AMMR 2019 is over! IMAGES & NEWS HERE

Event: International symposium "Advances in Marine Mussel Research 2019" (AMMR 2019)

Date: 26-28 August 2019 (Mon-Wed)

Venue: Palazzo Grassi, Riva Canal Vena 1281-Calle Grassi Naccari, 30015 Chioggia (Venice) Italy 

The Department of Biology organizes the international symposium "Advances in Marine Mussel Research 2019" (AMMR 2019) that will take place in Palazzo Grassi (Chioggia, Venice) on August 26-28, 2019.

AMMR 2019 is in its third edition, after AMMR 2016 held in Vigo (Spain) and AMMR 2017 held in Sète (Montpellier, France). The symposium will convey the latest and multidisciplinary research news on mussels of the Mytilus genus and will gather researchers who are using them as biological models of study.


We are very pleased to host AMMR 2019 in the University of Padova, where several researchers currently investigate mussels for basic and applied purposes, and in Chioggia, where the MS course in Marine biology takes place in Palazzo Grassi, an 18th century building hosting student classrooms and the zoological Museum “Giuseppe Olivi”.  Close to Palazzo Grassi, the marine station Umberto D’Ancona is part of the Department of Biology (University of Padova) and hosts local research teams and visitors from abroad (see more in English at chioggia.biologia.unipd.it).
