THE 2016 MEETING OF EU COST ACTION BM1105 IS ORGANIZED IN BUDAPEST HUNGARY.
The past successful Scientific Meetings/Training Schools of the Consortium have been held in:
- Prato, Italy (2013)
This Training School was jointly funded by COST Action BM1105, FENS-IBRO, and Monash University (Melbourne, Australia). This meeting was organized by Vincent Prévot (France), Nelly Pitteloud (Switzerland), and Iain Clark (Australia). The school was intended to give to young scientists interested in learning about neuroendocrinology the opportunity to interact with renowned scientists and stimulate student discussions. Topics ranged from the genetic and molecular basis of neuroendocrine diseases, brain-endocrine interactions, to the role of metabolism and seasonal/circadian rhythms in reproduction. The program was well-received by students and was rated 4.5 out of a possible 5.
- Berlin, Germany (2014)
The Scientific Meeting and Training School was organized by Ulrich Boehm (Germany), Vincent Prévot (France) and Nelly Pitteloud (Switzerland). This joint Scientific Meeting and Training School was intended to give to young scientists interested in reproduction, neuroendocrinology and GnRH biology the opportunity to interact with leaders in the fields of kisspeptin neuron biology, regulation of GnRH neuron circuits, transcriptional repression and mechanisms of synaptic vesicle release and regulatory secretion. Participants rated this meeting 4.6 out of a possible 5.
- Prato, Italy (2015)
This combined scientific meeting and training school focused on translational research in the field of puberty, reproduction and GnRH biology. The program was organized by Iain Clarke (Australia), Vincent Prévot (France), and Nelly Pitteloud (Switzerland) and hosted at the Monash University Prato Center. The program included topics such as hormone pulsatility, early life origins of future metabolic/reproductive disorders, olfaction, hypothalamic inflammation, pituitary development and stem cells, hypothalamic inflammation, energy balance and reproduction and epigenetics. This meeting was rated 4.8 out of 5 by participants.
