From Physics to Function
09 Oct 2022 - 12 Oct 2022 • Buxted Park, East Sussex, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The Company of Biologists Ltd
Abstract:
With the increased appreciation that physical forces are key regulators of all biological processes, new emerging scientific communities are forming around topics such as physical forces in cancer and mechanobiology in different biological processes ranging from development to homeostasis. Currently, there exists somewhat of a void between the biologists and the physicists working on these topics. The interests are shared but the communication between the two crowds is limited by the lack of a common language. On one hand, there are vast advances being made in generating tuneable materials, versatile biomimetic polymers and artificial 3D scaffolds, and these are linked to advanced modelling and understanding of the physical parameters of these systems. However, the biological questions addressed may have limited physiological relevance and lack careful consideration of the burning questions in biology. On the other side, the cell biologists/developmental biologists/cancer biologists lack contact with the physicists, modellers and material scientists, and are unable to connect their biology to the relevant physical principles and available methodology. They lack understanding of the theory behind tissue mechanics and the engineering skills to investigate them. They would benefit massively from closer collaboration with the “other crowd”. Therefore, the main goal of this Workshop is to foster integration between physics and biology across scales, approaches, and participant backgrounds. The Workshop will be entail “biology-physics duets” – talks given jointly by two currently collaborating speakers, with different backgrounds. These will be accompanied by “solo” talks and relevant round table discussions on how physics and biology can be better integrated.
Topics:
1) Mechanotransduction from cell adhesions to the nucleus 2) Cytoskeleton mechanics and migration 3) Modelling of biological processes across scales 4) Top-down versus bottom-up approaches to living systems 5) How to promote cross-disciplinary research on biologically relevant questions

EMBO Workshop — Adherent microbial communities: Quantitative approaches from single cell to ecosystems
10 Oct 2022 - 14 Oct 2022 • Cargese, France
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Bacteria form complex spatially structured adherent communities which involve physical forces, chemical gradients and cooperative cell-cell interactions. An integrated view of these processes at all scales from the single cell to mesoscale patterns and ecosystems requires microbiologists and physicists to bridge large disciplinary gaps. To this purpose, the involved scientific communities must not only establish new cross-disciplinary language but also train the next generation of scientists to these emerging challenges. This EMBO workshop aims to fulfill this ambitious goal and connect senior and junior researchers through a series of lectures, seminars and workshops that will zoom in, from single cell approaches, and out, to the ecology of complex microbial consortia.

EACR Conference Cancer Metabolism
11 Oct 2022 - 13 Oct 2022 • Bilbao, Spain
Organizer:
European Association For Cancer Research (ECAR)
Abstract:
The study of cancer metabolism has changed our view of tumour biology. Cancer and stromal cells alter their metabolic wiring in order to meet the energetic and anabolic demands, to cope with external insults, to survive in hostile environments and to alter the molecular properties of the niche they inhabit. In this context, it is not surprising that genomic and cellular signalling perturbations have profound consequences on the metabolic landscape. The 2nd EACR Conference on Cancer Metabolism will gather top experts in the field to discuss the metabolic alterations in tumours and how we can exploit it to treat cancer. The city of Bilbao in Spain will continue to host the conference and bring together excellent research and a unique environment.
Topics:
Core metabolic alterations in tumours, Cancer metabolism and the control of the epigenome, Cancer metabolism beyond the tumour cell, Emerging cancer metabolism-based therapeutic strategies, Technological advances in cancer metabolism

EMBO Practical Course — Metabolite and species dynamics in microbial communities
16 Oct 2022 - 21 Oct 2022 • Heidelberg, Germany
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Metagenomics studies are rapidly uncovering the compositional richness of microbial communities in diverse habitats ranging from the oceans to the human gut. While their fundamental role in our health and environment is undeniable, there is an urgent need for unravelling molecular mechanisms underlying the dynamics of these communities. This requires a combined experimental and computational approach. Recent studies (including those from the organisers’ and speakers’ labs) have underlined the success of such integrative approaches. For example, emergence of cell subpopulations (Varahan et al. eLife 2019, 2020), and long-term stability (Blasche, Kim et al. Nat Microbiol. 2021) through metabolic cross-feeding. As researchers world-wide map species dynamics in the ecosystems of their interest, this course will provide the necessary overview and tools for moving from cataloguing to identifying key interaction agents, especially metabolites. This will include integrating species and metabolite dynamics data, as well as leveraging the power of genome-scale metabolic models to predict community interactions.

