Dear colleagues and friends,

Several Advanced Lecture Courses and six previous Special Meetings established the tradition of the ABC Meetings in Austria. Here, we proudly announce the 8th FEBS Special Meeting on ABC Proteins - ABC2020, in Innsbruck, Austria.

ABC2020 will 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 Innsbruck, Austria
