3rd European Calcium Channel Conference

The European Calcium Channel Conference 2018 will focus on voltage-gated calcium channels and other structurally related ion channels involved in calcium signaling in excitable cells. Like in the successful first two conferences in 2012 and 2015 it will bring together the leaders in the field and young researchers to discuss the latest developments in ion channel research.

Location: Congress Centre Alpbach, Number 246, 6236 Alpbach, Austria
Confirmed Speakers: K.B. Beam, M. Biel, E. Carbone, W.A. Catterall, H. Colecraft, N. Dascal, I. Dick, A. Dolphin, M. Dell‘Acqua, J. Engel, V. Flockerzi, B.E. Flucher, J.W. Hell, A. Koschak, A.

11th Molecular Biology of Hearing and Deafness conference 2018

We would like to announce the ‘11th Molecular Biology of Hearing and Deafness Conference’ to be held from May 16th to 19th 2018 in Göttingen, Germany. This international conference serves the exchange of researchers about the latest developments in the field. Here, besides the identification of so-far unknown deafness genes, new methods of exome- / genome-analysis will be presented. Advances in the identification of gene-function-relationships will be discussed as well as the role of specific genes in the molecular physiology of hearing and in age-dependent hearing loss. Speakers will also cover potential strategies for gene therapy and prepare the transfer of the results from basic research into clinical application. The conference is hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in cooperation with the Collaborative Research Center 889.

Location: Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, Am Fassberg 11
Confirmed Speakers: Jörg Albert, Karen Avraham, Mike Bowl, David Corey, Sally Dawson, Albert Edge, Robert Fettiplace, Bernd Fritzsch, Lisa Goodrich, Eri Hashino, Michelle Hastings, Jeffrey Holt, Dan Jagger, Katie Kindt, Hanni Kremer, Sharon Kujawa, Brigitte Malgrange, Mireille Montcouquiol, Cynthia Morton, Régis Nouvian, Lavinia Sheets, Richard Smith, Karen Steel, Guy van Camp, Henrique von Gersdorff, Catherine Weisz.

Barrels and beyond 2018

This ‘Barrels and beyond 2018‘ meeting in Göttingen in May 2018 is organized to bring together leaders in the field, to reflect the state of current knowledge and to develop further methods and concepts that will enable to understand the cellular mechanisms of sensory perception, decision making and goal-directed behavior at a mechanistic, circuit-based level.

Location: Max Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine, Göttingen, Herrmann-Rein-Str. 3
Confirmed Speakers: Alison Barth, Michael Brecht, Solange Brown, Randy Bruno, Christiaan de Kock, Kenneth Harris, Fritjof Helmchen, Jean-Sebastien Jouhanneau, Thomas Klausberger, Siegrid Löwel, Rebecca Mease, Nathalie Rochefort, Massimo Scanziani, Cornelius Schwarz, Joshua Trachtenberg, Jianing Yu
