About the Workshop

The innate branch of the immune system serves as the first line of defense, with the intricate task of detecting molecules and organisms that are a danger to the organism. Inflammasomes constitute a family of cytosolic sensors that can directly detect microbial molecules, but also indirectly sense damage by detecting the perturbation of cellular homeostasis. In recent years great progress has been made in the characterization of inflammasome components and their pivotal role as surveillance machineries in microbial infection. In addition, it has become evident that many non-communicable diseases are triggered or perpetuated by inflammasomes and a number of studies have uncovered the significant therapeutic potential of targeting these pathways. In that regard, inflammasomes have also become a prime focus for the development of novel anti-inflammatory therapies.

This EMBO workshop provides the unique opportunity to bring together researchers from diverse fields and disciplines to discuss the latest progress on inflammasome biology, ranging from basic molecular mechanisms all the way to clinical applications. Importantly, the workshop will also provide an interactive forum for trainees, junior researchers, established scientists and industry to foster interdisciplinary and interprofessional communication in this emerging field.

Transport

From the airport:

Munich is well connected by its international airport (MUC). To get to the venue we strongly recommend public transportation:

Take the S-Bahn S8 direction ''to station Marienplatz” in the city center. Change to the subway U6, direction "Klinikum Großhadern", and get off at "Großhadern". From there, take bus 266, direction "Planegg" and get off at the station "Max-Planck-Institute".

Alternatively, at Marienplatz you can change to the S6, direction "Tutzing" to the station "Planegg", then bus 266, direction "Klinikum Großhadern" to station "Max-Planck-Institute".

For more information, please check Munich's public transportation website.

About the Area

The conference center is located in Martinsried, about 12 km from the city center of Munich, with excellent access to public transportation. Along with its traditional breweries, Munich is home to the famous Oktoberfest, which takes place every year in the last two weeks of September. However, as the southernmost German metropolis, located close by the Bavarian Alps, Munich has much more to offer than its beer drinking culture. Only a few European cities can rival Munich for its unique mixture of art and culture, tradition and modernity, relaxation and outgoingness. You can discover many historical buildings and get a great impression of past Bavarian royalty in the many castles in and surrounding Munich. There are many museums of modern and contemporary art to explore, and at the same time Munich offers a thriving nightlife with a lively bar and restaurant scene. And if you want to get away from the hustle of the big city, you can enjoy taking a stroll through the extensive English Garden or Olympic Park.