CRSy22 — Champalimaud Research Symposium 2022 (CRSy22): Tumour microenvironment: from cancer initiation to metastasis
19 Oct 2022 - 21 Oct 2022 • Lisbon - hybrid, Portugal
Organizer:
Champalimaud Foundation
Abstract:
Cancer initiation and progression are orchestrated through local and systemic interactions between tumour and tumour-associated cells. A more detailed characterisation of these interactions has so far contributed to a new generation of antitumour strategies and to improved cancer prognosis. However, although we have gained increasing knowledge about the cellular and molecular constituents of tumour-promoting and tumour-suppressing microenvironments, an accurate map delineating the role of each of these constituents remains unavailable. By bringing together experts who have greatly contributed to our understanding of the tumour microenvironment, the Champalimaud Research Symposium 2022 (#CRSy22) will provide access to the most recent developments in basic and clinical research in this complex area. CRSy22 will take the form of a single-track scientific meeting with 18 invited speakers, talks selected from abstracts and 2 poster sessions, among other networking and social activities. The hybrid format will give delegates the option to attend and present their work either in-person or online.

EMBO Workshop — The cell cycle: One engine – many cycles
20 Oct 2022 • Konstanz, Germany
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
The regulatory network known as the cell cycle is fundamental to the life of all eukaryotic organisms. The challenge in cell division research is to understand the mechanistic principles of the key processes and to integrate them into a cyclical or linear sequence generating viable daughter cells. Cell cycle research has succeeded in ordering these processes into a generic or “text book” cycle. However, this concept does not reflect the remarkable ability of the cell cycle “engine” to orchestrate a variety of cell divisions. These include not only embryonic, somatic, and meiotic divisions, but also divisions controlled by developmental context or physical factors, and the aberrant divisions of cancer cells. The EMBO Cell Cycle Workshop 2022 will therefore emphasise the question of how the basic cell cycle machinery is modified to generate different types of divisions. Working across different model systems and approaches, the cell division field has recognized the need for a common “language” in the form of mathematics and physics. This EMBO Workshop will therefore promote exchange between numerous disciplines to generate a new understanding of how the cell cycle creates the diversity of life.

EMBO Workshop — The endoplasmic reticulum: The master regulator of membrane trafficking
23 Oct 2022 - 28 Oct 2022 • Lucca, Italy
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
This EMBO Workshop will include new discoveries that surround the ER's historical and important role in regulating the translation, translocation and folding of membrane and secreted proteins of the secretory pathway. It will further include new insights into the signaling pathways that allow the ER to correct for cell stress, the unfolded protein response, and maintaining lipid homeostasis. Recent years have also revealed emerging and unexpected new functions for this old organelle in regulating the biogenesis of other organelles at membrane contact sites (MCSs). These MCSs have generated much excitement in cell biology because they are hybrid locations where the elaborate ER network can communicate with other organelles through calcium signaling, lipid metabolism, and the recruitment of machineries that modify membrane shape, trafficking and division. They reveal that not every membrane bound component traffics through vesicles, rather many move directly at positions where the ER is tethered and apposed to the plasma membrane and other organelles to rapidly communicate signals across the cell that can maintain homeostasis. Disruption of ER homeostasis and ER structure is a hallmark of various diseases. Thus, understanding basic mechanisms controlling ER functions may provide insight into a broad range of pathologies.

EMBO Workshop — Molecular and physiological basis of behavioural/cognitive defects in Neurodevelopmental disorders
31 Oct 2022 - 03 Nov 2022 • Bengaluru , India
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Cognitive deficits in neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) are a significant health burden worldwide. Mechanistic understanding of developmental defects of neural circuitry from system to molecular level is limited. The elucidation of genetic or epigenetic factors modulating the establishment of functional neural circuits during critical periods and their impact on cognitive function has shed significant insights into the causal relationship of behavioural deficits associated with NDD. The seamless integration of molecular knowledge with systems- and cognitive- level analyses is the 'need of the hour' to associate mechanisms of circuit-specific developmental deficits with cognitive outcome linked to NDD. This meeting will bring together the leading experts who are working on various aspects of the NDD to discuss recent advancement in the field. This EMBO Workshop will create a platform for young neuroscientists including postdoctoral fellows and graduate students who wish to pursue their research in this emerging field. This EMBO Workshop will particularly enable postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to present their research in front of leading experts and learn about challenges in the field through an informal, yet an intense discussion with invited speakers.

