About the Workshop
This EMBO Workshop aims to bring together researchers working on molecular processes in the nervous system. It emphasizes cross-disciplinary research and promotes collaboration between the structural biology, biophysics and “in vivo” communities. The talks will be on the latest breakthroughs in structural biology, advanced imaging, and advanced biological models in neurobiology. The programme is designed to promote discussion of cutting-edge methods and results.
The sessions will cover aspects of neuronal cell navigation and differentiation, cell-surface receptor signaling, synapse biology, neuronal wiring, methods development, and will highlight progress in understanding associated diseases mechanisms.
Given its cross-disciplinary nature, this EMBO Workshop presents a broad overview of the field, excellent opportunities for discussion, and an insight into the latest technologies. It provides a space for learning, for forging new collaborations, and for presenting ideas that will determine the future of molecular neurobiology.
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.
