4th Bacterial Cell Biology
12 Feb 2023 - 15 Feb 2023 • Cancun, Mexico
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.

EMBL Conference — The new cardiobiology
20 Feb 2023 - 23 Feb 2023 • EMBL Heidelberg and Virtual, Germany
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Laboratory | EMBL
Abstract:
The cardiovascular system is a multicellular and disseminated organ consisting of the heart, a network of vessels and circulating blood, thereby forming an intricately interdependent system, whose dysfunction is the leading cause of human mortality. Despite translational progress with impactful new interventional and pharmacological therapies, cardiovascular dysfunction continues to plague mankind. The current therapeutic approaches are either organ-centric or tackle the consequences of end-stage cardiovascular disease (CVD). New basic research approaches are focused on a deeper understanding of the causes and early development of CVD to identify mechanisms close to the root of the disease, providing the promise to prevent, halt, and reverse the disease process. In parallel, new tissue engineering and mechanobiology approaches are revolutionizing cardiovascular discovery research and disease modeling by more closely mimicking the human situation. However, these are largely separated research communities, with yet little crosstalk or exchange between the two. This conference aims at transforming the established organ-centric view on single cardiovascular organs to a systems biomedicine approach by tearing down the walls between disciplines and instead discussing the cardiovascular system in an inter-, trans-, and cross-disciplinary approach.

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.

Engineering Life: Unifying concepts from system chemistry, biophysics and theoretical physics
13 Mar 2023 - 24 Mar 2023 • Munich, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics
Abstract:
Life, as we know it today, is characterized by a set of biophysical properties that include the ability to grow, divide and replicate, and evolve in complexity via selection and distinction. From a chemical perspective, such processes are realized by chemical reactions and assembly processes that turnover reactants, and this turnover is driven by the supply of mass and energy. From a theoretical perspective, this supply maintains the system away from thermodynamic equilibrium leading to continuous fluxes of energy and mass, even in the stationary state of the system. To engineer living systems or specific life-like processes, unified approaches are necessary that incorporate concepts from biophysics, system chemistry, and theoretical physics. This workshop aims to bring together scientists from these three fields to discuss the current challenges to engineering life-like processes. The workshop will provide a collaborative environment that includes plenary talks on the question “What is life?” and the related challenges to engineering it. Moreover, there will be sessions with interactive short talks and brainstorming sessions with plenty of time to freely gather and develop novel approaches to how to engineer life.

UBQ — Designing Molecular Glues
22 Mar 2023 • Online, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
Cambridge Healthtech Institute
Abstract:
Hetero-bifunctional protein degraders like proteolysis targeting chimeras (PROTACs) have found their way into the clinic by utilizing the body’s natural disposal system to tag and degrade unwanted proteins implicated in various diseases. These degraders are large molecules consisting of a E3 binding ligand and a ligand binding the target protein, coupled together by a linker. On the other hand, monovalent degraders or molecular glues consist of a single degrader molecule that attaches to both the E3 ligase and target protein and tend to be smaller and more drug-like. These glues have been discovered serendipitously in the past, however recently, there are efforts being made to try and design them more rationally. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s inaugural virtual conference discusses some of these innovative design strategies and screening methods to discover and optimize molecular glues for therapeutic purposes. The conference features live talks given by experts and includes online discussions for active networking and idea-generation.

IUBMB-EMBO Focused Meeting on Emerging Concepts of the Neuronal Cytoskeleton — 6th Edition
26 Mar 2023 - 30 Mar 2023 • Santa Cruz, Chile
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Cytoskeletal dynamics is at the core of the most essential questions in cellular neurobiology, such as mechanisms of axon growth in development and in response to injury, or mechanisms of synapse formation and stabilization. It is also a key element of intracellular transport, which is critical for axonal development and neurotrophic signaling, but which is also disrupted in many, if not all neurodegenerative diseases. Consequently, the cytoskeleton in neurons is a promising and emerging target for the development of novel therapeutic approaches to treat neurodegenerative diseases and to promote axon regeneration after traumatic injury. Recent advances in imaging, genetics and cell-molecular biology have catalyzed exciting new progress. However, fundamental questions about how neuronal cytoskeletal assembly, functions and dysfunction is orchestrated remain unanswered. In this workshop we will explore the latest findings on this exciting topic and will address several features involved in cytoskeleton function in nerve cells such its role in trafficking and transport, neuronal polarity, axonal guidance and neuronal migration.

