EMBO Workshop „The Inflammasomes“

We are proud to announce the upcoming EMBO workshop: “The inflammasomes”, which will be held at the Max-Planck-Institute in Martinsried (Munich) from September 25 – September 28, 2018.

We managed to put together a fantastic speaker line-up that includes some of the top scientists in this emerging field. Sessions will cover topics ranging from molecular mechanisms of inflammasome activation, to disease models, and up to therapeutic applications. To complement these fantastic scientific topics and to encourage networking, a range of social events will be held, including “Meet-the-PI” and a “Bavarian Night”. Further information regarding program, prices and registration can be found in the attached poster and on our website:http://meetings.embo.org/event/18-inflammasomes

We would especially like to encourage students to participate in this meeting by submitting an abstract. We have several slots for short talks available and also a number of travel grants that we can award. For early registrants, we have also reserved a number of reasonably priced hotel rooms on the campus.

Lecture Series “Science for Everyone – Research at the Campus Martinsried”


The Life Science Campus Martinsried is internationally known for the excellent research done here. In the lecture series “Science for Everyone”, campus PIs explain the goals and background of their research for a lay audience.
The lectures are held in German and of course free of charge.

If you’d like to receive an e-mail prior to each talk informing you about the date, speaker and topic, please send an e-mail with your name, e-mail address and topic “Science for Everyone” to Stefanie Merker: merker[at]neuro.mpg.de.
