Nucleic Acid Chemistry - Beilstein Organic Chemistry Symposium 2016
ID
817327
Dates
05 Oct 2016 - 07 Oct 2016
Location
Prien (Chiemsee), Germany
Abstract
Nucleic acid chemistry represents an important subdiscipline of organic chemistry, since natural and artificial functionalities as well as probes, markers or other biologically active molecules can be introduced synthetically into DNA and RNA, by preparing either the corresponding artificial DNA building blocks or by so-called postsynthetic methodologies. Although nucleic acid chemistry seems to be already a mature research field, actual questions that are raised by research in biology and chemical biology give enough reasons to synthesize new nucleic acid probes and thereby further develop the chemistry. Moreover, beside its biological functionality, DNA and RNA are considered as an increasingly important architecture and scaffold for two- and three-dimensional objects, networks and materials for nanosciences.

The Symposium will take place in the Yachthotel Chiemsee in Prien, Germany. The meeting will be held from October 5th to 7th, 2016, with the 4th and the 8th for traveling. The setting and the limited number of participants (max. 50 persons) provide a very convivial atmosphere for the ready exchange of thoughts and ideas.

Equivalence of Complex Drug Products: Scientific and Regulatory Challenges
ID
834744
Start date
09 Nov 2016
Location
New York, United States
Abstract
The rise of bio- and nano-technologies has accelerated the development of complex drug products, a class of products that include—but are not limited to—Non Biological Complex Drugs (NBCDs). NBCDs (e.g., glatiramoids, iron-carbohydrate complexes, polymeric micelles, complex ocular emulsions, and liposomes) consist of different (closely related and often nanoparticulate) structures that cannot be fully quantitated and characterized by physico-chemical analytical means. The complex nature of NBCDs means that minute variations in the manufacturing process can substantially change the composition of final products, and this poses a challenge for the development of regulatory guidelines. While guidance for developing generic versions of small molecule drugs is well-established, and progress has been made for biologic complex drugs, there is very little guidance for follow-on versions of NBCDs. This is further complicated by the difficulty of aligning strategies of international regulatory bodies due to their different legal frameworks. To advance research and build consensus, it is necessary to engage together key stakeholders from academia, regulatory bodies, industry, and drug manufacturing.

HTMD — 3RD WORKSHOP ON HIGH THROUGHPUT MOLECULAR DYNAMICS (2016)
ID
839626
Dates
10 Nov 2016 - 11 Nov 2016
Location
Barcelona, Spain
Abstract
The aim of this workshop is to learn the latest developments of high-throughput molecular dynamics simulations with practical lectures and real data and to give scientists the opportunity to exchange their experiences. Hands-on session and training will be given using HTMD a powerful programmable environment to prepare, handle, simulate and analyze molecular simulations, and efficient GPU-based MD simulations, and standard protocols to execute numerical experiments. At the end of the workshop there will be a session on applying what you have learned on your data/proteins.

Thanks to sponsoring from Nvidia two GPUs will be awarded to the best contributed talk and poster. Amazon EC2 will also be used during the workshop.

The high arithmetic performance of recent GPUs offers an important technological advance for molecular dynamics simulations but real benefits are only apparent if thousands of simulations are used, i.e. high-throughput. Environments like HTMD are designed to get the scientist to focus on the science and applications, rather than the technicalities.

This workshop is a great opportunity for industrial partners to get an overview of the state-of-the-art in molecular simulations for medicinal chemistry and drug design.

Plugging the Antibiotic Gap: A Medicinal Chemists Perspective
ID
825621
Start date
16 Nov 2016
Location
London, United Kingdom
Abstract
Sustained under-investment in antimicrobials has led to a severe shortage of new drugs for treating infection. At a time when emerging antimicrobial resistance is decreasing the efficacy of existing treatments, it is more important than ever that we refresh the drug pipeline with new antimicrobials that act on new targets with novel modes of action.

Faced with this growing healthcare issue, renewed interest from both industry and academia has led to a resurgence in antimicrobial drug discovery. This meeting aims to look at the current state of the art from a medicinal chemist’s perspective and will focus on the particular challenges associated with discovering and developing new antimicrobials. Speakers from industry and academia will describe their own strategies for addressing these challenges whilst showcasing the opportunity for creativity and innovation.

Late Stage Functionalization for Synthesis and Medicines
ID
826603
Start date
05 Dec 2016
Location
Oxford, United Kingdom
Abstract
Late Stage Functionalization (LSF) holds the potential to revolutionise the logic of chemical synthesis and open new ways to prepare novel natural products and medicines. The introduction of important chemical groups for medicinal chemistry in the very last steps of the synthesis through LSF could also dramatically speed up the preparation of NCEs and have a major impact on drug discovery. The availability of new powerful catalytic chemistries showing a high degree of functional group tolerance and that can be performed under mild conditions offer tremendous opportunities for chemists to access new molecules that cannot be made easily by conventional approaches.

