Anemia of cancer and inflammation
  • Diagnosing and treating iron disorders

The Core Program will consist of a range of plenary and concurrent sessions that focus on the following main areas:

  • Cardiac iron homeostasis (Special Symposium)
  • Iron, immunity and infection

The conference is the premier event of the International Bioiron Society and is the focus for the international community of scientists and clinicians who work on the basic biology, physiology and pathophysiology of iron. It will feature the very best speakers in the iron field from around the world.

 

The International Bioiron Society (IBIS) was founded to advance knowledge about the biological and medical roles of iron and the processes in which it participates with particular reference to those processes of medical and industrial importance. IBIS's specific objectives are to provide a forum for discussions, to promote research and its publication and advance public education on iron chemistry and biology as well as on disorders due to iron deprivation or excess
