15th International Symposium on Viral Hepatitis and Liver Diseases (ISVHLD)

15th International Symposium on Viral Hepatitis and Liver Diseases (ISVHLD)

June 26-28, 2015 Berlin, Germany

In June 2015 the 15th International Symposium on Viral Hepatitis and Liver Diseases (ISVHLD) will be held in Berlin, Germany.

ISVHLD has a tradition of 43 years. Initially the focus was on discovery of hepatitis viruses, then it was the development of diagnostic procedures, vaccines, understanding pathophysiology and now therapies. In 2015 will be the time when many of the new direct antiviral agents (DAAs) against hepatitis C will be approved. However public health will become very important to identify the patients in need for therapy and to make these new therapies accessible to all parts of the world. Furthermore we still need to develop better finite therapies for hepatitis B and need to address many more burning issues of global relevance like hepatitis D and E.

This symposium is organized every three years moving around the continents. Basic scientists and clinicians will discuss the most recent advances made against the global health burden caused by all hepatitis viruses. For the first time the symposium will be organized in Germany taking place in its capital Berlin.

The goal of the meeting is to further the understanding of lymphoma pathogenesis and accelerate new therapies by providing a forum for scientific exchange and by developing a roadmap for lymphoma research. The meeting's objectives include:Establish a forum for the exchange of the state-of-science in basic and translational lymphoma research

Encourage networking among lymphoma researchers to enable more collaboration and synergy in the field

Foster collaboration and sharing of data and reagents among lymphoma researchers

Support relationships between academia and industry focused on chemical biology, immunotherapy, and other therapeutic approaches in the area of lymphoma

Establish a roadmap for lymphoma research to inform funding agencies and the public

The target audience for this meeting includes laboratory-based scientists, translational investigators, pharmaceutical scientists, and others interested in lymphoma science. The three-day meeting will include didactic sessions, abstract presentations, and interactive workshops/panel discussions.

International Symposium on Minority Health and Health Disparities
United States

International Symposium on Minority Health and Health Disparities

December 1–3, 2014 National Harbor, Maryland

The International Symposium on Minority Health and Health Disparities will convene December 1–3, 2014 in National Harbor, Maryland. Pre-Symposium Training workshops will take place December 1, 2014.

In keeping with the theme of the symposium, "Transdisciplinary Collaborations: Evolving Dimensions of US and Global Health Equity,” the scientific program will highlight the excellence and innovation in basic, translational, and clinical research from the programs supported by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD). The Symposium has been designed to offer opportunities for sharing research information in areas related to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity, cancer, women's health, mental health, infectious disease, stroke, and behavioral and community health with special emphasis on minority health and health disparities. We invite others who are engaged in clinical, translational, basic science, education, and policy research in minority health and health disparities to join us.

6th International Gamma Delta T-Cell Conference
United States

6th International Gamma Delta T-Cell Conference

May 16 - 18, 2014 University of Illinois at Chicago

We are very pleased to announce that the sixth biennial International Gamma Delta (γδ) T-Cell Conference will be held on May 16-18, 2014 in Chicago, USA. The International γδ T-Cell Conference is held every two years, and is the only forum for presentation and discussion of cutting-edge advances in the basic to translational aspects of γδ T-cell research.

Importantly, there will be a special opening section to celebrate the 30th year anniversary of the discovery of γδ T cells. Several pioneers contributing to the discovery of γδ T cells will for the first time give an historical overview of their discoveries in 1984-1987.

γδ T cells have broad function such as tissue homeostasis/ tissue repair and immune regulation/responses to cancers, inflammation/ autoimmunity, and infections contributing to immune resistance to tuberculosis. Recent studies have continuously made new discoveries about the biology and function of γδ T cells. Translational studies in clinical trials and pre-clinical proof-of- concept investigations continuously explore utility and efficacy of γδ T cell-based immunotherapeutic treatment of cancer patients and nonhuman primates with TB and other infections.

Topics that will be covered in the conference include Historical Overview of γδ T-Cell Discovery; γδ T-Cell Development and Homeostasis; Antigens and Ligands for γδ T Cells; Co-receptors and Co-stimulatory Molecules of γδ T Cells; γδ T Cells and Their Neighbors; γδ T Cells In Infections and Immunity; γδ T Cells In Inflammation, Tissue Repair, and Autoimmunity; γδ T Cells in Cancers; γδ T Cells and Immunotherapy.

We welcome all who have an interest in this very exciting and promising area of biomedical research.

Therapeutic Proteins and Antibodies: From Design to Function
United Kingdom

Therapeutic Proteins and Antibodies: From Design to Function

Wednesday, 18 June 2014 09:00 - 17:00 London, United Kingdom

This meeting discusses new developments in therapeutic protein and antibody engineering with specific focus on science and technology of modifying proteins and antibodies (and the conditions of their manufacture) toward specific predefined properties that allow them to act as effective biological drugs. Special emphasis will be placed on structure-function relationships, mechanisms of action, potency and efficacy in disease-relevant models and in clinical trials. There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and debate addressing the wide range of disciplines applied to the rapid and economical production of these molecules for biological therapies.

7th Annual Cell Culture Technology Event: Recent Advances, Future Prospect
United Kingdom

7th Annual Cell Culture Technology Event: Recent Advances, Future Prospect

Monday, 16 June 2014 09:00 - 17:00 London, United Kingdom

Cell culture has matured to become the pivotal technology in biopharmaceutical research, development and production, and its use in this and other areas continues to expand rapidly. In vitro models are replacing animals in many tests and assays; its enormous potential in the fields of stem cell and regenerative medicine has hardly started to be realized; its utility in research grows ever faster.

This conference will examine some of the latest applications of cell culture technology, some that are still “over the horizon”, and some of the problems that must be solved before it can reach its full potential.

Who Should Attend:

Biotech and Pharma Industry: CEOs, Chief Scientists, Group Heads, Senior and Junior Scientists, Research Managers

Academic and Research Institutes: Group and Lab Heads, Postdoctoral Scientists and Research Students

Cell Biologist, Graduate Student, Molecular Biologist, Physician Researcher, Postdoctoral Fellow
