Keystone Symposia: Frontiers of Serotonin Beyond the Brain
12 Nov 2017 - 15 Nov 2017 • Park City, United States
Abstract:
Serotonin is a multifunctional signaling molecule that plays extra-cerebral roles, not only in adult life but in development as well. Although research concerning extra-cerebral serotonin is growing rapidly and interest in the subject is great, the physiological control and underlying molecular processes, as well as the involvement of peripheral serotonin in disease, have not been definitively established. Furthermore, the role of serotonin in peripheral tissues, has been neglected and under-represented at current meetings, which have focused on the 3-5% of the body’s serotonin that is present in the central nervous system. Therefore, this Keystone Symposia meeting aims to reveal insights into the role of serotonin in peripheral tissues, specifically in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of many diseases, which is long overdue.

NAI — New Approaches for Investigating Nascent Peptide Folding
11 Dec 2017 - 13 Dec 2017 • Cambridge, United Kingdom
Abstract:
This timely meeting investigates new methodologies for studying the early folding profiles of nascent proteins as they are being synthesised by ribosomes. With growing evidence, supported by several high impact publications in the last few months, that the vast majority of proteins fold into their native structures before they are released by the ribosome, this meeting aims to discuss protein folding and how it is inherently coupled to protein synthesis and chain elongation. The efficiency of these folding and targeting mechanisms is imperative to the smooth running of cellular processes.

With an introductory talk discussing how high resolution structures of the ribosome have revealed exciting information about the molecular basis of protein synthesis, given by Nobel Laureate and President of the Royal Society, Professor Venki Ramakrishnan, this will be an excellent opportunity to network and meet to discuss research.

Keystone Symposia: State of the Brain - Genetic Dissection of Brain Circuits and Behavior in Health and Disease
14 Jan 2018 - 18 Jan 2018 • Keystone, United States
Abstract:
Identifying and understanding the building blocks of the nervous system and how they interact is a central focus of international efforts to understand the brain. Modern genetic approaches hold the promise of establishing an inventory of cell types, exploring mechanisms of cellular identity, developing tools for experimental manipulations, building a brain-wide cell type atlas, and providing the basis of establishing brain-wide connectivity atlases at cellular resolution. Understanding how diseases and disorders impact cells, synapses and circuitry is essential to guide the development of treatments and therapies. Creating such an atlas of genetically identified cell types and their connectivity will provide key data and knowledge for developing in silico reconstructions of brain circuitry and developing theories of brain structure and function. This conference brings together leading scientists from around the world to present the latest tools, techniques and discoveries in using genetic approaches to understand the cell types of the brain and their role in cognition, behavior and brain diseases and disorders.

Keystone Symposia: T Cell Dysfunction, Cancer and Infection
16 Jan 2018 - 20 Jan 2018 • Breckenridge, United States
Abstract:
T cell exhaustion is an acquired state of T cell dysfunction, associated with reduced T cell function, sustained expression of inhibitory receptors and a transcriptional state that is distinct from memory and effector T cells. T cell exhaustion is now recognized as a defining feature not only of chronic infections such as HIV, malaria and tuberculosis, but also of cancer. As a result, the search for effective approaches to reverse T cell exhaustion is the focus of immense therapeutic development. However, the similarities and differences between T cell dysfunction arising in chronic infection and tumors are not fully understood. Moreover, opportunities to identify new therapeutic approaches to reverse dysfunction based on parallels between the two disease states remain to be explored. This meeting will focus on the comparative biology and clinical therapeutics of T cell dysfunction in chronic viral infection and cancer. Drawing on leaders in fundamental T cell biology, computational science and clinical investigation, it will focus on common features and distinctive aspects of T cell dysfunction in cancer and chronic infection. The meeting will have broad relevance for T cell biology, tumor immunity, infectious disease and therapeutic development.

