Very important: to avoid overlap between Biometals 2004 and this congress, the date of the IMBG International Meeting has been changed to the 6th-8th of September 2004.

Welcome on the First International IMBG Meeting dedicated to homeostasis of metals. The Institute of Metals in Biology of Grenoble will inaugurate from the 6th to the 8th of September 2004 this new biannual conference. This meeting will take place in Villard-de-Lans, a village located in the Vercors regional park, 20 km away from Grenoble.
