When ESA was founded in 1915, ecology was a new field, still defining its scope as a discipline rooted in the study of the relationships of organisms to each other and their environment. The 100th Annual Meeting will look back at the field's growth over the last hundred years -- and forward to the environmental challenges that will face us now and into the next century. ESA invites press and institutional public information officers to attend for free.
The University of Southampton's world-leading achievements in autonomous systems and artificial intelligence will be celebrated at a special event in London next week to mark the inaugural lecture of Professor Nick Jennings, who has been awarded a Regius Professorship in Computer Science.
Israel has solved its own water problems, using desalinization, comprehensive water management and cutting edge technology. Can its experts help officials and landowners solve their drought issues? This conference features the top Israel water experts and key California water officials -- June 11 at the Sacramento City Hall
The University of Southampton's Web Science Institute is celebrating its first anniversary at a special event in London on Monday, June 8.
Stanford Ph.D. candidate Cassandra Brooks will take part in a conference on Antarctic biodiversity in Monaco from June 8-10.
The Ocean Modeling Forum, a collaboration between the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at University of Washington and NOAA Fisheries, is trying something very rare -- bringing together multiple science models and people who care about a particular ocean resource or fishery to decide what's most important for its vitality and the communities it serves. The group will kick off its second project June 8-10 in Richmond, British Columbia, with a summit focusing on the Pacific herring fishery.
Jin-Soo Kim, director of the Center for Genome Editing at the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) will host a session titled 'CRISPR Genome Editing in Medicine and Biotechnology' at the upcoming World Conference for Science Journalists (WCSJ) to be held in Seoul, South Korea at Coex from June 8-12.
The 2015 Ross Prize in Molecular Medicine will be awarded to Dr. Lewis C. Cantley for his critical discoveries regarding signaling pathways in cancer cells. Dr. Cantley discovered the phosphoinositide 3-kinases (PI3K), which are critical for cell growth, proliferation, and survival. Following this discovery, he demonstrated that activity-enhancing mutations in PI3K were present in several types of human cancer, and he continued to investigate small molecule inhibitors of PI3K that are now approved for use in the treatment of cancer.
