EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Microtubules: From Atoms to Complex Systems

Impaired microtubule function can lead to human diseases including cancer and neurodegenerative disorders. In recent years, interdisciplinary approaches embracing cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology and mathematical modelling have made a tremendous impact on the microtubule field.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Defining and Defeating Metastasis

This symposium will cover emerging key concepts of latent metastasis and dissemination of tumour cells including evolution and genetic diversity of metastasis, circulating tumor cells, stemness, dormancy and stromal reprogramming, transcriptional and epigenetic control, motility and invasive signaling.

2nd Fusion Conference on Ubiquitin Function in Health and Disease

Focusing on the study of functional roles of the ubiquitin system, how it works to ensure normal signal transduction, what are the pathological consequences when it is perturbed and how we harness our knowledge for more efficacious treatment of diseases.