Keystone Symposia: Plant Signaling - Molecular Pathways and Network Integration
21 Jan 2018 - 24 Jan 2018 • Tahoe City, United States
Abstract:
Natural products, the structurally diverse family of small molecules produced by living organisms in an idiosyncratic fashion, have provided the basis for the majority of our therapeutic agents used to treat infectious diseases, cancer and immune disorders. Whole genome sequencing of producing organisms, especially bacteria and fungi, reveals that we have discovered only a fraction of these biosynthetically derived small molecules; a substantial fraction of natural product chemical space still represents “dark matter” (i.e., molecules predicted by bioinformatics analysis that have yet to be observed experimentally). Diversity springs from variations in genetically encoded biosynthetic enzymes, environmental stimuli that regulate expression of these genes and the inherent combinatorial expansion resulting from multi-enzyme biosynthetic pathways. Closing this gap between our current inventory and the genomic potential has become an important goal for basic and applied science; synthetic biology coupled with bioinformatic analysis has become the primary research tool for this effort. Bioinformatic mining continues to reveal the enzymes and pathways that nature uses, and synthetic biology has begun to reassemble or refactor these pathways to produce known and unknown products in new hosts. This conference brings together researchers in fields ranging from microbiology to botany, bioinformatics, gene synthesis and assembly, covering the spectrum from basic to industrial applications.

Keystone Symposia: Natural Products and Synthetic Biology - Parts and Pathways
21 Jan 2018 - 24 Jan 2018 • Olympic Valley, United States
Abstract:
Phenotypic plasticity is the quintessential characteristic of plant development and adaptation under fluctuating environments. This characteristic is the result of numerous signal sources (extra-, intra- and intercellular) being sensed, integrated and interpreted by a plethora of signaling components which are interacting in a highly coordinated manner. Recent advances in molecular biology, chemistry (i.e., chemical genetics and development of novel probes) and computational approaches (i.e., mathematical modeling and network reconstruction) have greatly facilitated the discovery of novel signaling pathways as well as providing detailed molecular mechanisms for key components of the existing signaling pathway. However, many have yet to be discovered. The conference features leaders in the plant signaling field and encapsulates the most recent advances in this field, from single molecule chemistry to large-scale network analysis, with an emphasis on research areas such as growth and development, environmental responses and biological interactions in both model and non-model plant species. Therefore, this meeting will bring together a diverse community of scientists to interact, collaborate and share novel ideas, leading to the translation of this knowledge into new applications. Ultimately, unraveling the complexity of plant signaling networks will be an important step forward in securing global food production.

Keystone Symposia: Bioenergetics and Metabolic Disease
21 Jan 2018 - 25 Jan 2018 • Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
Obesity and type 2 diabetes are major drivers of chronic disease and premature death. A promising strategy to reduce obesity and improve metabolic health is through promoting energy expenditure via thermogenesis, including obligatory (accompanies all metabolic processes) and facultative (adaptive) mechanisms. Obesity and insulin resistance also lead to profound metabolic changes in various cells/tissues that contribute to tissue dysfunction. This conference brings together basic and clinical researchers from industry and academia focused on the study of cellular and organismal energy metabolism in the context of metabolic disease. A variety of approaches and topics will be featured, including: basic mechanisms of mitochondrial and cellular energetics; the emerging role of brown and beige fat in adaptive thermogenesis; central regulation of energy expenditure; and the effects of exercise on muscle and whole-body metabolism. In addition to the plenary sessions, the meeting will feature workshops on emerging research areas and novel therapeutic opportunities. Overall, the goals of the conference are to: 1) Provide a cutting-edge understanding of the basic mechanisms that control cellular and whole-body energetics; 2) Discuss the physiological role of brown fat and other energy expenditure pathways in humans; 3) Consider novel strategies for increasing energy expenditure and combating metabolic disease; and 4) Engage attendees in critical discussions about important areas for future research.

