Summer school: Advanced tools for data analysis in Neuroscience – 2022

Research discoveries are increasingly dependent on the development of new tools and technologies, as well as on the ability to process, manage and analyze the large amounts of data collected with these tools.

In this summer school, we will focus on several aspects of data preparation and analysis, as well as on the use of simulation and modeling tools capable of generating predictions. These tools will be applied to different data acquisition techniques such as electrophysiological recordings (e.g. EEG, intra or extracellular recordings) or image series from brain imaging (e.g. MRI).

Target audience:

Master and PhD students from the University of Strasbourg and other French and foreign universities are welcome to apply.

Priority will be given to students enrolled in a basic or medical neuroscience program, but students from other specialties will be able to participate as long as places are available.

There is no registration fee.

During the school (Sep. 5-10th), accomodation (but not travel) during the school (but not pre-school) will be offered to non-Strasbourg students. Accomodation expenses during the pre-school and travel for the entire event are to be borne with own fundings.

Students are encouraged to come with their own dataset.

How to apply:

1 – Send an email to philippe.isope@inci-cnrs.unistra.fr to express your intention to apply

2 – When ready, send your CV and a letter of recommendation to philippe.isope@inci-cnrs.unistra.fr

Full application deadline: May 15,2022.

10th Anniversary Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone – A decade’s Perspective on Integrative Neuroscience

This 5th edition of the international conference of the Institute de Neurosciences de la Timone also marks the 10th anniversary of the INT.

The conference program illustrates the scientific approach pursued since 2012. First, our goal was to promote scientific exchanges between the different levels of approach to the nervous system, from the molecule to behavior, in animals and in humans. Second, our strategy was to put at the heart of these cross-fertilization the functional role of large and small networks, in order to better understand the relationships between the brain and cognition. Finally, our ambition was to put these relationships, with their diversity and variability, into a physiological perspective in order to always remember that neurons do not function alone, that the brain is best understood as being part of an organism and that behavior is always a part of a natural repertoire. These three pillars are at the core of our basic research projects but also our clinical research, as the pathologies of the nervous system keep challenging each of our a priori ideas about how the brain works. The four sessions of the Conference illustrate these different questionings.

Conférence Jacques Monod – Protein phase transitions in ageing and age-related diseases: from atomic resolution to cellular solutions

Cells and organisms maintain protein homeostasis in several cooperating ways, which include protein folding, degradation, and sequestration. During aging, the capacity to maintain protein homeostasis declines, which leads to the accumulation of aggregation-prone proteins. These aggregation-prone proteins can accelerate aging and cause age-related diseases like Parkinson’s disease, tauopathies, Alzheimer’s, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. How they do so is still not fully understood. Understanding the underlying mechanisms will be important for the development of therapeutic strategies. Recent groundbreaking discoveries have revealed new aspects of protein homeostatic and pathological mechanisms. These include the phenomena of protein phase transitions in membrane-less organelles and the existence of amyloid polymorphisms that are associated with protein toxicity. These phenomena are shared by a range of stress and age-related conditions. This Jacques Monod meeting will highlight these phenomenon, including the biological mechanisms and structural features involved. New findings will be presented by scientists that pioneered the research in these areas. Regulation of both physiological and disease-related transitions will be addressed as well as perspectives on biomedical applications.

The meeting will bring together leading experts in the fields of structural biology, cell biology, physiology and medical biology. It aims to foster exchange of knowledge across these fields and to stimulate interdisciplinary collaboration to further advance the filed.

Registration request and abstract submission deadline: JUNE 13th 2022 (might be postponed)

8th European Synapse Meeting – Coimbra 2022

The 8th European Synapse Meeting, which will be held in Coimbra on the 20th and 21st of October 2022.

The aim of this meeting is to bring together junior and senior neuroscientists working on synapses and to provide a forum for new directions and ideas in studying synapses in the healthy and diseased brain. The meeting welcomes participation from all scientists within and outside the EU and will combine research lectures by leading neuroscientists, selected talks and poster presentations.

The program will provide multiple opportunities for interaction, during the poster sessions, lunch time and coffee breaks, providing an opportunity for disseminating the latest advances and for cross-disciplinary discussion and collaboration. The meeting will be held at the São Francisco Convention Center in Coimbra, a unique setting that combines history and the best of the Portuguese architecture, and which will certainly contribute to inspire your future research and foster partnerships to address novel and challenging questions.

We look forward to welcoming you in Coimbra for an exciting meeting!
