About the Workshop

For many years, the lysosome or vacuole represented the cell’s waste-yard, where cargo delivered through autophagy pathways and from the late endosome is digested or recycled. However, compelling recent evidence suggests that the lysosome harbors a complex nutrient sensing machinery that regulates important cellular processes including autophagy, lysosomal biogenesis, lipid catabolism and aging. The lysosome also provides an important source of energy metabolites and ions. As such, the lysosome emerged as a central metabolic signaling hub maintaining cellular and organismal energy homeostasis. In addition, the lysosome exerts important functions in cellular secretion and plasma membrane repair.

This EMBO Workshop on Lysosomes & Metabolism gathers key investigators covering these recent aspects of lysosomal biology linking it to cellular and organismal metabolism as well as human metabolic diseases. The aim is to foster scientific exchange on lysosomes and metabolism and to enable fruitful discussions among young and established scientists while being exposed to the beautiful Naples area.

About the Area

The venue

The Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine (TIGEM) was founded in 1994 as a leading Italian research center. The meeting venue is located in Pozzuoli, a town close to Naples, in the former “Comprensorio Olivetti” factory, built in 1954 by Adriano Olivetti who combined the needs of industrial society with the values of a traditional society.

In 2015 TIGEM relocated to this complex carrying on the legacy of this factory, inserting modern technology into a space surrounded by great natural beauty. The institute is complete with a cafeteria, recreational space and gym, paths, and most importantly, the scientific equipment and labs needed to conduct our research.

The surroundings

Pozzuoli is a unique territory in the world, characterized by a volcanic system in full activity, subject to bradisismic phenomena and marine erosion. An ancient and "dynamic" land whose landscape is designed by five lakes alternating between coves and tufa rock ranges. The land where Cuma Eubea, the first city of Magna Grecia, was built, followed by Baia, Puteoli (Pozzuoli), Bauli (Bacoli) and Neapolis (Naples).

The Archaeological Park of Liternum is located in the area known as ‘Campi Flegrei’, whose Greek name means "Burning Fields" and is indicative of its volcanic origin. In these lands nature has given the best of itself, alongside the beauty of the sea to the disturbing charm of the volcanoes. Even man seems to have been enticed to make Campi Flegrei a unique and superb land. The Romans have built aqueducts, amphitheatres and villas of a perceptible beauty still today, without forgetting the myth of Eneide, set by Virgil in the Phlegrean Fields. Cuma with the Archaeological Park where you can admire the Antro of Sibilla, the Temple of Jupiter and that of Apollo; Pozzuoli with the Flavian Amphitheater, the Temple of Serapis and those of Augustus and Neptune; the Bay with the Marine Archaeological Park, the Archaeological Museum, the Monumental Park, the Castle Aragonese and the Tomb of Agrippina; The whole area of ​​Campi Flegrei Fields is characterized by the presence of volcanic lakes such as Lake Patria, Lake Averno, Lake Lucerne and Lake Fusaro. The only one in the world is the Solfatara volcano, whose crater is still active and characterized by fumaroles emitting sulfur and vapor fumes.
