Dear Colleagues & Friends:

Several FEBS Advanced Lecture Courses and one Special Meeting established the tradition of the ABC Meetings in Austria. Now, ABC Meetings move to the next stage, and we proudly announce the 2nd FEBS Special Meeting on ABC Proteins, ABC2008, in Innsbruck Austria.

Further, major sponsors include Solvo Biotechnology, Joseph Steiner Cancer Research Foundation, PXE International and the CFF .

ABC2008 which shall cover all basic and applied aspects of ABC proteins, both in normal and cancer cells, as well as their important roles in genetic diseases as well as drug resistance phenomena in cancer or microbial systems.

Leading scientists from all over the world and representatives of major pharmaceutical companies will present and discuss latest news on ABC proteins operating in bacteria, fungi, plants, parasites and humans. We were able to commit numerous leading experts to participate, with many new faces attending as plenary speakers.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Innbruck, Austria
