Welcome

We would like to welcome you to the First Conference of the South America Chapter of CSSI, which is to be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Montevideo, Uruguay (11-14 March 2014).

The South American Chapter was recently created due to the exponential increase of research in the field of Heat Shock Proteins and Cell Stress in Latin America. This First Conference of the South America Chapter of CSSI is thus an historical occasion, not to be missed!

The event will initiate at two prestigious Uruguayan research institutions, the Institut Pasteur de Montevideo and the Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de la República, Montevideo, with introductory lectures in the field of Heat Shock Proteins and Cell Stress, to then move to the Sheraton Montevideo Hotel for the last three days.

The conference focuses on Cell Stress and HSPs and aims to foster intense collaboration between specialists in this area. At the same time, it offers the younger generation of South American scientists an excellent opportunity to meet locally some of current top experts from across the globe. The topics covered are:
