Champalimaud Research Symposium 2019

TISSUE ENVIRONMENT
IN HEALTH AND DISEASE

The IUBMB Focused Meeting, 2019 Champalimaud Research Symposium Tissue Environment in Health and Disease will be held in Lisbon, Portugal from the 8th to the 10th of October 2019. The Symposium will address how intrinsic and extrinsic environments impact on tissue homeostasis and will take the form of a scientific meeting, with 17 invited speakers, several talks selected from abstracts and poster sessions. We are delighted that Professor Elaine Fuchs and Professor Richard Locksley kindly agreed to be our keynote lecturers, heading a diverse list of distinguished speakers.

The topic will be highlighted from different angles and include discussion on the homeostatic mechanisms that underlie inflammation, injury, ageing and oncogenic transformation in different tissues of our body. Invited speakers will therefore cover aspects from immunology, cell signaling, genetics and tissue regeneration in different model organisms. 
The Symposium will be held at our Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown on the waterfront in central Lisbon. We expect that the unique venue, together with an exciting list of invited speakers, will foster a lively and stimulating scientific meeting.

THE CHAMPALIMAUD CENTRE FOR THE UNKNOWN

Inaugurated on October 5th 2010, the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown is now a part of the important riverside area of Belém, near the magnificent Tower of Belém. This area, where the river Tejo meets the Atlantic Ocean, is of great historical significance as the great Portuguese pioneers sailed from this location to discover the “unknown” in the XV and XVI centuries.

The presence of the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown leverages this historical heritage by creating an inspirational link between the discoveries of yesteryear and the epic adventure of scientific research. Here, everything converges in the creation of a unique atmosphere for the development of the most advanced multidisciplinary and translational research in the field of biomedicine. The building’s contemporary architecture, along with its functionality, offers outstanding conditions to investigators, academics and health professionals, from Portugal and beyond, to carry out work oriented towards excellence and practical results.

The Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown covers an area of 60,000m2 facing the river Tejo and comprises three large areas. The main building houses the Champalimaud Clinical Centre’s diagnostic and treatment facilities, an indoor garden, research laboratories and administrative services, all interlinked to promote discussion and collaboration between scientists, clinicians and other professionals. A tropical pergola-covered garden is at the heart of this structure.

The Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown is a state-of-the-art facility for science, medicine, technology and public use.
