Countdown to the EMBO Meeting 2012
Date:9/10/2012

HEIDELBERG, 10 September 2012 More than 100 leading researchers from across the life sciences will speak at The EMBO Meeting 2012, the fourth annual life science conference organized by EMBO, which starts on September 22 in Nice, France. The conference attracts more than 1,200 participants from Europe and worldwide. Together with keynote speeches, special lectures and twenty concurrent sessions, the lineup represents a vast selection of the latest exciting developments from across the life sciences.

PROGRAMME HIGHLIGHTS

Highlights include Karl Deisseroth, from Stanford University in the United States, speaking about optogenetics a new technology that enables researchers to control genetically modified neurons with a brief pulse of light. Over the last several years, optogenetics has provided insights into the neural underpinnings of brain disorders like depression, Parkinson's disease, anxiety and schizophrenia. For their pioneering roles in optogenetics, Deisseroth and three other neuroscientists were awarded the 2012 Zuelch Prize by the Gertrud Reemtsma Foundation last week (http://www.mpg.de/1156268/Zuelch_Prize).

The session Genes to shape will deal with the mechanisms that control leaf shape during growth. Enrico Coen from the John Innes Centre in the United Kingdom will describe the first computer model able to accurately emulate leaf growth from the bud, work that was published earlier in the year in Science. Understanding how plants grow might help us better prepare for the future by providing food, fuel and preserving diversity.

Peter Carmeliet, Director of the VIB Vesalius Research Center at the University of Leuven, Belgium, will talk about the relationship between the growth of new blood vessels and the progression of cancer and other diseases.

Jiř Friml from Ghent University in Belgium will explain in his talk how the plant