Keystone Symposia: Ubiquitin Signaling
28 Jan 2018 - 01 Feb 2018 • Tahoe City, California, United States
Abstract:
These are exciting times for ubiquitin research: potential targets for small molecule inhibitors are emerging in a variety of human diseases and being exploited by the pharmaceutical industry. At the same time, new enzymes regulating ubiquitin modifications are still being discovered, and the complexity of ubiquitin modifications continues to increase with the emerging cross-talk between post-translational modifications. This conference will focus on the latest insights in the large area of cellular regulation mediated by ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like modifiers. Key goals are to provide overviews and updates on emerging frontiers, and encourage efforts to exploit the ubiquitin system to provide new treatments for human diseases. Rather than being organized around key enzymes in the cascade, sessions will focus on biological areas, ensuring a balanced mix of mechanistic and physiology aspects. The meeting will feature both key opinion leaders on ubiquitination who are known to present unpublished results and leading researchers from peripheral fields who will contribute new ideas. A short selection of company-associated academic speakers will provide insights into the translational opportunities in this area.

Keystone Symposia: Translational Systems Immunology
28 Jan 2018 - 01 Feb 2018 • Snowbird, Utah, United States
Abstract:
This conference will cover the exciting technology advances that are enhancing our ability to elucidate human immune function and networks as well as practical applications in drug and biomarker discovery and patient stratification. The meeting begins with a look at progress in human genetics and the use of sequencing to assign functional mutations to rare human immune phenotypes. The impact of common variants on immune function requires larger sample sizes, and speakers will cover how genome-wide high-throughput genomics in combination with detailed phenotyping and physiologically relevant perturbations are providing foundational data sets that allow an unbiased view of immune function in cells and tissues. Also discussed will be emerging computational and analytical methods that enable integration and interpretation of high-content molecular data. The meeting will then move on to look at the application of these technological advances, expanding investigation to study the immune response in tissues and organs to enable a deeper understanding of interaction between immune and non-immune cells and their respective roles in disease states. Critical to clinical progress is the translation of systems immunology research into novel therapies and diagnostic or prognostic tests. Sessions themed around infectious disease and vaccine development advances in immune-oncology and patient stratification in complex disease and treatment response aim to provide depth from foundational science to clinical translation. Finally, a key goal is fostering collaboration across disciplines and the development of novel ideas. The meeting will be relevant for immunologists, computational biologists and clinicians with an interest in molecular characterization of the immune system.

Evading cell death is a hallmark of cancer cells, which contributes to tumour growth and therapeutic resistance. But cancer cells also highjack mechanisms like protective autophagy or senescence to promote tumour growth. Cell death is an important determinant of the immune response to cancer, which may either increase the antitumour effect or promote tumour growth. The conference will cover exciting new insights into this highly-relevant field, so please join us in Amsterdam to be stimulated by the latest research updates! With its translational character, the conference has been designed for basic and translational cancer scientists, as well as oncologists who are interested in the multifaceted role of cell death in cancer.

Keystone Symposia: Frontiers in Islet Biology and Diabetes
04 Feb 2018 - 08 Feb 2018 • Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
Diabetes mellitus is a pandemic disease rooted in defects of multiple organs. Autoimmune destruction of pancreatic islet beta cells (type 1 diabetes) or relentless deterioration in beta cell function from excessive systemic insulin demand (type 2 diabetes) culminates in severe or lethal metabolic derangement. Inter-organ signaling has emerged as a crucial mechanism for achieving metabolic balance, including responses by peripheral insulin-target organs that, in turn, remotely regulate islet activity. This meeting will focus on crucial aspects of beta cell biology, including islet development, pancreas cellular plasticity, beta cell surrogate generation from stem cells, novel gene editing technologies, and immune-islet interactions, as well as translation of basic discoveries into novel therapeutic trials for diabetic patients. This meeting aims to encourage the presentation of novel concepts, foster useful interactions between participants from academia and industry, and accelerate interdisciplinary approaches in diabetes research.

