Keystone Symposia - B Cells and T Follicular Helper Cells – Controlling Long-Lived Immunity
ID
825286
Dates
23 Apr 2017 - 27 Apr 2017
Location
Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Abstract
B cells are fundamental for the development of long-lived immunological memory following exposure to infectious pathogens and, consequently, for the success of the vast majority of currently-available vaccines. The differentiation of B cells into the effector cells of serological memory – memory B cells and plasma cells – occurs in germinal centers. However this process critically requires a specialized subset of CD4+ T cells termed T follicular helper (Tfh) cells. The integration of signals required to generate germinal center B cells, memory and plasma cells, and Tfh cells are strictly controlled. This is to ensure the efficient selection of antigen-specific high-affinity effector cells, and to prevent the development of immune dyscrasias associated with GCs, such as autoimmunity, immune deficiency and malignancy – conditions that can develop when the complexities of lymphocyte differentiation in germinal centers are dysregulated. Despite the substantial advances that have been made in understanding the cellular, biochemical and molecular requirements for the generation of effective T-dependent B-cell responses, major questions regarding these processes remain. Answers to such questions are needed so as to be able to harness the intrinsic function of memory B cells, plasma cells and Tfh cells in order to enhance immunity in immunocompromised individuals, improve vaccine design and develop novel vaccines for infectious pathogens, as well as to attenuate humoral immune responses in the setting of autoantibody-mediated autoimmune diseases. This meeting will bring together basic and clinical immunologists to address unanswered questions and to discuss the latest cutting-edge breakthroughs in the biology of B cells and Tfh cells to facilitate development of new translational strategies of regulating their behavior in human immunopathologies.

Now you hear it, now you don’t: the neuroscience of deafness
ID
894298
Start date
15 May 2017
Location
London, United Kingdom
Abstract
What makes hearing possible? Just the size of a pea, the cochlea of the inner ear allows you to detect anything from a pin drop to a car horn. Groups of cells within the cochlea, and in particular the outer hair cells act as biological microphones to amplify soundwaves and allow your brain to understand a whole world of sound. For an ageing population it is critical that the outer hair cells last as long as possible for without them we become progressively deaf. How are the cells maintained and, importantly, what do we still need to know to preserve them for a lifetime? Professor Ashmore will explore how these incredible biological hearing aids work and you can join the hunt for the molecules that power them.

Keystone Symposia - Aging and Mechanisms of Aging-Related Disease
ID
825200
Dates
15 May 2017 - 19 May 2017
Location
Yokohama, Japan
Abstract
Populations are aging rapidly worldwide, particularly in Asia, driving a strong interest in aging/longevity research. This Keystone Symposia meeting will capture the cutting-edge front of this exciting field of science, covering essential aspects of aging/longevity research, including critical signaling pathways and regulators, inter-tissue communication, stem cells, stress and damage responses, cellular senescence, physiological rhythms, human genetics and mental well-being (happiness). Because aging is a systemic phenomenon, it is important to address various layers of the aging/longevity-controlling hierarchy, particularly focusing on metabolic regulation, including mitochondria, NAD+, oxidative stress, inflammation, protein homeostasis, autophagy and many other age-associated pathophysiologies. The outcome of these studies needs to be translated to resolve social and economic issues caused by rapidly aging societies. Novel therapeutic and preventive interventions have been explored and developed as a growing attempt to meet the unmet needs of our aging societies, and these new aspects of aging/longevity research and the gaps in knowledge between the basic science and practical applications will also be covered in the meeting. There is a growing body of evidence that our modern lifestyle, such as the heavy use of blue light in smart phones and tablet computers, affects physiological rhythms and metabolism, promoting age-associated diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cancer and depression. Therefore, it is now time to think differently about what we can do to deal with all these problems in light of recent progress in this exciting field of science.

