CRC 1182 Young Investigator Research Day, June 27th 2018, Kiel

CRC 1182 Young Investigator Research Day

June 27th 2018, Kiel

Young researchers discuss about “Origin and Function of Metaorganisms”


WELCOME

All animals and plants are inhabited by microbial organisms, which influence fitness of their plant and animal hosts, ultimately forming a metaorganism consisting of a uni- or multicellular host and a community of associated microorganisms. The Collaborative Research Centre 1182: Origin and Function of Metaorganisms (CRC 1182) investigates the specific functional consequences of the interactions, the underlying regulatory principles, and also the resulting impact on host life history and evolutionary fitness in an ever-changing environment.

The young investigators of the CRC 1182 invite Master students, PhD candidates and Postdoctoral researchers who are interested in the study of symbiosis and the related topics to join us in this conversation on metaorganism.

The Young Investigator Research Day will stimulate discussion and facilitate networking within young researchers who work in the area of host-microbe-environment interactions. Participants of any discipline are highly encouraged to present their research in a way that is understandable to a broad audience. Keynote lectures by Carmen Lía Murall, Christoph Reinhardt and Pamela Schnupf complete the scientific program.

The YIRD 2018 will be followed by a two day workshop on 16S based microbiota analyses (June 28th and 29th). The workshop will combine theoretical and practical parts aiming to cover the complete workflow of 16S microbiota profiling. Further information can be found here.

There is no conference fee!

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Carmen Lía Murall, CNRS Montpellier, France
Carmen is a postdoctoral fellow at Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) Montpellier, France. Her research aims to understand the evolutionary responses of viruses following vaccination using human papillomaviruses as a model and by employing ecological modeling approaches.

Christoph Reinhardt, CTH Mainz, Germany
Christoph is junior professor at the Center for Thrombosis and Hemostasis (CTH) in Mainz, Germany. His research focuses on the role of the microbiota in thrombosis and cellular homeostasis of the intestinal mucosa mainly using gnotobiotic mice.

Pamela Schnupf, INSERM CR1 Paris, France
Pamela is a team leader at Institut Imagine, Laboratory of Intestinal Immunity at the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM), Paris. Her research aims to better understand the interplay between the host and its commensal gut microbiota, specifically Segmented Filamentous Bacteria (SFB), which have potent immunostimmulatory effects. To that end she developed an in vitro culturing system for the previously unculturable SFB.


PRIZES
We are happy to announce that through the support of Qiagen we are able to provide two prizes for the best poster and the best oral presentation of the YIRD.
