GRC and GRS 2023

Dear Polyamigos, Dearest Friends,

I remind you all, senior and young scientists, that there are only a few days left to register to participate in the GRC and GRS 2023. Both Chairs, Andrè and Luca, did a hard and good job organizing this meeting. The sessions are exciting and the program is really interesting. Therefore, I cordially invite those who have not yet done so to register NOW!

Announcement Awards

I urge young scientists to participate in GRC and GRS as it is an opportunity to have another exciting meeting, with the aim to increase the interest of our research field.
Furthermore, the International Polyamines Foundation ONLUS will assign "number 4 Awards of $ 773,00 each", to young researchers who will present original work, with application development, in the field of Polyamines, during the GRC/GRS 2023.

Membership Dues

On 24 April 2024, the Board of Directors of the International Polyamines Foundation ETS-ONLUS (IPFE-O) met and resolved that the payment of the "annual membership fee" to IPFE-O, for the year 2024, by the members of the polyamine group must be done no later than July 31st, 2024.

Membership fees will be used to support future Foundation activities including international conferences in the field of polyamines and their role in diseases, normal physiology, plants, and microorganisms and to support a new generation of scientists in the field of polyamines. It was unanimously decided to request an annual membership fee, as described in the table below, for supporting members who share the institutional aims outlined in the Statutes of the newly organized IPFE-O. Membership fees will only be used to support future polyamine scientific conferences and young investigators in the field of polyamines. Additional donations intended for the same uses from those interested in supporting the Foundation will be welcome. Future members of the Board of Directors and the Scientific Committee of the IPFE-O will be elected from the Foundation’s supporting members who have paid their annual membership fee. Payment of membership fees and additional donations can be made by credit card or wire transfer on the International Polyamines Foundation ETS-ONLUS website.
