The 4th Prato Conference on Pore Forming Proteins will be held Monday 24th September to Thursday 27th September 2018 at the Monash University Prato Centre in Italy.
Come to Prato and explore the wonderful world of pore-forming toxins: Pore forming proteins (PFPs) are molecules that self-assemble from a soluble form into oligomeric membrane spanning pores. These molecules play diverse roles in processes such as immunity, bacterial pathogenicity, venom toxicity and developmental biology. From a translational perspective PFPs are also emerging as key molecules of utility in medical research, protection of agricultural crops from pests, DNA sequencing, and as tumour therapeutics.
The meeting will span a wide spectrum of research (both academic and industry focused) on Pore Forming Proteins from all kingdoms of life and across a range of different functions.

9–12 November 2016 Protein Secretion in Bacteria Conference
Sirata Beach Resort. Florida. USA
About 30% of the proteins synthesized by bacteria are transported across or integrated into cell membranes. Many of these secreted and membrane-associated proteins play critical roles in cell physiology, intracellular communication, promoting survival in specific environments, and pathogenesis. Bacteria use a remarkable diversity of pathways to transport proteins across or into membranes, some of which have come to light only very recently. The goal of this conference is to bring together investigators who study these different transport pathways to discuss important recent advances, to exchange ideas, and to identify common themes. A wide variety of topics will be covered, including the mechanisms of protein translocation across membranes, the assembly of translocation channels, the biogenesis of integral membrane proteins, the structural biology of transport machines, the regulation and energetics of transport reactions, and emerging transport phenomena.

The MYTOX association research platform MYTOX "Mycotoxins and Toxigenic Moulds" was established in 2007 and consists of more than 50 researchers from 12 research laboratories in the Ghent University Association. MYTOX deals with mycotoxin research in a multi-disciplinary way, based on four main units: (1) mycotoxins; (2) toxigenic fungi; (3) mycotoxins and animal health; and (4) mycotoxins and human health. In this way, MYTOX tackles the mycotoxin issue along the production chain from the field to the end consumer, within the ‘One Health’ concept.
The Symposium welcomes participants from industry, government as well as academia. Only through multidisciplinary efforts and concerted actions, can further progress and solutions be expected for the mycotoxin problem.
The joint Special Issue with Toxins aims to bring together active researchers to present their current work in mycotoxins and mycotoxigenic fungi:

12–17 June 2011 Gordon Research Conference: Mycotoxins & Phycotoxins
Waterville, ME, USA
Fungi, algae and cyanobacteria are capable of producing an expansive array of toxic secondary metabolites that adversely affect the health of humans and animals. Mycotoxins and phycotoxins are found in food, water and air. The frequency and intensity of their occurrence is often impacted by environmental change and human activity. Given the ecological and societal importance of this field, numerous disciplines (e.g., analytical chemistry, toxicology, ecology, plant pathology, epidemiology, genomics/proteomics, meteorology, economics and risk assessment/hazard management) within the public and private sectors have been involved in addressing the myriad problems associated with the occurrence of these natural toxins. The 15th Gordon Research Conference on Mycotoxins and Phycotoxins offers a unique international forum for academic, governmental and industrial scientists to exchange ideas, identify new research opportunities and initiate cross-disciplinary collaborations. Contemporary themes will be explored to facilitate the discussion of the “what, how, who, when, and why” of natural toxin events.
Themes will include:
1) novel toxins and toxicities,
2) molecular mechanisms of toxicity and detoxification,
3) public health effects/disease epidemiology,
4) societal and economic impacts,
5) genetic and environmental control of toxigenesis,
6) physiological and ecological roles of toxins,
7) detection and predictive modeling and
8) risk assessment and abatement.
A primary goal of this unique gathering is to create a critical mass and atmosphere for creative thinking necessary to advance knowledge of the complex environmental and societal problems presented by naturally occurring toxigenic microbes and their toxins. Special consideration will be given to strategies to improve interactions of junior and senior scientists during the conference. In keeping with the ethos of Gordon Research Conferences, while information will be disseminated by speaker presentations, vigorous discussion will be the key focus. Designated discussion leaders, recognized for their skills in each particular area, will guide the audience-based discussions. Poster sessions will provide an opportunity for lively and informal discussion, in counterpoint to the more formal oral sessions. In addition, the Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) will convene immediately preceding the GRC (11-12 June 2011). Organized and conducted by graduate students and postdocs, the GRS will provide an opportunity for junior scientists to present their work in a formal, oral format, in front of their peers. These students will participate in the subsequent Mycotoxins and Phycotoxins GRC providing an unmatched opportunity to promote interactions between future researchers and established ones.
The mission of the Egyptian Society of Natural Toxins (ESNT) is to provide global research, information, training and resources that will lead to better understanding of the danger as well as the usefulness of different types of naturally produced toxins.
This will include studies on the nature, occurrence, effects, mechanism of action, isolation, identification and characterization of natural products with toxic activities.
Particular emphasis is placed on evaluating the significance of the effects of such toxicants on human health besides the discovery of medically important component(s) found in these toxins.
Areas of research covered by the society include histopathology, cytopathology, pathophysiology, molecular biology, immunology, microbiology, Bacteriology, virology, parasitology, epidemiology, chemistry, biochemistry, biosynthesis, metabolism, and pharmacology of various classes of natural toxicants and their therapeutic applications in medicine and biology.
It will also cover the fields of taxonomy and classification of poisonous living organisms.
We are very pleased that in 2010 the "Linz-Congress" will be held in cooperation with ESTIV as “ESTIV 2010 - the 16th International Congress on In Vitro Toxicology”. For the first time these two congresses will be held together and we are sure that the cooperation between ESTIV and EUSAAT will facilitate a high scientific level in presentations, discussions and exchange of new ideas for the benefit of alternative methods to animal experiments.
The organising committee has invested its efforts to address all of the subjects of interest to scientists in Europe, who are interested in the 3Rs. English will be the official congress language.
The participants will be updated on new approaches and methodologies, e.g. -omics-techniques or the correlation between in vitro data and human data will be subjects of the lectures and poster presentations and a wide sprectrum of toxicological effects will be addressed as well as cross-cutting.
The program of the congresses in Linz traditionally also focuses on legal and ethical aspects and on standardising and and harmonising in vitro approaches, specifically on good cell culture practices.
We will also provide a forum for reviewing the latest developments in the European chemicals and cosmetics policy in context with the use of alternatives methods. Another hot topic is the revision of the EU-directive 86/609, which will affect European scientists working in academia, industry and government institutions in the life sciences.
As in the past on purpose we will avoid parallel sessions in Linz and give a high priority to poster presentations. The best and most innovative posters will be awarded, which may motivate young scientists to effectively contribute to the development and application of alternative methods in Europe.
Located in the center of Europe, Linz is a typically charming Austrian city with an excellent mixture of science, culture and economy. Moreover, the Linz congresses have in the past have provided an excellent, informal environment for scientists interested in the 3Rs to exchange ideas, meet old friends and make new ones.
19–23 July 2010 XII International Congress of Toxicology
Palau de Congressos de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain
The Spanish Association of Toxicology (AETOX) and EUROTOX in the name of the International Union of Toxicology (IUTOX), invite you to participate in IUTOX-2010, the XII International Congress of Toxicology.
The Congress will encourage the interaction between Academia, Industry, Regulators, Expert in Human (clinical and epidemiology) and Environmental Toxicology.
Chemical Safety is increasingly requiring integrated and translational approaches to get successful possibilities of innovative application of the results of research and development based on added values with safety to human health and the environment. From the most basic molecular and cellular research, going through in vitro alternative approach of understanding long term effects, “omics” strategist for in vitro and more rational animal testing and human diagnosis, application of human data (epidemiological and clinical data) to risk assessment in regulatory purpose, alternative efficient strategists for toxicity evaluation and computing data handling, efficient process for realistic risk characterization of thousands of chemicals, risk communication and social acceptance. All these different levels of activities need to be integrated in translational approaches for successful industrial, biomedical and environmental applications. New material as nanomaterials and new drug generations and biotechnological products and the objectives of sustainable chemistry open to new scientific and methodological approaches.
The IUTOX-2010 intend to be a forum for interaction among different fields of activity related with toxicology under a scientific environment.
Multidisciplinary and translational approaches for interacting expert from academia (basis mechanistic, effects testing, monitoring), industry, clinical toxicologists, environmentalists, regulators, and technological developers, will be especially welcome.
