Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting 2015
20-22 May 2015, Florence, Italy
The second Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting at Convitto Della Calza, Florence, Italy 20-22 May 2015 will showcase integrative structural biology and its impact on biological research. The program will include sessions that represent recent advances on structural biology toward cellular biology, emerging methods and technologies and results of biomedical importance.
Confirmed speakers are: Wah Chiu (Baylor), Patrick Cramer (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München), Marc Baldus (Utrecht University), Teresa Carlomagno (EMBL Heidelberg), Sriram Subramaniam (NIH), Edward Arnold (Rudger), Helena Käck (Astrazeneca) and Anne-Claude Gavin (EMBL). A session will focus on Instruct in the wider context of integrated European infrastructures. Eero Vuorio, Director of Biocenter Finland (BBMRI) and David Stuart (Instruct director, University of Oxford) have confirmed their participation to speak in this session. Young scientists who want to know where structural biology is and where it is going are especially encouraged to attend. Instruct a biomedical ESFRI projects has been offering access to structural biology infrastructure since 2012.

Product Lifetimes And The Environment (PLATE)
17-19 June 2015, Nottingham, UK
Nottingham Trent University is pleased to be hosting the first international conference to examine Product Lifetimes and the Environment (PLATE) in the context of sustainability. This ground-breaking event will include keynote presentations, discussion, debate and workshops, an exhibition and gallery of artefacts, and a gala dinner.
The conference will review current research on how and why increased product lifetimes have become an important element in resource efficiency, waste reduction and low carbon strategies for sustainability. Academic researchers, industry representatives and policy stakeholders will share knowledge and experience on the influence that product longevity has on environmental, economic and social sustainability.

Researchers who have had the experience of moving to Europe temporarily or permanently and who will share their experience with you
Information about the practicalities of moving to Europe (scientific visa, mobility centres etc.)
An exhibition space to provide additional information
24th Annual International Society of Exposure Science Conference
12-16 October 2014, Cincinnati, USA
Our theme is Exposure Science Integration to Protect Ecological Systems, Human Well-Being, and Occupational Health. Our program will foster the integration of exposure science as applied to community, occupational, and ecological health as recommended by the NRC Exposure Science in the 21st Century. We plan to highlight the value that exposure science has brought to the protection of health and the environment and its growing importance in the face of such global threats of population pressure, climate change, nitrogen cycling, water and energy availability.