Third FAO–IAEA International Conference on Area-wide Management of Insect Pests: Integrating the Sterile Insect and Related Nuclear and Other Techniques
ID
842537
Dates
22 May 2017 - 26 May 2017
Location
Vienna, Austria
Abstract
The successful implementation of area-wide pest management programmes integrating sterile insects with other control technologies against a number of key plant, veterinary, and medical insect pests is a peaceful application of nuclear technology. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have over the last 50 years played, and will continue to play, a critical role in supporting their Member States in the development and application of these environmentally friendly pest management methods.

The concept of area-wide integrated pest management (AW-IPM), in which the total population of a pest in an area is targeted, is increasingly being considered for related genetic, biological and other pest suppression technologies. Insect movement, occurring sometimes over long distances, is generally underestimated. As a consequence, most conventional pest management is implemented locally in uncoordinated action against only segments of a pest population, resulting very often in unsustainable control. On the other hand, an AW-IPM approach involves a preventive rather than a reactive strategy, whereby all individuals of the pest population are targeted in time and space, resulting in more cost-effective and sustainable pest management.

Abstract
Strategies to stimulate neuroregeneration and neurorestoration hold promise to vastly improve the treatment of a range of neurological diseases and injuries, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), spinal cord injury, and multiple sclerosis (MS). While progress has been made in understanding the cellular mechanisms of these processes, more research is needed in order to translate this knowledge into more effective treatments that restore function to the central nervous system.This 2-day convening will bring together leading researchers, clinicians, industry, and governmental stakeholders from around the world to explore neuroregenerative processes and identify strategies for translating knowledge into treatments for neurodegenerative diseases and nervous system injuries. Plenary sessions will be designed to present emerging basic and clinical research in the following areas: neurodegenerative disease-modifying therapies that slow progression; mechanisms of neuroplasticity, including the role of dendritic spines, axonal growth, synaptic plasticity, inflammation, oxidative stress, mitochondrial function, and autophagy; glial function in the central nervous system; cutting-edge strategies to promote and modify neurogenesis; and biomarker and imaging modalities for neuroregeneration. The conference will conclude with an interactive panel discussion exploring future directions, critical open questions, and promising therapies in the field of neuroregeneration and neurorestoration.

This SRC will highlight the latest research on mechanisms of ion channel regulation and its impact on the physiology of diverse cell types. A major goal of this conference is to stimulate discourse, seed new ideas, and facilitate collaboration in ways that will accelerate new discoveries about ion channel regulation at both the basic and translational levels. This conference aims to fuel the ‚engine of discovery‘ by bringing together scientists applying all of these diverse technical and conceptual strategies to study ion channel regulation across a range of different biological systems.  The program consists of nine scientific sessions and a keynote address, as well as two breakout sessions and lunches focused on trainee career development. Scientific sessions are organized around themes, rather than ion channel subtype, to foster crosstalk between fields, and will cover a variety of topics including: sensory systems and pain; regulation of neuronal excitability; regulation of gene expression; ion channels in disease; ion channel structure and drug development; recent advances in imaging and ion channel cell biology; regulation of the cardiovascular system and skeletal muscle; regulation of ER Ca2 stores and other organelles; celebrating Bill Catterall and ion channels.  Presentations in these sessions will be made by both new, up-and-coming investigators as well as established leaders in the ion channel field, including several members of the National Academy of Sciences. Each session will also include two short-talks to be selected from the abstracts, with an emphasis on presentations by graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, and junior faculty.

Abstract
The integrated pest management (IPM) has an important role in sustainable agriculture and quality food production by providing maximum economic yields to the farmer, while improving or maintaining the production site and protecting the environment. The procedures to improve economic yields while reducing inputs include: the integration of pesticides with cultural techniques for disease control; and biological, behavioral, and environmental controls of pests such as weeds. Especially biological and biotechnological control methods have a vital importance as the alternatives to chemical control in integrated pest management. Biotechnology promises to have a major impact on IPM through the use of recombinant DNA techniques to genetically engineer microbes for the control of diseases, insects, and weeds, and to generate plants that resist insects, pathogens, and herbicides. Global pesticide use has grown over the past 20 years to 3.5 billion kg/year, amounting to a global market worth $45 billion. The external costs of pesticides are $4–$19 (€3–15) per kg of active ingredient applied, suggesting that IPM approaches that result in lower pesticide use will benefit, not only farmers, but also wider environments and human health.

