Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the International Congress on Porphyrins and Porphyrias 2017 which will take place in Bordeaux France from the 25th to 28th of June 2017.

Sunday June 25th will be dedicated to a ”Patient Day” meeting which will be chaired by Mrs Sylvie Le Moal from the French Porphyria Patient Association.

The Scientific Congress will start on Sunday 25th at 7h00 pm with a welcome reception in the magnificent « Salons du Palais de la Bourse », followed at 9h00 pm by an Opening Lecture given by Professor George Elder (UK) in the main Theater Jean Touton. The following days, Monday June 26th, Tuesday June 27th and Wednesday June 28th, are divided into seven dedicated scientific sessions trying to cover most of the heme/porphyrins/porphyrias field with plenary lectures (PL) and oral communications (OC) selected from the abstracts.

In addition, we have tried to organize an interesting and fascinating social programme with a discovery Evening and Dinner on Monday June 26th at the world known and marvellous town of Saint Emilion and a Gala Dinner on Tuesday June 27th evening at the Chateau Giscours world famous for its outstanding red bordeaux wines !

Scientific programme as well as social programme are accessible on the website : www.icpp2017.org

We will be much honored to host you in our most beautiful city of Bordeaux and we invite you to go through the congress website or contact the secretariat of the Congress for all necessary informations.

We wish to warmly thank you in advance for your participation and to thank our partners, sponsors and exhibitors for their major contributions.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Bordeaux !

Best Wishes and Kind Regards,


Hubert de Verneuil and Jean-Charles Deybach
