The vifabio Calendar of Conferences and Congresses provides an overview of the most important upcoming events in biology, in chronological order. Only larger conferences and congresses of several days' duration are considered. Please take advantage of the options on the right-hand side to refine the list of events.
Genes to Cognition (G2C) is a neuroscience research programme with the dual aim of discovering fundamental biological principles and important insights into brain disease. G2C is an international collaborative program initiated by Dr. Seth Grant and supported by the Wellcome Trust following the discovery that multiprotein complexes formed by intracellular proteins and neurotransmitter receptors were important for neuronal plasticity and behaviour. Multiprotein complexes are involved with dozens of brain diseases, control multiple types of behaviours and are involved with the responses to drug treatments of mental disorders. Evolutionary studies show ancient forms of the complexes evolved over a billion years in single cell animals and may represent the origin of the brain. The long term goal is to understand the molecular basis of the extraordinarily complex brain of humans, how this complexity evolved, what it confers on behaviour and why brain evolution made us susceptible to mental illness. The G2C project has a unique database called G2Cdb that houses data resources from the research program and G2C has a very interesting educational program called G2COnline. ...

The 18th Annual Genes, Brain & Behavior Meeting will be held in Bar Harbor, Maine, USA, May 13-17, 2016. The meeting will be held at The Jackson Laboratory. Established as a non-profit research institute in 1929, the Laboratory’s focus is on the development and use of mouse genetic models to discover genomic solutions for human disease. JAX is internationally recognized as a center for mouse genetics research and has a long history as a repository for spontaneous and induced mutant strains. The Laboratory is located in Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island, Maine, site of Acadia National Park. The Jackson Laboratory has hosted courses and meetings since the late 1950’s and has an excellent reputation for the high quality of its conferences and workshops. ... [Information of the supplier]
The goal of this symposium is to promote interactions between researchers studying neural circuits both in traditional model systems (worm, fly, fish, mouse), in humans, and in diverse, emerging models to (i) discuss the origins, commonalities and differences of animal nervous systems, (ii) highlight the spectacular capabilities of neural circuits to control animal behaviour, and (iii) reflect on how technological innovations will open up new possibilities to understand and repair the nervous system. By bringing together a unique and eclectic mix of scientists studying nervous systems from the molecular to the psychological level, this symposium should stimulate novel cross-fertilisation of ideas and methodologies to understand neural circuit structure and function. ...

The 21st Annual Genes, Brain & Behavior Meeting will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland on May 10-14, 2019. The meeting will be hosted by the University of Edinburgh which was established in 1553 and boasts alumni such as Charles Darwin, Alexander Graham Bell, and Arthur Conan Doyle. Please join us for exciting scientific lectures, research presentations, workshops, as well as opportunities to share your work with fellow scientists. More information will be posted regularly in the coming weeks. ... [Information of the supplier]
