Welcome

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 11th International Symposium on Circulating Nucleic Acids in Plasma and Serum (CNAPS), to take place on September 23-25, 2019, at the Inbal Hotel, in Jerusalem, Israel.

The CNAPS meetings take place every two years since 1997, at different locations around the world. This unique series brings together founders and leaders of the field with young researchers, students, and biotech industry in a high-profile yet intimate setting.

CNAPS 2019 covers biology and physiology of circulating nucleic acids, new technologies and practical considerations, and the wide range of applications of CNAPS spanning liquid biopsies in cancer, NIPT, and other areas. The last few years have seen a tremendous pace of progress in the field, which will be presented by an international panel of leading researchers. The conference is limited to approximately 230 attendees and provides ample opportunities for interactions, discussions, knowledge sharing and networking across the broad community.

Jerusalem – home to the three major monotheistic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam, is a city rich in history and culture dating back over three thousand years, offering a vibrant blend of ancient and contemporary life. The Symposium venue is within walking distance to the city’s main attractions, shopping areas and entertainment centers, and near an array of unique and memorable historic and holy sites, in and around the Old City.

We encourage you to take this opportunity and benefit from an exciting meeting, an attractive social program and a chance to visit the unique and fascinating sites in Jerusalem and in Israel.

On behalf of the International Organizing Committee, we look forward to welcoming you in Jerusalem in 2019.

Nitzan Rosenfeld and Yuval Dor
