About the Workshop

Workshop illustration

Ferroptosis is a regulated necrotic cell death modality which is now recognized as an evolutionary vulnerability caused by the incorporation of oxidation-prone polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) into cellular membranes. This metabolic cell death process provides the framework to understand the basic biological phenomena of how cells restrain, repair and adapt to phospholipid damage through changes in cellular plasticity. A close interplay between cellular metabolism and ferroptosis was established with phospholipid repair linked to numerous metabolic networks including amino acids, glutathione biosynthesis, NAD(P)H and PUFA metabolism, iron handling and the mevalonate pathway. Notably, this complex network has been found to be dysfunctional in different pathological contexts. This EMBO workshop will bring together scientists from different disciplines interested in the molecular mechanisms linked to ferroptosis, such as lipid signalling, redox chemistry, drug discovery, tumour biology, degenrative diseases, medicine and inflammation, and related experts in cell metabolism. This highly interdisciplinary meeting will promote the exchange of ideas and stimulate a critical assessment of the state-of-the-art between students, postdocs and leading researchers from different fields worldwide.

About EMBO Courses and Workshops

EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).

Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.

Selection criteria

Participants will be selected on the basis of the submitted abstracts. The organizing committee will look for novelty and relevance to the theme of the meeting.
Among oral presentation to be selected from submitted abstracts, a number of slots are reserved for early carrier researchers. If you are an early carrier researcher (max 5 years after completing PhD thesis) and would like your abstract to be considered for oral presentation, please also submit a motivation letter and a brief CV not longer than two pages (format is flexible).

All selected participants will give their presentations in the form of posters.

Abstract guidelines

The abstract limit size is 200 words long.

Poster specifications

The poster size should be

1m x 1.5m (length x height) or A0 portrait

Please take note that the posters should be made available for the whole duration of the meeting. Specific timeslots will be assigned for each participant to be present in person with his/her poster for direct scientific interaction.

Any other registration information

Motivation letter and brief CV not longer than two pages (format is flexible).

Travel grants and registration fee waivers

Travel grants and registration fee waivers are available for participants.

Selection of awardees is handled directly by the organizers. EMBO travel grants and registration fee waivers are allocated on the basis of the quality of the submitted abstract.

Applicants do not need to apply separately for these but should indicate on the registration form if they wish to be considered.

Additional travel grants are available for EMBC Associate Member States Chile, India, Singapore and Taiwan.

Special travel grants and registration fee waivers

A limited number of travel grants and registration fee waivers are available for scientists working in Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovenia and Turkey. Grants are allocated on the basis of the quality of the submitted abstract.

A maximum of 700 Euros per participant are available to cover registration fees, travel, and accommodation (no additional subsistence costs can be covered). To apply, please indicate the itemized amount requested in the travel grants section of the registration form.

Child care grants

EMBO Courses and Workshops offers grants to offset additional childcare costs incurred by participants or speakers when participating at any EMBO Courses and Workshop funded meeting. Eligible costs include fees for a caregiver or child-care facility, travel costs for a caregiver, or travel costs for taking the child to the meeting etc. Please indicate on the registration form whether you would like to be considered for the grant. Please also describe how you intend to use the childcare grant and specify the sum that you will need.
