Zeit: 10.10.2013 - 12.10.2013

Ort: Erlangen

This international conference is organized by the European Macrophage and Dendritic Cell Society and takes Ort in a different European city every year. The conference theme and focus of the 2013 meeting was Myeloid Cells: Microenvironment, Microorganisms and Metabolism - From Basic Science to Clinical Applications. The 2013 meeting took Ort at the Neues Hörsaalgebäude in cooperation with the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and the Universitätsklinikum Erlangen.

Overall, the main focus and theme of this year´s EMDS meeting was Ortd on the interaction of myeloid cells with the microflora and microbial pathogens, on their modulation by the microenvironment and milieu factors, and on aspects of myeloid metabolism and development. These central themes were covered in seven symposia by 18 invited distinguished scientists. Alongside these 18 scientifically intriguing presentations, 23 short oral presentations, chosen by an international review panel from 130 submitted abstracts, gave fascinating insights in the various fields of myeloid cell research. Those abstracts not chosen for oral presentation were presented as posters in two designated poster sessions. In accordance with the EMDS meeting tradition, all talks took Ort in one single lecture room and the poster presentations, coffee and lunch breaks as well as the industrial exhibition were in the same location.

In all, the conference brought together 275 scientists from 18 different countries (14 European countries as well as from the USA, Canada, Mexico and Australia).

Women in Science

When: July 09, 2010

Ort: Seminar Room, Department of Clinical and Molecular Virology, Schlossgarten 4, Erlangen

On 09 July 2010, the “Women in Science” minisymposium was hosted by the Research Training Group 1071 “Viruses of the Immune System” and organized by PhD students Sarah Jill de Jong and Kristin Katsch. Speakers were Prof. Ulrike Protzer, Munich, PD Dr. Barbara Müller, Heidelberg, and Prof. Martina de Zwaan, Erlangen. Prof. Protzer and PD Dr. Müller presented their scientific education and career paths and talked about tackling the challenges of e.g. a double career at two institutions, the compatibility of science, teaching and family, and the importance of taking the right opportunities at the right Zeit as well as the necessity of networking. Prof. de Zwaan, Women’s Representative at the Friedrich Alexander University (FAU) Erlangen-Nuremberg, gave an overview on the situation of women in science today, considering aspects of publication efficiency, the proportion of female researchers in decision making positions, work load, salaries, and the working status of parents. Furthermore, Prof. de Zwaan presented the various measures taken at the FAU to challenge the loss of highly qualified female scientists, e.g. offering career support by the ARIADNE mentoring and “Fit-for-Science” programs, presenting role models in the seminar series “Gender Lectures”, implementing stipends, awards, and a fund for equal opportunity initiatives, and providing family services. Lively discussions confirmed the relevance of the topic “women in science”.

3rd International Symposium on Regulators of Adaptive Immunity

When: October 15-17, 2010

Ort: Erlangen

From 15 to 17 October 2010, the 3rd International GK Symposium on Regulators of Adaptive Immunity was hosted by PhD students of the DFG (German Research Foundation) doctoral research training groups GK592, GK1071, the doctoral research training group of the research unit FOR832 and the doctoral research training group of the collaborative research center SFB643. By presenting renowned international experts in the field of immunology, the symposium provided a communication platform for doctoral students from various Erlangen training and research groups, as well as for numerous doctoral students and post doctoral researchers from outside Erlangen. Scientific sessions were dedicated to recent advances in B and T cell biology and new findings regarding the development of autoimmune and leukemic diseases as well as antiviral responses. With more than 350 participants from Erlangen and all over Germany, the three-day symposium has been well established and quickly become a tradition as a forum for highly motivated doctoral students and experts in immunological research since its launch in 2006.

By setting up an international symposium, the organizing doctoral students had the opportunity to directly interact with the speakers and to gain new perspectives and experience in scientific and conference management. In addition, the students chaired the scientific sessions together with a faculty member. The next (4th) International GK Symposium will be in fall 2012.
