Following the vision of promoting and strengthen collaboration between Mexican and USA Investigators, hold for 22 years, in this occasion we join for the first time as part of the ASPB regional section.
The conference will include Keynote and Plenary lectures from prestigious academic leaders in the Plant Field that will address the state of the art in selected scientific topics. It is highly gratifying to have the valuable participation of distinguished colleagues from Mexico and USA interested to meet and interact with their peers, particular young investigators and students.
This conference encourages the participation of young scientists, motivated students and postdocs to submit their abstracts to be considered for oral presentations by the scientific committee.
Selected abstracts will be chosen for a prize and distinctions and the “Federico Sanchez” prize that honors our funder member.
Mérida, “The White City” was founded by Francisco de Montejo in 1542 over the ruins of T-hò, an ancient Mayan settlement. During the colonial period, stones taken from the Mayan temples were used to build several churches and convents that can be seen in Mérida today, Merida, located in the Yucatán peninsula, is also close to gorgeous archeological and beautiful natural places.
