1.Analytical Method Strategies for Drug Development
 Start date03 Jun 2015
[ID=721855] Go to top of page
 LocationCambridge, MA, United States
 Abstract Analytical Development is the series of method development and validation tasks required to bring a drug candidate into animal safety studies, through clinical trials, and ultimately, commercial sales. The required tasks get more stringent as the program moves toward commercial. The challenge is in knowing these requirements for each stage of the candidate drug evolution, for instance, what is necessary to support a Phase-1 IND or a generic ANDA. Regulatory agencies like the FDA and EMEA, compendial sources such as the US and European pharmacopeias, and harmonization efforts like ICH provide guidances at steps along the path. Analytical Development is divided into two key areas, namely Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients and drug products, the former to be the focus for this presentation. Strategies for method development and validation will be discussed, with the information reflecting industry best practices, and based on numerous projects from a CMO perspective.
 Topics analytical method development, IND, ANDA, FDA, EMEA, ICH, Active pharmaceutical ingredients, drug products, drug development, method validation, CMO

4.Gordon Research Conference — Mycotoxins & Phycotoxins 2015
 Dates 14 Jun 2015 → 19 Jun 2015
[ID=655109] Go to top of page
 LocationEaston, United States
 Abstract This conference, which initially focused on toxigenic fungi and mycotoxins, was expanded in 1987 to include algae and phycotoxins. Combining the two fields has been beneficial because, while fungi and algae are very different microorganisms, they and their toxins nonetheless present common scientific challenges. The conference serves as a forum for scientists sharing the goal of reducing health risks and economic losses caused by these toxins in foods, feeds and the environment, for sharing the latest data, for developing novel approaches to ongoing problems, and for identifying new toxin-related research needs. The conference has a history of generous support from the USDA, FDA, NIEHS, NOAA, other government entities and corporations. Myco- and phycotoxin research requires a multidisciplinary approach incorporating chemistry, microbiology, ecology, genetics, agronomy, pharmacology, toxicology, molecular biology, epidemiology and other fields. A major strength of the Mycotoxin and Phycotoxin Conference is the high level of scientific expertise from these fields represented at the meetings. Among the conference topics are: identification and characterization of toxigenic microorganisms and their toxins, biosynthetic pathways, genetic-biomolecular controls of biosynthesis, and environmental triggers for toxin production. Additional topics include development of rapid, sensitive and cost effective analytical methods, novel biomarkers and improved exposure assessments for vulnerable animal and human populations, toxicology and mechanisms of action, risk assessment, and reducing exposures through the development of effective intervention strategies. The introduction of students and young scientists to the mycotoxin and phycotoxin research communities is another important aspect of the conference. By providing a venue for them to discuss their research with experts and to build professional relationships, the conference contributes to the continuity of myco- and phycotoxin research. In summary, through a unique combination of toxins, scientific disciplines, experts and young scientists, the Mycotoxin and Phycotoxin GRC serves as a catalyst for research having the ultimate goal of maintaining a safe food supply and environment.

 Dates 26 Jul 2015 → 31 Jul 2015
[ID=648035] Go to top of page
 LocationBiddeford, United States
 Abstract Elastin, Elastic Fibers and Microfibrils conference is now recognized as the major international meeting for investigators with an interest in the biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, and pathology of elastin. Over the years to follow, the breadth of the field has grown even more due to identification and study of numerous additional molecules that influence the regulation, assembly and function of elastic fibers, such as the fibulins, latent TGF-beta binding proteins, emilins, proteoglycans and lysyl oxidases. The Conference is unique in the depth of its coverage of elastin biology, spanning from detailed, high-resolution structural studies of elastin and fibrillin, to in vitro assembly assays, to functional in vivo research with transgenic and knockout animals, to human disease, and finally to biomaterials and therapies. The unusual biology of elastic fibers has brought together basic scientists with diverse areas of expertise, including physical chemistry, engineering, cell and molecular biology, developmental biology, biochemistry and biotechnology. Furthermore, because of the involvement of elastin and elastic fiber associated proteins in numerous pathological processes, past Gordon Conferences have attracted investigators with a wide spectrum of clinical interests, including emphysema, COPD, pulmonary and vascular hypertension, atherosclerosis, aneurysms, genetic diseases, and cutaneous and eye diseases. Over the years, the content and focus of the Elastin and Elastic Fibers GRC has been constantly evolving, reflecting changing trends and ideas. Attendees of previous conferences enthusiastically agree that this meeting provides the most important forum for communication and collaboration among investigators in this field. As such, this conference has had, and will continue to have, a major role in stimulating interest and influencing the direction of research in this field.

25.Gordon Research Conference — Cell Biology of Metals 2015
 Dates 26 Jul 2015 → 31 Jul 2015
[ID=648358] Go to top of page
 LocationWest Dover, United States
 Abstract The Cell Biology of Metals Gordon Conference was initiated to provide a forum for an emerging field, encompassing the uptake, distribution and use of metals in cells and organelles. Metals are taken up across membranes and are directed to various cellular destinations, ultimately finding their way into the correct metalloproteins. Intricate mechanisms control uptake, distribution, trafficking, and insertion into proteins. Transporters, chelators, metal cofactors, protein folding chaperones, metallochaperones, transcription factors and translation regulators are involved. The level of complexity equals that of the protein trafficking pathways that are being characterized by modern methods of cell biology. An important objective is to understand how protein trafficking pathways and metal trafficking pathways are integrated and intersect. Other areas of focus are mechanisms of metal ion homeostasis, how cells sense diverse metal ions, and how homeostatic mechanisms for different metal ions are interconnected. Cellular malfunction or disease ensue if any of the steps in metal homeostasis are perturbed, and the meeting emphasizes these disease related implications. The sessions are organized according to cell structure, cutting across metals (Fe, Cu, Zn, Mo) and evolutionary categories.

 Dates 02 Aug 2015 → 07 Aug 2015
[ID=655190] Go to top of page
 LocationNewry, United States
 Abstract Proteases co-evolved with their substrates as integral components of specific networks or pathways in development and homeostasis. Elucidating their role in disease, resulting either from loss of function or over-expression, requires a sophisticated understanding within the context of biological networks. Furthermore, successful development of novel therapies relies on an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to investigating such networks and pathways. The 2015 GRC on Matrix Metalloproteinases will develop these themes in the context of major functional networks, and will be inclusive of multiple organ/biological systems and a variety of disease pathways. The conference will feature fundamental and applied research on all aspects of MMPs, ADAM, ADAMTS, and astacin metalloproteinases, as well as their natural and synthetic inhibitors to highlight general principles as well as specific properties. The role of these metalloproteinases in molecular maturation and turnover in diverse biological systems and models is a major focus. In addition, disease-causing protease mutations, proteolytic mechanisms in acquired diseases, protease regulatory mechanisms at all levels, structural biology, developmental biology, genetics, and therapeutics will constitute the broad scope of the meeting.

For the 2015 conference, the organizers have assembled a group of world-leading experts working in areas of investigation that are highly relevant to environmental, industrial, and pharmaceutical toxicology, with the goal of incorporating research on the mechanistic basis of disease into risk decision making. Emerging technologies in mechanistic toxicology and computational, 3D, and in vivo modeling as well as systems biology approaches to assessing risk to human disease will be highlighted. The microbiome, the inflammasome, epigenetics, carcinogenesis, and stem cells in toxicological research are among the topics that will be highlighted at the conference. The conference will attract a mix of junior and senior investigators and trainees with a common interest in advancing their respective fields of investigation. For the second time, a Gordon Research Seminar on Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Toxicity will precede the conference. This provides an expanded opportunity for trainees and young scientists to be exposed to cutting-edge science and to network with their future colleagues in the field. The poster sessions are an essential element to the success of conference. Trainees and scientists at any level will have the opportunity to present their latest, groundbreaking work in poster format under an informal atmosphere that fosters relaxed dialog, networking and idea sharing. A special committee will select some abstracts/posters for short oral talks. These "late-breaking" oral sessions provide increased participation to trainees and young scientists to share their work with an audience of experts. This is a tremendous opportunity for the young talent to receive feedback from well-established leaders in the field. Another key to the success of the Gordon Conference is the social interaction of participants at meal times and during social activities in afternoon breaks. These interactions have led to long-lasting scientific collaborations and the lining up of trainees with laboratories for further education.

