We are very grateful to our speakers, who not only come from various areas of expertise in studying, diagnosing and treating disease but also cover the broad range from molecules to large animals such as whales. This will result in a program with fascinating talks and lectures that should offer interesting and new knowledge and insights, hopefully resulting in fruitful discussions and new collaborations.
