We would like to welcome you to the FEBS Workshop on the Molecular and Cellular Pathways of Aging in Hematopoiesis! The Workshop is also the closing conference of the ARCH Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN Project. ARCH has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 813091.

The  Workshop will bring together basic, translational and clinical researchers to discuss key aspects of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell ontogeny, cell fate specification and self-renewal upon aging and malignant transformation. The relative importance of cell-autonomous genetic, epigenetic, transcriptional and metabolic hematopoietic regulatory mechanisms, and of the local bone marrow niche, or of systemic factors such as inflammation, will be discussed by expert in hematopoiesis, aging and stem cell biology. The culmination of innovative therapies, state-of-the-art technologies such as metabolomics and single-cell sequencing in different model systems to unravel essential regulators of hematopoiesis, will also be highlighted. The meeting will also showcase the clinical relevance of the hematopoietic system with aging and will demonstrate how findings from basic research in model organisms can lead to improved therapeutic application of cells and molecules. 

The training content of the Workshop is very strong and includes lectures by up-and-coming researchers as well as established leaders in the field. In addition to the seven sessions of the scientific program, the Workshop includes two focused sessions on Genomic Approaches and Functional Assays in Hematopoiesis, three Keynote Lectures and a meet-the-expert session. Lectures on Science Policy and Women in Science are also planned as part of the scientific program. There will also be plenty of opportunities for participants and speakers to mingle and interact. Last, but not least, the meeting will take place in the beautiful seaside Fodele Beach Resort near Heraklion in Crete.
