Gonçalo Castelo-Branco Group - Workshops and Conferences

Our lab regularly organizes conferences and workshops, such as The Developing Brain, Regulatory RNAs and the EMBO Workshop RNA Structure meets Function.

The Developing Brain

Gonçalo has been co-organising a doctoral course on the topic "The Developing Brain", together with Dr. Jens Hjerling-Leffler, Dr. Ulrika Marklund and Dr. François Lallemend.

This course has been associated with KI conferences on the same topic in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020.

The Dark Side of The Brain

The Nobel mini-symposium “The Dark Side of the Brain, Myelinating Glia in Central and Peripheral Nervous Systems” on October 9 and 10 2019 focused on the emerging roles of myelinating glial cells in the central and peripheral nervous systems and will gather leading scientists that are making fundamental contributions to and opening new avenues of research in this field. Organized by Gonçalo Castelo-Branco and Roman Chrast.

Epigenetics in the nervous system: development and disease

We organized a conference on Epigenetics in the nervous system: development and disease, together with Abcam and Dr. Ana Pombo. 1 - 3 October 2018, at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.

Regulatory RNAs

Our lab has organized in 2013, 2014 and 2015 a doctoral course in Regulatory RNAs in Development, Disease and Evolution, together with Dr. Andrea Hinas and Dr. Paulo Amaral. The 2013 edition took place at Karolinska and included a KI conference on the same topic. The 2014 edition took place at the University of Uppsala, Sweden, while the 2015 edition took place at Karolinska Institutet and included a KI conference on Regulatory RNAs and Chromatin.

EMBO Workshop "RNA structure meets function"

Gonçalo co-organised in June 2016 an EMBO workshop in the Stockholm Archipelago "RNA structure meets function”, together with Dr. Katja Petzold and Dr. Alessandra Villa. The three of us and Dr. Claudia Kutter have organised a workshop on the same topic in 2018 as well.
