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: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
