Phase Separation and RNA Processing as Drivers of Cancer and Neurodegenerative Disease
ID
806911
Dates
24 Feb 2017 - 27 Feb 2017
Location
Carlsbad, San Diego, United States
Abstract
A significant challenge in clinical medicine, particularly in cancer and neurodegenerative disease, is the absence of pharmaceuticals that directly target the pathology. In cancer, well over 90% of mutations found in patient tumors are deemed ‘non-actionable’. Many proteins with ‘non-actionable’ mutations are investigated by scientists who study RNA biology, in particular abnormalities in post-transcriptional RNA processing. Biophysicists and engineers have made great strides in understanding biological phase transitions and the role of intrinsically disordered protein (IDP) domains, which have been implicated in both diseases and often described as ‘non-actionable’. This conference seeks to bring together disease-focused medical scientists, RNA biologists, and biophysicists in a truly multidisciplinary environment.

Keystone Symposia: Lipidomics and Bioactive Lipids in Metabolism and Disease
ID
833375
Dates
26 Feb 2017 - 02 Mar 2017
Location
Tahoe City, California, United States
Abstract
The ability to analyze large numbers of lipids from different categories (e.g., fatty acyls, glycerolipids, sphingolipids and sterols) has greatly advanced our understanding of their biochemical functions and roles in disease, but has also created challenges of scale. This Keystone Symposia meeting will cover areas of lipid research that have been particularly impacted by these technologies. It will specifically address the challenge of managing the large data sets generated by lipidomic technologies and conceptually studying them given how interconnected and cross-regulated lipid metabolic pathways are. Bringing together an outstanding group of scientists with expertise in the lipid categories as well as in lipidomic approaches, it will summarize recent findings for the major lipid categories from state-of-the-art technologies and lay the foundation for a broader understanding of new methods and the technical capabilities and limitations of these methods, as well as where better approaches are needed.

FASEB SRC — FASEB Science Research Conference for Autoimmunity
ID
869845
Dates
09 Jul 2017 - 14 Jul 2017
Location
Saxtons River, VT, United States
Abstract
Understanding immune tolerance and its breakdown is necessary to treat autoimmune diseases such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, uveitis, type 1 diabetes, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and many others. We bring together basic scientists with clinicians and industry experts to present and discuss new insights into the triggers, pathogenesis and therapy of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune disease. Eight major sessions will cover a broad range of topics in development, pathogenesis and therapy of autoimmune disease, starting with the effects of genetics and environment, through the role of innate and adaptive immune elements as well as the tissue itself, the role of commensal microbiome and metabolism, and finally translational research and clinical approaches. Each thematic session will feature 4 invited speakers and two talks selected from submitted abstracts. Participants have ample opportunity for interaction and discussion. Spontaneous mingling of junior and established scientists will be strengthened by meet-the-speaker sessions that allow discussions of both career issues and science. The intimate atmosphere, strong emphasis on communication and discussion, and a really close interaction between senior and junior scientists makes this conference unique and memorable to participants.

FASEB SRC — Genetic Recombination and Genome Rearrangements
ID
871119
Dates
16 Jul 2017 - 21 Jul 2017
Location
Steamboat Springs, CO, United States
Abstract
This SRC presents progress in research on diverse aspects of genetic recombination, a critical process that maintains integrity of the genome and that ensures the faithful transmission of the genome between generations. This conference focuses on the study of recombination mechanisms, the impact of recombination on genome integrity, and the influence of other DNA processes on recombination. Many of the recent advances in understanding recombination in normal, pathological, and environmentally stressed contexts have emerged through new combinations of experimental approaches spanning biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, genomics, and cytology. The agenda reflects the diversity of approaches currently used and is specifically geared toward identifying the emerging technologies and concepts that are moving the field forward. The meeting will focus on new, unpublished data in the field and will highlight connections between recombination and other cellular processes, including transcription, replication, cell cycle progression, and other branches of DNA repair. There will be presentations by researchers using diverse model organisms including bacteria, fungi, flies, nematodes, and mammalian cells, as well as in vitro biochemistry and structural biology. There will be many opportunities for interaction between established investigators and scientists who are new to the field, and a significant number of the plenary speakers will be chosen from submitted abstracts.

MFC17 — Microfluidics Congress: USA
ID
855092
Dates
25 Jul 2017 - 26 Jul 2017
Location
Philadelphia, United States
Abstract
At the intersection of engineering, physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, and biotechnology, microfluidics is revolutionizing the way patients are diagnosed, monitored and treated, and is unlocking the potential for reduced reagent consumption and thus, cost.

The conference will examine the latest developments in the technologies and techniques being used for progressing medical research, as well as the challenges and future of microfluidics.
