The European Iron Club exists to foster communication and collaboration among biomedical scientists and clinicians whose work is concerned with iron. Europe-based research groups cover a wide variety of iron-related topics, ranging from iron biochemistry to the genetics of iron metabolism and the treatment of iron-associated human diseases.
The traditional ethos of the European Iron Club is to generate a relaxed, open environment to encourage the development of young researchers and the forging of worthwhile links between iron scientists.
The European Iron Club generally hosts meetings on an annual basis, which consist of a mixture of scientific presentations and informal discussion and social gatherings. Exceptions are those years when the International BioIron Society holds a congress in a European location; at such BioIron meetings, the EIC stages a cocktail party.
The 2020 EIC meeting postponed due to COVID 19 has been rescheduled for to September 5-8 2021, with September 9 available for patient group meetings. It will be held at the Mathematical Institute , the University of Oxford, UK.
