CNCCS (National Library of Chemical Compounds and Screening Centre) is a joint venture between Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Istituto Superiore di Sanità and IRBM Science Park to create a European Bank of Molecular Compounds.
In support of research in the field of molecular biology, CNCCS organizes every year in Rome an International Conference where world renowned scientists, representatives of the pharmaceutical sector and important representatives of Italian and European institutions meet for discussion and exchange of ideas and proposals.
The three editions of the “Bioeconomy Rome” took place on November 2011 – 2012 and 2013.
The first day encompasses lectures from distinguished world-renowned personalities of the academic scientific sector, research foundations and pharmaceutical companies and is held in the IRBM’s Science Park Auditorium in Pomezia.
The scientific meetings underline the need for improving the life of patients affected by neurodegenerative diseases through new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches that could modify the course of the disease or reduce its progression.
It has been found that this goal can be achieved through a translational research and development paradigm focused on the modulation of those cellular mechanisms which are linked to neurodegenerative diseases pathology at clinical level.
The second day. six awards of 10,000$ each are awarded to six young researchers for innovative research carried out in the field of translational medicine. The prizes are announced by distinguished guests from the scientific community, such as the Nobel Prize Tim Hunt, together with members of Italian and European institutions.
