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.
The original identification and linkage of kinases to the development of malignant disease opened an entire new field in oncology. The importance and growing interest in kinases and protein phosphorylation mediated signaling networks in cancer continues unabated, as the successful therapeutic targeting of several kinases (e.g. EGFR, BCR-Abl, EML4-ALK) in the clinic has expanded both the discipline and the pharmaceutical industry.
Proper cell function requires proper protein folding. Misfolding of specific proteins, caused either by mutation or environmental stress, underlies many human diseases, including cancer, diabetes, Parkinson's, Huntington's, and Alzheimer's disease.
This SRC will present the very latest developments in this field, with talks by leading international experts working with both prokaryotic and eukaryotic models. This unique blend from the two communities is always much appreciated by attendees of this meeting and one of its main highlights.
This SRC focuses on new developments in the biology of lipid signaling with an emphasis on cancer, neuronal and cardiovascular diseases. The emphasis will be on molecular, cellular, structure/function and enzymatic mechanisms of physiological signaling pathways and how defects in these pathways contribute to the biology and pathophysiology of cancer, neurodegeneration and cardiovascular disease.
Journalists registering for the American Chemical Society's 251st National Meeting & Exposition this spring will have a wealth of new scientific information available for their news stories. More than 12,500 presentations are planned on a wide range of topics from health to the environment. The meeting, one of the largest scientific conferences of the year, will be held March 13-17 in San Diego.
The ChiMag 2016 Symposium is to be held from Feb. 21-24 in Hiroshima, Japan. The purpose of the symposium is to offer a good opportunity for researchers worldwide pursuing the nature of chiral magnets to discuss and exchange ideas. Online registration form is now available.
The CTO Summit 2016 is a two-day course featuring the latest research and state-of-the-art technologies for chronic total occlusions. This year's conference will emphasize advanced techniques, evidence-based medicine, and live case transmissions featuring the world's leading experts in CTO stenting. Sessions showcasing the latest research on CTOs will focus on procedural outcomes, registry updates, and new stent technologies.
On March 13, 2016, in Maceió, Alagoas, Brazil, the Entomological Society of America (ESA) and the Sociedade Entomológica do Brasil (SEB) will host a gathering of the world's entomological societies to discuss collaborative control options to combat one of the world's most deadly animal species -- Aedes aegypti, a mosquito that transmits Zika virus, dengue, chikungunya, and yellow fever.
