The FORUM Conference, organized by the Doctoral School of Natural Sciences at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, took place on September 19-21 at the Faculty of Biology of UAM. The meeting dedicated to doctoral students provides an excellent opportunity to discuss research results, exchange opinions and experiences in the field with other scientists. This year, among the numerous guests delivering lectures were Prof. Marcello Coradini, Prof. Kelly Cistina Tonello, Prof. Karen S.
