EMBO | EMBL Symposium

Cell biology of the nucleus


This conference will take place at EMBL Heidelberg, with the option to attend virtually.

Registration is not yet open for this event. If you are interested in receiving more information please register your interest.

Conference overview

The nucleus lies at the literal and figurative heart of the cell – as the one organelle that all eukaryotes share, it is over 2 billion years old and integrated with every aspect of cellular function, from mechanosensing and genome regulation to membrane trafficking and cell division. Although the role of the nucleus in organising, housing and protecting the genome frequently takes centre stage, much remains to be discovered about the cellular physiology of this unique organelle studied in its own right rather than just as a passive scaffold for chromatin.

This meeting will bring together a group of scientists spanning the fields of biochemistry, membrane trafficking, cytoskeletal dynamics, cell division control and cellular biophysics to address the cellular roles of the nuclear compartment from a diversity of angles.

EMBL wishes to warn sponsors of EMBL conferences and courses of fraudulent schemes purporting to offer sponsorship opportunities on behalf of EMBL or affiliated with EMBL officials. One current scam campaign of which we are aware is conducted using the name ‘Judy Eastman’ (judy@gopcontact.a2hosted.com) and entails approaches to sponsors offering sponsorship opportunities on EMBL’s behalf. Please be kindly advised that all relevant communication regarding sponsorship of EMBL conferences, symposia and courses is handled by EMBL directly and is sent from an official EMBL account. EMBL does not work with any external providers on sponsorship acquisition.

Please also note that:

  • EMBL never provides attendee lists for purchase. Any offers of such are fraudulent.
  • EMBL will never call or email you to ask for your credit card details or to request a payment.
  • All payments are on invoice.

Suspicious communications purportedly from, for or on behalf of EMBL should be reported to EMBL at the following email address sponsorship@embl.de.
