For the first time in its
history, the 2017 Annual CSMB Conference will concurrently highlight two
important biomedical themes, Systems Biology and Organelle Dynamics, to
help foster inter-disciplinary science and innovation. Thus, the 2017 CSMB
Conference will feature talks from national and international leaders in a
broad range of topics including but not limited to membrane biology,
trafficking, signaling, gene and regulatory networks and computational biology.
CSMB2017 will also cover health related topics such cancer biology,
regenerative medicine, rare diseases and neurodegenerative disorders. Our outstanding keynote speaker is Dr. Brenda Andrews (University of Toronto), a leader in
the field of functional genomics.
Beyond the slate of outstanding
invited speakers, more than half of the oral presentations will be selected
from submitted abstracts. There will also be the CSMB Award Lectures and Poster
Sessions. On May 17th prior to the official start of the conference, will be a
day of workshops for trainees on various themes and a mini-symposium focusing
on women in STEMs.
Hosting the CSMB Annual
Conference in Ottawa will allow us to highlight the ground-breaking research
that is occurring across our county to both our federal government and the
public. For the first time ever the CSMB Conference will also have an organized
slate of outreach events.
We have worked hard to
keep the meeting affordable and accessible, including a range of accommodations
in the heart of the capital. Register
early to enjoy savings. Registration
will open in January.
2017 is going to be a
year-long celebration for Canada and Ottawa is THE place to come
celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation. Including a closing night party at the Canadian
Museum of Nature in the Dinosaur Gallery.
Hope to see you in Ottawa
Other Organizations' Conferences
International Congress of Cell Biology 2018
Theme: The Dynamic Cell : From Molecules and Networks to Form and Function
January 27-31, 2018
The IFCB (International Federation for Cell Biology) and APOCB (Asian Pacific Organization for Cell Biology) are two of the primary international organizations for cell biology and their joint mission is to foster cell biology research and Cell Biology Societies in countries across the world. Consequently, the 13th IFCB congress and the 8th APOCB Meeting will be held in Hyderabad, India, together with the Indian Society of Cell Biology (ISCB) and its 41st annual meeting. This meeting also commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Asian-Pacific organization for Cell Biology.
This will be the first-ever joint meeting of these two International cell biology organizations, and will see cell biologists from across the world coming together to showcase and discuss their work.
Cellular dynamics: membrane-cytoskeleton interface
Organisers: Michael Way, Elizabeth Chen, Margaret Gardel and Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz
Date: 21st - 24th May 2017
Location: Southbridge Hotel & Conference Center, Massachusetts, USA.
DEADLINE DATE FOR APPLICATIONS IS 21ST MARCH 2017
The purpose of this meeting is to bring together a group of researchers studying the interface between membrane and cytoskeletal systems at different scales and perspectives using a range of model systems – a unique approach that is intended to bring together frontline research in these areas, stimulating discussions across the disciplines and fostering collaborative links between researchers. This meeting will reinforce some of the topics that are core to Journal of Cell Science.For more information: http://www.biologists.com/meetings/cellulardynamics2017/
Advanced Lecture Course on Oncometabolism
June 18-24, 2017
Figueira da Foz, Portugal | Hotel Mercure
It is our great pleasure to invite you to the “FEBS Advanced Lecture Course on Oncometabolism: From Conceptual Knowledge to Clinical Applications”, which will be held in Figueira da Foz, Portugal, on 18-24 June, 2017.
This 6-day course will provide the participants with a comprehensive overview of established and emerging topics in the fast growing field of oncometabolism. The scientific programme covers a wide range of topics, from basic concepts, to recent breakthroughs, advanced techniques and clinical applications.
Young and more experienced scientists will benefit from a combination of tutorials, designed to introduce a specific topic, with lectures on the latest developments, all delivered by some of the best international experts of this scientific field. The scientific programme includes Poster and Short Talk sessions, where the participants can present and discuss their own work, as well as a Meet the Expert session (over coffee, cheese and Port wine).
We are looking forward to welcome you to participate in this exciting course in Figueira da Foz, a lively town on the west coast of Portugal!
