Abstract : The 10th International Meeting on Cholinesterases was organised jointly by the Institute for Medical Research and Occupational Health and the Croatian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The meeting venue was in Sibenik, Croatia. The meeting gathered about 200 participants including 50 participants from USA. The scientific program comprised 2 plenary lectures, 86 oral and 102 poster presentations grouped under six sessions, and a 3D-session. All presentations were about cholinesterase research that is widely multidisciplinary, from very fundamental (molecular structure, catalytic mechanism, genetics and evolution, cell biology) to more applied aspects (natural and synthetic cholinesterase inhibitors in Alzheimer's disease therapy; antidotes to anti-cholinesterase poisoning from nerve agents and pesticides). The Programme and Abstracts book is published. Proceedings comprising both oral and poster presentations will be published in the Elsevier journal Chemico-Biological Interactions (CBI) as full length papers or short communications.
