Recently, mitochondrial factors have been emerged as response elements to cell nucleus performance. Thus, unraveling the whole connectivity between the biomolecules involved in all this regulatory mitochondria-nucleus crosstalk and its relation to cell fate and physiological state is nowadays a major challenge. Indeed, as a supra-disciplinary field, it demands collaborative efforts involving Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Structural Biology and Cancer Biology, and new approaches in which experimental and computational methods used.

The Scientific Program is organized in Plenary Lectures, together with sessions containing Oral Short Communications selected from the submitted abstracts. In this regard, an effort to give preference to young researchers will be made. The program leaves enough time for fruitful and lively discussions, especially during the following sessions: 1-min Flash Presentations, Poster Party and Round Table. The singularity of CrossMitoNus are the activities Guided Poster Tour and Speakers´ Corner, which will be held during poster sessions and breaks.

CrossMitoNus will bring together about 100 PhD students and young postdocs, some of them will be awarded with grants offered by IUBMB, FEBS and Spanish National Societies, including Spanish Biophysical Society (SBE) and Spanish Groups of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (GERMN) and Chemical Biology (GEQB) from the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSEQ).

The Spanish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SEBBM) offers six grants of 200-EUR to support the participation of early-career scientists in this event.
