The Joint FEBS/EMBO Lecture Course ‘Molecular mechanisms of ageing and regeneration: from hydra to humans’ is part of a series of Summer Schools with a 50-year tradition on the wonderful island of Spetses, Greece. It brings together leaders in the fields of ageing and regeneration with early-stage researchers, i.e. PhD students and postdocs. The meeting combines lectures, discussion groups, poster sessions, tutorials under the olive trees or on the beach, and common dinners. The intense nature of the course creates a familiar and inspiring atmosphere and fosters interactions between participants and speakers. It thus creates a unique training and networking opportunity.

Location: Spetses Island, Greece
