3 - 6 October 2018

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.

16 - 19 September 2018

The Human Microbiome

Plentiful opportunities for researchers to learn about and discuss important developments in the field of human microbiota, the collection of microbes living in and on our body that have a significant impact on human health and well-being.

10 - 13 September 2018

Organoids: Modelling Organ Development and Disease in 3D Culture

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.

5 - 8 September 2018

Principles of Chromosome Structure and Function

This symposium aims to provide a novel viewpoint on chromosome biology by approaching the topic with a highly interdisciplinary range of outstanding speakers, including experts in novel high-throughput molecular biology techniques, experimental physical approaches, polymer modelling, structural biology and advanced imaging technologies.

24 - 27 June 2018

Innate Immunity in Host-Pathogen Interactions

At this symposium, innate immunity and microbiology — including virology, bacteriology and fungal pathogens — will be featured in joint sessions, with talks revolving around common processes.

3 - 5 June 2018

Biological Oscillators: Design, Mechanism, Function

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.

27 - 30 May 2018

Microtubules: From Atoms to Complex Systems

This syposium will cover the main domains of the microtubule field, ranging from structural biology, biochemistry and biophysics to cell biology, genetics and chemical biology.

14 - 17 May 2018

Cellular Mechanisms Driven by Liquid Phase Separation

Liquid phase separation is emerging as a common biophysical basis underlying many important cellular functions, therefore we invite scientists from soft matter polymer physics, molecular “un” structural biologists, cell biologists and developmental biologists to help us push this emerging topic onto the world-wide stage.

7 - 10 May 2018

DNA Replication: From Basic Biology to Disease

By bringing together experts in the basic biology of DNA replication and DNA replication stress, this EMBO | EMBL Symposium aims to fuel further progress in these important fields.

11 - 14 March 2018

Tissue Self-Organisation: Challenging the Systems

This symposium will cover cell and developmental biology, tissue biophysics, theoretical modelling, organoids and synthetic biology, and provide a platform to discuss and identify key approaches and future collaborations in tissue self-organisation.
