FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE conference

Organising committee, FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE

Initially funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, the first four ENABLE conferences were held in the cities hosting the headquarters of the four entities leading the project: the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) in Barcelona, Spain; the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS) in Nijmegen, The Netherlands; The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR) in Copenhagen, Denmark; and the Scuola Europea di Medicina Molecolare (SEMM), in Milan, Italy.

In this new cycle of conferences, FEBS, IUBMB and the four core ENABLE institutions have joined forces to share ENABLE best practices with other international research institutions. To this end, in addition to the four core research centres, other institutions can apply to become associated centres and host one of the events. For the 2024 event, FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE will actively search for an associated centre in a non-European country to ensure that one of the events is held on another continent.

Günther Koraimann

Professor, University of Graz

Teaching interests: At the University of Graz, Austria, I am engaged in designing and executing curricula in molecular life sciences. We currently operate one bachelor´s and three master´s degrees in molecular and technical biosciences together with the Technical University of Graz. In these joint programmes in the framework of NAWI Graz there are currently about 1500 students. Research interests: Molecular Biology, Microbiology, bacterial diversity, gene regulation, genetic networks, horizontal gene transfer, antimicrobial resistance, type IV secretion
Xavier Coumoul

Professor in Biochemistry and Toxicology, Université Paris Cité

I am a Professor of Toxicology, Biochemistry and Cell Signaling at Université Paris Cité (former Université Paris Descartes). I have completed my PhD in molecular toxicology and a post-graduate year in Bethesda, MD. I am the head of a Master degrees in toxicology and ecotoxicology. My research is based on cellular and animal models and on three main axes: 1) the influence of persistent organic pollutants on breast tumorigenesis and metabolic disruption, 2) the contextual role of pollutants in the occurrence of chronic liver diseases including steatosis and fibrosis, 3) the effect of mixtures on the progression of neurodegenerative diseases. I am involved in the development of innovative pedagogy methods and technics in order to improve transmission, acquisition, memorization and utilization of scientific knowledge by our biomedical students. I used flipped classrooms, quizzes (at home and during courses) and virtual reality to interact and immerge with students in and outside the classroom. Indeed, I developed with pedagogic engineers, 1) Home-based 45’’ Quizzes to engage students in regular learning modes and 2) serious games on cell signaling and xenobiotic stress. Together, with Etienne Blanc, Caroline Chauvet and Frédéric Dardel, I wrote several French books of biochemistry and toxicology topics for undergraduate students. I collaborate with several national and international institutes and universities (CNAM Thierry KOSCIELNIAK, Université de Strasbourg Jean-Luc SOUCIET, National University of Singapore, Fun Man FUNG...) for the development of innovative methods in teaching.
