8th EMBRN International Mast Cell and Basophil Meeting in Prague, 25th - 27th May, 2017


Dear friends,

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 8th European Mast Cell and Basophil Research Network (EMBRN) meeting, which is scheduled for Thursday, May 25th to Saturday, May 27th, 2017. 

The meeting will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, in the modern building of the Institute of Molecular Genetics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (AS CR). We plan to put together an exciting program covering many topics of mast cell and basophil biology ranging from plasma membrane receptors and molecular mechanisms of cell signaling and exocytosis to understanding inflammatory and other diseases, and pharmacological approaches for the treatment of mast cell and basophil-mediated diseases. Both, basic research and translational aspects of research will be covered. 

We encourage especially junior investigators (Ph.D. students, postdocs and researchers at early stage of their carrier) to join us to present their work. To this end, we included Young researcher sub-sessions to all major topics as an important scientific part of the meeting. Young researchers will present their work as posters, and those selected, based on the abstracts provided, will present their results as oral contributions. We have applied for support of this meeting from AS CR and, if successful, we will be able to financially support young participants selected for oral presentation of their data.

Beyond great science, many adventures await you in Prague, a uniquely cosmopolitan yet casual city. Experience the vibrant energy of the city’s Downtown, Wenceslas Square, Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, Jewish Quarter, and many other places as well as great restaurants and a lively entertainment scene. 

We are proud that we will have no registration fees for EMBRN members and a low registration fee for nonmembers (50 EUR for students and 100 EUR for others). If you are not an EMBRN member, please register at www.embrn.eu.

Join us in Prague! We are looking forward to seeing you!
