Some thoughts on the Liposomes, Exosomes, and Virosomes Biophysical Society thematic meeting while dealing with different forms of rejection and pressure   Leave a comment

About two weeks ago I attended a very interesting Biophysical Society thematic meeting entitled Liposomes, Exosomes, and Virosomes: From Modeling Complex Membrane Processes to Medical Diagnostics and Drug Delivery held in the beautiful Monte Verita’ in Ascona, Switzerland.

It has been a vey intense and enriching professional experience, and being a guest blogger of the meeting for the Biophysical Society blog has also been challenging and demanding at the same time. Apart from the highly interesting talks from extremely talented and successful speakers, I also had the opportunity to socialize with new and old friends during breakfast, lunch, dinner and poster presentations times. Fortunately, we also had some time off to enjoy the wonderful lake views, to hike, and to visit Ascona, Locarno and other nearby amenities.asconabpstm2016

All the positive energy I collected during the week long meeting lasted long enough to give a decent talk, which was on the same research topic of the poster presented ten days before, at the 52nd Annual Chemistry Research Colloquium at John Innes Centre in Norwich. Unfortunately, it did not last too long because last Friday we got a rejection for a manuscript, completely based on the research of the talk, submitted to the Biophysical Journal at the beginning of this month.

Anyway, we received very good (still negative) comments by all the reviewers of the paper and we will, hopefully, find a way to improve the manuscript to make it publishable in another journal sooner or later…
