Next Generation Sequencing: Towards Single Cell Analysis

Next Generation Sequencing: Towards Single Cell Analysis

10th & 11th March 2015 INGM (Instituto Nazionale Genetica Molecolare) Milan, Italy

This Next Generation Sequencing conference highlights the developments of using NGS in the usual application areas such as Epigenetics, Transcriptomics, Exome/Genome Analysis etc whilst moving from analysis of tissues and biofluids towards single cells and limiting amounts of RNA and DNA.

Next Generation Sequencing is a very powerful genomic tool that is opening up new possibilities when it comes to tackling human health issues.  Whether it is the effect of the environment on the DNA (Epigenetics) or the expression of individual genes in single cells (single cell transcriptomics) or the meaning and significance of data from NGS Panels, Exomes or Genomes, researchers are driving the applicability of NGS to its limits.

Biotexcel is partnering with leading genomics institutes in Europe to help push the boundaries by facilitating dialogue and dissemination of knowledge in a way that enables researchers to come together, network and initiate the next generation of collaborations using NGS.

In line with this philosophy Biotexcel is thrilled to announce our partnership with Dr Sergio Abrignani CSO of the National Institute of Molecular Genetics in Italy to hold NGS 2015 Milan: Towards Single Cell Genomic Analysis. NGS Milan 2015 is a gathering not to be missed; it is our virtual R&D ideas hub for those who want to take the limits of NGS further.

Developing a Rights-based Approach to TB

Developing a Rights-based Approach to TB

December 5-6, 2014 Center in Delhi, India

TB and Human Rights

The global TB crisis remains at epidemic proportions. In 2012, there were approximately 8.6 million new cases of TB and 1.3 million deaths from TB—nearly 3,600 deaths a day. An estimated 26% of all global incidences of TB occurred in India alone. The central truth about the TB crisis in India is that social and economic factors and structural barriers drive the epidemic. A rights-based approach to TB will focus on the underlying social and economic determinants and establish the rights of people living with and vulnerable to TB. The approach will articulate the legal obligations of governments and non-state actors, such as private health providers and drug manufacturers, to ensure good quality TB testing and treatment are available and accessible. And it will focus on the state’s obligation to effectively regulate the health sector and ensure adequate, equitable and sustainable funding for TB prevention and treatment.

Conference Details

In an effort to generate and promote thought, dialogue and policy actions surrounding a rights-based approach to TB, the organizers will hold a conference 5-6 December, 2014, in New Delhi, India, at the University of Chicago Center in Delhi. The conference will be co-hosted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).  The organizers hope to include stakeholders and partners from India and around the world. Participants will range across a number of disciplines and professions, including medical professionals, lawyers, academics, community members, policy makers, and others. The goal is to promote cross-disciplinary thought, dialogue and action on developing and implementing a rights-based approach to TB. The conference will consist of panel discussions and workshops on various subjects related to human rights and TB.  Limited funding will be available for conference participants based on need.

2015 Preparedness Summit
United States

2015 Preparedness Summit

April 14-17, 2015 Atlanta, Georgia

Global Health Security: Preparing a Nation for Emerging Threats

In an increasingly interconnected world, public health threats can emerge on the other side of the globe and arrive within a day on the doorstep of health departments, healthcare providers, schools, and more. Global health security preparedness issues such as protecting against infectious disease, the health effects of climate change and extreme weather, and cybersecurity threats to critical infrastructure, impact all levels of governmental public health and healthcare agencies. The Preparedness Summit is the premier national conference in the field of public health and healthcare preparedness and one of the only cross-disciplinary learning opportunities to address issues such as global health security.

The Preparedness Summit is the first and longest running national conference on public health preparedness. Since its beginning in 2006, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) has taken a leadership role in convening a wide array of partners to participate in the Summit;  presenting new research findings, sharing tools and resources, and providing a variety of opportunities for attendees to learn how to implement model practices that enhance the nation’s capabilities to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and other emergencies. This past year, this 4-day annual event, brought over 1,600 attendees to Atlanta, Georgia from nearly every state in the nation as well as several territories and countries, including China and Australia.
