The signature event in Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Biomarker Series, the Tenth Annual Biomarkers & Diagnostics World Congress 2014 is dedicated to all areas of biomarker research spanning the pharmaceutical and diagnostic pipeline. The meeting brings together a unique and international mix of large and medium pharmaceutical, biotech and diagnostics companies, leading universities and clinical research institutions, government and national labs, CROs, emerging companies and tool providers-making the Congress a perfect meeting-place to share experience, foster collaborations across industry and academia, and evaluate emerging technologies. The Congress also offers a balance of scientific sessions covering the latest research and strategic presentations and brainstorming sessions for the decision makers. Now in its tenth year, the Biomarkers & Diagnostics World Congress is the leading annual meeting dedicated to biomarker and diagnostics research and implementation that consistently delivers a cutting-edge agenda, 400+ senior delegates, and a sold-out exhibit hall.

The World Congress will continue offering comprehensive coverage of biomarkers in drug development, including translational biomarkers, patient selection and drug-diagnostic co-development. The Executive Summit on Companion Diagnostics is designed to bring together drug development and diagnostics leaders to brainstorm strategies for Rx-Dx co-development, including reimbursement, regulatory, and technology/implementation strategies. The Clinical Biomarker Assay Development track, will provide complete coverage on biomarker assay development technologies, regulation, and clinical utility. Finally, a new track on Mutation Analysis for Clinical Biomarkers and Diagnostics will cover the recent research and technologies related to genomic analysis to guide clinical decision making. Please join us for comprehensive scientific coverage and unparallel networking opportunities at the Tenth Anniversary Congress.

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Biologics Formulation and Delivery Summit
United States

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Biologics Formulation and Delivery Summit

May 5-7, 2014 Boston, Massachusetts

Advances in molecular biology and biotechnology have allowed for the large-scale production of effective and potent biotherapeutic drugs.  Major research issues in protein/peptide delivery include the stabilization of proteins in delivery devices and the design of appropriate target-specific carriers. CHI’s Inaugural Biologics Formulation and Delivery Summit will provide a forum for focused discussions on current challenges and opportunities in delivery of biotherapeutics. This multi-track summit will discuss various formulation and device-based approaches for designing physiologically relevant, patient friendly, targeted biologics products.

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

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.

3rd World Congress on Controversies in the Management of Viral Hepatitis

3rd World Congress on Controversies in the Management of Viral Hepatitis

May1-3, 2014 Berlin, Germany

The large attendance and enthusiastic feedback from the 1st Congress and in particular the 2nd Congress held in Berlin this October, illustrated the need for this unique meeting completely focusing on the needs of the busy clinician caring for HCV and HBV infected patients.

The C-Hep Congress attempts to summarize all the key new data recently presented – and how it might be implemented in routine care of Hepatitis B and C patients. Overviews, state of the art lectures and controversial debates with the outstanding faculty of the top world leaders presenting both pro and con positions challenge and explore the optimal treatment for patients, with emphasis on the appropriate use of new and emerging drugs.

This educational Congress focuses on clinical practices in Viral Hepatitis and benefits not only Hepatologists and Infectious Diseases specialist, but also general practitioners, internists and primary care physicians with a desire to gain knowledge on these exciting advances.

The format includes a significant allocation of time for interactive debates and questions from the audience to each panel of experts. Participants are encouraged to take an active role in the discussions with faculty members which follow each debate, in a unique and open environment.

Amazonian Conference on Emerging and Infectious Diseases
French Guiana

Amazonian Conference on Emerging and Infectious Diseases

26th to September 28th, 2014 Cayenne, French Guiana

Organized by the STRonGer consortium, the Amazonian Conference on Emerging and Infectious Diseases (ACEID) will be held from September 26th to September 28th, 2014 in Cayenne, French Guiana.

Since the late 19th century, tremendous efforts have been made to fight against infectious agents responsible for human diseases. The development of hygiene, including the quality of drinking water, better food, the advent and generalization of vaccination, the widespread use of pesticides as well as antibiotics are only a few steps that led to a drastic reduction of public health burden due to infectious diseases.

However, parasites, bacteria and viruses remain a major cause of human mortality worldwide. New diseases have emerged, others have re-emerged in areas where they had been eradicated or at least controlled, and a few others have seen their geographical distribution dramatically expanded.

In parallel with the emergence of new infectious agents, we have to face an increased resistance of bacteria, parasites and viruses respectively to antibiotics, antiparasitic and antiviral molecules. Lastly, numerous arthropod vectors have developed a resistance to insecticide molecules commonly used for vector control.

Some of these infectious agents and their associated diseases have a huge impact worldwide on public health and socio-economic development. Their control has become a major political and strategic international issue. This has led to increased institutional support of research.

In this context, there is an important need for sharing and disseminating the latest developments in emerging and infectious diseases field within the scientific community. The Amazonian Conference on Emerging and Infectious Diseasesthus aims to get together a broad range of scientists “linking fieldwork, benchside and bedside approaches”.

Attending this conference will be the opportunity to stimulate and strengthen collaborations across fields, and to network with a worldwide interdisciplinary group including researchers and academics, as well as health professionals.
