Today we know that selenium has a wide range of important functions in nature. To celebrate 200 Years of Selenium Research, an international selenium conference will be held at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm on 13-17 August 2017. The conference will cover all fields of current selenium research, with a special focus on biology, medicine, biomedicine, and the environment. The conference will officially be composed of two serial symposia, for the first time held in parallel at the same site and having overlapping plenary sessions, poster sessions and social events. The two symposia are The 11th International Symposium on Selenium in Biology and Medicine, which is the continuation of a meeting held in Berlin in 2013 (http://selenium2013.com), and The 5th International Conference on Selenium in the Environment and Human Health, as continued from a meeting held in Brazil in 2015 (see ‘Conferences’ on www.seleniumresearch.org).
Registration for Se2017 will open in 2016. This website will be further updated closer to the launch of Se2017. Save the dates to come to Stockholm in August 2017!
Feel free to contact the organizers if you have questions or ideas for the upcoming conference; the chair of the local organizing committee, is professor Elias Arnér, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden ( )
