From Single- to Multiomics: Applications and Challenges
in Data Integration

Experts in from all 'omics fields and computational biology will discuss the future of multi-omics integration to address novel biological questions.

11 - 14 October 2017

The Mobile Genome: Genetic and Physiological Impacts of Transposable Elements

The meeting will stimulate interdisciplinary discussions on various key topics including the impact of mobile DNA on genome structure and evolution, novel advances in the mechanism of transposition and transposon defense as well as the developmental and physiological roles of transposition.

4 - 7 October 2017

Seeing is Believing - Imaging the 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.

13 - 16 September 2017

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.

12 - 15 July 2017

Mechanical Forces in Biology

The symposium aims to unite the field of mechanobiology, by bringing together world-leading experts in the generation and sensing of forces from the molecular scale to the organismal scale. An important emphasis will be the combination of physics and computer modelling with molecular genetics and live-imaging in vitro or in vivo. The field is currently expanding rapidly and we aim to provide a comprehensive overview of this progress as well as aiming to capitalise on the opportunities for new collaborations.

27 - 30 June 2017

New Approaches and Concepts in Microbiology

This meeting aims to bridge the gap between traditional microbiology and systems approaches-novel technologies, by exposing microbiologists to new ways of addressing their hypotheses, and allowing systems or technology experts to get a feeling of the burning questions in the field and/or find collaborators for follow-up work or for applying their technology.

14 - 17 June 2017

Mechanisms of Neurodegeneration

This symposium will bring together basic and clinical research scientists working on different forms of neurodegeneration with their counterparts from the biotechnology and pharma industry, to apply recent insights gained in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases and the development of drug therapies. It will bridge the gap between basic research and medical research in an area that urgently requires therapeutic progress.

21 - 23 May 2017

Molecular and Cell Biology of Membranes

The symposium focuses on bringing together experts in the field of lipid and membrane biology, including lipid metabolism & transport, lipid-protein interaction, lipid signaling and membrane contact sites - and review the recent advances and new emerging concepts.

14 - 17 May 2017

Neural Circuits in the Past, Present and Future

The goal of this symposium is to promote interactions between researchers studying neural circuits both in traditional model systems (worm, fly, fish, mouse), in humans, and in diverse, emerging models.

11 - 13 May 2017

Metabolism in Time and Space: Emerging Links to Cellular and Developmental Programs

This symposium focuses on the role of metabolism in controlling cellular and developmental programs in its spatial and temporal complexity. There is a fundamental interest in deciphering the intricate link between metabolism and regulatory cellular programs during cell differentiation and the development of multicellular organisms. Recent technological progress has enabled us to analyse metabolism and metabolic activities with spatio-temporal resolution. This creates unprecedented potential to address how metabolic state impacts on cellular and developmental programs.
