6th CFGBC Symposium & FightingDrugFailure

6th CFGBC Symposium & FightingDrugFailure

From arrays to understanding diseases & Pharmacogenomics of Individual Drug Therapy

The 6th CFGBC Symposium "From arrays to understanding diseases" will be organized together with Summer school "Pharmacogenomics of Individual Drug Therapy" within Marie Curie Research Training Network FightingDrugFailure.

Joint event will take place on June 8-9, 2011 at Faculty of Medicine, University of Ljubljana, Korytkova 2, Ljubljana.


Joint meeting will cover topics on pharmacogenomics and various applications of bio-chips with a specific focus on gaining in-depth knowledge of diseases. Research activities of the members of the Slovenian Consortium for Bio-Chips and collaborating foreign institutions will be presented. Lectures and posters covering the topics of the project FightingDrugFailure will be presented by the leading researchers of the field and several students involved in the programme.

The official language of the symposium is English.


Marie Curie Research Training Networks, an initiative of the EU, provide training and research experiences for early stage researchers of any nationality by giving them the opportunity to spend up to three years in another country as part of an international, high-quality research project. These mobility training networks contribute to knowledge transfer through the promotion of multidisciplinary research and the interaction of researchers on all levels working within a specific project.

FightingDrugFailure, a Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) within the framework of life sciences, is coordinated out of Stuttgart, Germany, and focuses on Pharmacogenomics withthe overall goal of optimizing personalized treatments, with respect to the patients' genotype, to ensure maximum drug efficacy with minimal adverse effects. Within this program, 13 early stage researchers (ESRs) and 2 experienced researchers (ERs) from 9 different coutries are being trained at 5 academic and industry sites.


CFGBC and FDF members are invited to give a presentation (lecture or poster) about their research interests within the scope of Microarray research, Pharmacogenomics and Individual drug therapy at the Symposium. Younger researchers and Early Stage Researchers (FDF) are invited to present their research on posters.

The symposium is not limited to the members of the Slovenian Consortium for Bio-Chips; international collaborators of the Center are strongly encouraged to present their work.

Commercial partners of the Center are invited to present their solutions and also to financially participate in the organization of the symposium: see an invitation letter (also available in Slovene: vabilo sponzorjem).

Abstracts of oral presentations and posters will be published in a book of abstracts together with sponsor's advertisements. The books will be available to the participants on the day of the symposium. See books of abstracts from previous events:

All presenting authors are invited to submit short papers to the international journal Informatica Medica Slovenica (IMS). Prospective authors should send their contributions electronically to the Editor in Chief Assist.Prof. Gaj Vidmar, PhD. Contributions will be considered for publication in Volume 16, Issue 1. Submission deadline is May 3rd, 2011. Instructions for Authors for details.
