EMBL Conference: Advances in Stem Cells and Regenerative MedicineMar 8 - 11 , 2020Heidelberg, Germany
Regenerative medicine is based on the ability of stem cells to repair tissue damage. The regenerative capacity of endogenous stem cells decreases with age, is impaired in degenerative diseases, and deregulated in cancer. Our ability to maintain and restore normal tissue function therefore requires that we understand not only the identity, properties and function of normal stem cells, but also the processes that alter their function during ageing, and in both malignant and degenerative disease. The aim of this conference is to provide a comprehensive overview of these aspects of stem cell biology. The cellular and molecular properties of normal tissue stem cells will be discussed, as will the properties of the niches that maintain them. We will address alterations to stem cell function during ageing and malignant transformation, and how stem cells can be used for regenerative purposes and for disease treatment.
2020 Munich Brain CourseMar 13 - Apr 14, 2020Munich, Germany

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Inter-Organ Communication in Physiology and DiseaseMar 15 - 18 , 2020Heidelberg, Germany
One of the major outcomes of research using model organisms is that we are far from knowing all the functions fulfilled by various organs in vertebrates or invertebrates. Deleting one gene at a time in a single cell type is at the origin of unprecedented progress in our understanding of how homeostasis is maintained at the level of an entire organism. As a result, modern physiology has slowly moved from a purely molecular discipline back to being a truly holistic one. This molecular, genetic and yet holistic approach to physiology has had an effect on energy metabolism, the control of blood pressure, the plasticity of cognitive and immune functions, as well as the multiple ways in which organs such as fat, bone or gut can exert control over other organs such as the brain. Symbiotic interactions with resident microbes have added a further dimension to the study of host physiology.
This symposium aims to provide a high visibility platform to scientists who use modern molecular genetic tools to discover inter-organ communications, and therefore to illustrate how much our molecular and genetic understanding of whole-organism physiology has progressed in the last 20 years. Bringing together scientists interested in various aspects of a single discipline, whole-organism physiology, will foster interactions between researchers working in different fields in order to speed up the discovery of novel physiologies. This meeting will also directly address a central question: How can recent developments in whole-organism physiology pave the way to novel and adapted therapies for multiple degenerative diseases? Lastly, it will showcase an approach to modern biology that starts from a question paused at the level of the entire organism and is answered through genetic means at the molecular level.
32nd World Congress on Neurology and NeuroscienceMar 16 - 17 , 2020Hong Kong

14th World Congress on Controversies in NeurologyMar 26 - 29 , 2020London, United Kingdom
Following a hugely successful CONy 2019 held in Madrid, Spain, with over 1,100 delegates from more than 70 countries, our upcoming CONy 2020 in London promises to be CONy’s biggest and brightest yet.
What makes CONy stand out compared to other medical congresses are the differences in structure and focus. Conferences are generally informative, but there is often only limited time for thorough and critical discussions. CONy provides a platform for international experts to discuss and compare experiences, thus closing the gap between the expansion of knowledge and its dissemination and use. By having this debate style structure, the congress has become a major annual event for members of the neurological community. The popularity and increasing relevance of the topics and debates explored during this annual congress has bore many other offshoot meetings, focused on various topics.
All our participants are encouraged to take an active role in the Congress by engaging faculty members in an open and unique environment, submitting abstracts for oral and poster presentations, and voting on debates in each session.
HBP Curriculum Workshop: Measuring and Modelling Brain StatesMar 28 - 29 , 2020Sölden, Austria
The final workshop of the 3rd HBP Curriculum Workshops Series invites researchers interested in measuring and modelling brain states at multiple scales. At the cellular level, the appearance of different brain states (such as wake, sleep, anesthesia) are reviewed at the scale of neurons, from extracellular recordings in both, human and animal models. At a larger scale, it will be discussed how brain states differ from the viewpoint of the whole brain, using electro-encephalogram and intracranial recordings in humans.
From a modeling perspective, workshop participants will learn how cellular data can be used to build model networks of spiking neurons and how mean-field techniques are used to derive population models of different brain states from those network models. Such population models can be integrated in The Virtual Brain environment to yield simulations at the level of the whole brain.
Together, these techniques can bridge scales, from neurons to the whole brain and provide an integrated view of brain states and their responsiveness.

