Coming up next:

The Identity and Evolution of Cell Types

15 - 18 May 2019

The Identity and Evolution of Cell Types

This new 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.

3 - 6 July 2019

Mechanical Forces in Development

The symposium aims at bringing together world-leading experts in the fields of mechanobiology, cell biology and developmental biology studying the mechanical basis of cell and tissue morphogenesis.

10 - 13 July 2019

New Approaches and Concepts in Microbiology

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.

11 - 13 September 2019

Multiomics to Mechanisms - Challenges in Data Integration

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.

29 September - 2 October 2019

Systems Genetics: From Genomes to Complex Traits

This meeting will focus on the central questions of when and how do changes in genotype result in changes in phenotype and will bring together groups using experimental, statistical and mechanistic modelling approaches to address these questions at different scales and in diverse model systems, including for human disease.

9 - 12 October 2019

Seeing is Believing - Imaging the Molecular Processes of Life

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.

16 - 19 October 2019

The Non-Coding Genome

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.

20 - 23 November 2019

Metabolism Meets Epigenetics

Metabolism and epigenetics are intricately linked, playing key roles in development, cancer, immune signaling 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.

1 - 4 March 2020

The Organism and Its Environment

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 levels. This symposium will address how genotype and the environment bring about phenotypes at the population level.

15 - 18 March 2020

Inter-Organ Communication in Physiology and Disease

29 March - 1 April 2020

The Four-Dimensional Genome

This symposium will bring together internationally leading researchers from the imaging, genomics and computational modelling fields to communicate the latest advances and foster their integration towards a comprehensive spatial and temporal understanding of the functional four-dimensional organisation of the eukaryotic genome.

11 - 14 May 2020

Cellular Mechanisms Driven By Liquid Phase Separation

19 - 22 July 2020

Defining and Defeating Metastasis

14 - 17 September 2020

The Neurovascular Interface

20 - 22 September 2020

The Molecular Basis and Evolution of Sexual Dimorphism

3 - 6 October 2020

The Complex Life of RNA

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
