EMBL Conference: Cancer Genomics

EMBL Heidelberg, Germany (4 Nov - 6 Nov 2019).

Conference Overview
This conference will provide an opportunity to learn about and keep up to date with the rapidly progressing area of cancer genomics. It will cover presentations from cancer genome projects, the areas of cancer functional genomics, systems biology, cancer immunogenomics and epigenomics, cancer mouse models and the translation and clinical impact of scientific results obtained. The meeting will bring together leading scientists from across these areas for a unique opportunity to interact and stimulate further integration of these efforts.

European cancer genomics research is particularly strong in the Heidelberg area, with three International Cancer Genome Consortium (www.icgc.org) projects being currently pursued with significant participation from Heidelberg institutions, including EMBL. As in our 2017 meeting, a large number of renowned speakers will be invited, with a strong representation of overseas speakers. The atmosphere at the conference will make this an exceptional event with cutting edge science, extensive scientific discussions and ample possibilities for meetings between and after sessions to facilitate in-depth discussions and new collaborations.

Session Topics
Cancer genetics and mutation
Drivers of cancer and genome-wide functional screens
Cancer genome and epigenome
Cancer and microenvironment: immunogenomics and single cells
Cancer genome medicine

Advances in Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine

EMBL Heidelberg, Germany (8 - 11 Mar 2020).

Conference Overview
Regenerative medicine is based on the ability of stem cells to repair tissue damage. The regenerative capacity of endogenous stem cells decreases with age, is impaired in degenerative diseases, and deregulated in cancer. Our ability to maintain and restore normal tissue function therefore requires that we understand not only the identity, properties and function of normal stem cells, but also the processes that alter their function during ageing, and in both malignant and degenerative disease. The aim of this conference is to provide a comprehensive overview of these aspects of stem cell biology. The cellular and molecular properties of normal tissue stem cells will be discussed, as will the properties of the niches that maintain them. We will address alterations to stem cell function during ageing and malignant transformation, and how stem cells can be used for regenerative purposes and for disease treatment.

Session Topics
Generation and maintenance of stem cells
Stem cell microenvironment
Systems analysis of stem cells
Stem cell ageing
Molecular mechanisms of ageing
Systems analysis of cancer
Stem cell-based therapies

REDBIO ARGENTINA 2013

VIII Encuentro Latinoamericano y del Caribe de Biotecnogía 2013. Mar del Plata, Argentina del 18 al 22 de Noviembre de 2013.
"Biotecnología y Sociedad: diálogos para un desarrollo sostenible" es el lema del VIII Encuentro para Latino América y el Caribe de Biotecnología REDBIO Argentina 2013.
La Biotecnología tiene un papel preponderarte dentro de las estrategias que la humanidad dispone para superar las vicisitudes a las que está expuesta. En lo que se refiere a la agrobiotecnología, se plantean grandes desafíos: incrementar la productividad de nuestra producción de alimentos y producir cultivos que requieran de una menor demanda de agua o que puedan sustentarse con riego de agua de baja calidad. Es necesario mejorar la calidad de los alimentos dándoles mayor valor nutritivo, pensando en el consumo de un mundo con más de 15.000 millones de habitantes en un futuro cercano. Por el lado de la energía, debe plantearse de manera urgente el reemplazo de los combustibles fósiles por fuentes renovables de energía (en cualquier de sus formas) y buscar las soluciones de compromiso para evitar que luna mayor expansión de la frontera agrícola y, sobre todo, ser cuidadosos de la biodiversidad.
Otros temas que estarán presentes en esta edición de REDBIO Argentina se refieren al uso de la biorremediación como una alternativa para el cuidado del ambiente, los avances en biotecnología animal, en la producción de fármacos (granjas moleculares), los progresos en biotecnología humana (las células madre y la ingeniería de tejidos y órganos) y el uso cotidiano de productos biotecnológicos en la industria y en el hogar.

Medicinal Chemistry Conference 2013

Medicinal Chemistry Conference 2013, July 17-20, CA, USA
With attrition still too high, and the drug discovery industry undergoing transformation and reshaping, the position of medicinal chemistry has perhaps never been so exposed and the demands on it so high. At the same time, where and how we carry out our drug discovery is also changing. However, the need for innovative new therapeutics which improve human health remains strong, so while this is a challenging period in drug discovery science, from adversity comes opportunity to improve the quality and creativity of our discipline, and extend our influence into new scientific applications. With this in mind, we have assembled a stimulating and exciting conference programme which reflects the full spectrum of modern medicinal chemistry practitioners - pharma, big and small, alongside biotechs, academics and contract research organisations, taking on the exciting challenges of new modalities, stem cells, chemical biology while still developing the very best techniques of drug design and computational techniques.
