EMBO | EMBL Symposium: The Neurovascular Interface
14 Sep 2020 - 17 Sep 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Neurovascular biology is a young, emerging field that aims to unravel the molecular communication between the nervous system and the vasculature. Both the nervous system and the vascular system share striking conceptual similarities in the assembly of cellular networks through guided growth and branching processes. Vascular and neural cells work together to form a number of functional tissue compartments. Endothelial cells, certain mural support cells (i.e., pericytes), astrocytes and neurons assemble the neurovascular unit, which establishes the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers. In fact, many of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases and cognitive decline involve disruption of the neurovascular unit or compromised vascular function in the nervous system. It has become increasingly clear that the endothelium and mural support cells function go beyond nutrient supply and are instructive and structurally required to allow nervous system function. In this symposium, we bring together researchers from vascular biology and neurobiology to foster interdisciplinary exchange and new emerging concepts on how vascular and nervous systems crosstalk to maintain organ homeostasis and function.

ICON Europe 2020 — International Conference On Nanoscopy
28 Sep 2020 - 01 Oct 2020 • Jena, Germany
Organizer:
Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology Jena
Abstract:
The last two decades have seen the advent of a variety of super-resolution imaging techniques that provide spatial resolution well below the diffraction limit, approaching virtually molecular detail. Their widespread application is currently transforming biological research enabling new and exciting views on the structural organisation of cells and the dynamics of biomolecular assemblies on different timescales. These revolutionary developments come with novel requirements for fluorescent probes, labelling techniques, and data interpretation strategies. Researchers from across the scientific spectrum are involved in designing improved tools and solving previously intractable problems using super-resolution techniques. We invite you to attend the ‘International Conference On Nanoscopy 2020’, which will uniquely and exclusively focus on super-resolution microscopy and its biological application. Held in Jena, Germany in the summer of 2020, it will bring together an international group of experts to discuss the latest advances and future directions in the field.

EMBL Conference: Molecular Mechanisms in Evolution and Ecology
30 Sep 2020 - 03 Oct 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This conference series has become known for exploring yeasts as models to study questions of general relevance to evolution and ecology. Experts will speak on a range of topics, including evolution theory, ecology, genetics, cell biology, genomics, systems biology, metabolic modelling and engineering. The focus of this conference will be on comparative and experimental strategies to explore evolutionary questions, from field studies to computer simulations to comparative genomics. Central evolutionary questions will be discussed, using yeast and a range of other species whose biology is well understood and to determine the degree to which that biology is conserved in more distantly related species. The aim is to move from correlative studies based on comparative work to more causal studies based on broad experimental support. This problem is particularly pressing in the age of cheap and easy sequencing.

Cilia2020 — The 5th European Cilia Conference
06 Oct 2020 - 09 Oct 2020 • Cologne, Germany
Abstract:
Ground-breaking discoveries in cilia biology have revolutionized our understanding of the critical role of cilia in cell signalling, development, tissue homeostasis and disease. The field continues to grow rapidly as we realize that cilia are vital organelles participating in a broad range of biological processes. Cilia are antenna-like cell organelles that occur on almost all cells of the human body. Many serious diseases are directly attributable to cilia disorders. Despite intensive research, causative therapies are still lacking.

Cilia2020 brings clinicians and scientists together and also integrates patient participation.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: The Complex Life of RNA
07 Oct 2020 - 10 Oct 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Before the genetic information stored in DNA can be used to direct cell growth and metabolism, it has to be transferred into RNA. Messenger RNAs (mRNAs) that code for proteins and noncoding RNAs are key components in the transmission of genetic information in all life forms - from viruses to complex mammalian organisms. Exciting recent findings now reveal a new layer of information added to RNAs in the form of chemical marks (the epitranscriptome) that play a critical role in gene expression control. This remarkable complexity in the lives of RNAs will be discussed at this meeting.

EMBO Workshop: Neuroepigenetics: From Cells to Behaviour and Disease
28 Oct 2020 - 31 Oct 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Neuroepigenetics is a young field that is attracting a lot of attention. Genome-wide association studies and mouse models continue to discover new connections between chromatin regulators and neurodevelopmental disorders and epigenetic pathways have been implicated in various physiological and pathological aspects of brain function, such as memory formation and recovery, addiction and neurodegeneration. This conference aims to provide a gathering opportunity for researchers of all levels who are interested in how gene regulation participates in the development and function of the brain, with particular attention to the chromatin-based regulation of gene expression. The key objective is to bring together, in the same meeting, two groups of scientists: neuroscientists with interest in gene regulation and molecular biologists with strong expertise in the mechanisms of transcription and epigenetics that want to apply their knowledge to understanding how the brain works. We believe the two groups can learn a lot from each other and we hope this conference can function as a catalyst for scientific exchange and collaboration between them.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Biological Oscillators: Design, Mechanism, Function
09 Nov 2020 - 11 Nov 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Oscillations are abundant - from hormonal oscillations with periods of days and months, to genetic fluctuations in the range of hours (circadian clock, embryonic oscillators), and metabolic and biochemical oscillations in the order of minutes (glycolytic oscillations) and seconds (Calcium-dynamics) - oscillations are central to biology across different temporal and spatial scales. At this symposium multiple disciplines will come together in order to discuss common mechanisms underlying the generation of oscillations. This symposium aims to further strengthen a new, highly interdisciplinary community composed of scientists from very different fields and who share a common interest in oscillatory phenomena and biological dynamics. As such, this meeting provides a unique platform for this emerging new community working at the interface between quantitative biology, complex oscillatory systems and physics.

EMBL Conference: From Functional Genomics to Systems Biology
15 Nov 2020 - 18 Nov 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The main objective of this conference is to bring people together from diverse disciplines to exchange ideas, promote cross-disciplinary collaborations and to form a synthesis of appropriate systems-level approaches. The meeting is therefore purposely broad to cover all aspects of genomics to systems biology, a unique combination that is highly appreciated by the participants. Over the past decade, this EMBL conference has therefore served as an important venue in helping to shape the field, or to be more precise to help generate a community of scientists that come from very diverse disciplines, each with the common goal to understand the systems level properties of their system of interest.
