8 March 2021 Cells Webinar | Nervous System Development and Plasticity in Model Organisms
As the central part of the nervous system, neurons process incoming information and transmit it to different parts of the body. Glial cells provide support and protection for neurons and are necessary for neural development, synapse and myelin formation and proper function of neurons. They also maintain the homeostasis of the nervous system as some population of glial cells can behave as neural stem cells during embryonic development and in adult stages.
During the development of an organism, the nervous system undergoes significant changes not only regarding its structure but also its function. Neurons, glial cells and the numerous molecular signals and components that are part of the nervous system, can play various roles during different stages of development and in different parts of the nervous system.
This webinar features several eminent experts in the field of nervous system development, maintenance and regeneration in different model organisms.
- Dr. Sepand Rastegar, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany
- Dr. Ciaran Murphy-Royal, Université de Montréal, Canada
- Dr. Laure Bally-Cuif, Institut Pasteur, France
When? 8 March 2021 at 5.00pm CET | 10.00am CST US | 12.00am CST Asia
9 April 2021 Webinar on Clinical Medicine | The Effects of Exercise on Memory Function
Memory function is a complex cognition involving multiple cognitive processes. Given the importance of memory on daily functioning, along with age-associated changes in memory, it is critical to identify effective behaviors that can enhance memory and its underlying cognitive processes.
As hosted by the Journal of Clinical Medicine, this webinar event will provide the latest perspectives on the effects and mechanisms through which exercise and cardiorespiratory fitness can improve memory function.
This webinar is suitable for students, researchers and clinicians interested in furthering their understanding of the role of exercise and cardiorespiratory fitness on memory function.
The distinguished panel of scholars includes:
- Dr. Paul Loprinzi from the University of Mississippi
- Dr. Marc Roig from McGill University
- Dr. Phillip Tomporowski from the University of Georgia
- Dr. Jennifer Etnier from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro
- Dr. Michelle Voss from the University of Iowa.
When? 9 April 2021 at 3.00pm CEST | 9.00am EDT | 9.00pm CST Asia
21–23 July 2021 Noncoding RNA World: From Mechanism to Therapy
It is a pleasure to announce the upcoming international scientific conference ncRNA 2021 – Noncoding RNA World: From Mechanism to Therapy, chaired by Prof. Dr. Rory Johnson from National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR ) “RNA & Disease”, University of Bern, Switzerland and Prof. Dr. Ling-Ling Chen from Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The event is sponsored by MDPI and the open-access journal non-coding RNA. Previously planned as an in-person event, we have decide to bring the conference to a fully online format, still to be held on 21-23 July 2021. The conference will be covering the following topics: Mechanism of ncRNA processing and function, Structure and bioinformatics of ncRNAs, ncRNAs in development and diseases, Biotechnology of ncRNA, and ncRNA therapeutics.