3rd DNA Replication/Repair Structures and Cancer - Fusion Conferences
11 Feb 2018 - 15 Feb 2018 • Cancun, Mexico
Abstract:
The remarkable stability of the human genome is lost in cancer cells due to the failure of efficient and accurate repair in the context of oncogene-induced replication stress and elevated transcription. DNA replication is furthermore emerging as a surprisingly fragile and complex process requiring fork protection and restart, template-switching, R-loop resolution, gap-filling, and repair. Unresolved replication and repair intermediates signal apoptosis. The synthetic lethality and essentiality resulting from replication-repair stresses thus suggest repair inhibitors as tools to control pathway selection and damage outcomes and to design advanced therapeutics. The 3rd DNA Replication/Repair Structures & Cancer conference in February 2018 will focus on structural and mechanistic insights into dynamic protein, chromatin, DNA and RNA complexes acting in DNA replication and repair events relevant to cancer. Conference talks and discussions will center on developing an actionable mechanistic knowledge of DNA replication and repair stress responses suitable to guide advanced intervention strategies for cancer. The conference will emphasize an environment suitable for initiating productive collaborations. It will include vibrant informal and formal discussions together with informative talks and poster sessions. To include late-breaking advances and innovating new investigators, one or more talks for every session will be selected from submitted abstracts. Meeting attendance is limited.

25 Mar 2018 - 30 Mar 2018 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on DNA Damage, Mutation and Cancer is developed around the theme of exploiting fundamental knowledge to advance treatment and prevention. Rich and ever-increasing information is available on the specific mutations that are the molecular basis of cancer. Many mutations can be traced to specific types of damage to the DNA, while others arise from DNA replication errors or unknown causes. Technologies are being refined to determine the origins of these mutations, and monitor the accuracy and reproducibility of cancer genomic data. Biological and structural analyses can assess which mutations are functionally relevant. Specific mutations can confer vulnerabilities, making individual cancers more responsive to treatment with DNA damaging agents.

EMBL Conference: The Epitranscriptome
25 Apr 2018 - 27 Apr 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The regulation of the transcriptome is key to cellular processes that underpin cell biology, development and tissue function. All classes of cellular RNA are subject to posttranscriptional modification, be it by direct chemical modification, editing or non-templated nucleotide additions. Furthermore, regulatory RNA binding proteins and enzymes that can specifically recognise posttranscriptional RNA modifications have been identified. It is now emerging that the modification status of the transcriptome is dynamic and responsive to environmental/developmental cues. Together, this has elicited the realisation of an ‘epitranscriptome’ where posttranscriptional RNA modification coupled with recruitment of effector RNA binding proteins dynamically regulates genomic output and RNA function. Importantly, mutations in core-regulators of the epitranscriptome are causative in many human diseases or congenital disorders.

Adult Neurogenesis 2018
02 May 2018 - 04 May 2018 • Dresden, Germany
Abstract:
Adult neurogenesis is distinct from embryonic forms of neurogenesis in that neuronal development underlies extrinsic regulation, from physiological to pathological. This regulation targets different stages of neuronal development, between cell cycle entry and proliferation of radial glia-like stem cells to the lasting integration of the newly generated neurons. There are obvious feedback loops in that regulation of neurogenesis might alter behavior, which in turn acts back on adult neurogenesis. But how does this all work? How does regulation occur across scales? What constitutes ‘causes’ and ‘mechanisms’ in such complex system? The 2018 Adult neurogenesis meeting uses these key questions as entry point into discussions about how activity and development are linked in adult neurogenesis.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: DNA Replication: From Basic Biology to Disease
07 May 2018 - 10 May 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
There has been tremendous progress in the past few years regarding our understanding of DNA replication in eukaryotes, both yeast and mammals. Many important questions in the field are poised to be answered within the next decade. These include understanding DNA replication at the biochemical and three-dimensional protein structure levels. In addition, studies using high throughput technologies at the cellular and organismal levels are poised to answer how accurate replication of the genome is ensured by controlling origin firing in space and time. Several human diseases, including cancer, have already been linked to DNA replication stress, a term that refers to perturbations in DNA replication. Thus, a better understanding of how cells respond to DNA replication stress will help us understand disease development and responses to therapy. By bringing together experts in the basic biology of DNA replication and DNA replication stress, this symposium aims to fuel further progress in these important fields.

