Early FEBS Advanced Courses 2019
FEBS Advanced Courses provide excellent opportunities for research updates, learning, training and networking. Below, we highlight upcoming events that have registration deadlines in February 2019. Explore all the details on the event websites!
FEBS Youth Travel Fund (YTF) grants are available to financially support the participation of young scientists in these events.
FEBS ADVANCED LECTURE COURSES
Matrix pathobiology, signaling and molecular targets
Porto Heli, Greece
May 2–7, 2019
This Advanced Lecture Course will cover a wide range of topics, from basic and applied science to clinical applications. The course will focus on recent highlights in the fields of matrix biology, biochemistry, structural biology, epigenetics, pharmacology and medicine to present PhD students and postdoctoral scientists, as well as academic and institute research fellows, with novel aspects of pharmaceutical targeting. Plenary lectures, poster sessions, panel discussions and speaker’s corners/meet-the-experts sessions will address and encourage the interaction of young scientists with the invited experts in discussions about science and career paths.
Organizer: Nikos Karamanos; E-mail: [email protected]
Deadline for applications: February 28, 2019
HFP2019: Molecular mechanisms of host–pathogen interactions and virulence in human fungal pathogens
La Colle sur Loup, France
May 18–24, 2019
Human fungal infections are widespread and pose a significant threat to global health. The battle between the host and the pathogens will be a major topic of this course. Therefore, both virulence attributes of the pathogens and the host immune response will be discussed. Also, antifungal drug resistance, novel tools and the search for novel antifungals are major topics. The aim is to disseminate the current knowledge to junior scientists and to provide them valuable networking opportunities.
Organizer: Patrick Van Dijck
Deadline for applications: February 1, 2019
FEBS PRACTICAL COURSE
Functional imaging of nuclear organisation and signaling
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
June 9–15, 2019
The ability of cells to perceive and respond to their environment is the basis of tissue homeostasis and the nucleus plays a central role in this process. By increasing our understanding of nuclear organisation, related diseases can be treated more effectively. Microscopic techniques allow us to visualize this organisation and elucidate signaling complexes and their dynamics. This course will give the participants both the theoretical background and hands-on experience of state-of-the-art microscopy techniques.
Organizer: Mark Hink
Deadline for applications: March 1, 2019
