Frontiers in Cryo-Electron Microscopy is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 02 - 05, 2021 at Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Description: The transition of cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) from a technology that was previously a useful tool to analyze large macromolecular assemblies, to one that can now successfully tackle structure determination of a wide range of proteins and protein complexes of broad general interest has been transformative. The structures of an impressive number of proteins, small and large, sometimes with extensive conformational spread, have been successfully analyzed by cryo-EM, although the landscape of macromolecular entities that are still intractable to analysis by cryo-EM remains immense. This meeting aims to bring together leaders in this emerging field who are defining the new frontiers of cryo-EM and future leaders who are rapidly beginning to adopt this new discipline and will likely drive future innovations in the coming decades. Speakers selected from academia, government and industry will cover applications of cryo-EM technology to fundamental problems in biology with particular relevance to cancer, neuroscience, microbiology and cell signaling, and discuss advances in method developments that are at the forefront of the field. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Respiratory Viruses: New Frontiers is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 05 - 09, 2021 at Willow Stream Spa at the Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Course Description: Respiratory viruses continue to pose medical challenges. The lung is susceptible to infection by multiple viruses each with unique mechanisms of interacting with the human host and evading the immune system. Respiratory infections are relatively easy to contract and are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Despite many years of study, our ability to prevent and treat these infectious is limited. This Keystone Symposia conference will focus on novel insights into respiratory virus biology that may ultimately lead to more effective prevention and treatment strategies. In many cases, these novel insights are made possible by new tools that are now available to study pathogens whose infectious cycle is largely restricted to the airways – making visible what was previously invisible. New information about virus host interactions will be discussed, as well as the interplay among diverse organisms present in the host airways. The long-term ramifications of respiratory virus infections beyond acute disease will be explored along with both recent successes and failures in prevention and treatment. This conference is a joint symposium with Viral Immunity: Basic Mechanisms and Therapeutic Applications and will have a few combined sessions. Finally, our conference will bring together scientists studying different respiratory viruses using diverse approaches from the perspective of the pathogens and host, recognizing that it is at the intersection of disciplines where opportunities for innovation and novel insight lie. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Viral Immunity: Basic Mechanisms and Therapeutic Applications is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 05 - 09, 2021 at Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Description: Viruses infection millions annually, causing severe illness and threatening global public health. Limiting the impact of viral infection requires a multi-layered understanding of viral immunity, from basic research on viral recognition and host immune response, to the clinical applications of novel antiviral and host-targeted therapies and vaccines. Despite recent advances, the mechanisms of both both rapid host recovery as well as severe and fatal disease outcomes, are far from clear. This Keystone Symposia conference will cover a wide range of topics in viral immunity including innate immunity and inflammation, viral sensing and antigen presentation, adaptive T and B cell immunity, novel vaccine development, human immunology across anatomical sites, and innovative computational analyses. Animal models will be examined alongside human and clinical studies, and multi-disciplinary integration will enhance perspectives. A key outcome will be fostering collaborations across different approaches such as viral models and host systems, and across different communities from academia to government to industry. The overall objective of this conference is to provide a unique opportunity for cross-disciplinary interaction and knowledge exchange. Joint efforts in understanding viral immunity are needed for the rational design and development of immunotherapies and vaccines towards seasonal, emerging, and re-emerging viruses. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Epigenetics, Chromatin, Development and Disease is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 21 - 25, 2021 at Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Course Description: Mechanisms underlying nucleosome- and chromatin-based functional control of genomes are studied increasingly broadly across biological systems. The research in this field impacts and informs basic biology and has translational importance in human disease. This meeting will encompass broad themes of chromatin mechanisms, including DNA and RNA modifications, histone modifications, ATP-dependent nucleosome remodeling complexes, histone variants, chaperones and others, as they intersect with cell identity, cellular and transgenerational memory, with genome function, with nuclear structure, and with biological questions/disease. The topics will also involve new emerging technologies and computational approaches to study chromatin and nucleosome structure, function and genomic location. We expect strong interest in this meeting along with the joint meeting in 3D genomics. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