Mechanisms of Recombination 2018
20 May 2018 - 22 May 2018 • London, United Kingdom
Abstract:
Genetic recombination provides an important mechanism for the repair of chromosome breaks caused by DNA damage or replication fork demise. Defects in the recombination process have been linked to cancer predisposition, in particular breast cancers caused by mutations in BRCA1, BRCA2 and PALB2, and also acute leukemias associated with the rare genetic disease Fanconi anemia. Understanding precisely how recombination occurs is of interest to workers in the fields of meiosis, DNA repair, replication, chromosome architecture and interactions, and chromatin biology.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Biological Oscillators: Design Mechanism, Function
03 Jun 2018 - 05 Jun 2018 • 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.

Gordon Research Conference — Cyclic Nucleotide Phosphodiesterases
10 Jun 2018 - 15 Jun 2018 • Newry, ME, United States
Abstract:
The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on Cyclic-Nucleotide Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) will focus on efforts to develop the therapeutic potential of phosphodiesterase modulators while also highlighting new biology relevant to the PDEs. As the sole means for terminating the intracellular signals carried by ubiquitous second messengers cAMP and cGMP, the PDEs are uniquely positioned to regulate a host of signaling cascades involved in cell to cell communication, metabolism and gene regulation. Unique elements of the quaternary structure of each family has allowed for the generation of selective inhibitors despite the high level of sequence identity in the active site of the enzymes. Only two families, PDE 6 and 11, still await the development of useful preclinical tools/inhibitors and drug candidates are in or nearing human studies for PDE 1, 2,3,4,5, 9 and 10. Clinical data is accumulating on the effects of PDE 3, 4, 5, 9 and 10 inhibition although only the effects of PDE5 inhibition have been subject to extensive, albeit poorly undocumented, profiling.

Abstract:
The field of immunometabolism has thrived over the last decade, revealing not only the major roles played by immune cells in metabolic homeostasis but also the impact of metabolic pathways on immune cell function. As new discoveries continue to reveal the intricate links between immunology and metabolism, a key question arises: will our accumulated knowledge on immunometabolic deregulations translate into novel therapies for human diseases? During this Cell Symposium, you will hear about the latest advances in immunometabolism from physician-scientists, basic researchers and industry leaders. We will discuss how local and systemic metabolism are integrated at the cellular level to regulate immune cell function and we will focus on how novel insights into immunometabolism can be harnessed to advance and/or bolster therapeutic interventions in metabolic diseases, inflammation, autoimmunity, and cancer.

EMBL Conference: Microfluidics 2018: New Technologies and Applications in Biology, Biochemistry and Single-Cell Analysis
15 Jul 2018 - 17 Jul 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Microfluidics is a quickly growing, highly interdisciplinary field at the interface of physics, engineering, chemistry and biology. Over the past years microfluidic approaches have been used for a variety of applications, including nucleotide sequencing, functional genomics, single cell/ single molecule studies and diagnostics. Many of these applications, including next-generation sequencing devices, have been revolutionised by miniaturisation, paving the way for global gene analysis and hence transforming biology. In addition, working on the pico- to nanoliter scale not only allows a high degree of parallelisation, but also offers superb spatiotemporal control. Small objects such as cells, or even discrete parts thereof, can be exposed to unique conditions, facilitating entirely novel approaches in modern biology and chemistry.

