  • Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease

    21 - 22 February 2019

    Brugge, Belgium

    Type 2 Immunity in Homeostasis and Disease https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/type-2-immunity-in-homeostasis-and-disease Type 2 inflammation rich in eosinophils, basophils and mast cells and orchestrated by Th2 lymphocytes has been mainly studied in the context of allergies and immune responses to helminths. Since the discovery of type 2 innate lymphoid cells there has been a strong interest in understanding how type 2 immunity is induced and regulated, for example by barrier epithelial cells. Given the recent introduction of new biologics that target type 2 cytokines to treat severe allergic disease, we are accumulating a lot of new insights on type 2 immune responses in humans as well. This meeting will not only focus on new effector and regulatory mechanisms of the type 2 immune response. It will also offer a number of talks taking a broader look on type 2 immunity, dealing with such topics as type 2 immunity in homeostasis, growth and repair, metabolism, neuro-immune interactions and cancer. Understanding these alternative roles for type 2 immunity will be important to address the benefits and potential pitfalls of long-term inhibition of type 2 immunity by biologicals and could elucidate new therapeutic pathways for very common diseases like asthma, obesity, diabetes and cancer. Abstracts can be submitted for the following topics: Tissue homeostasis and repair Type 2 Neuro-immune axis Type 2 in allergy, asthma & helminth infection Type 2 Immunity & Cancer Deadlines: • Early Bird: 10 January 2019 • Late Registration: 7 February 2019 • Abstract deadline: 19 December 2018 2019-02-21 08:00:00 UTC 2019-02-22 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences OLD ST.

  • The Brain Mosaic: Cellular heterogeneity in the CNS (2nd edition)

    10 - 11 October 2019

    Leuven, Belgium

    The Brain Mosaic: Cellular heterogeneity in the CNS (2nd edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/the-brain-mosaic-cellular-heterogeneity-in-the-cns-2nd-edition Recent advances in technology now allow us to explore multiple aspects of heterogeneity at the single cell level. Nowhere is this more important than in the Central Nervous System (CNS), where cellular heterogeneity has profound effects on all aspects of normal brain function and behavior and explains important aspects of disease pathology. With the second edition of the Brain Mosaic conference we aim to bring together leaders in this emerging discipline to discuss how it is advancing our knowledge of CNS function and disease. Speakers at this neuroscience meeting on ‘single cell’ will emphasize the multi-disciplinary nature of the field in several sessions: • Single cell sequencing and cell diversity • Spatial transcriptomics • New developments in technology and bioinformatics • CNS sequencing and relevance to disease research • Connections an activity Poster information: Format: A0 (841 x 1189 mm / 33.1 x 46.8 in), portrait orientation Deadlines: • Early Bird: 8 September 2019 • Late Registration: 26 September 2019 • Abstract deadline: 29 August 2019 2019-10-10 08:00:00 UTC 2019-10-11 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat, Leuven, Belgium KU Leuven - Promotion & Jubileumzaal, Naamsestraat 22, 22, Naamsestraat Leuven Vlaams-Brabant Belgium 3000 Bioinformatics Transcriptomics Sequencing [] Evy Vierstraete +32 9 244 66 11 conferences@vib.be [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] Single cell sequencing Sequencingcell diversitySpatial transcriptomicsTranscriptomicstranscriptomicsAlzheimers Clinical Trials And StudiesAlzheimers DiseaseAmnesiaAnimal Models In DementiaAnxiety Autoimmune Disorders & Multiple SclerosisBehavioral IssuesBiopsychiatry Blood-Brain BarrierBrain DiagnosisBrain Disease & FailureBrain InjuryBrain TumourCentral Nervous SystemCerebrovascular DiseaseChild NeurologyClinical NeurophysiologyCNS TumorsCognitive DisordersDementiaDementia CareDemyelinationDiagnosis And TherapyEpilepsyGenetics Genetics And Epigenetics Geriatric NeurologyGut- Brain AxisHeadacheIntervention NeuroradiologyMeningitisMental HealthMental Health NursingMetastatisMovement DisordersMultiple SclerosisMultiple Sclerosis DiagnosisNervous SystemNeural EngineeringNeural EnhancementNeuro-Oncology NeuroanaatomyNeuroanatomyNeurocritical CareNeurodegenerationNeurodegenerative DisorderNeurodegenerative DisordersNeurogeneticsNeuroimagingNeuroimmunologyNeurological DisordersNeurological Disorders And StrokeNeurological InfectionsNeurological SurgeryNeurologistNeurologyNeuromedicinesNeuromuscular MedicineNeuronal AutoantibodiesNeuropathyNeuropeptidesNeuropharmacologyNeuroscienceNeurosurgeryNeurotoxicologyNeurotoxinsNeurotransmissionNeurotransmittersParkinsonParkinsons DiseasePediatric NeurologyPharmacology Psychiatry Psychology PsychoneuroimmunologyRecent Research And Case StudiesRehabilitation TherapyStem Cell Treatment For Neurological DisordersStrokesTraumatic Brain InjuryCNS sequencing disease researchbioinformatics• New developments in technology
  • VIBes in Biosciences 2020

    Leuven, Belgium

    VIBes in Biosciences 2020 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/vibes-in-biosciences-2020 The VIBes in Bioscience PhD conference is an initiative from the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology (VIB) that takes place in Belgium. The organizing committee consists of motivated VIB PhD students, who bring together young and ambitious scientists from all over the globe to enjoy a series of training workshops and a top-quality conference. Selected speakers are renowned in different Life Sciences research fields such as inflammation & immunology, plant biology, cancer biology, structural biology, neuroscience and microbiology. Workshops The Symposium is preceded by half a day of workshops to improve your personal effectiveness, communication skills and awareness on possible career opportunities. We have invited internationally renowned trainers to share their experience and knowledge with you. Note that you need to register separately for the workshops, after registering for the symposium. The number of seats for each workshop is limited, so make sure to choose your two favorite workshops in time. Take a look at the VIBES 2020 workshops program for more info. Travel Grants We offer 50 travel grants to international PhD students, which will reimburse travel costs up to 200 euros. Travel grant awardees will also receive a discount on their registration fee and accommodation will be covered for adjacent nights. Are you interested in attending VIBES2020 and want to have a chance on a travel grant? Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 15 November.
