Organoids: Modelling Organ Development and Disease in 3D Culture

This meeting 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. An international scientific conference discussing new insight into the generation of diverse organ-like structures in culture.

The Complex Life of mRNA

This symposium will bring leaders in the mRNA field together with post-docs and students, with the aim of disseminating and discussing the most recent results. The programme includes sessions on transcription, mRNA processing,export and localization, mRNA surveillance and decay and translation and the control of mRNA expression by microRNAs.

7 - 10 September 2016

Actin in Action: From Molecules to Cellular Functions

This meeting will bring together researchers from different communities interested in actin-related processes and is designed to cover actin organization broadly, from the molecular scale to the whole organism.

26 - 29 June 2016

Innate Immunity in Host-Pathogen Interactions

Innate immunity and microbiology will synergize at this meeting to obtain a global view of host-pathogen interactions and how they lead to disease.

29 May - 1 June 2016

Microtubules: From Atoms to Complex Systems

The symposium coincides with the 50th anniversary of the discovery of tubulin. With an eye to history and one to the future, it will bring together representative members of the main domains of the microtubule field, ranging from structural biology, biochemistry and biophysics to cell biology, genetics and chemical biology.

8 - 11 May 2016

New Model Systems for Linking Evolution and Ecology

The symposium bridges the gap between genetics of individuals and community interactions between multiple individuals in ecological settings.

3 - 6 April 2016

Tumour Microenvironment and Signalling

To fully understand tumour development and progression, a deeper knowledge of the cross-talk between tumour cells and their microenvironment and the interactions between cancer cells and cancer stem cells is needed. This symposium will focus on how the microenvironment influences tumour development.

26 - 29 January 2016

A New Age of Discovery for Aquatic Microeukaryotes

The symposium will bring together researchers across multiple areas of marine, aquatic, and terrestrial microbial eukaryotic study to increase permeability across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and foster new collaborations.
