Keystone Symposia: Asthma – From Pathway Biology to Precision Therapeutics
ID
833379
Dates
12 Feb 2017 - 16 Feb 2017
Location
Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract
Asthma affects people from childhood to old age and causes significant public health problems with great economic consequences. The type 2 inflammation pathway is considered the dominant mechanism of asthma, but clinical trials of recently developed treatments targeting this pathway indicate that large numbers of asthmatics do not benefit from this therapeutic approach. This limited effect of type 2 inhibitors, coupled with recent advances in our understanding of the clinical diversity of asthma, underscores the heterogeneous nature of the underlying disease mechanisms. The aims of this meeting are to focus on the heterogeneous disease biology of asthma and to explore how treatments can advance from a one-size-fits-all paradigm to one in which asthmatics receive personalized treatments based on biomarkers that classify their specific disease mechanism. The meeting program will combine cutting-edge presentations on the molecular mechanisms of inflammation and remodeling in asthma with others that address the complexity of clinical phenotypes of asthma, and will include updates on the application of new technologies to develop biomarkers to guide personalized treatment. Anticipated outcomes include greater understanding of mechanisms of disease other than type 2 inflammation and appreciation of the need to forge stronger collaborations between clinical and basic scientists to advance the goal of personalized asthma treatment. The overarching goal of the meeting is to bring together world-class researchers with expertise in immunology, cell biology and asthma disease biology to permit exchange of ideas and facilitate development of new scientific directions and therapeutic approaches for asthma.

Promoting Practical Public Health Skills Courses — Improving Practical Public Health Skills Courses – A Joint Initiative with Medical and Social Care Services and Joint International Academies of Research and Education (JIARE)
ID
859683
Dates
18 Feb 2017 - 20 Feb 2017
Location
Plovdiv, Bulgaria
Abstract
The need for preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through organised efforts and informed choices of society, organisations, public and private sectors, communities and individuals has been gathering pace in the ever changing World. The current public health agenda sets out a clear role for all healthcare professionals to be involved in improving the health of the population they serve. There is now the trend toward multi-professional working in public health sectors around the World. This is complicated by advances in medical practice and techniques, which meant that people are living longer with various health challenges. Public Health Workers are also required to be involved in research and education in order to improve their skills and techniques. The courses on Mastering Practical Public Health Skills are designed to equip professionals with the knowledge and understanding in order to face the challenges in public health and medical practice in the 21st Century.

Keystone Symposia: Malaria – From Innovation to Eradication
ID
833399
Dates
19 Feb 2017 - 23 Feb 2017
Location
Kampala, Uganda
Abstract
The evidence base and research agenda for malaria elimination and eradication are fast-evolving. Of foremost concern is the threat of resistance of the mosquito to pyrethroid insecticides and emerging data showing multi-drug resistance in Southeast Asia. An evolving area, with much to be understood, is the epidemiology of sub-microscopic infections and how they fuel onward transmission. There is also a lot of progress; for example, in the development pipeline there are candidates for a single-dose cure that can also provide protection and block transmission, and there are novel classes of insecticides. Finally, in implementation science, there is plenty to examine, from mass drug administration of anti-malarials to re-purposing ivermectin to reduce residual transmission. This Keystone Symposia meeting examines the scientific progress being made toward the goals of eliminating and eradicating malaria, from biological challenges and discoveries, to the development of the next generation of tools, to potentially transformative strategies to eliminate malaria. The ultimate goal of the meeting is to provide a unique and needed space for the malaria community to challenge hypotheses and share emerging data and insights from the different disciplines in a retreat-like setting where scientists can network, think creatively and exchange ideas. For the sustainability needed to meet the challenge of eradicating malaria, fostering these fruitful exchanges and lasting scientific partnerships is absolutely critical.

Keystone Symposia: Viral Immunity – Mechanisms and Consequences
ID
833345
Dates
19 Feb 2017 - 23 Feb 2017
Location
Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract
A clear understanding of the mechanisms of host immunity to virus infection will guide efforts to design better treatments for some of the most devastating diseases of humanity. The fields of virology and immunology often convene their own specialized meetings. However, each of these fields has matured to the point where the most transformative advances are likely to arise from cross-disciplinary insights, rather than from continued progress in an isolated area. This meeting will foster new interactions and generate new ideas by assembling international experts in the areas of evolutionary perspectives on the host-virus relationship, innate immune detection and control of endogenous and exogenous viruses, memory cell control of viruses at mucosal surfaces, immunological consequences of prior viral exposure, and new approaches to vaccines and therapeutics. This comprehensive and inclusive approach should spur new thinking. For example, a solution to the medically important issue of chronic viral infection and immune exhaustion may emerge from a better understanding of the history of these viruses and how they have shaped the immune response and vice versa over evolutionary time. Similarly, a rational approach to vaccine design must be rooted in the innate immune mechanisms by which cells detect and respond to virus infection. This Keystone Symposia meeting offers a unique opportunity to bring about the next advances in viral immunity through cross-disciplinary interactions.

Aging — 2nd Interventions in Aging Conference: Understanding Mechanisms & Compressing Morbidity in Aging Humans
ID
843016
Dates
02 Mar 2017 - 05 Mar 2017
Location
Cancun, Mexico
Abstract
A plethora of genetic, dietary and pharmacological interventions can extend healthy lifespan in laboratory animals, and can delay or ameliorate diverse aging-related diseases. Many of the signalling pathways involved are evolutionarily conserved, and are starting to be implicated in human aging. This raises the intriguing possibility of performing preventative medicine against the chronic diseases of our time by targeting the main risk factor for all of them, namely aging. Two important current challenges in the field are (1) to understand the downstream pathways by which longevity interventions combat age-related loss of function and pathology, and (2) to translate the findings into the extension of human healthspan.

SPAD 2017 — Special Pathogens and Associated Disease conference
ID
842235
Dates
27 Apr 2017 - 29 Apr 2017
Location
Ishaka Bushenyi, Uganda
Abstract
Africa have not yet recovered from the epidemic caused by the big three disease HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria and yet emerging and re-emerging disease pathogens such as Ebola, Nodding disease, ZIKA, SARS, and others are advancing their strategy to devastate and kill its victims. To be in control, we must be able to pilot and develop a system that can mobilize a competent team to predict and respond to any outbreak in any African region. This will help to prevent a repeat of the scale of death by Ebola in West Africa. This conference therefore will bring together the best brains in Africa and our friends from other continents to discuss the way forward with respect to resource mobilization capacity building and so on.
