18th Annual Conference on Vaccine Research

April 13-15 2015 Bethesda, Maryland

The Annual Conference on Vaccine Research (ACVR) provides high-quality, current reports of scientific progress and best practices featured in both invited presentations and submitted oral abstracts and posters. The ACVR brings together the diverse disciplines involved in the research and development of vaccines and associated technologies for disease control through immunization. By drawing upon an international audience of scientists and researchers, healthcare professionals and trainees, veterinarians, vaccine manufacturers, and public health officials, the conference is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas across a broad range of disciplines.    

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of the conference, participants will be able to:

• Discuss recent scientific advances contributing to the progress of vaccine development

• Identify research opportunities and scientific challenges associated with vaccine development, production, and distribution

Who Should Attend:

Healthcare professionals; public health officials, researchers; scientists; trainees; vaccine, diagnostic, and device manufacturers; and veterinarians

Catalyses in Drug Discovery Summit
United States

Catalyses in Drug Discovery Summit

February 26 - 27, 2015 San Diego, California

This summit will feature the following three conferences, which will happen in parallel:

Enzymes in Drug Discovery

Enzymes have proven to be an important group of drug targets in diseases, and enzyme inhibitors have been among the most successful of drugs. Join us as we discuss ways to overcome drug resistance to these inhibitors, and discuss breakthroughs in targeting historically undruggable enzymes.

Ubiquitin Research & Drug Discovery

This meeting will discuss how recent structural insights into ubiquitin have opened the door to other possibilities in drug discovery. Researchers will discuss hot topics such as phosphorylation of ubiquitin, particularly in Parkinson's Disease, DUBs as drug targets, and many more.

Protease Inhibitors in Drug Discovery

Proteolytic enzymes have always been on the forefront of cancer research, though scientists in the field are still working to overcome the challenge of specificity in drug design. This meeting will discuss new mechanisms of actions for better specificity and cover hot topics such as exosites, membrane-associated systems, and more.

We encourage you to sign up for a summit pass in order to get the most comprehensive look at research and drug discovery happening in the field. In addition to scientific presentations, dedicated networking sessions will allow you to connect and form new relationships with different people in the field and from both the private and public sector.

5th Ubiquitin Research and Drug Discovery Conference
United States

5th Ubiquitin Research and Drug Discovery Conference

February 26-27, 2015 San Diego, California

This meeting seeks to create a forum so scientists to discuss everything from advances in the basic science of ubiquitin to how these insights can influence the discovery of novel drug targets.

Sessions for the meeting will cover the hottest topics in the field:

I. Proteasome Structure and Function

II. Advances in Ubiquitin-like Modifications

III. Ubiquitin Proteasome System and Oncology

IV. Ubiquitin Pathways in Neurodegenerative Disorders

V. Deubiquitinating Enzymes as Drug Targets

VI. Novel Drug Targets in the Ubiquitin System

Please join us not only for updates on the latest scientific research, but also for networking sessions between colleagues from both industry and academia in order to get the most comprehensive exchange of ideas.

At this annual event, physicians, nurses, neurosurgeons, scientists, and drug/diagnostic developers from all over the world network and learn from one another.

The 2015 Conference

Following up on 2014’s successful conference and record-breaking attendance, the 2015 event will bring together the world’s leading TBI researchers and thought leaders to discuss the following:

• Clinical case studies to showcase gaps in treatment and discuss possible solutions

• Advances in neuroimaging (PET imaging, volumetric MRI, etc.)

• Lessons learned from failed TBI clinical trials

• Giving voice to the patient community

• TBI and CTE outcomes research

• TBI-related dementia and neurodegenerative diseases

• Use of biomarkers as surrogate outcome measures in TBI trials

• Biomarkers in diagnosis and drug development in TBI

• TBI international initiatives and natural history studies

• Challenges and solutions in the diagnosis of sport-related concussions

• Review of TBI pharmacology and product candidates in the pipeline

Key Questions Answered

• How can animal model results translate to clinical research?

• What are the key patient populations for future clinical trials?

• What outcomes should new clinical trials measure?

• How can companion diagnostics and biomarkers improve therapeutic interventions and outcome prediction?

• What are the regulatory barriers facing developers of both companion diagnostics and new therapies?