Belyaev Conference
ID
877849
Dates
07 Aug 2017 - 10 Aug 2017
Location
Novosibirsk, Russia
Abstract
July 17, 2017 is the date that marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Full Member of the USSR Academy of Sciences Dmitri K. Belyaev (1917–1985), an outstanding scientist, evolutionist and geneticist. In view of this memorable date, the Institute of Cytology and Genetics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the co-organizers will be holding Belyaev Conference. Belyaev authored an all-new chapter in the theory of morphogenetic processes that explores interactions between two main factors in evolution: variability and selection. In an attempt to find the answers, he launched a large-scale, still ongoing experiment aimed at reproducing the earliest stage of the animal domestication process, with the silver fox as the test subject. The key was selection for human-friendly responses in the fox. As a result, a unique, world-famous tame fox population was created.

Keystone Symposia: Vectors, Pathogens and Diseases – Current Trends and Emerging Challenges
ID
883506
Dates
10 Sep 2017 - 14 Sep 2017
Location
Durban, South Africa
Abstract
The elimination or eradication of several vector-borne diseases is high on the agenda of the World Health Organization, including malaria, lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis and trypanosomiasis. Sustainable vector control is currently the only mass prevention strategy. Success, however, is hampered by many challenges posed by both the vectors and the pathogens. These challenges include insecticide resistance in mosquitoes and drug resistance in parasites with little on the immediate horizon to alleviate these problems. Insecticide and drug resistance are two parallel phenomena in vectors and parasites. While combination drugs have been developed to overcome parasite resistance to monotherapies, only four classes of insecticides are available for vector control. The unexpected emergence of arboviruses such as Zika in Brazil and south-east Asia, yellow fever in southern Africa, Dengue and Chikungunya, etc. pose their own unique challenges. In addition, the difficulties in “going the final mile” to achieve elimination, in terms of surveillance, capacity and funding, will be addressed. The key goals of this Keystone Symposia conference are to review the latest scientific knowledge on vectors and pathogens that are responsible for emerging or re-emerging diseases, to highlight the problems facing various parts of the world, to address innovative methods for the control or elimination of vector-borne diseases and to enhance awareness of the landscape of vector-borne diseases and related new scientific knowledge aiming at improving the health of vulnerable human populations. It also aims to break down the “insect silos” in which the vector-borne disease research community too commonly operates, providing a forum for researchers to interact, create networks and partnerships, exchange ideas, and think creatively across disciplines.

Keystone Symposia: Maternal-Fetal Cross Talk – Harmony vs. Conflict
ID
883538
Dates
04 Oct 2017 - 08 Oct 2017
Location
Washington, D.C., United States
Abstract
The interactions between the mother and the fetus during the progression of normal pregnancy involve trade-offs, or even conflicts, between factors that improve maternal health and those that support fetal development and growth. These may lead to selective evolutionary pressures that differ among species, and result in intriguing differences in reproductive strategies that enhance maternal-fetal biological harmony, and mitigate conflict. Intriguing strategies to balance these pressures include imprinting, coincident with placentation. Adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as miscarriage, preterm birth, preeclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction, are heterogeneous, and gaps remain in understanding how imbalances between maternal and fetal adaptations contribute to these disorders. The goal of this meeting is to bring together investigators from diverse disciplines who investigate maternal and fetal factors that shape pregnancy outcomes by exploring how these systems work together or are at odds. The conference will aim to develop these concepts, illuminating developmental, genomic/epigenomic, immune, microbial and metabolic factors as well as consider how acute exposures during pregnancy, such as infection, shape maternal-fetal outcomes. Understanding the biology underpinning these considerations will contribute to better diagnosis, treatment and disease prevention during pregnancy. The presentations will address critical gaps in our knowledge of maternal/fetal harmony and conflict, and target paths to improve understanding of issues related to social, economic and geographic inequality that predispose some groups to enhanced risk during pregnancy. A better understanding of the biology, and development of new collaborative possibilities and paths to improved clinical outcomes, are primary goals of the meeting.