[ID=721475] Go to top of page
 LocationŠibenik, Croatia
 Abstract The epidemiology of fungal infections has been changed over the last decade showing evolution of fungal diseases in humans, animals and plants. These changes might be related to use of antimycotics in prophylaxis, alterations in host pathogen interactions and various types of immunosuppression. Thus, research of fungal biodiversity, improvement of identification methods, discovery of the virulence factors and new approaches in antifungal therapy are of great importance in combating fungal diseases. The human activities in crop cultivation as well as current climate changes affect ecological niches of various plant pests including fungal plant pathogens and mycotoxinproducing species. Mycotoxins, secondary metabolites produced by the fungi are known to exert a variety of toxic effects including hepatotoxicity, nephrotoxicity, neurotoxicity, mutagenicity, carcinogenicity or immunosuppression. Average ingestion of single mycotoxin in European countries is rather low but mycotoxins often cocontaminate food and feed, and outcome of mycotoxin mixtures intake are still poorly investigated. Hence, mycotoxin monitoring, development and/or improvement of detection methods, as well as research on mycotoxin interactions in vivo and in vitro, are important for development of new strategies for mycotoxin reduction and prevention of mycotoxicoses. The main objective of this meeting is bringing together the most prominent mycologists and mycotoxicologists from Europe and broader to present and discuss their knowledge and experience in a field, exchangenew ideas, promote scientific contacts and start potential collaborations among participants.The last but not the least, it is to inform and teach students about current topics in mycology and mycotoxicology.

41.Medicinal Chemistry of Boron Compounds Conference
 Dates 04 Oct 2015 → 07 Oct 2015
[ID=697206] Go to top of page
 LocationOropesa, Spain
 Abstract We are proud to add to our conference listing the inaugural Medicinal Chemistry of Boron Compounds Conference which shall be taking place 4th October – 7th October 2015 at the Parador de Oropesa in Spain. The pharmacological uses of boron compounds have been known for several decades. However, recent progress in the bioorganic chemistry of boron is closely related to the discovery of boron-containing compounds as prospective drugs. While first developments of the medicinal chemistry of boron were stipulated by applications in boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) of cancers, more recently it was found that some boron analogues of amino acids and their derivatives express hypolipidemic, anti-inflammatory, antiarthitic, antipleurisy, and analgesic properties. The knowledge accumulated during the past decades on the chemistry and biology of bioorganic boron compounds laid the foundation for the emergence of a new area of study and application of boron compounds as lipophilic pharmacophores and modulators of biologically active molecules; for example, carborane-containing compounds inhibit HIV replication, show anticancer activity, modulate purinergic receptors, etc. An additional advantage of boron clusters is that they are abiotic and therefore chemically stable in biological environment and usually resistant to catabolism. These and other recent findings clearly show that there is still great unexplored potential in medicinal applications of boron-containing compounds. This conference will promote the development of new boron-containing drugs and materials for molecular medical diagnostics by bringing together renowned experts in the field of medicinal chemistry of boron compounds.

 Abstract Native mass spectrometry provides a means to interrogate the structure of large biomolecules and complexes from a non-denaturing solution environment. The method has now matured and found its way into integrated structural biology projects, primarily to establish the unknown architecture of large protein complexes and molecular machineries. “Biomolecular Interactions” was the topic of the 2003 Asilomar Conference, but there has been many advancements since then, including the introduction of new mass analyzers, improvements in sample handling ionization techniques, the rapid adoption of ion mobility spectrometry, and the application of different ion activation methods to elucidate structure of and interactions within protein assemblies. New areas of application have emerged, focusing on the structures of e.g. viruses, membrane proteins, biopharmaceuticals and signaling nodes.

[ID=721183] Go to top of page
 LocationCarlsbad, San Diego, United States
 Abstract Structure-Based Drug Design (SBDD) has evolved a great deal over the past 30 years since the concept of the “Lock and Key” hypothesis was first reduced to practice in the HIV-1 protease field, leading to the rational design of a number of molecules that are at the forefront of effective therapy. Evolution of techniques such as x-ray crystallography, NMR and computational chemistry have enabled a more informed understanding of binding events, encouraging many groups to employ SBDD strategies to a wide range of drug-relevant targets. Zing’s inaugural SBDD event will showcase many of the advances made in structural biology, fragment-based methodologies and computational chemistry, demonstrating how these have been used to enable drug discovery programmes in a range of drug target classes from enzymes, to more complex GPCR’s and PPI’s. The conference will also feature some of the emerging technologies in the field, which will serve as a glimpse into the future of drug discovery as SBDD becomes more diverse and unrestrained. You will enjoy the opportunity to engage with many of the pace-setters in the SBDD field, leaving with fresh ideas and concepts that will help to continue to build success in your drug discovery efforts.
 Topics x-ray crystallography, NMR, computational chemistry, protease field, structural biology, SBDD.
