EWIC 2018

November 15–16  •  Dania Beach, FL

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 2018 will take place at the Ocean Campus of Nova Southeastern University, Dana Beach, Florida. EWIC 2018 will be hosted by Kyle Bauckman (Nova Southeastern University) and chaired by Bryan Mackenzie (University of Cincinnati).


Registration is free. Please register online.