The Cytoskeletal Road to Neuronal FunctionApr 19 - 22 , 2020West Sussex, United Kingdom
The cytoskeleton is a key feature of every living cell. In eukaryotes, microtubule and actin filaments are ubiquitous cytoskeletal elements which work together with molecular motors and a plethora of other proteins to perform many different functions. Neurons are particularly dependent on their cytoskeleton which plays key roles spanning from neuronal differentiation and migration, through axonal trafficking and synapse formation, to neurodegeneration and cell death.
This Workshop brings together scientists from a wide spectrum of disciplines that do not commonly have the chance to interact: neurobiologists with backgrounds in cellular, developmental systems and behavioural neurobiology, as well as structural biologists and biochemists from the cytoskeleton field. Our aim is to delineate how basic molecular and structural knowledge from the cytoskeleton field can help our understanding of neuronal processes that take place on a larger scale. We will discuss topics such as neuronal development and connectivity, neuronal transmission, and also neurodegeneration. Examples of the questions we will discuss are: Why do mutations in cytoskeletal components result in specific subsets of neurons dying? How do defects in the cytoskeleton contribute to erroneous neuronal migration and neurodevelopment and how common are these in human populations? How is the cytoskeleton involved in memory generation, processing and storage?Combining our increased understanding of structural and biochemical aspects of microtubules, actin filaments and motors, with refined tools to study neuronal functions in organisms makes this an especially exciting time to bring people together. Our goal is to discuss novel ideas and form new, fruitful collaborations in a small and focussed setting. We anticipate that our workshop will catalyse a strong interdisciplinary approach to explaining some of the key molecular processes involved in the formation of a brain, its function and how it goes wrong in diseases from dementias to psychiatric disorders.
The Brain Conferences — Brain Stroke: Why, How, and HopeApr 19 - 22 , 2020Rungstedgaard, Denmark
Stroke is an age-related medical condition in which poor blood flow to the brain results in cell death, and is the second cause of mortality worldwide. While the disability associated with stroke can be devastatingly clear, why stroke occurs and how it kills the brain is less apparent. At this brain conference, leading experts from both basic and clinical science will present advances that contribute to a deeper mechanistic understanding of stroke, including fundamental questions around:
- Risk factors: from single genes to holistic factors such as the microbiome
- The molecular pathobiology of stroke and the pathogenic role of immunity and blood-brain barrier breakdown
- Neurovascular reorganization and re-wiring of connections after stroke damage
- The long term sequelae afflicting stroke survivors and the relationship between stroke and dementia
- Strategies to reduce the burden on stroke, ranging from prevention and acute therapy, to promoting functional recovery. A deeper mechanistic insight into these critical events will lead to new treatments and hope for those at risk and/or affected by stroke.
Application is now open.
Early application deadline: January 17, 2020
A limited number of stipends are available.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: The Neurovascular InterfaceSep 14 - 17 , 2020Heidelberg, Germany
Neurovascular biology is a young, emerging field that aims to unravel the molecular communication between the nervous system and the vasculature. Both the nervous system and the vascular system share striking conceptual similarities in the assembly of cellular networks through guided growth and branching processes. Vascular and neural cells work together to form a number of functional tissue compartments. Endothelial cells, certain mural support cells (i.e., pericytes), astrocytes and neurons assemble the neurovascular unit, which establishes the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers. In fact, many of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases and cognitive decline involve disruption of the neurovascular unit or compromised vascular function in the nervous system. It has become increasingly clear that the endothelium and mural support cells function go beyond nutrient supply and are instructive and structurally required to allow nervous system function.
In this symposium, we bring together researchers from vascular biology and neurobiology to foster interdisciplinary exchange and new emerging concepts on how vascular and nervous systems crosstalk to maintain organ homeostasis and function

EMBO Workshop: Neuroepigenetics: From Cells to Behaviour and DiseaseOct 28 - 31 , 2020Heidelberg, Germany
Neuroepigenetics is a young field that is attracting a lot of attention. Genome-wide association studies and mouse models continue to discover new connections between chromatin regulators and neurodevelopmental disorders and epigenetic pathways have been implicated in various physiological and pathological aspects of brain function, such as memory formation and recovery, addiction and neurodegeneration.
This conference aims to provide a gathering opportunity for researchers of all levels who are interested in how gene regulation participates in the development and function of the brain, with particular attention to the chromatin-based regulation of gene expression. The key objective is to bring together, in the same meeting, two groups of scientists: neuroscientists with interest in gene regulation and molecular biologists with strong expertise in the mechanisms of transcription and epigenetics that want to apply their knowledge to understanding how the brain works. We believe the two groups can learn a lot from each other and we hope this conference can function as a catalyst for scientific exchange and collaboration between them.
