Dear colleagues! IVM Symposium is the world’s only event dedicated solely to in vivo two-photon (multiphoton) imaging, a revolutionary technique that combines high resolution (in the nanometer scale) with high relevance that comes from imaging inside the living organisms. Last year’s event received raving reviews. We shall keep the old format combining lectures, practical training and a small exhibition. This year’s impressive line-up of new speakers includes: Alberto Diaspro Italian Institute of Technology/University of Genoa Olga Garaschuk University of Tuebengen, Germany Elizabeth Hillman Columbia University, New York, USA Mark Huebener Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, Germany Chester Mathis University of Pittsburgh, USA

The world's largest data set on human genetic variation, the 1000 Genomes Project, is now available for free through Amazon Web Services. The arrangement with Amazon, spearheaded through the US National Institutes of Health, makes data from sequencing the genomes of more than 1,700 people accessible through Amazon's cloud. Any scientist with an internet connection will be able to access all 200 terabytes of the data set in the cloud, avoiding the need to acquire additional bandwidth or data storage capacity. “It's a very large amount of data,” says William Spooner, chief technology officer at Cambridge, UK–based Eagle Genomics, which provides bioinformatics services for mining genomics data. http://www.nature.com/nbt/journal/v30/n5/f...c_id=NBT-201205
START A CAREER IN HIV RESEARCH: THE INTERNATIONAL AIDS SOCIETY TOGETHER WITH THE U.S. NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH, AND THE CENTERS FOR AIDS RESEARCH INVITES EARLY-STAGE INVESTIGATORS TO APPLY FOR AN HIV RESEARCH GRANT
The International AIDS Society (IAS), in partnership with the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the NIH-supported Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR), launched a new round of the joint research grant programme, Creative and Novel Ideas in HIV Research (CNIHR).
The CNIHR programme supports projects intended to advance the scientific understanding of HIV by exploring new approaches to pressing scientific questions on such issues as the long-term survival of individuals with HIV infection, mechanisms behind establishment of viral reservoirs, new approaches for the prevention of HIV transmission, and innovative models of health care delivery. It is designed to promote innovative research and new ideas from early-stage investigators whose primary focus has previously been in fields of scientific inquiry other than HIV/AIDS. It aims at recruiting and training tomorrow’s leading HIV researchers from across many areas of science, whose work will benefit not only HIV, but other fields of research as well.
The first step of the competitive application process is open on the CNIHR website (www.cnihr.org) and will close on 17 October 2011. Applicants will be asked to complete a two-step process to assess the quality of their research projects. Awardees will be selected by mid-April 2012.
Successful applicants will be invited to the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012), in Washington D.C. 22-27 July 2012, where they will be officially awarded. They will also have the opportunity to attend an HIV orientation seminar with leading experts and take part in a networking session during the conference.

16thCIMO WINTER SCHOOL "Building blocks of life: from biomaterials to living organisms"
12 - 17 March 2012, Finland
The Centre for International Mobility CIMO invites applications from Russian and Ukrainian postgraduate students for participation in the 16th Winter School organized during 12 - 17 March 2012 at Tvärminne zoological station of the University of Helsinki.
The goal of the Winter School is to enhance the mobility of young researchers and postgraduate students between Finland and the participating countries and to increase the cooperation between the universities. Before applying for participation in the 16th Winter School, the applicants are expected to contact one or more scientists/research group leaders at Finnish universities to discuss a possible project with them. Expression of interest by the Finnish host will be considered an advantage during the selection process.
Those Winter School participants who will be invited to Finland after the Winter School by Finnish research teams will be offered a scholarship from the CIMO Fellowship programme. The invited participants of the Winter School will be expected to come to work or study in Finland for 3 to 18 months. In 2011, the monthly amount of scholarship was 1200 euro.The Centre for International Mobility CIMO invites applications from Russian and Ukrainian postgraduate students for participation in the 16th Winter School organized during 12 - 17 March 2012 at Tvärminne zoological station of the University of Helsinki (http://luoto.tvarminne.helsinki.fi).

In the era of Plant Genomics the amount of DNA information of crops has increased enormously. As a consequence, more effective and reliable phenotyping data has become the bottleneck for modern genetic crop improvement. Therefore Plant Phenotyping has become a major field of research in plant breeding.
In order to meet the challenges of this very new and promising field of research new technologies such as greenhouse automation and plant imaging systems are needed.
The PhenoDays 2011 International Symposium exactly addresses the Phenotyping bottleneck by providing stimulating talks from internationally renowned keynote speakers from the seed industry, breeding institutes and academic breeding groups working in the Plant Phenotyping research area.
This will surely be a great opportunity for the researchers from all over the world to meet and exchange their ideas, approaches and results in Plant Phenotyping research.
Besides the interesting scientific presentations the PhenoDays will also offer the opportunity to participate in practical workshops at one of the biggest Plant Phenotyping Research Facilities in Europe: The PhenoFab in Wageningen only 10 min. from the conference venue Hof van Wageningen.
Science Careers is conducting a survey of postdoc supervisors to learn more about what makes for a successful postdoc experience and to explore industry trends. The overall results of this survey will be published in the 26 August 2011 issue of Science.
If you supervise postdocs, would you please help us by taking our survey, which takes about 20 to 25 minutes to complete? In return, we'll enter your name in a drawing for one of 10 $50 Amazon gift certificates. All individual survey responses will be kept strictly confidential.
Label and Label-Free Technologies in Synergy Webinar
You are invited to view our panel of experts on Wednesday, March 2, 2011, in a live, online educational seminar, "Label and Label-free Technologies in Synergy: Creating a Powerful Approach to Drug Discovery."
Date: Wednesday, March 2, 2011 Time: 12:00 noon ET; 9:00 a.m. PT; 5 p.m. GMT Duration: 1 hour Register now and submit your questions LIVE to the experts during the webinar! For more information and complimentary registration visit: www.sciencemag.org/webinar
Label-free technologies have gained wide acceptance in both academic research settings and in drug discovery laboratories in recent years. With the advent of faster and more accurate label-free technologies, and their pairing with traditional systems for labeled detection, the use of highly sensitive medium to high throughput cellular and biochemical assays in microplate format is now routinely possible. This advance offers scientists a fuller picture of their system under study and speeds the screening of compounds for drug discovery. This webinar will explore in depth the pros and cons of combining traditional label technologies with label-free assays, a so-called orthogonal approach.
During the webinar, our panelists will:
Provide an overview of the various label-free technologies available Discuss how label-free technologies can be applied in drug discovery research Share their experience using a combination of label-free and traditional labeled detection systems Answer questions from webinar viewers live and in real time.
