EMBO Workshop Molecular neurobiology 13 – 17 May 2024 | Heraklion, Greece

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.

Public cible

All participants will be selected based on their match with the scientific scope of the meeting. We will aim for a geographical, junior/senior and gender balance. In addition to the invited speakers, we will select 18 speakers from submitted abstracts. When selecting these speakers, we will prioritize “early stage” researchers, aiming for a balance of students, postdocs, and new PIs. As an “early stage” we will consider researchers with ~ < 7 years post-PhD. We will take special circumstances into account, for example, if maternity leave has delayed a research career.
