More than 120 researchers will speak at The EMBO Meeting 2009 - the first annual life sciences conference to be organized by the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and held in Amsterdam from 29 August to 1 September 2009.
The EMBO Meeting 2009 advances the life sciences through broad programmes reflecting the concepts and high-resolution approaches of modern biological research. It follows on from former ELSO meetings to provide an annual life sciences forum for scientific exchange in Europe.
The deadline for abstract submission and discounted early registration for The EMBO Meeting 2009 is 25 April. Online submission and registration can be found at the conference website: http://the-embo-meeting.org. For delegates with young families, onsite childcare will be available thanks to a New Scholars' Grant from The Elsevier Foundation.
"EMBO is an established leader in stimulating and supporting scientific exchange across borders," said Hermann Bujard, EMBO Director. "The EMBO Meeting is an exciting opportunity for scientists, young and old, to come together to share the latest science, exchange ideas, forge new collaborations and develop new research projects."
Boasting a speaker faculty of more than 120 well-known names in molecular life sciences, The EMBO Meeting 2009 offers a programme that spans the life science disciplines with keynote addresses and plenary sessions focused on three themes: stem cells, signalling pathways and chromosome dynamics. Workshops and poster sessions will further extend these themes and address additional current topics, ensuring a blend of subjects relevant to present-day molecular biology.
Confirmed speakers include:
§ Rudolf Jaenisch - Stem cells, pluripotency & nuclear reprogramming
§ Svante Pääbo - Neanderthal genomics
§ Martin Rees - From 'Big Bang' to biosphere: a cosmic perspective (special 'non-life science' lecture)
§ Axel Ullrich - From Gene to Therapy: OncoGenomics-based cancer drug development
§ Shinya Yamanaka - iPS cells: perspective & challenge
§ Harald zur Hausen - Infections & human cancers: facts & perspectives
Conference participants are expected to come from Europe and worldwide to meet at the Amsterdam RAI convention centre from 29 August to 1 September 2009. Sponsored symposia and industry exhibits, career forums and skill development workshops, networking events, prizes and award ceremonies will complement the scientific programme.About EMBO
Leading peer-reviewed journals - The EMBO Journal, EMBO reports and Molecular Systems Biology - span a broad spectrum of topics of molecular biology and reflect how science is shaping the world. A new journal, EMBO Molecular Medicine, publishes original research offering molecular insight into the cellular and systemic processes underlying human disease.
EMBO funding, training and networking activities impact thousands of scientists every year, promoting collaboration in all areas of molecular biology - within its 27 member states, in Europe and neighbouring countries, and worldwide.

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...
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...

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.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
