IUBMB TRAINEE INITIATIVE

The IUBMB Trainee Initiative hosted their first event with attendees in 31 countries log on for a lively and engaging presentation.

The recording is now available in case you missed it!

A webinar onDrs David Baker and Brian Koepnicktalk about computational structural biology, how you can help science by solving protein structures at home with Foldit, and advice on how to follow this scientific path if it interests you!

UPCOMING IUBMB DEADLINES

There’s still time to submit anabstractand theearlyregistration deadlinehas been extended toApril 12.

Open Call for host institutions for
FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE Conferences in 2024
The FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE Conference is a 3-day international and interdisciplinary winter event for PhD students and postdocs, hosted at a different research institute each year. The FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE are now inviting applications from academic institutions (either a university or a research institution) to host the November 2024 conference in any country with an IUBMB Adhering or Associate Adhering Body (except those allowed in 2023). We are looking for academic institutions with a strong research background in molecular life sciences and an active PhD community. This event will be organized by a committee of young researchers belonging to the 5 ENABLE institutions. It will be organized following the standards and structure of theprevious ENABLE events. FEBS and IUBMB will fund the event up to a sum of €65,000.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED
APR 15: host the 2024 event to any country with anIUBMB Adhering or Associate Adhering Body,except those allowed in 2023

FEBS Junior Sections initiative
This April talk is organised byHDBMB Young Scientists’ Forum, the junior section of theHDBMB.
Speaker: Prof. Igor Stagljar, from the University of Toronto, Canada
Topic: “My story about life, science and success”
Time:14 April 2022, 19:00 (CET)
Registration link

Formore information, see the presentation abstract below and visit theSagljar lab webpage.

Professor Stagljar is one of the world leaders in the field of proteomics/chemical genomics, developing high-throughput technologies to facilitate the study of the protein-protein interactions of various human membrane proteins involved in cancer. The research in his lab has led to the development of the Membrane Yeast Two-Hybrid and the Mammalian Membrane Two-Hybrid (MaMTH) technologies, both of which have revolutionized membrane proteomic research. As of recent, Stagljar lab adapted MaMTH into a drug screening platform and has been directing its research efforts into SARS-CoV-2 diagnostics.

In 2015, the University of Toronto honored Prof. Stagljar with “Inventor of the Year” award for his contribution to Canada’s innovation agenda and the advancement of knowledge. As principal investigator, Prof. Stagljar secured over $38 million in research funds since he moved to Canada (in 2005) and has co-foundedDualsystems Biotech Inc,a world-leading company in the field of interactive proteomics, and a new Toronto-based biotech start-up company namedPerturba Therapeutics.

We invite you to theRNAs in gene control across kingdoms, taking place May 2-5, 2022.

This international meeting will be a unique opportunity to welcome remarkable scientists and to highlight RNA research in Strasbourg within a stimulating and international environment. It will cover two related topics: RNA regulation and the genetic code in translation. This meeting is also organized for the achievements of Prof. Eric Westhof who has initiated and coordinated the NetRNA labEx (Networks of regulatory RNA across kingdoms in response to biotic and abiotic stresses).

We are delighted to announce the IUBMB Jubilee Lecture isProfessor Sarah Woodson.

Research targeted at defining conditions for healthy ageing is key to developing sustainable future societies. Moreover, regenerative medicine continuously strives to develop treatments and, as a long-term goal, cures for a variety of age-related disorders. The2nd FEBS Workshop Ageing & Regenerationwill bring together experts working at the forefront of science in both ageing research and regenerative medicine / stem cell biology.

*Maximum number of participants: 100

This Summer School is one in a series of biennial SFRR Free Radical Schools. This year, it is being organized as a FEBS Advanced Course in partnership with SFRR-Europe and IUBMB and is sponsored by OCC and ProMoAge.

The course will focus on examining how changes in redox signalling trigger adaptation and the crucial roles of key adaptive processes in preventing cellular degeneration. Emphasis will be given on the role of redox regulation in biological ageing and redox-related models of disease at the molecular, cellular, and organismal levels.
