Several Advanced Lecture Courses and Special Meetings established the tradition of the ABC meetings in Austria. This 9th FEBS Special Meeting – ABC2023 – will cover all basic and applied aspects of ABC proteins, both in normal and cancer cells, their important roles in genetic diseases as well as drug resistance phenomena in cancer or microbial systems. Leading scientists from all over the world and representatives of major pharmaceutical companies will present and discuss latest news on ABC proteins operating in bacteria, fungi, plants, parasites and humans. We were able to commit numerous leading experts to participate, with many new faces attending as plenary speakers.
Organizers: Gergely Szakacs, Ute Hellmich
Deadline for applications: 6 January 2023
3–7 May 2023
Molecular and cellular pathways of aging in hematopoiesis
The molecular and cellular pathways in hematopoietic aging and associated hematological disease remain poorly understood. Our Workshop will bring together basic, translational and clinical scientists to discuss key regulators of hematopoietic stem cell ontogeny, cell fate specification and self-renewal upon aging and malignant transformation, highlighting state-of-the-art technologies such as metabolomics, single-cell sequencing and model systems. The FEBS Workshop is also supported by the ARCH Marie Sklodowska Curie ITN and will take place in the beautiful setting of Fodele in Crete.
Polyphosphate: the actual biology of an ancient polymer
The past decades have witnessed a growing interest in inorganic polyphosphate (polyP), a linear polymer of phosphate that predates life. PolyP participates in many vital functions including bacterial virulence, blood coagulation, cancer, inflammation, and chaperone activity, among others. In addition, recent publications revealed novel fundamental knowledge in polyP biology. Following the success of the first polyP meeting, held virtually in 2021, this FEBS Workshop gathering will show the current progress and engage our researchers’ community.
The event website is in preparation.
1st FEBS Redox Medicine Workshop: from cellular signaling to systems physiology and therapeutic targets
The 1st FEBS Workshop on Redox Medicine will cover the most recent data on the redox regulation of biological functions ranging from fundamental to clinical research and therapeutic applications, as well as specific and sensitive tools and techniques to properly identify and quantify oxidants in complex biological settings. The main goal is to promote an environment in which young researchers can interact with prominent senior researchers. Join us for a workshop including lectures by invited speakers and short presentations by participants selected from submitted abstracts.
This FEBS Advanced Lecture Course aims to provide an overview of the current structural, biophysical, informatics and chemical techniques used in disease biology understanding and drug discovery and design. A combination of lectures and workshops will provide theoretical background and hands-on experience. Poster sessions and short talks, as well as the very informal atmosphere typical of the beautiful town of Erice, will encourage networking and interactions with leaders in the field.
Organizers: Giovanna Scapin, Charlotte Dean, Frank von Delft
This FEBS Advanced Lecture Course will cover all fields related to the study of the family of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARPs), from basic molecular and physiological studies to applied clinical research with an explicit aim to cover drug development. The different sessions are organized in a way that facilitates interaction between young researchers and senior scientists. The meeting is expected to host ~100 participants encompassing scientists engaged in drug chemistry, structural biology, biochemistry, DNA damage response, animal and human studies.
