Other Autophagy Meetings

Session on Imaging in Autophagy Research (European Microscopy Congress 2020 [emc2020])

Date: 23rd – 28th August, 2020
Place: The Bella Center, Copenhagen (Denmark)

LSA.8: Imaging Self Eating – Autophagy under the Microscope

Autophagy is a life-supporting catabolic process conserved from yeast to man. It was originally described using electron microscopy, soon after the first electron microscopes became available for researchers. Genes and proteins regulating autophagy were discovered in the 1990ies and these findings were awarded with a Nobel prize to Yoshinori Ohsumi in 2016. The knowledge on autophagy proteins has made it possible to image this process in live cells and to combine live cell imaging with other cutting-edge microscopy methods including super resolution, electron tomography and focused ion beam scanning electron microscopy. Imaging has brought autophagy field forward more than any other methodology, with the exception of yeast genetics that revealed the identity of autophagy genes. We aim to invite the world leaders on autophagy research to demonstrate how different types of imaging technologies are applied in their work. The approaches are likely to include live-cell imaging, super resolution, focused ion beam scanning electron microscopy, electron tomography and immuno electron microscopy.

Autophagy: From Molecular Principles to Human Diseases

Dates: August 26 – 30, 2019

Place: Crieff, Scotland – UK 

About the workshop:
The aim of this EMBO Workhop is to integrate diverse perspectives on the function of autophagy from the fields of genetics, cell biology, oncology, infection and immunity, metabolism, neurodegeneration and drug discovery. We will provide the optimal venue for the promotion of exchanges between young and established scientists, clinicians and industry, to foster the growth of translational autophagy research.
