Biology: Bring it
together in Bonn.
are invited to be part of a forum to bring respiratory biological
research together, to discuss and build. Ours is a growing and vital
discipline. The future of Respiratory Biology lies in developing an
integrative approach and fostering an environment where researchers can
talk, listen and develop integrative projects on all aspects of
respiration. Rather than focussing on specific organizational level, we
aim to stimulate new research initiatives with a broad
A reaffirmation of the goals of "Respiratory Biology" as a clear and
distinct discipline will bring our research aims together, and will
allow not only the traditional horizontal networking but also vertical
networking, breaking artificial barriers between genetics, cell
biology, zoology, botany, medicine and many others. A glance at the
proposed list of topics will convince you that this meeting is like no
other that you have attended. Juxtaposed in the same session are talks
on intermittant breathing in insects and vertebrates or strategies for
dealing with hypoxia in organisms from different kingdoms. Gas
transport in plants is compared with that in animals.
The mainstay of the ICRB is a series of symposia: those emphasizing
integrative, multidisciplinary approaches will be granted preference.
In addition, posters and open sessions with short Powerpoint™
presentations will take place. Posters will remain in place throughout
the entire meeting. When the symposium topics and speakers have been
selected, registered participants will be asked which they would prefer
to attend in order to minimize overlap of interests in parallel
This conference is intended to provide the launching pad for future
meetings and to ensure that Respiratory Biology remains at the
forefront of worldwide research. The conference will be held from the
13th to the 16th of August 2006 in Bonn/Bad Honnef a spectacular region
along the Rhine Valley. We have ensured you will have plenty of
opportunity to visit the local area and perhaps sample some of the
world renown Rhine Valley Riesling.
So join with us and make the ICRB the first in a long series to come !
