GECKO Conference 2021
Epigenetic Inheritance across species
We are happy to invite you to register for the GECKO Conference – inspired by the Gametic Epigenetics Consortium Against Obesity (hence, GECKO). Professor Romain Barrès Head of the GECKO Consortium, and his research group will be hosting the conference, which will take place virtually between May 25-28, 2021. Sessions will be live daily from 8.00-10.30 and 17.00-19.30 CET.
The theme of the conference is intentionally broad. We will have sessions dedicated to the technical aspects of studying epigenetic inheritance, how we can use a comparative approach to understand inheritance mechanisms, the evolutionary explanations for epigenetic inheritance and a session focused on how our research could influence reproductive biology.
We already have a fantastic line-up of speakers, including Noora Kotaja (University of Turku), Qi Chen (University of California), Michael Wilson (University of Toronto), Isabelle Mansuy (University and ETH Zurich), Oliver Rando (University of Massachusetts), Anita Öst (Linköping University) and Tobias Uller (Lund University).
The conference format will include panel discussions, short talks selected from submitted abstracts, poster sessions and a set of short and sharp talks to accompany these.
Program at a Glance
The Gametic Epigenetics Consortium Against Obesity (GECKO) is a research consortium funded by a Novo Nordisk Foundation Challenge grant from 2019 to 2025. The main goal of the consortium is to understand the effect of diet on the epigenetic signatures that are passed through sperm to offspring, and the effect these signatures have on the developing offspring and future generations.
The GECKO is comprised of three leading research groups headed by Professor Romain Barrès at the University of Copenhagen, Professor Stephen Simpson at the University of Sydney and Professor Marcelo Nobrega at the University of Chicago.

Netherlands Respiratory Society Webinar Series
Science is about curiosity, blossoming of promising and novel ideas, getting inspired and connecting to other people. The NRS wants to provide and promote this for their members. Unfortunately, the NRS was not able to organize physical meetings in the past year due to the corona pandemic, while there was/is huge pressure on pulmonologists and scientists working in respiratory medicine. Therefore, we have set-up a new series of monthly online events: NRS Webinar, where you can acquire the latest updates within the lung field, and easily (re)connect with fellow members in our digital NRS cafe. During the NRS Webinar both a senior speaker and a junior speaker from different institutes will present their work at the online platform; sufficient time has been scheduled for discussions with the audience, via the chat or live. Every month a different theme is presented, and the program has been set up such that translational, clinical and more fundamental research is presented allowing for cross-fertilization of different research areas, various respiratory diseases and the latest technology applied.
For more in-depth discussions or small talk to catch up with researchers on the other side of the country, the NRS webinar is followed by networking time in the virtual NRS caffé. This is a virtual area in which you can join people sitting at a table in small groups and catch up on each other’s business, research activities, plans and challenging new hypotheses.
Please register here.
If you somehow miss the webinar, fortunately you can see the presentations later at a convenient time, as most presentations will be recorded and are accessible via the NRS website in the members area and here on Underline NRS page under the microphone icon/past sessions.
Hope to see you there,
Dr. Hermelijn Smits, President of the NRS

AIM Seminar Series 2021
Artificial Intelligence in Metabolism (AIM)
AIM is a seminar series that will explore the potential of data science in metabolic research. It is hosted by the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research (CBMR) at the University of Copenhagen. The seminar series takes place over three days in June and July, 2021.
Save the dates now: June 2nd, June 16th and July 1st!
To register for AIM 2021 Series, please click here.
Artificial Intelligence in Metabolism brings together renowned investigators to discuss how cutting edge data science can be best utilized to challenge current dogmas and catalyse better translation in metabolic and biomedical research.
Significant new discoveries in metabolic research increasingly rely on large-scale profiling, data integration and machine learning-based techniques. Not only can these techniques be leveraged to distil novel actionable biological hypotheses to be tested in relevant physiological contexts/clinical settings, they for example enable us to develop predictive tools to more effectively and timely identify at-risk individuals or personalized drugs/interventions.
At the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research (CBMR) we have set up enabling biology platforms that utilize sophisticated metabolomics, single-cell and data integration techniques to enrich our deeply phenotyped and genotyped patient cohorts. These data, along with the associated Danish longitudinal health register information, constitute a unique base to empower current and next generations of scientists to tackle the major questions in metabolic research.
We envision that data and machine learning models will be at the heart of future teams driving novel discoveries in metabolic research, through interdisciplinary approaches involving traditional biomedical scientists alongside data scientists, mathematicians and bioinformaticians. Please join us in our effort to discuss and incubate new ideas to better explore and model metabolic disease.