EMBO Lecture Course — Microphysiological systems: Advances and applications in human-relevant research
31 Oct 2022 - 05 Nov 2022 • Hyderabad, India
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
There has been an increasing awareness in the scientific community regarding the inability of animal models to often capture the complexities of human biology. In the last decade, there have been significant advances in the field of model systems that are based on human biology, including microphysiological systems (MPS). These systems aim to recapitulate the physiology and functions of a single human organ or a network of organs at a smaller scale, such as organoids or organs-on-chip. MPS have often been proposed as the next frontier of human-relevant research in drug discovery and testing. The lecture course will give an overview of the current research of how these model systems are being used to understand human disease and development. It will also cover design considerations, current challenges, setting standards and roadmap for broader adoption and use of these systems. In addition, the course would have networking sessions for early career researchers and students, along with discussions on collaborations, international grants, and entrepreneurship.

Genotype to Phenotype: Bridging Comparative Genomics and Cell Biology
13 Nov 2022 - 16 Nov 2022 • Buxted Park, East Sussex, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The Company of Biologists Ltd
Abstract:
In this Workshop, we aim to bring together computational, cell, and evolutionary biologists to help address this major challenge of integrative cell biology. We strongly believe that actively seeking out collaboration across fields will be crucial to push cell biology beyond the boundaries of individual species into a truly comparative discipline anchored to predictive models. In turn, computational biologists will have an opportunity to guide and influence the next phase of big data generation in cell biology. Together, in deciphering the rules that underpin the relationship between the genome and the cell that encases it, we will better understand both evolution and cellular function.

EMBO Workshop — Inositol lipids: Signaling platforms for organizing cellular architecture and physiology
14 Nov 2022 - 18 Nov 2022 • Bangalore, India
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Phosphoinosites are now well recognised as signaling intermediates and their role in cell surface signal transduction and sub-cellular processes such as membrane trafficking have been described. However, in recent years, the availability of high-resolution imaging tools and novel technologies have resulted in new models on the dynamics of PIs in living cellular organelles and the mechanisms by which their levels and distribution are controlled. This in turn has led to emerging ideas on novel modes by which PIs regulate cell architecture and physiology. In parallel, high-throughput genomics technologies have led to the description of genetic changes in protein components of the PI signaling system linked to human disease. Finally, lipidomics technologies are beginning to provide new insights into the acyl chain diversity of PIs that is likely to inform on their function as specific sub-cellular processes. This workshop offers an exciting and opportune moment to discuss the manner in which PIs act as master regulators of cellular architecture and physiology in health and disease.

EMBO | CoB Workshop — Wnt 2022
15 Nov 2022 - 19 Nov 2022 • Awaji, Japan
Organizer:
EMBO Workshop co-supported by The Company of Biologists and Yamada Science Foundation
Abstract:
During the last four decades, a number of studies have revealed that Wnt signaling plays crucial roles in embryonic development, tissue morphogenesis and regeneration, and many other physiological and pathological processes. Therefore, the knowledge about this signaling is crucial not only for the understanding of multiple aspects of physiology in all life courses but for that of pathology in human diseases. Since Wnt research covers various fields of the life science, this meeting is aiming to cover “molecular and cellular biology of the signaling”, “structural biology”, and “stem cell biology”, as well as “clinical application”. An important objective of this EMBO Workshop on Wnt 2022 is to bring together researchers from different fields for exchanging cutting-edge information that advance this research field.

Gordon Research Conference — Carotenoids
08 Jan 2023 - 13 Jan 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
The 2023 Carotenoid Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is a multidisciplinary meeting that addresses the biology of carotenoids and their derivatives apocarotenoids, in microorganisms, plants and mammals, including humans. Carotenoids are synthesized by all photosynthetic organisms and some non-photosynthetic microbes. Besides their vital role in photoprotection and light-harvesting, carotenoids are precursors of established and novel apocarotenoid hormones and regulatory metabolites involved in many aspects of plant's life, including development and intra-specific communications. Unable to synthesize carotenoids, mammals, including humans, obtain these pigments through the diet and convert them into retinoids (vitamin A and its derivatives). Indeed, biofortification of staple crops with carotenoids remains a major strategy to prevent the overwhelming public health issue of vitamin A deficiency (VAD). In addition, carotenoids are used by mammals as antioxidants and for pigmentation (as in macular pigment of the human fovea). Overall, dietary carotenoids and apocarotenoids provide a plethora of health benefits to humans, modulating vision, cognitive functions, embryonic development and growth, as well as preventing onset and development of chronic diseases.

