The Eighth International Workshop in South Korea

Meeting Date: June 1-4, 2010

Place: Daemyung Resort in Seorak, South Korea

The 2010 International Workshop on the Molecular Biology of Stress Responses was held in South Korea. The workshop was organized by members of the newly formed Korean Cell Stress Society (KCSS) in association with the CSSI. The meeting venue was the Daemyung Resort in Seorak, a particularly beautiful area of South Korea.  There were approximately 100 participants.
A meeting report will be published in Cell Stress & Chaperones soon.  Two image galleries from the workshop are shown below. One gallery shows award winners and the other shows a selection of images from the mountain venue and the meeting.  The photographers were Robert M. Tanguay (RMT) and Harm Kampinga (HK).