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 Practical Course — Measuring translational dynamics by ribosome profiling
26 Mar 2023 - 01 Apr 2023 • Heidelberg, Germany
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Regulation of translation is key in the control of gene expression, playing a critical role in many biological and pathophysiological settings. In the last decade, methodological advances have provided comprehensive insights into cellular transcriptomes and proteomes, however, the systems-wide analysis of translation remained an unsolved experimental challenge. The advent of ‘ribosome-profiling’ provided the methodological basis for comprehensive transcriptome-wide analyses of translation at sub-codon resolution by the precise and high-throughput determination of ribosomal positions on mRNA. Its application in a variety of organisms yielded novel insights into protein synthesis and its dynamic regulation, significantly advancing our understanding of the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression.

EMBO Lecture Course — Tumour metabolism: Current understanding and opportunities for novel drug discovery
28 Mar 2023 - 31 Mar 2023 • Noida – hybrid, India
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
The unique glycolytic behaviour is present in nearly all cancer cell types. Cancer cells quickly adapt and reprogram glucose metabolism to meet their bioenergetic and biosynthetic requirements for growth and survival. A key to developing novel and effective cancer therapies is to tackle the complex metabolic ecosystem that cancer and stroma cells establish within the tumour microenvironment. This metabolic ecosystem ensures the high demand of energy and essential nutrients for tumour progression. Research on the distinct metabolic phenotype of cancer cells compared to normal cells is growing steadily to target metabolic vulnerabilities for new therapeutics in cancer. This India I EMBO Lecture Course will bring together eminent researchers and experts across the disciplines of cancer and molecular biology, structural biology, bioinformatics, medicinal chemistry and drug discovery, to share the recent advances, challenges, and opportunities in the field of tumour metabolism and drug discovery.

EMBO Workshop — ImmunoBiophysics: From fundamental physics to understanding the immune response
09 Apr 2023 - 14 Apr 2023 • Les Houches – hybrid, France
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Immune cells respond in a coordinated way to protect us from harmful pathogens like viruses and bacteria. The responses are mediated largely through direct cell-cell contacts, which allow cells to exchange biochemical signals and mechanical inputs. The contribution of mechanical forces to molecular and cellular function has fascinated biologists and physicists alike for more than a decade, and in recent years it has become evident that mechanical forces are fundamental to immune cell function. This workshop aims to address the important challenge of bridging the gap between molecular and cellular scales processes driving immune cell mechanotransduction. Motivated by exciting developments in the field, this EMBO Workshop, “ImmunoBiophysics #2: From fundamental physics to understanding the immune response” will focus on the immune response from a distinctly physical and mechanical perspective, bringing together experimentalists and theoreticians coming from both the physical and life science communities. Building on the highly successful virtual “ImmunoBiophysics” workshop held in 2021, this hybrid EMBO Workshop will promote collaborations on this emerging topic and foster a new transdisciplinary perspective

EMBO Workshop — FERROPTOSIS: When metabolism meets cell death
23 Apr 2023 - 27 Apr 2023 • Seeon, Germany
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Ferroptosis is a regulated necrotic cell death modality which is now recognized as an evolutionary vulnerability caused by the incorporation of oxidation-prone polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) into cellular membranes. This metabolic cell death process provides the framework to understand the basic biological phenomena of how cells restrain, repair and adapt to phospholipid damage through changes in cellular plasticity. A close interplay between cellular metabolism and ferroptosis was established with phospholipid repair linked to numerous metabolic networks including amino acids, glutathione biosynthesis, NAD(P)H and PUFA metabolism, iron handling and the mevalonate pathway. Notably, this complex network has been found to be dysfunctional in different pathological contexts. This EMBO workshop will bring together scientists from different disciplines interested in the molecular mechanisms linked to ferroptosis, such as lipid signalling, redox chemistry, drug discovery, tumour biology, degenrative diseases, medicine and inflammation, and related experts in cell metabolism. This highly interdisciplinary meeting will promote the exchange of ideas and stimulate a critical assessment of the state-of-the-art between students, postdocs and leading researchers from different fields worldwide.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium — Brain genome: regulation, evolution, and function
25 Apr 2023 - 28 Apr 2023 • EMBL Heidelberg and Virtual, Germany
Abstract:
This symposium explores the many ways by which the genome is regulated in the brain in order to support neural function and plasticity. The extraordinary complexity of the brain places unique demands on the genome: How are several hundreds of different neural types specified by the same genetic instructions? Does the genome provide information that guides their connectivity? How is neural activity regulated by and how does it affect genome output? We will explore these fundamental questions from the standpoint of transcriptional regulation and chromatin-based processes, including but not limited to histone marks and variants, chromatin topology and folding, coding and noncoding RNAs, transposable elements, and DNA modifications. The conference aims to bring together neuroscientists and experts in genome regulation. It will cover a broad range of experimental approaches and model systems, from biochemistry to single-cell genomics, from worms to human organoids. Overall, the conference will address the impact of genome regulation on unique features of the brain — its excitable nature, exquisite response to the environment and parallel processing capacity — with the longer-term vision of understanding how defective genome regulation can give rise to brain disease.
Topics:
Interplay between gene regulation and neuronal activity, Genomic regulation of brain plasticity and behaviour, Chromatin variations in the brain, From one genome to many neurons: neurodevelopment and neural diversity

3rd Neuroepigenetics & Neuroepitranscriptomics Conference
28 Apr 2023 - 01 May 2023 • Riviera Maya, Mexico
Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
Abstract:
Epigenetic mechanisms - including DNA and histone modifications, as well as regulation by non-coding RNAs - have pivotal roles in the nervous system. Aberrant epigenetic regulation also contributes to pathogenesis in various brain disorders. There are a number of recent ground-breaking discoveries of new features of epigenetic marks and regulation that are enriched in the nervous system, leading to an emerging new field of “neuroepigenetics”. In addition, new discoveries of modification of mRNAs and long non-coding RNAs lead to a new field of “epitranscriptomics”. This meeting will bring together experts and pioneers in studying neuroepigenetics and epitranscriptomics to provide an up-to-date and comprehensive picture of epigenetic and epitranscriptomic mechanisms in neural development, reprogramming and cell identity, plasticity, neuronal function and dysfunction. The meeting will offer opportunity for interdisciplinary interactions and future collaborations.

Balancing Genome Fidelity and Plasticity
04 May 2023 - 07 May 2023 • Riviera Maya, Mexico
Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
Abstract:
While alterations to DNA underlie genome evolution and antibody diversification, genome instability drives many disorders, including cancer, developmental abnormalities, and neurodegeneration. DNA damage and other genome-threatening replication blocks are generally overcome by a number of DNA repair pathways. The choice of DNA repair pathways, specifically the reliance on error-prone vs. error-free is both intriguing and confounding. Moreover, the deregulation of repair pathway choice can trigger pathological processes. In this conference, we will discuss the delicate equilibrium of genome maintenance pathways, addressing how natural processes such as replication and transcription can threaten genome stability, how the genome can be altered in cancer, signatures of genome instability in human disease, and how cells control the inherent plasticity of their replication and repair machinery. We aim to bring together scientists from diverse fields who are interested in understanding the many processes impacting DNA metabolism and the molecular and biophysical principles that maintain the balance between genome stability and plasticity.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium — The organism and its environment
09 May 2023 - 12 May 2023 • EMBL Heidelberg and Virtual, Germany
Abstract:
We are at the dawn of a new era of biology where we will start to understand how organisms function together and react or adapt to changes at different molecular levels. This includes the multitude of stresses that organisms are exposed to, from malnutrition and adverse climate events to many other biological, chemical and physical insults. Progress in biological analyses at both a single scale and across scales, have allowed us to further understand organisms in the context of dynamic environments. These can be environments which are changed by disease, commensal cohabitation or competition, as well as abiotic factors. With the molecular understanding we already have at the cellular and organismal levels, and new tools and quantitative approaches, this symposium will address how genotype and the environment bring about phenotypes at the population level.

EMBO Workshop — Non-coding RNA medicine
15 May 2023 - 18 May 2023 • Poznan, Poland
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
The discovery of myriad noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) over the past decade has revealed a universe of new and exciting therapeutic opportunities. Many thousands of microRNAs, piRNAs, circular RNAs, long noncoding RNAs, and others are expressed across healthy and diseased human tissues and play key functional roles in pathogenic states and processes. Their regulatory roles, cell-type-specificity, and vast numbers confer on ncRNAs unique advantages as therapeutic targets. Rapid advances in clinical transcriptomics, oligonucleotide therapeutics, and RNA-directed small molecules, open the possibility for rapid, economical, and personalised ncRNA-directed therapies. Reaching this goal will require overcoming key challenges, including low evolutionary conservation in model species, poorly-characterised molecular mechanisms, finding hits amongst the vast ncRNA transcriptome, and effectively drugging targets in vivo.

EMBO Workshop — Cell polarity and membrane dynamics
21 May 2023 - 26 May 2023 • Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Girona, Spain
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Cell polarization is an essential first step for many biological processes ranging from cell motility to tissue and organism morphogenesis. At the same time, cell polarization requires a precise control of their internal organization, which is the result of a complex dynamic interplay between the cytoskeleton, molecular motors, signaling molecules, and membranes. Recent technological advances have helped obtaining valuable new information on the different temporal and spatial scales that govern cell polarization. We have obtained structures of membrane-localized protein complexes, demonstrated the emergent self-organizing properties of proteins and cellular systems and shed light on how to modulate the shape of membranes and tissues to build entire tissues or organisms. To develop a mechanistic understanding of these processes, we need to integrate our existing knowledge on cell polarization, from the tissue level down to individual molecules, obtained from minimal reconstituted systems to whole animals, from experimental and theoretical approaches. This EMBO Workshop will bring together a highly diverse group of scientists (cell & structural biologists, (bio)chemists, experimental & theoretical physicists) to present the state-of-the-art of their fields, to exchange ideas, and to identify synergies between them to establish new collaborations and open new research fields.

EMBO Workshop — RNA meets protein decay
24 May 2023 - 27 May 2023 • Cavtat, Croatia
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
RNA and protein degradation play critical roles during dynamic proteome remodeling in response to developmental and environmental cues. Although RNA and protein degradation pathways have often been investigated in isolation, there is a growing interest in understanding how RNA decay and protein degradation systems interact and cooperate to shape both the RNA and protein landscape within cells and tissues. For example, an explosion of recent research has demonstrated that RNA decay and protein degradation cooperate when ribosome progression is halted to facilitate removal of potentially toxic mRNA and/or protein species. Further, regulating the abundance of either RNA or cognate RNA binding proteins can alter the behavior of highly dynamic macromolecular assembles that can form liquid-like condensates and have been linked to various human pathologies. The purpose of this EMBO Workshop is to bring together experts in the RNA decay and protein degradation fields to report on our current understanding of RNA and protein degradation pathway intersections, discover common principles, and share technical expertise on best practices to interrogate RNA or protein turnover.

EMBO Workshop — European testis workshop 2023
18 Jun 2023 - 22 Jun 2023 • Montreux, Switzerland
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Advanced reproductive technologies, such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection, have revolutionized reproductive medicine by enabling effective fertilization without the need to understand the cause of infertility. However, declining male fertility persists in many countries, and growing evidence suggested that the reproductive health of fathers affects their children’s health, calling for continuing investigation of the underlying mechanisms. The main themes of this EMBO Workshop are the male reproductive system, testis development, and sperm formation in mammals, including humans and animal models. Reflecting the multifaceted nature of male reproduction and discoveries made by increasingly advanced experimental techniques, the three broad topics further branch into sub-topics including genetics, epigenetics, immunity, lifestyle influences, toxicity, immunology, and endocrinology. Clinically relevant topics—semen function, sperm physiology, reproductive technologies, and fertility preservation—are also incorporated. This EMBO Workshop aims to bridge the knowledge gap in male reproduction, facilitate networking among research groups with different expertise, and promote the translation of fundamental research in male reproduction into diagnoses and therapies.

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.

UBQE — Next Generation Degraders and Glues
20 Jun 2023 - 22 Jun 2023 • London, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Cambridge Healthtech Institute
Abstract:
The ubiquitin-proteasome, lysosome and autophagy systems are all well-controlled, selective degradation pathways that are key cellular regulators in cancer, CNS, and other diseases. A new generation of hetero bi-functional chimeras and small molecule monovalent degraders are being developed to hijack these systems for targeted protein degradation or stabilization. These molecules that include Proteolysis-targeting chimeras (PROTACs) and molecular glues are being used to seek out previously “undruggable” targets for therapeutic intervention. However, challenges do exist in terms of specificity, stability, biodistribution and penetration of these degrader molecules. This conference on Next-Generation Degraders & Glues brings together experts in the field to discuss these new therapeutic modalities, as well as issues underlying the use of targeted degradation as a new therapeutic approach.

EMBO Workshop — Eukaryotic RNA turnover and viral biology
20 Jun 2023 - 23 Jun 2023 • Brno , Czech Republic
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Postponed from 21.09.2021–24.09.2021

Viruses are major human pathogens that cause a wide range of infectious diseases, representing a constantly recurring challenge to the health of individuals and the functioning of human society. Only a profound understanding of viral biology will provide the basis for developing and improving antiviral therapies. While RNA turnover has long been studied in the context of cellular gene regulation and quality control mechanisms, the interplay between RNA turnover and viral life cycles is only now emerging as a key component of virus-host interactions. For example, Herpes viruses, Poxvirus, Influenza virus and SARS-Coronavirus encode ribonucleases that cleave host mRNA and thereby support virus reproduction. Flaviviruses such as Dengue virus, West Nile virus and Hepatitis C virus encode a non-coding RNA that blocks Xrn1, a major cellular exoribonuclease, as a means to escape from an antiviral activity. The endonuclease RNase L is another component of the mammalian antiviral defense system, highlighting the importance of ribonucleases in the encounter of viruses with their host cells.

This EMBO Workshop will bring together molecular biologists working on basic mechanisms controlling RNA turnover with virologists exploring RNA turnover in the context of virus-host interactions, and propel the scientific exchange in this emerging area of research.

EMBO Workshop — Antibodies and complement: Effector functions, therapies and technologies
27 Jun 2023 - 01 Jul 2023 • Girona, Spain
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
The antibody response and the complement system are major effector arms of the immune system. Next to their beneficial roles in host defense, antibodies and complement are also involved in a plethora of pathological conditions—including autoimmunity, allergy and cancer—and regulate, mainly through their receptors (FcR and CR respectively) cell activation, migration, survival but also metabolism. As the portfolio of antibody—and complement-effector function grow, high-end technological solutions are developed, and novel therapeutic applications are proposed. This EMBO Workshop on Antibody & Complement will be a forum for leaders in the field and new investigators coming from academia, industry and research institutes to discuss where the field is going and what challenges lie ahead. We will focus attention on key advances in both fields with the aim at fostering discussions between antibody experts and complement experts.

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.

Timescales of Plasticity and Underlying Mechanisms
10 Jul 2023 - 13 Jul 2023 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
A long-standing question in the neurobiology of learning is that of timescales. The brain can associate events that are separated by seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, or longer. Yet, the known biological mechanisms for inducing changes in the synaptic connections between neurons are driven by neural events that are separated by typically no more than a few tens or hundreds of milliseconds. This conference will convene scientists studying the molecular, cellular, and circuit-level mechanisms used by the brain to bridge the multiple timescales across which events play out in the experience of an individual. The goal will be to assemble an up-to-date understanding of the set of biological mechanisms available in the brain to support associative learning across different timescales. The conference's emphasis on biological mechanisms will complement and support the main program’s more computational focus, and encourage an integrated analysis of statistical learning spanning molecular, cellular, circuit, and behavioral-level phenomena.

Abstract:
Recent progress in biology has led to an explosion of factual knowledge about the living world over a huge range of scales in space and time. Yet, many questions about how to make sense of this data remain across the entire diversity of the living world from the smallest bacterium to the ecosystems of the Serengeti. This meeting aims to bring together a diverse collection of researchers interested in finding ways to parlay this ever-increasing factual knowledge into a corresponding array of conceptual knowledge. The goal of this symposium is to assemble an interdisciplinary community and to provide a platform to discuss perspectives on the role of theory in biology, and importantly also vice versa, the impact that biology can have on theory.

Biophysical Society Conference — Proton Reactions: From Basic Science to Biomedical Applications
20 Aug 2023 - 24 Aug 2023 • Tahoe, California, United States
Organizer:
BPS - The Biophysical Society
Abstract:
A vast number of biologically important enzymes, transporters, and other molecules require the participation or transport of protons. Because the proton is unique in many respects, its properties and reactions are often quite distinct from those of other ions. Our goal is to include a truly international spectrum of speakers and attendees. The invited speakers include chemists, structural biologists, and physiologists whose expertise encompasses a wide range of topics that are all related to the proton. We hope to encourage new understandings on levels from basic science to biomedical applications.

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 — DNA topology and topoisomerases in genome dynamics
03 Sep 2023 - 07 Sep 2023 • Les Diablerets, Switzerland
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Following the elucidation of the structure of DNA, it was clear that the iconic double helical structure of DNA would impact and impede the fundamental genomic transactions required for cellular life. Even after 70 years of research, novel roles for DNA topology and topoisomerase action in transcriptional control, chromosome structure, anti-viral responses and genome stability are still being uncovered. We are also still deciphering how many chemotherapeutics target topoisomerases and DNA topology impacted processes. The EMBO workshops on DNA topology and topoisomerases bring together scientists who have only recently discovered the importance of DNA topology in their specialties with long standing researchers in the field. This generates a vibrant interdisciplinary meeting, which highlights and disseminates work involving diverse and rapidly evolving approaches. This workshop highlights studies using techniques as varied as single molecule physics and structural biology, pan-genomic analysis of chromosome structure and chromatin composition and live cell single particle tracking to uncover new findings on the nature of DNA topological transactions and how they impact cellular processes.

EMBL Conference — Protein synthesis and translational control
06 Sep 2023 - 10 Sep 2023 • EMBL Heidelberg and Virtual, Germany
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Laboratory | EMBL
Abstract:
Mechanisms that shape cellular proteomes are critical for life. This conference focuses on the process of protein synthesis, from the molecular and structural understanding of the translational machinery to its regulation, its implications in cell and organismal biology, and its alteration in disease. The regulation of mRNA translation is critical to maintain cell homeostasis and mediates cellular responses to environmental, physiological, and pathological cues. Given the central importance of protein synthesis, it is unsurprising that dysregulation or defects in mRNA translation are widely linked to disease, including cancer, neurological or metabolic disorders, and viral infection. In recent years, technical advances have challenged hitherto established dogmas, uncovered new quality control mechanisms, expanded the breath of translation regulators, enhanced our understanding of the dynamics of translation in living cells, and revealed unexpected interconnections with other cellular processes such as metabolism. Advances on these aspects of mRNA translation will be featured, as well as new insights into translation regulation in physiology and disease.

EMBO Workshop — The evolution of animal genomes
18 Sep 2023 - 21 Sep 2023 • Seville, Spain
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Genome evolution represents the basis of species adaptation to changing environments and habitats. Recent breakthroughs in sequencing technologies resulted in the acquisition of complete genome information for an increasing number of animal species, propelling the field of evolutionary genomics into a new era of discovery. Yet, our limited capacity to interpret genome variation hinders our understanding on how phenotypical changes drive adaptation. This urges the development of novel strategies to reconcile genomic sequence and function, for which a proper integration of cell-specific gene programs, non-coding regulation and 3D chromatin organization becomes essential. Further, establishing causal relationships between genome mutations and phenotypes still remains a major challenge in the field. Within this context, novel synthetic biology approaches are emerging as a means to understand developmental processes in the context of evolution. The aim of this EMBO workshop is to bring together international scientists with distinct, but complementary expertises on interpreting genome variation, on mechanisms of gene regulation and on in vivo synthetic biology approaches. This allows a comprehensive overview that goes from fundamental principles encoded in genomes to their ultimate biological significance on the formation of living, evolving organisms.

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.

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.

3rd Chromosomal Instability as a Driver of Human Disease Conference
14 Oct 2023 - 17 Oct 2023 • Dubrovnik, Croatia
Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
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 Practical Course — FISHing for RNAs: classical to single molecule approaches
22 Oct 2023 - 27 Oct 2023 • EMBL Heidelberg, Germany
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Over the past decades it became evident that a RNA transcripts specific amount and localisation are important in order to understand the biological function of its (non-) coding gene. Whereby state-of-the-art in situ hybridisation (ISH) technologies are key to visualise these RNAs in a given tissue or cell. This course aims to highlight three powerful RNA visualisation techniques in histological tissue samples. During this course, the participants will learn to validate the cellular localisation of candidate genes from transcriptome studies through conventional ISH and, the more recent cutting-edge, smFISH (Single Molecule Fluorescent ISH) and HCR-ISH (Hybridization Chain Reaction), based RNA ISH hybridisation methods. Additionally, the course will also cover essential tissue embedding protocols that are adapted for use in visually interrogating RNA transcripts in mammalian tissues.
