We cordially invite you to participate in the Peroxisystem 2016 symposium that will be held at the Weizmann Institute of Science, in Rehovot, Israel between 22th-25th February 2016.

This meeting will include exciting scientific sessions, aiming to understand peroxisomes as a complete biological system, as well as visits to beautiful sites in Israel.

We hope that this symposium will enable fruitful discussions between scientists from many different areas of research related to peroxisomes.

In addition to scientific topics, we also wish to focus on community building topics and empowering the young generation of peroxisome scientists. We plan a special session that will include six short talks given by students and postdocs in addition to one short talk in most sessions. Additionally a panel discussion for students will also be held.

In order to enable and encourage the participation of the young generation in the meeting, a large number of competitive scholarships for students and postdocs will be offered.

We very much hope to see you in what we believe will be an exciting meeting for researchers working on the various aspects of peroxisomes.

With best wishes,