Gordon Research Seminar — Stochastic Physics in Biology
14 Jan 2023 - 15 Jan 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
As an interdisciplinary field of study, research that aims to understand multiscale cellular processes is characterized by a diversity of approaches: theory, models, and biological experiments. This range of disciplines and approaches often employ different techniques, perspectives, and “languages” to describe similar ideas, which can be confusing even for seasoned experts. As such, trainees studying multiscale cellular processes must understand diverse perspectives and learn to communicate outside of their own expertise. At this GRS, trainees will have the opportunity to present and learn from their peers who are learning to navigate this rapidly-changing field and will shape its future. The GRS centers discussion and engagement among trainees to foster conversation and collaboration.

Gordon Research Conference — Stochastic Physics in Biology
15 Jan 2023 - 20 Jan 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
At the most fundamental level, physical and chemical laws govern the operations of a living cell. For example, the energetics of a biochemical reaction obey the law of thermodynamics, and the kinetics the law of mass action. At the functional level, however, when, where and at what rate a biomolecule executes its function through its binding to a partner or enzymatic catalysis is stochastic, and can only be described in probabilistic instead of deterministic terms. At this level, the integration between experiments and theories becomes extremely important, because new theories need to be developed to explain stochastic experimental observations and guide further experimental explorations, and experiments need to be conducted to test theoretical predications and establish biological significance.

Gordon Research Seminar — Immunology of Fungal Infections
21 Jan 2023 - 22 Jan 2023 • Galveston, TX, United States
Abstract:
A deep immunological understanding of fungal infections is crucial in order to reduce the fungal impact on human health. Advances in the field of fungal immunology over the past few years have identified crucial factors that predispose patients to fungal infections, including genetic factors. Essential pathways in mucosal and systemic immune responses to fungi have been uncovered. Most importantly, the increasing knowledge in the immunology of fungal infections has initiated the development of novel therapeutic strategies aimed at improving antifungal immunity or suppressing detrimental immune pathways. Despite these advances, many questions about the complex interaction of fungi, microbiome, and immune system remain unanswered. Therefore, the Gordon Research Seminar provides a platform for early career scientists to build collaborations with clinicians and industry in order to translate fundamental research into personalized medicine and diagnostics for fungal infections.

Gordon Research Seminar — Neuroimmune Communication in Health and Disease
21 Jan 2023 - 22 Jan 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
In recent years, it has been increasingly evident that the innate and adaptive immune system intricately interact with the non-immune resident CNS cells to preserve and/or modify the function of the brain and of the organism. Reciprocally, these non-immune resident cells can also alter immune responses. These symbiotic relationships are essential for tissue development, injury response, recovery to homeostasis, and may potentially extend to the health of the progeny. Trainees from wide scientific backgrounds, from genomics to basic immunology to electrophysiology and animal behavior will contribute to a richness of topics and approaches to understanding complex neuroimmune interactions.

Gordon Research Conference — Physical Virology
22 Jan 2023 - 27 Jan 2023 • Lucca (Barga), LU, Italy
Abstract:
At the global level, viral epidemiology depends on modes of transmission and social networks; at the cellular level viruses repurpose protein interaction networks and remodel cellular compartments; on the local level the assembly and disassembly of a virus is governed by (and reveals) physical principles. Viruses also bridge multiple scientific disciplines. In biomedicine, understanding viral lifecycles provides essential information for developing antiviral agents that block infection. In more fundamental sciences, viruses are ideal model systems for studying mechanisms underlying self-assembly, genome packaging and release, allostery, membrane dynamics, and the efficient passage of nanoscale particles through membranes. The COVID-19 pandemic highlights the need for these cross-disciplinary approaches to understand viral biology, predict their global spread in impact, and develop new treatments. In addition to advancing antiviral strategies and cell biology, the knowledge acquired from these studies and the viral particles themselves are enabling researchers to engineer virus-based platforms for biomedical and nanomaterials applications, such as gene delivery or optoelectronics. This natural diversity requires collaborative efforts of researchers with a wide range of expertise.

