ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE – Reshaping biomedical and healthcare research

Continuing our tradition of exploring frontiers in biomedical sciences, the 2024 edition of the FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE conference shifts its focus to the expanding field of AI in Biomedicine.

We are thrilled to announce a milestone in the history of the FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE conference. For the first time ever, we are going global, bringing this esteemed event to Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, from the 4–6 December 2024.

In collaboration with the Scientific and Local Organising Committees, we are crafting an engaging and informative program that includes our signature Career Day and a wide range of outreach activities.

Stay tuned for our full program, which will be regularly updated. For exclusive updates, sneak peeks, and behind-the-scenes content, be sure to follow us on our social media channels: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn. Join us for an insightful journey into the intersection of artificial intelligence and biomedicine!

What can you expect from a FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE conference?

FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE conferences stand out because they have been organised by and for young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) from several European institutions. The annual gatherings comprise various parts, the most significant being a scientific symposium, which seeks to explore the latest research and pioneering developments in the molecular life sciences. Coupled with this symposium, a wide range of activities focused on employment opportunities, including a career day, career workshops and a job fair, are also organised. These conferences also seek to engage the public via outreach activities especially tailored to target certain audiences. In addition to the relevance of public engagement, these activities provide an ideal training opportunity for PhD students and postdocs interested in science communication.

Scientific symposium

Scientific symposium

The scientific symposium aims to highlight the most recent advances in biomedical life sciences and to help young scientists broadcast and discuss their latest findings.

Each year, more than 250 participants join the Scientific Symposium, where keynote speakers give insights into latest the developments and make themselves available to discuss their science with participants. ENABLE participants have also the opportunity of sharing their science during highly interactive poster sessions and by giving flash and short talks.

Career day

Career day

The career day is one of the core activities of the ENABLE event and participants will have the opportunity to develop their professional future as young scientists.

Participants will have the chance to broaden their horizons and expand their capabilities through three complementary career activities: insightful discussions with experts from different career paths in the career chats section, workshops aimed at building new skills, and an opportunity fair hosting potential job options from the different sectors.

Outreach activities


One of the main goals of ENABLE is to bring science closer to society through educational online pub talks that will be held by the participants from their homes.

A great variety of outreach activities aimed to general public like Ask the Scientist and a Cross-disciplinary session, as well as activities for primary and high school students will foster the interaction between young scientists and the general public to raise awareness around biomedicine and its impact on healthcare.

Call for host institutions
