Welcome to HPBB 2016 in Toronto

The 9th International Conference on High Pressure Bioscience and Biotechnology (HPBB 2016) will be held in Toronto (Canada) over the dates of 25 to 29 July 2016 at the St. George Campus of the University of Toronto.  This will be the first HPBB conference in Canada.

The conference will provide a stimulating environment for sharing ideas and discussing the latest developments in the use and understanding of pressure in many scientific disciplines.  The presentations will deal with experimental research relevant to applications of high pressure and the theory underlying this work in fields of fundamental and practical interest.  The agenda will include invited lectures as well as oral and poster presentations by the attendees.  There also will be a sightseeing excursion and opportunity to exchange ideas and socialize in informal settings.
