About the Workshop

This is the 12th triennial Conference and 3rd EMBO Workshop on Ribosome Synthesis. We bring together scientists working on all aspects of ribosome biogenesis and function, including nucleolar assembly by liquid-liquid phase separation, RNA polymerase I transcription, rDNA chromatin structure, rRNA processing and modification, ribosome assembly, structural formation of ribosomes, rRNA quality control and degradation, nuclear export, snoRNP assembly and function, integration with cell division and metabolism, connection with diseases, and insights into nucleolar structure and function.

The overall aim of this EMBO Workshop on Ribosome Synthesis is to promote scientific exchange and synergies across the entire field by gathering leading established and upcoming scientists to discuss and exchange the most recent advances in the areas mentioned above and the latest cutting-edge technologies to tackle them.

About the Area

Engelberg-Titlis is the largest winter and summer holiday destination in central Switzerland. The attractive village with the famous monastery offers a wide variety of activities.

Engelberg is located 25 km south of Lake Lucerne in a wide mountain valley at an altitude of around 1000 meters. At 3,239 meters, Titlis mountain with its glacier, and Hahnen mountain at 2,600 meters, are towering over the surrounding peaks.

The town of Engelberg is appealing because of its distinct and rustic character. The Benedictine monastery was founded in 1120 and has a great impact on the life of the village, even today. Monks still live, work and teach there. The homes left over from the Belle Epoque are also witnesses of that time period.
