40th FEBS Congress 2015 – The Biochemical Basis of Life

09.02.2015

The German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) joins forces with the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) to organize the 40th FEBS Congress from Saturday July 4th to Thursday July 9th, 2015, at the Estrel Convention Center in Berlin, Germany.

With this joint congress covering the entire spectrum of molecular life sciences, GBM and FEBS expect to bring together a wide range of researchers from all across Europe and further afield to explore ‘The Biochemical Basis of Life’.

• Registration and abstract submission are possible via the congress website, http://www.febs2015.org.
• Please note the Early Bird Deadline for reduced conference rates is March 12th!
• To support participation of young scientists, a large number of bursaries are available.
• The Deadline for Bursary Applications is March 2nd!

The organizing team around Prof. Volker Haucke (FMP, Berlin) has created an outstanding scientific program for the Congress. Plenary speakers include Nobel Laureate Randy Schekman (Berkeley), Xiaowei Zhuang (Harvard), Jürgen Knoblich (IMBA, Vienna), Susan Lindquist (Whitehead Institute), Barbara Meyer (Berkeley), Sarah Teichmann (Cambridge), Alberto Kornblihtt (Buenos Aires), Nikolaus Pfanner (Freiburg), Matthias Mann (MPI Martinsried) and Caroline Dean (Norwich). The full speaker list is available at http://www.febs2015.org.

In addition, there will be special sessions and plenary discussions, e.g. on the future of scientific publishing, women in science, science & society, careers and education, as well as the Young Scientists’ Forum (YSF) immediately preceding the congress to promote interactions between pre- and post-doctoral scientists.

The Congress will offer ample opportunities for fruitful discussions, as well as the possibility to initiate collaborations and joint projects.

About GBM

With about 5300 members from institutes of higher education, research centers, and industry the Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (Gesellschaft für Biochemie und Molekularbiologie, GBM) is the leading body of bioscience experts in Germany.
The GBM represents the interests of all who work and research in the dynamic and promising disciplines combining chemistry, medicine, and biology – from first year students to heads of institutes, from junior scientists to Nobel Prize winners – and promotes research and teaching, the implementation of scientific findings in biotechnology and medicine, and their publication.
The international GBM meetings are a platform for sharing information on the latest developments in molecular biosciences with leading experts on the represented sectors. The network of contacts extends to all German universities and a large number of major research centers.

About FEBS

The Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) has become one of Europe's largest organizations in the molecular life sciences, with over 36,000 members across more than 35 biochemistry and molecular biology societies (its 'Constituent Societies') in different countries of Europe and neighbouring regions. FEBS thereby provides a voice to a large part of the academic research and teaching community in Europe and beyond. As a charitable organization, FEBS promotes, encourages and supports biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, molecular biophysics and related research areas in a variety of ways, with an emphasis in many programmes on scientific exchange and cooperation between scientists working in different countries, and on promotion of the training of early-career scientists. The FEBS website provides an overview of current aims and work: http://www.febs.org

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
