CMB Congress 2004, October 11
 
Nobel prize winners in Poitiers
 

 
From October 7th through October 12th 2005, Poitiers will be hosting the 4th international congress of the highly prestigious scientific review Cellular and Molecular Biology. No less than 3000 select guests are expected in the Vienne department. The students in the Physiology Engineering Master’s are readying the event with painstaking assiduity.

One year away from the 4th congress of the review known as CMB, the relevant figures are dizzying. According to the latest informative elements possessed by Sylvain Lesueur, president of the ProGPhy association, no less than 13 Nobel prize winners have assured the organizers of their presence. And seven others should likewise be embarking on the journey to Poitou… If these forecasts are confirmed, no other congress shall ever have brought together as many éminences grises by square meter – a record broken!

It must be added that the event is anything but trifling. Founded in 1960, the review Cellular and Molecular Biology now figures among the most prestigious publications of the world. The articles it has had put into print are considered to be genuine references. Vice president of the Physiology Engineering Master’s, Jean-Michel Maixent is president of the association at the French echelon. It is partially on account of him that some 3000 doctors, researchers and students shall be present at the Palais des Congrès of the Futuroscope from October 7th through October 12th 2005.

A full-scale enterprise

The ProGPhy association was thus entrusted with the organization of this colloquium and “its” 33 symposiums. This is a gargantuan task to which the students have wholeheartedly devoted untold time and effort. “We have designated an organizing committee composed of ten people and are recruiting 30 students via their CVs so as to render the project viable”, explain in similar terms Uriel Cantrelle, Sylvain Lesueur and Nicolas Gutowski. A whole small business is being set up!”

The main chore consists in convincing the industrial actors of the pharmaceutical sector to make their contribution to the organization of the CMB congress. “We have got to raise 450,000 euros prior to next year”, specifically indicates Nicolas Gutowski, who is in charge of the commission sponsoring. But this shall be more than worth the trouble; the five days indeed represent a formidable “opportunity to promote French research”; they shall likewise provide a prominent display window for the laboratories belonging to the University of Poitiers. An Internet site dedicated to the event shall soon be seeing the light of day.
