Extending over a 4-day period and offering formal top-quality invited lectures, poster sessions and ample time for interaction among participants, these meetings are reminiscent of the Gordon Research Conferences and Keystone Symposia, and are highly acclaimed for their scientific quality. The St Odile Symposium represents an opportunity to meet with experts from across Europe and beyond, to discuss the latest research in this fascinating area.
 
The St Odile Symposium on Hormones and Cell Regulation has been held annually, for 43 years, in Alsace, France (just 30 km from Strasbourg), in an old abbey founded more than 13 centuries ago. In this beautiful setting, high in the Vosges mountain range with an extraordinary panoramic view of the Alsatian plain, these meetings address a different theme each year, with past meetings covering subjects including G-Protein Coupled Receptors, Receptor Tyrosine Kinases and Cancer Signalling.
