7th International Deaf Academics and Researchers Conference
Belgium
02/05/2015

7th International Deaf Academics and Researchers Conference

5, 6 and 7 February 2015 Leuven, Belgium

The idea of the Deaf Academics conferences arose from the Amsterdam Manifesto created by some 35 individuals outside of the TISLR conference on July 26, 2000.

The aim of the Deaf Academics conferences is for Deaf academics and researchers:

to present and share our research findings;

gain a better understanding of the issues that we face in the academic environment;

feel empowered to carry on with our work;

maintain a (support) network.

The Deaf Academics conferences are held in International Sign only to provide direct access to academic discourse instead of through sign language interpreters. 

In 2015, the conference theme will be “Deaf Ethnographies and Politics”.

In Leuven we will  organize:

lectures linked to the conference theme;

workshops focusing on specific issues linked to Deaf academics’ practices, experiences and research methods;

seminars on publishing and applying for grants.

7th Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease

November 20-22, 2014 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The development of the next generation of Alzheimer’s disease treatments is among the most important health needs worldwide, but presents huge challenges. The goal of the meeting is to bring together today’s worldwide leaders in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease to discuss new results, candidate therapeutics, and methodological issues important to the development of the next generation of Alzheimer’s disease treatments.

Clinical trial teams from worldwide centers will report on their efforts to identify new biomarkers of disease as well as more sensitive clinical assessment tools to identify those at risk for AD, predict progression, and assess the effectiveness of new treatments.

The future of clinical trials may lie in the development of combination therapies of two or more drugs. CTAD 2014 will highlight the latest on trying to get these trials off the ground.

Overall, the aim of the conference is to overcome the hurdles and speed the development of effective treatments.

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fourteenth Annual Structure-Based Drug Design: Using Structure and Rational Design to Accelerate Discovery

May 21-22, 2014 Boston, Massachusetts

Experimental methods such as X-ray crystallography, NMR, and computational chemistry techniques have led to a better understanding and larger knowledge base of 3-dimensional structures and binding events, encouraging rapid development of structure-based drug design. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fourteenth Annual Structure-Based Drug Design event will showcase informative, high-quality case studies, innovative techniques, and strategies to move from computation to experiment, and finally, to drug. Top scientists from pharma and biotech will address how they are hitting epigenetic targets, provide updates on the newest wave of GPCRs and other membrane proteins, and discuss the latest in fragment-based drug design. Attendees will return to their organizations with fresh perspectives and new ideas to maximize productivity and increase successes in drug discovery.

Global Forum on Nicotine
Poland
06/27/2014

Global Forum on Nicotine

June 27-28, 2014 Warsaw, Poland,

We are pleased to invite you to this international conference on nicotine.

Shaping the discussions will be presentations from the world’s leading nicotine researchers and policy analysts.

The science and understanding of nicotine is rapidly changing. The arrival of new nicotine delivery systems, along with other lower risk alternatives to smoking, is forcing rapid changes in nicotine science, public understanding, and the regulatory landscape.

This impacts upon on a wide range of stakeholders including: consumers – who now have a wider range of sources of nicotine; researchers – a new research agenda and new methods for studying the use of nicotine containing products; public health and tobacco control advisors – the role of these products within the landscape of smoking reduction; parliamentarians and policy makers - faced with developing regulatory frameworks; manufacturers and distributors – developing new products or whose business model is challenged by disruptive products; and national and international tobacco control organisations.

The pace of changes and developments in technology and products available has produced a number of different and often contradictory responses from the various actors.

GFN Aims

The Global Forum on Nicotine will:

examine the current state of the debate about the use of nicotine across the globe;

critically examine of the science relating to the safety and use of nicotine;

allow politicians, scientists, manufacturers, distributors and consumers to exchange views;

facilitate the development of links to enable on-going dialogue between different sectors

20th International Bone Densitometry Workshop

Advanced Musculoskeletal Biomedical Imaging Workshop: From Technology to Application

Molecular, Cellular, Structural, Functional Imaging

October 13-17, 2014 Hong Kong

The International Bone Densitometry Workshop (IBDW) educational mission is to update the metabolic bone field in the cutting-edge advances in the radiological assessments of skeletal micro architecture and bone quality. The topics of discussion and presentation by true experts in this field include, for example, presenting the advancements in micro-MRI, high resolution central and peripheral QCT, finite element analysis, measurements of cortical porosity, and other newer imaging modalities in bone. Moreover, the technology and application in molecular, cellular, structural, functional imaging and quantitative imaging of soft tissues (joints and muscles) are also included in this meeting. The program of the IBDW is tailored to be both scientific as well as clinical with ample time provided for open discussion between all faculty and attendees; and, presentations of original research by young investigators.

The 20th IBDW will be held in Hong Kong and this is the second time to be taken place in Asia. We hope that we can bring the West to East. It would be an excellent platform to let engineers, clinicians and scientists join together for educational and intellectual exchanges in the field of musculoskeletal imaging, from R&D of advanced medical imaging technologies to applications.
