Dates: 18 - 21 Mar 2018  Registration: 15 Feb 18  Abstract: 15 Jan 2018  Event webpage: www.embl.de/training/events/2018/GLI18-01/index.html  AimsThis workshop will bring together expert and novice researchers studying microglia physiology in health and disease in an interactive meeting format that promotes the latest work in the field. The study of microglia cells has seen an explosion of activity and interest in the last five years, with large numbers of new researchers entering the field driven by the advent of new imaging and genetic tools that have allowed the visualisation and manipulation of microglia in the context of the intact brain.The workshop will highlight the latest research by including a large fraction of speakers from among submitted abstracts. It will also bring together researchers with diverse technical and scientific expertise in order to stimulate interdisciplinary research at the boundaries of traditional fields and will feature ample opportunity for informal interaction among participants.  Contact: events@embl.de  Location: EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany  Website: www.embl.de
