World Congress on Controversies in Breast Cancer
Australia

World Congress on Controversies in Breast Cancer

October 22-25, 2015 Melbourne, Australia

Congresses are numerous, but few address the key issues facing clinicians in their daily practice. New information is often presented, but rarely in a form that is ready for use and the gap between theory and practice is not always addressed. The CoBRA congress will be different. It will deal with controversial issues in aspects of breast cancer care, with presentations, debates and discussions. The congress will provide a forum for key opinion leaders to effectively debate unresolved clinical and therapeutic dilemmas.

4th International Conference on Computational & Mathematical Biomedical Engineering

29 June - 1 July 2015

Ecole Normale Superieure de Cahan (ENS Cachan) 61 Avenue du President Wilson 94230 Cachan, France

Computational and Mathematical Biomedical Engineering is a rapidly expanding research area with the promise of considerable implications on human health and wellbeing. Computational and mathematical modelling now plays a significant role in improving our knowledge of the biological processes in the human body and the pathophysiology of diseases. In addition, it supports the development of appropriate diagnostic tools, new instrumentation and medical devices to enable better clinical outcomes.

The International Conference on Computational & Mathematical Biomedical Engineering aims at bringing together fellow researchers and academics, specialists of several disciplines, practitioners and graduate students with a common interest, to discuss the current state of the art of Computational Biomedical Engineering research.

Association of Oncology Social Work 31st Annual Conference

“Leading With Skill and Passion: Oncology Social Workers at the Forefront of Cancer Care”

May 20-22, 2015 Seattle, Washington

The AOSW Annual Conference is a unique opportunity for oncology social workers, their colleagues and companies that support patients and healthcare providers to gather information, share knowledge, support and guide each other.

Each year, AOSW Annual Conference Committee members organize the annual conference around presentations and educational sessions that reflect the most current issues facing adult oncology social workers, while also embracing and incorporating lessons previously shared. In this way AOSW honors its past as it prepares to meet future challenges and opportunities that are not only welcomed but actively sought.

The AOSW 31st Annual Conference in 2015 will be held in Seattle, Washington, USA. Known for its spirit of optimism, Seattle is an ideal backdrop for the AOSW conference. Like AOSW, Seattle places a priority on continuing to expand and grow its diverse communities.

2015 Society of Gynecologic Oncology Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer

March 28-31, 2015 Chicago, Illinois

Since 1969, women’s health care professionals have convened at the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO)’s Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer to discuss the latest science in the field, receive educational programming, and to network. Now in its 46th year, the SGO Annual Meeting continues to be the premier educational and scientific event for those who treat and care for women with gynecologic cancer.

Members of the entire gynecologic cancer care team who provide treatment and care in the areas of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, and palliative care attend the SGO Annual Meeting. Gynecologic oncologists make up a large population of the attendees, along with medical oncologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists, hematologists, surgical oncologists, obstetrician/gynecologists, nurses, physician assistants, fellows in training, residents, and social workers.

The SGO Annual Meeting also brings together exhibitors from a variety of medical device and service companies. An array of state-of-the-art products and services geared towards members of the gynecologic cancer care team are on display in the exhibition area.

MicroRNAs and Noncoding RNAs in Cancer

MicroRNAs and Noncoding RNAs in Cancer

June 7—12, 2015 Keystone, Colorado

MicroRNAs and other noncoding RNAs have recently emerged as key regulators of gene expression during development and are frequently mis-expressed in human disease states, in particular cancer. MicroRNAs act to promote or repress cell proliferation, migration and apoptosis during development, all processes that go awry in cancer. Thus, microRNAs have the ability to behave like oncogenes or tumor suppressors. Their small size and molecular properties make microRNAs amenable as targets and therapeutics in cancer treatment. MicroRNAs thus present a paradigm shift in thinking about gene regulation during development and disease and provide the oncologist with a potentially powerful new battery of agents to diagnose and treat cancer. However, while hundreds of human microRNAs and noncoding RNAs are known, relatively little is known about their roles and targets, and there is still a limited literature on using these molecules in the clinic. The specific aims of this meeting serve to address these deficiencies and are as follows: 1) Focus on the exciting biology of microRNAs and noncoding RNAs in controlling developmental and cancer processes like cell proliferation, differentiation, cell cycle, apoptosis and metastasis. This meeting will highlight the best current research into the role that miRNAs play in these fundamental processes and provide the basic understanding that will drive the invention of powerful clinical tools; 2) Focus on the latest efforts to harness the power of these RNAs as agents in the fight against cancer. Discussions will range from use of miRNAs as diagnostic and prognostic markers in cancer, to SNPs providing risk factors for cancer, to the delivery and effectiveness of small RNA therapeutics in clinically relevant settings; 3) Attract the best researchers working in small RNAs and cancer to one place for critical discussions that will advance the field and accelerate the benchside to bedside use of this technology; and 4) Provide a stimulating environment where students, postdocs and junior investigators can present and discuss their research with the best minds in the field.
