Cell Bio Virtual 2020-An Online ASCB|EMBO MeetingDec 2 - 16 , 2020Virtual
This online joint meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) and the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) will focus on cell biology as the fundamental basis of biology, and will offer sessions on emerging topics, with opportunities for attendees to give virtual presentations on their research. NEW in 2020—Cell Bio Virtual will offer eight different tracks—seven scientific and one educational and professional development.
Keynote: Svante Pääbo, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology
5th HBP Student Conference on Interdisciplinary Brain ResearchFeb 1 - 4 , 2021Virtual
From February 1-4, 2021, the HBP Education Programme will organize the 5th HBP Student Conference on Interdisciplinary Brain Research. The conference will take place virtually over four days, with a versatile online schedule. Participation in the 5th HBP Student Conference is open to the entire student and early career researchers community, regardless of whether one is affiliated with the HBP. Participants are also welcome without actively contributing to the scientific programme. We encourage young scientists to register and aim at an equal gender representation.
Registration will open September 2020 free of charge.
Call for Submissions:
We invite original high-quality submissions describing innovative research in all disciplines addressed in the HBP. These contributions can emphasize theoretical or empirical works relating to a wide spectrum of fields including but not limited to: neuroscience, computer science, robotics, medicine, psychology, cognitive science or philosophy. We particularly encourage submissions with a potential to inspire collaboration in the research community by introducing new and relevant problems, concepts, and ideas, even if the work is at an early stage of development.
Abstract submission deadline: 6 November 2020
Training in Neurotherapeutics Discovery and Development for Academic ScientistsFeb 8 - 12 , 2021Virtual
Free to participants, this NIH-funded training program in neurotherapeutics discovery and development is an intensive four-day course that will provide trainees with the various knowledge elements required to discover and advance a neurotherapeutic agent to Investigational New Drug (IND) Application. The 2021 session will be held virtually due to the ongoing pandemic.
ASENT2021 Annual MeetingFeb 22 - 25 , 2021Virtual
The ASENT2021 Annual Meeting is the only unique forum in American Neurology which brings together divergent areas of effort from industry, academia, advocacy and government on one platform with open dialogue.

The Brain Conferences — Brain Stroke: Why, How, and HopeOct 24 - 27 , 2021Rungstedgaard, Denmark
Stroke is an age-related medical condition in which poor blood flow to the brain results in cell death, and is the second cause of mortality worldwide. While the disability associated with stroke can be devastatingly clear, why stroke occurs and how it kills the brain is less apparent. At this Brain conference, leading experts from both basic and clinical science will present advances that contribute to a deeper mechanistic understanding of stroke, including fundamental questions around: 1) risk factors: from single genes to holistic factors such as the microbiome, 2) the molecular pathobiology of stroke and the pathogenic role of immunity and blood-brain barrier breakdown, 3) neurovascular reorganization and re-wiring of connections after stroke damage, 4) the long term sequelae afflicting stroke survivors and the relationship between stroke and dementia, and 5) strategies to reduce the burden on stroke, ranging from prevention and acute therapy, to promoting functional recovery. A deeper mechanistic insight into these critical events will lead to new treatments and hope for those at risk and/or affected by stroke.
