EWIC 2019

October 24–25  •  New York, NY

The East-to-West Iron Club (EWIC) is an annual meeting for researchers interested in iron biology and translational research. The centerpiece of the meeting—held annually since 1975—is a one-day series of lively discussions that facilitate the exchange of ideas and data. No slides or overheads are presented at the discussion sessions, and all shared data are considered confidential. Postdoctoral research fellows and graduate students are particularly encouraged to attend and also present a poster. EWIC 2019 will take place at the New York Blood Center in New York City. EWIC 2019 will be hosted by Francesca Vinchi (New York Blood Center) and chaired by Yelena Ginzburg (Icahn School of Medicine at Mt Sinai).
