Dr. Dario Protti, “tbd”

University of Sydney School of Medicine, Australia
Host: Prof. Dr. Tim Gollisch

October 17th - 20th, 2018, Max Delbrück Communications Center, Berlin

Ion Channel Meeting

The ‘Ion Channel Meeting‘ will cover the latest findings in the field of Force Gated Ion Channels. The meeting will cover the role of these mechanically-gated channels in hearing, touch, pain, proprioception, vascular remodeling, bone growth and osmosensation. Participants will hear the latest research on how these channels function and shed light on the molecules that build these channels, convey energy to them and interact with them. The conference will bring together internationally recognized leaders in their fields and is aimed at fostering scientific exchange between participants as well as supporting young and emerging scientists by providing the opportunity for them to present their newest and most exciting data in a short talk format.

Location: Max Delbrück Communications Center, Robert-Rössle-Str. 10, Berlin
Confirmed Speakers: David Corey, Miriam Goodman, Martin Göpfert, Gary Lewin, Ulrich Müller, Yuh Nung Jan, Ardem Patapoutian, Kate Poole.

October 26th - 27th, 2018, Max Planck Institute of experimental Medicine, Göttingen

Flying Senses Symposium

The ‘Flying Senses‘ Symposium in Göttingen in October 2018 will highlight recent advances in the understanding of the processing of sensory information, using the genetic model organism Drosophila.
It will bring together people working on different sensory modalities, including vision, olfaction, hearing and mechanosensation, and aim to discuss the current status of research and work out fundamental principles of sensory processing. Using flies as a system allows to shed light on the molecular and cellular properties, neurophysiological features, and how these link to circuit function and behavior, allowing for an integrated view on sensory processing.
The conference is hosted jointly by the Collaborative Research Center 889 and the European Neuroscience Institute Göttingen.

Location: Max Planck Institute of experimental Medicine, Göttingen, Herrmann-Rein-Str. 3
Confirmed Speakers: Jörg Albert, Jan Clemens, Claude Desplan, Bertram Gerber, Martin Göpfert, Ilona Grundwald-Kadow, Carlotta Martelli, Alex Mauss, Michael Reiser, Dierck Reiff, Silke Sachse.
