Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the third Students' Symposium in Biology and Life Sciences – SiSB3!

After successfully carrying out two installments of the Symposium in 2015 and 2016, we are proud to announce the third edition which will be held on May 27th, 2017.

We imagined this event as a meeting place for all students who have passion for biology and life sciences, both from the Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb, and those with other related study programs in the country and abroad. Together with invited speakers, you will acquire new knowledge and skills, have the opportunity to present the results of your own research, and to establish numerous contacts and unforgettable friendships.

We therefore urge all of you who deal with scientific work in any of the wide range of biology- and life sciences-related fields to actively participate in SiSB3!

This year dozens of students, scientists, and teachers will prepare the best atmosphere of the students' symposium at the Department of Biology, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb.

Finally, dear students, we most sincerely invite you to the third Students' SymposIum in Biology and life sciences - SiSB3!

Vedran Vuković

Chair of SiSB3 Organizing Committee



We are greatly pleased to proclaim the confirmed invited speaker at the third SiSB:

Professor Martin is involved in the fields of evolutionary biology and biocheimistry. His interests include investigation of plastid, mitochondria and hydrogenosomes evolutionary past. His group uses different laboratory experiments and computational methods to elucidate the origin of eucaryotes and even go a step further, to the very source of life itself. He has published over 250 papers cited nearly 25 000 times.