Gordon Research Conference — Metals in Biology
22 Jan 2023 - 27 Jan 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
Metal centers play critical roles in a wide range of essential biological processes. To accomplish this, they nucleate and form biomolecular structures; carry molecules, ions, and electrons; serve as centers for catalysis; and participate in regulation and signaling. Metabolism links biology to the environment via the global cycles of the elements including nitrogen, sulfur, and carbon. Investigating how organisms acquire and utilize metals thus is critical to our understanding of biological mechanisms and their intersection with the global environment. Our growing understanding of the diverse reactivity of biological metals has inspired chemists to develop molecules and materials that mimic biological structures and activities. The resulting design and synthesis of bioinspired molecules, especially catalysts, has yielded detailed insights into biological function, while also moving the field of inorganic chemistry in new directions. The Metals in Biology GRC brings together scientists from diverse backgrounds to present and discuss recent progress in this area. Experts in chemistry, physics, biology, environmental science, and biomedicine at a range of career stages will participate.

Gordon Research Conference — Neuroimmune Communication in Health and Disease
22 Jan 2023 - 27 Jan 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
While neuroimmunology has roots in neurology, neuroscience and immunology, the neuroimmune system has emerged as structurally and cellularly distinct from the peripheral immune system and in its ability to orchestrate a variety of developmental and homeostatic processes, as well as responses to injury, neurodegeneration, toxins and infections. Contrary to early studies that tended to categorize neuroimmune responses, including the entry of all peripheral immune cells, as pathologic, the modern view recognizes these processes may exert neuroprotective roles and contribute to normal central and peripheral nervous system functions. The goal of this meeting is to bring together speakers and attendees with an interest in neuroimmune mechanisms and interactions.

Gordon Research Seminar — Speciation
28 Jan 2023 - 29 Jan 2023 • Lucca (Barga), LU, Italy
Abstract:
Since 2017, the Gordon Research Conference on Speciation has been accompanied by the Gordon Research Seminar on Speciation. A continuous thread over the past decade has been integration, synthesis, and bridge building between a diversity of directions, systems, and approaches in modern speciation research. At the 2023 Speciation GRS, we will build on this legacy and further explore the causes of speciation and mechanisms of reproductive isolation, as well as address questions on species persistence through time. While the field has largely focused on the microevolutionary drivers of reproductive isolation, this research has largely failed to explain macroevolutionary patterns of species diversity. Thus, an emerging theme in speciation biology is understanding both the origins of new species, as well as the factors affecting the persistence of species diversity. The 2023 Speciation GRS will highlight cutting-edge graduate student and postdoctoral research that spans both micro- and macro-evolutionary scales and further promote synthesis on both the origin and persistence of species.

Gordon Research Conference — Speciation
29 Jan 2023 - 03 Feb 2023 • Lucca (Barga), LU, Italy
Abstract:
The Gordon Research Conference on Speciation is the world's largest conference focused on speciation research and is dedicated to integration, synthesis, and bridge-building between a diversity of directions, systems and approaches in modern speciation research. The 2023 Speciation GRC will build on these themes and further expand the sphere of speciation research. In particular, speciation research until now has largely focused on identifying the isolating mechanisms that promote the origin of new species. Despite many recent advances, this largely microevolutionary research program has failed to explain macroevolutionary patterns of species diversity. Thus, an emerging theme is that a complete understanding of speciation requires the identification of the mechanisms that promote the persistence of species. Addressing these questions requires new expertise and approaches from fields that have not traditionally been at the core of speciation research. The 2023 Speciation GRC will engage both emerging and established leaders in these fields to promote a further synthesis of the traditional and modern views of the mechanisms that promote both the origin and persistence of species.

Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
Abstract:
This will be the 4th Conference on Bacterial Cell Biology. In the last two decades there has been an explosion of interest in fundamental aspects of bacterial structure and function, based on advances in fluorescence and cryo-EM imaging. Quantitative and automated methods have brought about radical changes in the breadth and depth of questions that could be explored, while genome sequencing and genetic methods such as CRISPR-Cas9 and Tn-Seq have greatly expanded the range of organisms that can be studied incisively, enabling comparative studies of processes such as growth, morphogenesis and division, across diverse bacterial phyla. Many of these bacterial cell biology systems are being successfully reconstituted using purified components, leading to the discovery of molecular mechanisms underpinning cellular functions. The conference will bring together presentations illustrating the application of advanced cell and molecular biology methods to a wide range of basic functions in bacterial cells. Advances in understanding of the fundamentals of bacterial structure and function also create opportunities for the development of novel approaches to kill or modulate the growth and behaviour of bacterial cells.

