EMBO Workshop — From molecules to organisms: An integrative view of cell biology
10 Jan 2023 - 15 Jan 2023 • Goldegg am See, Austria
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
This workshop follows the enthusiastic response to the conference organized in 2017. It responds to the need to revisit the structural and functional organization of cells in order incorporate and address two aspects:

1. New emerging concepts in membrane traffic: The study of membrane compartments has traditionally focused on single organelles or pathways. Yet, new insights into inter- organelle communication, membrane-less compartments, organelle-dependent regulation of metabolism, physical principles such as self-organization and mechanics in membrane structure and function, prompt us to pursue a more integrated view of sub-cellular organization.

2. Integrate membrane traffic and membrane biology to a higher level of organization, such as tissues and organisms. Cell biology has to go beyond cells in culture and contribute to the analysis of multi-cellular organisms, during development and in the adult. In this workshop, we aim to gain an integrative and multi-scale perspective of the molecular mechanisms from the sub-cellular to tissue/organism levels. We propose to organize this innovative workshop that can help addressing these challenges. It will therefore focus on new research advances on cytoplasm organization both at the molecular level and subcellular level and bridge it to adjacent fields, such as disease, physics, metabolism and tissue development.

EMBO Workshop — Meiosis
18 Jun 2023 - 23 Jun 2023 • Pamhagen , Austria
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Meiosis is a defining feature of sexual reproduction. This specialized cell division program comprises a single round of DNA replication followed by two successive cell divisions, thereby reducing chromosome number by half. This reduction accommodates the later combination of two haploid gametes during fertilization to reconstitute a full diploid genome. The unique events of meiosis, including pairwise alignment of parental chromosomes, inter-homolog recombination, kinetochore attachment, cell cycle adaptations and error correction mechanisms, are intensely studied processes in numerous model organisms (fungi, protists, plants, and animals). The Meiosis field is driven by fascination in how evolution has implemented and perfected the meiotic program, and also by its significance to both plant breeding and human health. As a special topic for the 2021 EMBO Workshop, we have chosen homolog pairing. The recognition and physical pairing of homologous chromosomes is an essential feature of meiosis, and also occurs in other contexts. It is therefore timely to bring together the fields of meiotic and post-meiotic chromosome pairing to potentially uncover common principles and mechanisms.
