More than 120 leading researchers from across the molecular life sciences will speak at The EMBO Meeting 2010 - the second annual life sciences conference to be organized by the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and held in Barcelona from 4 - 7 September 2010.
Confirmed special lecturers and keynote speakers include:- Elizabeth Blackburn - Roles of telomeres & telemorase in health & disease
The EMBO Meeting 2010 advances the life sciences through broad programmes reflecting the concepts of modern biological research. It follows on from former ELSO meetings to provide an annual life sciences forum for scientific exchange in Europe.
Luis Serrano (Center for Genomic Regulation, Barcelona) and Denis Duboule (University of Geneva) are co-organizers of the scientific programme that spans the life science disciplines with keynote addresses and plenary sessions focused on three themes:
- Evolution of animal forms - Detlev Arendt, Alejandro Sánchez Alvarado, Marie-Anne Félix, Shigeru Kuratani
- Systems biology & functional genomics - Marc Vidal, Edward (Eddy) Rubin, Ron Weiss, Olivier Voinnet
- Signalling in development - Irma Thesleff, Kathryn Anderson, Christof Niehrs, Sarah E Millar
Workshops and daily poster sessions will extend the plenary themes and address additional current topics, ensuring a blend of subjects relevant to present-day molecular biology. Following is a selection of workshops and organizers:- Dynamics of chromosome organization - Susan Gasser & Wendy Bickmore
- Infection & autophagy - Ari Helenius & Sharon Tooze
Special sessions include:- Science & Society
Further information and online submission and registration can be found at the conference website: www.the-embo-meeting.org. Onsite childcare is available for attendees with young families.
A grant from the Robert Bosch Stiftung supports the participation of women at The EMBO Meeting 2010 as speakers and participants in the scientific programme and career day activities and for their use of onsite childcare facilities.
Complimentary meeting registration is available to members of the media who provide appropriate press credentials and identification via the conference registration system.
- All scientific sessions at The EMBO Meeting 2010 are open to registered members of the media.

The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) promotes excellence in molecular life sciences in Europe by recognizing and fostering talented scientists. Since 1964, leading scientists are elected annually to become EMBO Members based on proven excellence in research. Members number more than 1,400 today. Fifty-three scientists from the EMBO membership have received the Nobel Prize. Four leading peer-reviewed journals - The EMBO Journal, EMBO reports, Molecular Systems Biology and EMBO Molecular Medicine - span a broad spectrum of topics of molecular biology and reflect how science is shaping the world. 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.

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
An Australian-Chinese research team has created the world's thinnest hologram, paving the way towards the integration of 3D holography into everyday...
In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
