Louisiana Tech University will host a presentation by Dr. Wilma K Olson, the Mary I. Bunting Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Rutgers University, on Feb. 15 for the next installment of its 2015-2016 New Frontiers in Biomedical Engineering seminar series.
This time Connect-Universum invites researchers and practitioners who are interested in the phenomenon of digital nomadism as an object of philosophical evaluation and transdisciplinary research, as well as a way of living. Digital nomads are people who work, study, create, and rest remotely from a certain place, using Internet technologies and mobile connection. Originally, such people used to be residents of 'wireless' metropolises. Today satellite technologies allow them to live in any part of the world.
An increase in smoking and physical inactivity in young adults in India has led to an alarming rise in heart attacks, doctors warned today at the 67th Annual Conference of the Cardiological Society of India.
Researchers from the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory will take part in a discussion of the global hunt for dark matter at this year's AAAS Annual Meeting, to be held Feb. 11-15 in Washington, D.C.
The pre-arranged scientific program for ESC Congress 2016 is now online. The world's largest and most influential cardiovascular event will convene in Rome, Italy, for the first time.
The International Liver Congress is the flagship, multi-disciplinary scientific event of the European Association for the Study of the Liver, which is attended by in excess of 10,000 delegates from around the world every year. Our aim is to showcase the latest advances in hepatology and unveil a wide variety of new, innovative data to improve the management of liver disease.
Five prominent scientists, including two Nobel Laureates, will share the stage on March 25, 2016, when the University of Michigan's Center for RNA Biomedicine holds its Inaugural Symposium in Ann Arbor.
Celebrating its 23rd year at American University in Washington, DC, Lavender Languages is North America's longest-running academic conference on language use in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer life.
Members of the media can now register to cover the latest advances in hormone health and science at ENDO 2016, the Endocrine Society's 98th Annual Meeting & Expo, in Boston April 1-4.
ecancer's symposium on prostate cancer will focus on recent progress in this pathology, with a unique perspective on the prevention and epidemiology of prostate cancer in Latin America.
Understanding the intricately interconnected systems that regulate chromosome structure, replication and segregation are a major challenge in modern cell biology. Yeast systems continue to provide key biological insights and technical breakthroughs that drive progress in the fields of DNA replication, recombination and repair, chromatin structure, spindle assembly and regulation, kinetochore structure and function, telomere biology and nuclear organization.
This SRC will focus on virus assembly, virus structure, and structure-based mechanisms of virus replication (entry, replication, virus-host interactions). Studies in these areas provide insight into a multitude of cellular processes from the perspective of relatively simple and relatively easy to manipulate organisms, viruses and bacteriophages.
This SRC brings together leading international investigators in the field, junior scientists, and those who have recently entered the field of protein ubiquitination. Structural, molecular, and cellular biology continue to reveal both novel and common themes in protein ubiquitination.
The interactions between the nervous and immune systems have been studied for some time, largely to decipher the molecular chemical mechanisms of damage inflicted on the nervous system.
Metalloproteins represent ~30 percent of the proteins encoded in the human genome that provide essential, non-redundant functions. Deficiency in one of these proteins is commonly associated with a clinically-manifested pathology. Metals such as Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn and Se are essential to the virulence of human (and plant) microbial pathogens.
This SRC presents emerging areas of scientific interest in lung epithelial biology in development, homeostasis, and disease. It again addresses critical issues on lung epithelial biology such as stem cells and regenerative medicine, while expanding sessions to encompass themes such as single cell analytical approaches, cell-cell communication within the epithelial compartments as well as between epithelia and stroma, and immune interactions--current subjects of high interest to the lung community with many great advances pending.
This SRC brings together calpain researchers dedicated to elucidating the molecular, cellular and physiological functions of these proteases. Dysregulated calpain activity plays important roles in many diseases, including diabetes, muscular dystrophy, cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, neurodegeneration and cancer.
The FASEB Smooth Muscle Conference is widely regarded as the premier forum in smooth muscle biology, and thus, attracts internationally recognized leaders in a number of fields. The 2016 conference will be the 12th in a highly successful series of smooth muscle meetings sponsored by FASEB that have been held every 3 years since 1982.
The overall scientific objective of this conference is to provide a forum for cutting-edge work in muscle satellite and stem cells, including regulatory mechanisms controlling normal and abnormal functions of muscle stem cells in regeneration, homeostasis, hypertrophy, aging and disease.
This SRC showcases the most recent advances in our understanding of neuronal circuits responsible for retinal image processing. A broad range of concepts and approaches will be covered in thematic sessions led by internationally recognized researchers in the field.
The SRC will focus on unpublished work that is state-of-the-art in study of cardiovascular and renal disease and hypertension.
Protein phosphatases are involved in virtually every area of cellular biology. As researchers in a broad spectrum of disciplines decipher the complexities of signaling networks, protein phosphatases continue to be revealed as important and often essential components of many biological processes.
