Congress of Nobel Laureates organized by the Mayo Clinic and St. Catherine Specialty Hospital in partnership with American Academy for Forensic Sciences

International Society for Applied Biological Sciences (ISABS), Mayo Clinic and St. Catherine Hospital in partnership with American Academy for Forensic Sciences are organizing “The Twelfth ISABS Conference on Forensic and Anthropologic Genetics and Mayo Clinic Lectures in Individualized Medicine” (, to be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, June 22 - 27, 2022 . The Twelfth ISABS conference is considered to be one of the most important scientific events in biomedicine in 2022, and the place from where we would like to envision the power and advances of personalized medicine that will create significant value for the healthcare system. Also, the latest scientific breakthroughs and discoveries in the fields of forensic and anthropological genetics will be presented.

More than 60 invited speakers from the Mayo Clinic, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Texas, University of Minnesota, University of Pennsylvania, Max-Planck-Institute, The Francis Crick Institute, The Penn State University, University of Uppsala, Erasmus MC University, Arizona State University, University of Virginia, University of Florida, etc., as well as 500 participants will attend the Conference. Three Nobel Lectures will be given by the Nobel Laureates: Aaron Ciechanover (Ruth and Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine and Research Institute, The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel), Sir Richard John Roberts (New England Biolabs Inc., Ipswich, Massachusetts, USA), Thomas Südhof (Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, USA).
