We regret to inform you that due to the COVID-19 the 4th ICGEB Meeting on Human Papillomaviruses: From Bench to Clinic, that is planned to take place in Zagreb, Croatia from 25th to 28th November 2020 is postponed for 2021. We will inform you about the new date in due time.

This Meeting is co-organized by the Ruđer Bošković Institute and ICGEB, with the aim of bringing together experts from basic research and from the clinic, to help promote awareness about various aspects of HPVs and related diseases and how they might be prevented at early stages.

We plan to gather regional researchers and clinicians who will have a chance to interact with some of the world’s renowned HPV experts to help in sharing ideas and research, creating new collaborations, and strengthening already-existing ones. This meeting is therefore multidisciplinary and aims to provide basic scientists and clinicians with all the latest developments in their respective areas of expertise. A major focus will be also to foster international collaborations amongst groups working on HPVs and their diseases within Central and Eastern Europe.

A number of abstracts will be selected by the Organizing and Scientific Committee for oral presentations.  Poster presentations by all participants are also encouraged.

We look forward to seeing you in Zagreb!

On behalf of the Organizing and Scientific Committee,
Vjekoslav Tomaić and Lawrence Banks
