6 December 2021 Cells Webinar | Nervous System Development and Plasticity in Model Organisms VI


Come join the 6th Webinar specialising in the Nervous System Development and Plasticity in Model Organisms!
The Nervous system is essential for receiving, transferring, and processing information, which allows us to make important decisions and carry out everyday tasks. It is composed of two main cell populations, which are the neurons and the glial cells.
As the central part of the nervous system, neurons process incoming information and transmit it to different parts of the body. Glial cells provide support and protection for neurons and are necessary for neural development, synapse and myelin formation and proper function of neurons. They also maintain the homeostasis of the nervous system as some population of glial cells can behave as neural stem cells during embryonic development and in adult stages.
During the development of an organism, the nervous system undergoes significant changes not only regarding its structure but also its function. Neurons, glial cells and the numerous molecular signals and components that are part of the nervous system, can play various roles during different stages of development and in different parts of the nervous system.
This webinar features several eminent experts in the field of nervous system development, maintenance and regeneration in different model organisms.
This webinar will include the following experts:
  • Dr. Sepand Rastegar, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany
  • Prof. Dr. Julia Ganz, Department of Integrative Biology, Michigan State University, East Lansing, USA
  • Dr. Giulia Quattrocolo, Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience and Centre for Neural Computation, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway

When? 6 December 2021 at 2:00 pm CET | 8:00am EST | 9:00pm CST Asia

5–8 April 2022 Viruses 2022 - At the Leading Edge of Virology Research


Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the conference Viruses 2022At the Leading Edge of Virology Research, to be held virtually 5-8 April 2022.

As we enter the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, the central importance of virology to all aspects of the human enterprise has never been clearer. The pandemic starkly illustrates the impact that viruses can have on human health and activity, as well as underscoring how advances in virus research can rapidly mitigate the most severe outcomes. While the COVID-19 pandemic has been on everyone’s mind, we should not lose sight of the significance of other viral infections or overlook the utility of viruses or viral components that can be harnessed to serve useful and important functions; nor should we ignore the power of viral systems in studies across a wide range of biomedical disciplines, including molecular and cell biology, immunology, chemical biology, evolutionary biology, and structural biology.

This conference is sponsored by MDPI, the publisher of the open-access journal Viruses, and follows the very successful meetings Viruses 2016—At the Forefront of Virus-Host Interactions (January 2016; Basel, Switzerland), Viruses 2018—Breakthroughs in Viral Replication (February 2018; Barcelona, Spain), and Viruses 2020—Novel Concepts in Virology (February 2020; Barcelona, Spain). Like these previous conferences, Viruses 2022 will cover a wide range of topics of interest to participants. In addition to invited talks from world-renowned virologists, the conference will feature oral presentations and posters selected from submitted abstracts.

I, and the Viruses 2022 Scientific Committee (Drs. Shan-Lu Liu, Mark Young, Britt Glaunsinger, Kathy Spindler, Veronique Ziegler-Graff), look forward to your participation in this exciting conference.

Viruses 2022 Chair and

6–9 September 2022 The 4th ISFMS: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Druggability of Proteins

Florence, Italy

We would like to invite you to The 4th ISFMS: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Druggability of Proteins, which will be held in the wonderful city of Florence, Italy, in the period September 6-9, 2022. The conference will be hosted at the University of Florence, in the biomedical campus nearby the main city hospital, which is easily accessible from the airport, train station or city center. Apart the high quality science which will be presented during the event, our fantastic location will afford the possibility to visit the city in which Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Galileo Galilei (to mention just a few personalities) lived and created some of their unique artistic and scientific masterpieces. The friendly and peaceful atmosphere of our city will surely favor nice scientific interactions and the possibility to establish interesting contacts with scientists from all over the world in a collaborative manner.


25–27 May 2022 Polymers 2022 -New Trends in Polymer Science: Health of the Planet, Health of the People

Turin, Italy

We are very proud and honored to announce the international conference Polymers 2022 - New Trends in Polymers Science: Health of the Planet, Health of the People, organized in collaboration with the MDPI open access journal Polymers. The conference will be held in Turin, Italy, on May 25–27, 2022.

The purpose of the meeting is to bring together scientists from academia and industry to present leading-edge research on the advancements in polymer science and technology in all its main aspects, with a particular emphasis on those aiming to preserve and improve the health of the planet and of people, as per title. Both oral and poster contributions are welcome. The broad themes that will be addressed during the conference include synthesis, modification, and characterization of synthetic and natural polymers, polymers from green chemistry, polymer hybrids, nanocomposites, polymer biomaterials, polymers in drug delivery and tissue engineering, polymers for human health, bio-based and biodegradable polymers, polymer recycling and re-use, polymers for the environment, functional polymers, and polymers in energy, among others.

26 June–1 July 2022 International Conference on Cryocrystals and Quantum Crystals

Wroclaw, Poland

Since 1995, Conference on Cryocrystals and Quantum Crystals (CC) has been an important international forum for presenting new results on physics and chemistry of atomic and molecular solids such as rare gas solids, hydrogens, nitrogen, oxygen, methanes, helium isotopes, water ice, etc..

The CC conference is held every two years and since the first meeting in Almaty it is the sixt time that the CC community settles in Poland. Following the initial conference in Kazakhstan next meetings were held in: Polanica Zdrój (1997), Szklarska Poręba (2000), Freising (2002), Wrocław (2004 & 2008), Kharkiv (2006), Chernogolovka (2010), Odessa (2012), Almaty (2014), Turku (2016) and last time in Wojanów (2018).

The scope of CC is wide, including, but not limited to: films, nanoscale systems, low temperature physics, charged species in cryocrystals, spectroscopy of cryocrystals, ultra-low temperature and high-pressure studies, matrix isolation in cryocrystals, ultrafast dynamics in crystals, order-disorder phenomena, technological applications and instrumentation.
