"Image-based screening for new chromosome organizers"

Host: Giulio Superti-Furga

Biosketch

Daniel Gerlich obtained his PhD from University of Heidelberg in 2002. After a position as postdoctoral fellow at EMBL Heidelberg from 2002 to 2005, he joined the Institute of Biochemistry of ETH Zurich as an independent research group leader in 2005. In 2006, he was promoted to Assistant Professor and in 2012 moved to IMBA, Vienna, where he is a senior research group leader.

His research focuses on cell division, cell cycle regulation, and computational image analysis tools for live microscopy. The Gerlich laboratory at IMBA, Vienna, studies how cells reorganize their internal components during the cell cycle. We are particularly interested in the compartmentalization of the mitotic cytoplasm, the structure and biophysical properties of human chromosomes, and chromosome interactions with cytoskeleton and membranes.

Inaugural Event and Scientific Symposium of the Austrian Platform for Personalized Medicine

Van Swieten Hall of the Medical University of Vienna, Van-Swieten-Gasse 1a, 1090 Vienna

Personalized medicine is one of the grand societal challenges of the present and future. The Austrian Platform for Personalized Medicine has been initiated by the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW). It establishes a national networking platform that seeks to connect all stakeholders and interested parties in the field. The platform is open to all individuals and organizations that would like to contribute to the future of personalized medicine in Austria and beyond.

Participants are invited to submit abstracts with suggested contributions via the registration web page. Of particular interest will be poster presentations and booths by which relevant stakeholders will present themselves.

"RNA virus evolution: mechanisms and consequences during infection"

Host: Andreas Bergthaler

Biosketch

Raul Andino, Ph.D., is professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of California, San Francisco, where he specializes in RNA viruses, with a focus on molecular biology, immunology, and evolutionary biology. He received his Masters and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Buenos Aires. His research interests focus on RNA virus replication, pathogenesis and evolution. His work examines at a molecular level the mechanisms of viral replication, such as protein synthesis, genome replication, and viral particle formation and their interplay with cellular processes. He studies the host strategies that control virus infection, including innate immune responses, such as RNAi and the mechanisms that the virus has evolved to suppress the host antiviral responses. Lastly, in a unique combination between experimental and computational techniques, he is developing novel and exciting approaches to study virus population dynamics and evolution at the molecular and genomic level.