Gordon Research Seminar — Mesophotic Coral Reef Ecosystems
18 Feb 2023 - 19 Feb 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
This forum will focus on leveraging data in data-limited mesophotic environments. Mesophotic coral reef ecosystems comprise a significant portion of total coral reef area but are relatively understudied. As these reefs are typically found between depths of 30 – 150m they are structured by factors such as light and bathymetry. Despite growing interest, sampling and exploration of these reefs remains difficult. Accessing the necessary depths for study poses a significant barrier to research. As this environment is still data-limited, the training of new researchers in both technical diving and rigorous methodologies is critical. This also highlights the need for strong collaborative work.

Gordon Research Conference — Mesophotic Coral Reef Ecosystems
19 Feb 2023 - 24 Feb 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
Mesophotic Coral Reefs are unique and understudied ecosystems that occur from ~30-150m under gradients of light, nutrients, and biotic pressures. These reefs are typically further offshore from anthropogenic stressors and below the depth limits of most natural stressor events, and the habitat available for the development of MCRs has been variably estimated at three to ten times the known areal extent of shallow coral reefs (<30 m). As such, MCRs have been increasingly studied in the context of a refugia for a variety of shallow reef species, many with broad depth distributions, which have been impacted by these stressors. However, there is also evidence that some MCR species have distinct populations with unique molecular and physiological adaptations along a shallow to deep depth gradient. While MCRs have been the subject of opportunistic exploration and sampling to date, over the last 5 years there has been a maturation of science within these ecosystems to address fundamental questions on the ecology, physiology, and evolutionary biology of species living within this steep gradient of abiotic factors. The theme of the 2nd MCRE GRC will be the changing scientific questions and techniques, that are rapidly transforming our understanding of MCR processes and their broader role in coral reef biomes.

Gordon Research Conference — Plant-Herbivore Interaction
26 Feb 2023 - 03 Mar 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
Plant-herbivore interactions are the conduit for energy flow from the sun to the diversity of life on the planet. Understanding the genetic and chemical mechanisms underlying these interactions inform fundamental biological principles and hold the key for solving applied problems. Recent advances show that plant-herbivore interactions are at the center of networks of diverse communities, with the macroevolution of chemical defense a driver of plant and herbivore diversity. Variability in defenses affects antagonistic and mutualistic interactions, many of which are relevant for conservation. At the same time, sensory biology of herbivores operates at different spatial scales, with consequences for the effects of plant resistance in communities and in pest management applications. With each decade we are getting closer to understanding the genetic basis of adaptation, and current work in plant-herbivore interactions is revealing surprising rules that govern evolution in ecological communities. The meeting will incorporate the interactions between plants and their vertebrate and invertebrate herbivores, including pollinators and seed dispersers, and associated microbes across wild and human dominated systems. Sessions will highlight diverse speakers with diverse approaches to stimulate discussion about paths to push the discipline forward. The 15th Gordon Research Conference on Plant-Herbivore Interactions (GRC PHI) will cover a wide range of topics, including sensory biology by plants and herbivores across scales, evolution of plant defenses, multispecies interactions, applications to pest management and climate change, and how new tools are changing our discipline.

EMBO Workshop — Mechanisms of neuronal remodelling
11 Mar 2023 - 14 Mar 2023 • Kibbuz Nahsholim, Israel
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Developmental neuronal remodelling is essential for establishing functional nervous systems across species. Remodelling involves specific elimination of existing connections, typically followed by strengthening of surviving synapses or even axon regrowth to develop new, adult-specific connections. While altered remodeling has long been suspected of contributing to neuropsychiatric conditions, such as autism, schizophrenia, and ADHD, studies only recently established firm molecular similarities between such disorders and developmental remodeling. Moreover, the mechanisms involved in developmental remodelling appear to be reiterated in neurodegeneration and during regeneration. Despite these significant advances in the field, many important questions remain open and will be discussed at this meeting.