Keystone Symposia: Regenerative Biology and Applications – Cell Differentiation, Tissue Organization and Biomedical Engineering
ID
883548
Dates
15 Oct 2017 - 19 Oct 2017
Location
Pok Fu Lam, Hong Kong, China
Abstract
This four-day Keystone Symposia conference focuses on three important aspects of the rapidly developing area of regenerative biology: 1) The biology of the stem cell, with a focus on single-cell transcriptomics, deduction of cell lineage, pluripotency control and epigenetic regulation; 2) The tissue level, including the stem cell niche, organ generation, organoids and dysregulation of these processes in disease; and 3) Biomedical engineering and various types of disease modeling. The decision to focus on these three particular areas stems from a desire to keep the meeting focused rather than trying to spread thin over the entire realm of regenerative medicine, and at the same time provide insights into research fields where progress currently occurs at a blistering speed. The aim of the conference is to provide both late-breaking data for the experts in the fields as well as overviews in areas that will interest a broad scientific community. Across the three main themes, the aim is to blend talks on a range of organs, such as liver, heart, bone and skin, with talks that cover novel tissue engineering and organoid biology principles. Speakers from both academia and industry who are at the forefront in disease modeling, organs-on-chips and drug discovery will present. With this three-pronged thematic approach, the conference will be focused, yet broad enough to foster an exciting cross-disciplinary discussion among speakers and attendees, which will be highly stimulating for the regenerative medicine community in Hong Kong and the rest of the world. This is vital for training of the next-generation stem cell biologists and clinicians and to accelerate the pace at which basic science discoveries can be converted into clinical applications.

IPS2017 — 10th General Meeting of the International Proteolysis Society
ID
871298
Dates
27 Oct 2017 - 01 Nov 2017
Location
Banff, Canada
Abstract
From a cell’s birth during mitosis or meiosis to its death by one of the several modalities that exist, peptidases shape all activities of a cell’s life and, by extension, of all organisms. It is thus not surprising that most pathologies have proteolytic activity either as a cause or as a contributing factor. Despite the fact that peptidases have been the focus of intense scrutiny for more than 135 years (who doesn’t recall the 1880 work by M. Ad. Wortz on papain?), we still have much to learn, helped by genetics, ‘-omics’, chips, libraries, chemistry, cell biology, imaging tools and good old fashion biochemistry. With all that in mind and with new territories to explore, we propose Frontier in proteolysis as a meeting motto to highlight where we have been and where proteolysis research will lead us.

Dates
17 Apr 2018 - 20 Apr 2018
Location
London, United Kingdom
Abstract
The Endosomal Sorting Complex Required for Transport (ESCRT) machinery is an essential membrane-remodelling complex that is conserved throughout evolution as far back as archaea. Since their discovery in 2001 as regulators of cargo sorting to the yeast vacuole, work on the ESCRT machinery has exploded as our understanding of this machinery’s role in remodelling different membranes has grown.

Dates
03 Sep 2018 - 06 Sep 2018
Location
Berlin, Germany
Abstract
The FoodMicro 2018 Conference will take place in the Henry Ford Building of the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, from 3rd to 6th September 2018. The field of food microbiology has changed rapidly in the last decades and new methods help scientists all over the world to master the challenges of the 21st century. Socioeconomic changes necessitate changes in food production, supply, and handling. Previously unknown problems concerning spoilage and transmission of pathogens occur worldwide. Moreover, functional and novel foods gain importance and probiotic bacteria are in the focus of international research.

To merge these different research areas “Biodiversity of Foodborne Microbes” has been chosen as the common theme of the conference. Participants will be offered an excellent programme, demonstrating scientific diversity and subject depth. This will be achieved by utilizing the scientific expertise of the selected national and international committees, including the members of the International Committee on Food Microbiology and Hygiene (ICFMH).
