The Third International Symposium on Heat Shock Proteins in Biology and Medicine

The Third International Symposium on Heat Shock Proteins in Biology and Medicine was held in Berlin, Germany, May 23-25, 2006. These symposia are smaller and more closely focused on medical research and application than the large international congresses sponsored by the CSSI such as the upcoming congress in Budapest in 2007. The first of these symposia was in Woods Hole, MA, USA, in 2000. The second symposium was combined with the inaugural CSSI Congress in Quebec in 2003. The third symposium in this series was the recent meeting in Berlin described here and at this meeting, Drs. Calderwood and Asea announced to the delight of the crowd their intention to have a fourth meeting back in Woods Hole in 2008. The meeting was chaired by Stuart K. Calderwood, Alexzander Asea, founders of this series, and the chair of the Local Organizing Committee, Valeria Milani. Approximately 80 participants enjoyed the surroundings of the famous Charité University Campus Virchow. This is where Rudolf Virchow and Robert Koch worked, along other famous German scientists. The meeting was one of the most rich yet held in translational research potential for the cellular stress response field. The symposium photograph of participants is shown below:
