Gordon Research Seminar — Neural Crest and Cranial Placodes
25 Feb 2023 - 26 Feb 2023 • Lucca (Barga), LU, Italy
Abstract:
The focus of this meeting is to discuss the recent research in the field of evolution, development, disease, and regeneration of the neural crest and placodes. Presentations and poster sessions will be by led and showcased by early career researchers, setting a unique forum to present and exchange cutting edge research and new data, amongst PhD students and post-docs. The topics will feature, but are not limited to, gene regulation, tissue morphogenesis, signaling pathways mediating molecular, cellular and patterning events, stem cell biology, tissue repair and disease. The meeting will end with a mentorship session that aims to help the career development of junior scientists.
Topics:
Roles for Neural Crest Cells and Cranial Placodes in Vertebrate Development, Evolution and Diseaseon

Gordon Research Seminar — Plant-Herbivore Interaction
25 Feb 2023 - 26 Feb 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
Plant-herbivore interactions have evolved in response to co-evolutionary dynamics and selection driven by abiotic conditions. The seminar will discuss the latest technological and theoretical advances aiming to unravel the evolutionary forces that determine plant-herbivore interactions, their context-dependency and potential applications to protect natural ecosystems and generate more sustainable agricultural practices. In the context of our unprecedent climate crisis, global warming is expected to affect plant interactions with beneficial and antagonistic herbivores. The GRS 2023 specifically welcomes contributions on the complexity of plant-herbivore interactions at both individual and community levels in our rapidly changing environment. Finally, in addition to the sessions dedicated to oral and poster presentations, the 2023 GRS will offer a mentoring session where young researchers will have the opportunity to discuss career planning, oriented towards academia or the private sector, with experienced researchers.

Gordon Research Conference — Neural Crest and Cranial Placodes
26 Feb 2023 - 03 Mar 2023 • Lucca (Barga), LU, Italy
Abstract:
The Neural Crest and Cranial Placodes GRC is a premier, international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide, concentrating on the latest developments in the field. The conference is five days long and held in a remote location to increase the sense of camaraderie and create scientific communities, with lasting collaborations and friendships. In addition to premier talks, the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages, and afternoon free time and communal meals allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field.

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.

Inside Out: New Frontiers in the Comparative Physiology of the Vertebrate Gut
25 Jun 2023 - 28 Jun 2023 • Wiston House, West Sussex, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The Company of Biologists Ltd
Abstract:
This Workshop will bring together experts from a wide range of disciplines to examine the functioning of the vertebrate gastro-intestinal tract though the lens of integrative physiology. Until recently, the gut was the poor relation to other exchange sites with the environment (lungs, gills, and kidneys) in terms of scientific investigation. Indeed, it received scant attention from most comparative physiologists apart from the routine (but questionable) practice of starving their test animals prior to experimentation “so as to standardize their metabolic physiology”. However, many young researchers entering the field of gastro-intestinal physiology have radically altered the landscape, and many established researchers are now switching their focus to this area. Of particular significance has been the recent explosion of research on the importance of the microbiome for digestive health, not only in humans but in animals in general. The gastro-intestinal field is rapidly expanding, and now is a very appropriate time for the cross-disciplinary fertilization that this workshop will encourage.