26 Mar 2023 - 31 Mar 2023 • Lucca (Barga), LU, Italy
Abstract:
The Dendrites Gordon Research Conference reflects the growing understanding that dendrites might play a central role in neuronal computation. It has long been understood that up to thousands of synaptic inputs can arrive at different locations along a neuron’s dendrites and that the subsequent integrative process ultimately determines that neuron’s output. Recent advances in molecular, electrophysiological, and imaging techniques have led to a new picture of dendrites, and a deeper understanding of their computational role. In many instances, the dendrites themselves can be the engines of active processes that contribute to computation at the cellular and network levels.

Gordon Research Conference — Multi-Drug Efflux Systems
26 Mar 2023 - 31 Mar 2023 • Galveston, TX, United States
Abstract:
Multidrug efflux systems export a wide a variety of substrates from cells and consequently are capable of conferring resistance to a wide range of chemotherapeutic agents. Multidrug resistance caused by active drug efflux is one of the major clinical impediments in anti-cancer chemotherapy and treatment of infectious diseases. Multidrug exporters are ubiquitously expressed in prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms where they regulate absorption, distribution and excretion of xenobiotics, and protect sanctuary tissues by regulating the drug permeability of the blood-brain, -placenta and -testis barriers. In addition to regulating pharmacokinetics, transporters are also major players in dictating tissue-responses to drugs, from pharmacological efficacy to toxicity.

Its physico-chemical properties are rapidly modulated to accommodate or drive changes in shape or behaviour and to exchange matter and information with the environment. This symposium will bring together researchers from different communities interested in processes occurring at the cell surface across kingdoms. It will focus on new technologies that empower studies of cell wall, actin and membrane biology, such as advanced imaging in in vitro and in vivo systems, as well as approaches combining molecular biology with computational and biophysical approaches.

EMBO Workshop — Meiosis
18 Jun 2023 - 23 Jun 2023 • Pamhagen , Austria
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
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.

Abstract:
The conference will provide the platform for researchers in the recombination and repair fields to present their new unpublished data that sheds novel insights into not only the mechanisms of DSB repair by recombination, but also the consequences of inaccurate repair leading to cancer. It is now clear that many inheritable cancers, including those linked to defects in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes, are caused by defects in homologous recombination. Understanding the precise mechanisms of recombinational repair is therefore critical for the development of new drugs that can target these diseases and improve human health.

MORPHO23 — Dynamics of Self-Organization in Animal and Plant Development
24 Jul 2023 - 25 Aug 2023 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara
Abstract:
During animal and plant development, cells self-organize into complex organisms, through the gradual refinement of cellular identities and their arrangement in space. This is an iterative process, which progresses through successive rounds of symmetry breaking, accompanied by changes in molecular and mechanical properties that feed back across multiple scales. Many of the elementary processes underlying developmental patterning and morphogenesis are now well documented, and a growing array of tools is available to observe and manipulate their dynamics. Yet, we lack a set of general principles that explain how they are coordinated in space and time to produce a defined outcome, and comprehensive synthetic approaches that use such principles to recapitulate development in vitro. This program will bring together experimentalists and theoreticians to work towards an integrated view of self-organization. This requires that we examine how the collective dynamics of development emerge from individual cellular behaviors - how cellular decisions in high-dimensional gene expression landscapes are coordinated in patterning, and how cellular force generation and mechanical feedbacks provide a substrate for tissue-scale communication and morphogenesis. Unifying these different processes, the notion of information may provide a common currency for the molecular and mechanical cues that guide development, encouraging us to consider that information is not only conveyed and interpreted but also self-organizes.

Abstract:
Human microbiota – the collection of microbes living in and on our body – have a significant impact on human health and well-being. They have been associated with numerous diseases, yet we have barely understood their role in the context of life-style and genetics. Various initiatives are underway around the world to survey the human microbiota at several body sites, characterise them, understand their interactions with the human hosts, elucidate their role in diseases, and design possible therapeutic or dietary interventions. There is a new wave of studies mining the human microbiota for bioactive compounds such as antibiotics, and for characterising specific microbial strains. This conference will provide plentiful opportunities for researchers to learn about and to connect to important developments in studying the human microbiota

