Hyderabad has a distinctive culture with its unique style of paintings, handicraft, jewellery, language, and literature.For its distinct cuisine, the city is listed as UNESCO creative city of gastronomy.

After a stressful, challenging two years of pandemic, it's time to meet and greet friends, enjoy the hospitality of Hyderabad and at the same time exchange ideas, share scientific knowledge and present your research. The emphasis of this congress (AFSUMB 2022) is on the practical, and therefore we are planning a plethora of workshops, case discussions and meet the professor sessions.