Protein - Protein Interactions 2016
ID
825640
Dates
05 Dec 2016 - 06 Dec 2016
Location
London, United Kingdom
Abstract
Virtually all vital cellular processes are controlled by protein-protein interactions (PPIs) including gene expression, proliferation, intracellular communication and apoptosis. Thus, understanding and manipulating PPIs represents a key objective in being able to understand healthy and disease biology. Achieving this goal will lead to probes of cell signalling pathways or, systems biology and next generation molecular therapeutics. However, to date, only a few PPIs have been the subject of a drug discovery initiative by the pharmaceutical industry.

Keystone Symposia: Protein-RNA Interactions – Scale, Mechanisms, Structure and Function of Coding and Noncoding RNPs
ID
833426
Dates
05 Feb 2017 - 09 Feb 2017
Location
Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract
Ribonucleic acid (RNA) binding proteins (RBPs) are rapidly being recognized as a major class of more than a thousand proteins that is widely conserved throughout eukaryotes and plays key roles in almost every aspect of RNA metabolism. RBPs interact with hundreds to thousands of coding and noncoding RNA substrates via cis-regulatory sequences or guided by associated small RNAs to form ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes. Increasingly, defects in the protein-RNA interactions by mutations within the regulatory proteins, RNA cis-elements or changes in protein availability or expression have led to numerous diseases. This meeting addresses critical gaps in our basic understanding of how, where and why these RNP complexes form using approaches that integrate high-throughput, massively parallel microarray, sequencing and proteomic technologies with structural biology, genomics, systems-level thinking and computational algorithms to probe RNPs at steps in the life cycle of processing both coding and noncoding RNAs. The specific aims are to: (1) Provide an opportunity and forum to gather interdisciplinary leaders in various fields to cross-fertilize a common, shared vision; (2) Introduce newcomers to the most cutting-edge methods that integrate mechanistic studies and high-throughput science; and (3) Consolidate the field moving forwards. As this unified field is relatively new, we will see shifts in current research paradigms and many opportunities should arise from interactions at this meeting.

Keystone Symposia: Autophagy Network Integration in Health and Disease
ID
833303
Dates
12 Feb 2017 - 16 Feb 2017
Location
Copper Mountain, Colorado, United States
Abstract
Autophagy is a quality control mechanism that plays an important role in health and disease, including neurodegeneration, cancer, infection and inflammation. The core autophagy machinery has been identified and studied in detail. In addition, integration and cross-talk with other cellular pathways is becoming clearer, providing a rationale for why autophagy is linked to so many diverse physiological functions. Future challenges are focused on integrative structural, molecular and system approaches that are able to provide a much more refined understanding of autophagy regulatory networks. This meeting will highlight basic molecular and network insights in the autophagy system that are critical in life processes and multiple disease areas, and will examine the prospects for therapeutic targeting of the autophagy system. The meeting will bring together a variety of investigators exploring different facets of autophagy, and their interactions will expand our knowledge of fundamental autophagic mechanisms in different physiological and pathological settings.

Phase Separation and RNA Processing as Drivers of Cancer and Neurodegenerative Disease
ID
806999
Dates
24 Feb 2017 - 27 Feb 2017
Location
Carlsbad, San Diego, United States
Abstract
A significant challenge in clinical medicine, particularly in cancer and neurodegenerative disease, is the absence of pharmaceuticals that directly target the pathology. In cancer, well over 90% of mutations found in patient tumors are deemed ‘non-actionable’. Many proteins with ‘non-actionable’ mutations are investigated by scientists who study RNA biology, in particular abnormalities in post-transcriptional RNA processing. Biophysicists and engineers have made great strides in understanding biological phase transitions and the role of intrinsically disordered protein (IDP) domains, which have been implicated in both diseases and often described as ‘non-actionable’. This conference seeks to bring together disease-focused medical scientists, RNA biologists, and biophysicists in a truly multidisciplinary environment.

Keystone Symposia: Lipidomics and Bioactive Lipids in Metabolism and Disease
ID
833386
Dates
26 Feb 2017 - 02 Mar 2017
Location
Tahoe City, California, United States
Abstract
The ability to analyze large numbers of lipids from different categories (e.g., fatty acyls, glycerolipids, sphingolipids and sterols) has greatly advanced our understanding of their biochemical functions and roles in disease, but has also created challenges of scale. This Keystone Symposia meeting will cover areas of lipid research that have been particularly impacted by these technologies. It will specifically address the challenge of managing the large data sets generated by lipidomic technologies and conceptually studying them given how interconnected and cross-regulated lipid metabolic pathways are. Bringing together an outstanding group of scientists with expertise in the lipid categories as well as in lipidomic approaches, it will summarize recent findings for the major lipid categories from state-of-the-art technologies and lay the foundation for a broader understanding of new methods and the technical capabilities and limitations of these methods, as well as where better approaches are needed.