1st Spermatogenesis Conference — Male germ cells: from stem cells to diseases
08 Oct 2023 - 11 Oct 2023 • Dubrovnik, Croatia
Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
Abstract:
The germline provides an eternal cellular link between generations and is the source of genetic diversity and evolution of animal populations. In addition, perturbations in the epigenome or genome of a parental germline that arise during development could be underlying causes of many disease states in offspring. In males, sperm are the conduit for transmission of genetic and epigenetic information to the next generation and are formed by the complex process of spermatogenesis, which involves undifferentiated stem cell, differentiating, meiotic, and morphogenesis phases. This workshop will explore recent advances in understanding the biology of these different phases in a variety of animal models as well as how epigenetic and genetic abnormalities may underlie transmission of diseases and fertility disorder in humans. Invited talks and poster sessions that focus on cutting edge findings along with vibrant discussions and debates about controversies in the field will provide a rich intellectual atmosphere that is sure to have an important impact on how the biology of spermatogenesis is investigated for years to come.

4th Interventions in Aging Conference
11 Oct 2023 - 14 Oct 2023 • Dubrovnik, Croatia
Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
Abstract:
A plethora of genetic, dietary and pharmacological interventions can extend healthy lifespan in laboratory animals, and can delay or ameliorate diverse aging-related diseases. Mechanisms of aging are conserved in evolution, and discoveries made in animals are informing our understanding of human aging. This raises the intriguing possibility of performing preventative medicine against chronic and age-related diseases, by targeting their main risk factor, namely aging. Important current challenges in the field are (1) to understand the downstream pathways by which longevity interventions can combat age-related loss of function and pathology, (2) to evaluate the impact of regenerative interventions and cellular reprogramming on age-related diseases, and (3) to translate the findings into the extension of human health span.

Abstract:
The maintenance of genome integrity is critical for the suppression of several pathological disorders in humans, including cancer, infertility and neurodegeneration. Moreover, the accumulation of unrepaired errors in DNA is commonly cited as a likely cause of tissue and organismal ageing. Destabilization of the genome can occur as a result of several cell intrinsic or extrinsic factors, including errors arising during DNA replication or chromosome segregation, as well as exposure of cells to agents that induce DNA damage. In this conference, we aim to bring together scientists studying DNA replication, DNA repair and chromosome segregation with those interested in how chromosomal instability can influence human pathology. Moreover, we aim to show how high throughput and high content screening methods can be used as a discovery tool both for basic science applications and to identify potential therapeutic modalities.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Organoids: modelling organ development and disease in 3D culture
18 Oct 2023 - 21 Oct 2023 • Heidelberg, Germany
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Laboratory, EMBL Heidelberg
Abstract:
The ability to grow human tissues from stem cells in 3D culture has the potential to revolutionise the drug discovery process and regenerative medicine. Building on a long tradition of cell and developmental biology knowledge, organoids resembling a variety of human tissues have been generated. This conference will bring together the leading researchers in this field to establish a new research community and reveal parallels between various tissue models. The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers from different fields to enhance our understanding of how organoids can be formed and maintained, how they can be used to study disease and how we might eventually use them to regenerate and replace human organ tissue

EMBO Workshop: The mobile genome: genetic and physiological impacts of transposable elements
08 Nov 2023 - 11 Nov 2023 • Heidelberg, Germany
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Laboratory, EMBL Heidelberg
Abstract:
This conference provides a venue for cross-disciplinary discussions, with the goal of catalysing inter-disciplinary collaborations to address emerging questions in these scientific fields. Although often disparaged as “junk” DNA, it is now undeniable that transposable element (TE) activity has significantly shaped the structure and function of all genomes, ranging from bacteria to humans. TEs are major drivers of genetic diversity and contribute to human disease. Remarkably, recent research has shown that TE-derived sequences also can be co-opted by the host to play important roles in gene expression, early development, immunity, neuronal diversification, and, perhaps, aging.

9th International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues
16 Dec 2023 - 20 Dec 2023 • Waikoloa Beach, Hawaii, United States
Abstract:
The field of implant materials is now moving from static concepts to dynamic biomaterials that can adapt to stimuli from the living environment. It is an exciting time for biomaterial research. The same is true for robotics, as soft actuated and responsive materials pave the way for the rapidly emerging field of “soft robotics”, from the nano- to the macroscale. The 9th International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues provides a unique international forum for researchers and practicing engineers from different disciplines to interact and exchange their latest results.