EMBL Course: Cryo-Electron Microscopy and 3D Image Processing
02 Sep 2018 - 10 Sep 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Solving structures of large macromolecular assemblies to gain fundamental insights into biological mechanisms remains a major challenge in structural biology. Cryo-EM combined with image processing is currently undergoing what has been referred to as a “resolution revolution”, making it one of the most powerful techniques to address this challenge. It also has unique capabilities to obtain structural information in situ within complex environments, and to deal with heterogeneous samples. The methods are complex and under constant development, so in depth, advanced training of new users is essential to ensure future users can adapt new technologies to expand into new areas and solve new biological problems. This course provides the theoretical and practical training covering the full breadth of cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) techniques from sample preparation to data collection to image processing.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Principles of Chromosome Structure and Function
05 Sep 2018 - 08 Sep 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Chromosomes are arguabely one of the most important structures inside cells. Several meters of DNA are compacted into micrometer-sized assemblies in every human cell. Recent advances in our understanding of how this is achieved, and of its implications on nuclear functions, have been breathtaking. Instead of black boxes, or imaginary text-book style folding models, advanced imaging and genomics techniques have layed the foundation for the first well-informed molecular models of chromsomes. These portray chromosomes as largley self-organising entities of nucleosome-melts, organised by the universal SMC complexes and additional chromosomal proteins. Recent work culminated in the biochemical reconstitution of chromosome formation from defined components (Hirano).

10 Sep 2018 - 14 Sep 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
ATAC-Seq stands for Assay of Transposase Accessible Chromatin and is, despite its recent invention, already a widespread method to profile open chromatin on a genome-scale. The goal of this course is to teach the entire workflow of an ATAC-Seq experiment including library preparation, sequencing, data processing, and downstream analysis by addressing a real biological question that will be answered at the end of the course. We will start with the experimental ATAC-Seq protocol, highlighting the critical steps, potential pitfalls, and the most up-to-date tweaks to improve the quality of the results. After sequencing the samples we will go through the basic quality control and preprocessing steps using multiple analysis tools for next generation sequencing data. Finally, we will perform different types of analysis on the processed data, including visualisation, differential peak calling, and differential transcription factor activity profiling to come to a biological conclusion. In addition we will discuss recent advancements in technology development and algorithms for analysis and give an outlook on future perspectives and applications.

EMBL Course: Software Carpentry
15 Oct 2018 - 18 Oct 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Computation is an integral part of today's research as data has grown too large or too complex to be analysed by hand. An ever growing fraction of science is performed computationally and many wet-lab biologists spend part of their time on the computer. Many scientists struggle with this aspect of research as they have not been properly trained in the necessary set of skills. The result is that too much time is spent using inefficient tools when progress could be faster. This is a course for researchers in the life sciences who are using computers for their analyses, even if not full time. The target student will know a little bit of command line/programmatic computer usage, but not consider themselves an expert. A target student will have written a for loop in some language before, but will not know what git is (or at least not be very comfortable with advanced git usage).

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Systems Genetics: From Genotypes to Molecular Phenotypes to Complex Traits
24 Oct 2018 - 27 Oct 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Systems genetics is the extension of genetics to the system-level. It aims at understanding the relationship between genotypes and molecular phenotpes at the genome-scale, thus integrating genomics with large-scale molecular and phenotypic profiling. This opens the door to the investigating of the genetic basis of complex traits in a variety of model systems, from yeast growth phenotype to human disease. Taking advantage of natural genetic variation allows to investigate the effect of many mild genetic perturbations, an approach which contrasts with the all-or-none targeted genetic perturbations.

EMBL Science and Society Conference: Infectious Diseases: Past, Present, and Future
15 Nov 2018 - 16 Nov 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
An astronomical number of microbes live in and on our bodies. They are normally harmless and help our body perform vital tasks, but some can cause disease, spread from person to person, and even result in full-blown epidemics. Infectious diseases are caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that infiltrate the body’s natural barriers and multiply to produce illnesses, which can range from mild to deadly. Although progress has been made to treat many infectious diseases, humankind is constantly vulnerable to a wide array of both resurgent and new microorganisms.
