It’s not too late to enrol in one of EMBL’s most timely symposiums: The organism and its environment, to be held 9-12 May 2023 in Heidelberg, Germany. Virtual participation is also possible.

To attend in person, registration is closing very soon: 16 April.  However, one can still attend virtually by registering by 2 May.  

We are at the dawn of a new era in the life sciences during which we will start to understand how organisms function together and react or adapt to changes at different levels. This includes malnutrition and adverse climate events, as well as many other biological, chemical and physical impacts.

The symposium directly relates to EMBL’s 2022-26 programme, ‘Molecules to Ecosystems’, and has attracted scientists from a wide range of backgrounds who will offer unique perspectives into the multidisciplinarity needed to address some of the planet’s most challenging scientific questions. EMBL Director General and conference co-organiser Edith Heard talks about the motivation behind, and highlights of, the event in this blog article.  

The conference programme offers a robust curriculum that will address topics such as:
