Coming up next:
19 - 22 July 2020
This symposium will cover emerging key concepts of latent metastasis and dissemination of tumour cells including evolution and genetic diversity of metastasis, circulating tumour cells, stemness, dormancy and stromal reprogramming, transcriptional and epigenetic control, motility and invasive signaling, metastatic heterogeneity, EMT and plasticity, immune evasion and metabolic adaptations.
14 - 16 September 2020
The symposium will discuss recent advances in understanding the genetic mechanisms underlying sex differences in morphology, physiology and behavior, facilitated by modern genomics technologies.
14 - 17 September 2020
Bringing 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.
7 - 10 October 2020
Leaders in the RNA field, post-docs and students will come together for the latest research on transcription, RNA processing and modification, mRNA export and localisation, mRNA surveillance and decay, translation and the control of mRNA expression by microRNAs.
21 - 24 October 2020
This symposium will bring together researchers from different fields to enhance our understanding of how organoids can be formed and maintained, how they can be used to study disease and how we might eventually use them to regenerate and replace human organ tissue.
8 - 11 November 2020
This symposium aims to establish a cross-disciplinary forum discussing oscillatory and pulsatile phenomena that are abundant in nature. Accordingly, mixed sessions on mechanisms, functions, synchronisation, modelling and synthetic oscillators will each include presentations on a range of oscillators from different fields.
2 - 5 March 2021
This symposium will bring together researchers from different communities interested in processes occurring at the cell surface across kingdoms.
10 - 13 March 2021
The aim of this symposium is to bring together scientists studying genome maintenance and the DNA damage response with those investigating the biology of transcription and RNA, in order to discuss the mutual interactions of DNA and RNA metabolism.
17 - 20 March 2021
Synthetic morphogenesis is a novel and exciting field that requires collaboration among traditionally distinct scientific communities, from developmental biologists, to chemists and material scientists. This symposium will bring together scientists from these different disciplines to discuss the extent to which cells/tissues/organs can be built de novo starting from isolated components.
5 - 8 May 2021
This symposium will provide a forum for this emerging field of cell type and tissue origination in the single-cell genomics era. We will discuss fundamental questions such as the origins of cell types in the evolution of multicellularity, their diversification in divergent animal lineages and the molecular evolution of regulatory networks underlying the specification of cell types and tissues.
7 - 9 June 2021
This symposium aims to bring together a diverse group of scientists to discuss phenotypic, developmental and transgenerational plasticity from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives, focusing on its underlying molecular mechanisms and its role in driving evolutionary novelty.
6 - 9 July 2021
This symposium will cover a broad range of topics in prokaryotic biology, including antibiotic-related research, network biology, bacterial communities, cell biology, regulation & signalling, pathogenesis and evolution. Emphasis will be placed on novel approaches that drive each field or have the potential to revolutionise future research in microbiology.
1 - 4 September 2021
This symposium addresses how population genetic variation and the sequencing of ancient DNA have the potential to change the way we think about human history and our evolutionary past, and how we might study genetic variation in the future.
15 - 17 September 2021
This symposium will provide a platform for bringing together leading researchers from computational biology, various “omics” fields and technology development to present their latest work and discuss applications, future ideas and the challenges for integrating large-scale biological data across different biological technologies and disciplines.
5 - 9 October 2021
The symposium will bring together the leading developers of imaging methods with cutting edge applications that illustrate how imaging can answer biological questions. We will place emphasis on methods that are able to capture the dynamics of life, spanning the whole range from molecular resolution to imaging of whole organisms.
13 - 16 October 2021
This symposium will explore the diverse, dynamic and multifaceted roles of RNA across a spectrum of cellular processes. It will provide an interdisciplinary discussion of the roles of non-coding RNAs in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, with the aim of enhancing our understanding of gene regulation and function.
17 - 20 November 2021
Metabolism and epigenetics are intricately linked, playing key roles in development, cancer, immune signalling and aging. This symposium brings together world-leading researchers exploring this nexus and will focus in particular on how metabolites and metabolic networks impact gene regulation, on recently discovered roles of metabolites in disease and how this open novel therapeutic avenues.
