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 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.

Abstract:
The Gordon Research Seminar on Cartilage Biology and Pathology provides a unique platform for early career researchers to discuss their work with peers working in the global field. Organized and led by early-career scientists, this meeting provides an informal environment to generate meaningful discussion of cutting-edge research, and an opportunity to network with other trainees. The meeting will cover mechanisms underpinning cartilage development, maintenance, and disease, with a focus on the developmental origin of cartilage pathologies. Formation and preservation of healthy cartilage is crucial for many aspects of the human skeleton, including synovial joints, intervertebral discs, and growth plates. A deeper understanding of how the fine-tuning of cartilage growth in early life contributes to pathologic changes will serve to advance clinically unmet needs for both congenital- and age-related cartilage disease therapies. This two-day meeting will address these issues from multiple angles including biology, genetics, and tissue engineering with the hope of launching a progressive dialogue that advances the field through the sharing of data and establishment of international collaborations.

Gordon Research Conference — Cartilage Biology and Pathology
19 Mar 2023 - 24 Mar 2023 • Lucca (Barga), LU, Italy
Abstract:
The GRC on Cartilage Biology and Pathology covers a broad range of topics and new technologies as cartilage is not only the earliest skeletal tissue that supports skeletal development from embryos to adulthood, but also serves an essential skeletal component of a functional adult skeletal system. In this regard, diseases that result in cartilage malformation or degeneration significantly affect the lifespan and quality of life of a large part of the population. The GRC will highlight recent advances and challenges in understanding cartilage biology and diseases. Established scientists and talented new investigators will report and discuss their most recent exciting findings according to this theme and will provide insights into the remaining challenges towards understanding the various aspects of cartilage biology, disease, and translational approaches. We expect the 2023 GRC on Cartilage Biology and Pathology to empower researchers across disciplines to make significant progress towards understanding cartilage biology and improving human health.

Gordon Research Conference — Dendrites: Molecules, Structure and Function
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.

EMBO Lecture Course — Venice Summer School: The future of evolutionary-developmental systems biology
21 Aug 2023 - 25 Aug 2023 • Venice, Italy
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Any adequate theory of evolutionary change must cover both the sources and the consequences of phenotypic variation. On the one hand, we must understand the various processes—genetic, metabolic, physiological, developmental, and behavioral—that generate variation. On the other hand, we must understand the sorting processes that lead to the differential survival of different variants. The latter aspect is covered by traditional evolutionary genetics, with its well-developed set of concepts and models. In contrast, there seems to be no overarching theory or unifying framework able to explain the enormous diversity of processes generating variation. These processes are not only dauntingly complex, but also occur at many different levels of organization—from the molecular to the cellular, tissue, organ, organismic, and even supra-organismic levels (ecological or social). We could conclude from this that no theory of the sources of variation is possible, or we could call for a novel, empirically grounded, organismic systems biology that integrates philosophical, mathematical, and experimental approaches to tackle the issue. We will look at this project from a broad theoretical vantage point to assess the future of evolutionary and developmental systems biology.

EMBO Workshop — Inter-organelle contacts biology
01 Oct 2023 - 06 Oct 2023 • Fiuggi, Italy
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
For decades, studies in cell biology have focused on discovering the functions and dynamics of individual organelles. However, organelles do not exist only as single units, but also as part of entities formed through contacts between two or more distinct organelles. In fact, the recent years of studies on inter-organelle contacts have revealed that complex cellular functions, biochemical processes and signaling pathways are governed at the sites where heterotypic organelles come into contact with each other. This paradigm shift has spurred a new gold rush of research in cell biology that is transforming our understanding of cell physiology, signaling and metabolism in health and disease. This EMBO Workshop on inter-organelle contacts biology, now at its 3rd edition, aims at bringing together the community of scientists in this field to share their work, experience, expertise, and vision.
