About the Workshop
During the past few decades neuroscience has exploded into a variety of subfields, while novel technologies and approaches have revolutionized our understanding of brain function. In particular, molecular studies have revealed an unexpected heterogeneity of both neuronal and glial cells, and provided deeper insights into mechanisms of plasticity, degeneration and regenerative possibilities.
This EMBO workshop will bring together experts in various subfields of neuroscience integrated by cell and molecular biology to discuss the latest findings in neurogenesis, homeostasis, pathogenesis and regeneration approaches in the central nervous system. Scientists from around the world, from the fields of both neuronal and glial biology, will come together to discuss molecules, cells and circuits, in development, homeostasis and pathogenesis. The topics covered are a) neurogenesis b) plasticity and homeostasis c) circuits & behavior d) cellular heterogeneity, and e) pathogenesis and regeneration. These topics are often discussed in focused specialized meetings. This workshop therefore, aims to provide a common platform to integrate concepts and people working in these diverse subfields of neuroscience.
Due to repeated requests for extending the abstract submission deadline, we are reopening the abstract submission until, Nov 3rd. As a result, the selection decision and payment deadline has also been extended, as indicated on the website. Please note that we have already received more than two times applications than can be accommodated.
Feedback from participants
"I'm going to start what I'm sure will be an avalanche of appreciation and thanks for a wonderful meeting- super talks, organization, venue, helpful volunteers, and FUN!!!
“It was truly a fantastic meeting! Great science, great students and great hosts! (And: great food……)
See you soon and with best wishes,”
“Thank you for this wonderful conference and outstanding organization. It was a pleasure, certainly shared by all the speakers, to have the opportunity to visit your center of excellence and to meet such brilliants and highly motivated students. We are now on our trip discovering your beautiful country.
“I agree strongly with my colleagues: this meeting was really outstanding and was a great experience. I enjoyed so much the rich and diverse programs, and also the exceptional local organisation
Thanks you so much”
“I agree too, it was an absolutely wonderful experience. The students really stood out as a fantastic presence at the meeting. Thanks Hiyaa and Rene for organizing and everyone for giving such great talks!”
“Thank you so much for the invitation and planning such a great meeting! Was a fantastic time”
“One of the best-ever meetings I've attended in terms of the science discussed and the venue.”
“nothing novel to add to the deserved praise for this hopefully new series of EMBO meetings in Bangalore, with many more to come”
"This is absolutely what I had been looking forward to.... I have a lot to take back to my colleagues at my laboratory and institution …... "
“Thank you so much for having organised this meeting - it has been a great pleasure to participate, thanks to the unique venue, the very engaged trainees, the smooth organisation, the great science, etc. I hope the work behind the scene during the meeting did not prevent you from enjoying it too.”
“Some colleagues I had not seen for ages and this was a great opportunity to touch base again. Discussions with others were a perfect input for ongoing projects in my lab and interactions with others putative beginnings of new collaborative projects. Talking to the students was what I liked best. “
“enjoyed the meeting very much. Science was great!”
“Congratulations for putting together such a fantastic meeting- both science and social interactions were lots of fun! It was one the most memorable meetings for me “
“Thanks again for a truly wonderful meeting. The venue, science, and most importantly the trainees, were all of the highest standard. I look forward to my next visit to Bangalore in earnest.”
“I have to say that this has been the most memorable meeting in my life. Science was impressive, and the organization and warmth of the hosts was the best ever. You made us feel so comfortable in an environment that is totally different from home. I cannot imagine anything being better than what it was.
It was my first time in India, and just opened a desire to go back and dig deeper in that overwhelming country. THANK YOU!”
