FAES-BioTech — BioTech 54 Making Cardiomyocytes from iPSCs
ID
785597
Dates
22 Aug 2016 - 26 Aug 2016
Location
Bethesda, Maryland, United States
Abstract
Often late stage clinical trials are terminated due to cardiotoxicity. There is great need to develop proper screens that are predictive of human clinical response to medications. This course will cover numerous applications using cardiomyocytes. The lectures will cover cardiac development and cardiac diseases which provides the necessary background for this course in appreciating how stem cells can be differentiated from iPSCs and be used to develop disease in a dish models as well as screens to monitor specific cardiac phenotypes such as arrhythmia and cardiac toxicity. Lectures will also cover the methodology to drive differentiation of iPSCs toward cardiac lineages and the development of cardiac reporter lines that will be useful for screening applications. The laboratory exercises will include basic handling of cardiomyocytes and then delve into discovery techniques that focus on disease modeling and phenotypic screening for small molecule therapeutics. Lab exercises will conclude with providing exposure to transfection techniques as well as assays for proarrhythmia and toxicity.

BNK — 8th International Leaders in Biobanking Congress
ID
806794
Dates
07 Sep 2016 - 09 Sep 2016
Location
Baltimore, MD, United States
Abstract
Today, biospecimen collections are used by multiple research groups for various research aims, from basic research through clinical trials. Useful biosamples must be collected to maintain their molecular integrity for specific (or unknown) downstream analysis. Thus, the proper collection, processing, storage and tracking of biospecimens are critical components allowing researchers to better link molecular and clinical information. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 8th International Leaders in Biobanking Congress: Applying Biospecimen Science to Advance Biomedical Research addresses biospecimen science, management, and applications, bringing together biomedical and biopharmaceutical researchers, regulators, biorepository managers and practitioners to investigate the best strategies for effective use of biospecimens within today’s cutting-edge biomedical research.

Chromatin, Replication and Chromosomal Stability 2016
ID
771808
Dates
19 Oct 2016 - 21 Oct 2016
Location
Copenhagen, Denmark
Abstract
The epigenetic framework guides events like replication, repair and transcription, which in turn themselves leave an imprint on chromatin and chromosomal structure. Understanding how modulation of chromatin during replication and repair influence cell fate decisions in normal development and disease represents a major challenge. By bringing together leading scientists in chromatin, replication, and epigenetics, this conference aims to inspire discussions and new ideas on the interplay between chromosome organisation, epigenetic inheritance and genome duplication.

Cell Symposia: Functional RNAs
ID
801297
Dates
06 Nov 2016 - 08 Nov 2016
Location
Guangzhou, China
Abstract
What an exciting time for RNA! Not long ago, small RNAs were taking the scientific world by storm, demonstrating that our long-held beliefs about gene expression were incomplete and providing us with new experimental approaches. Today, new breakthroughs continue to redefine the scientific landscape. RNA-guided genome editing allows us to modify genes at their endogenous loci, and sequencing technologies allow us to assess gene expression at remarkable scales, large and small. As a result, we are beginning to understand biology like never before. Please join us for a meeting focused on how functional RNAs impact gene expression. Topics will include emerging technologies, new insights into small RNA formation and function, regulation of gene expression by long noncoding RNAs, genome regulation, genome editing, and more. Our aim is to bring together researchers with broad interests in RNA biology and its impact on gene expression to share their current research efforts, foster collaborations, and stimulate ideas for future avenues of research.

Antibodies Targeting GPCRs, Recent Advances and Therapeutic Challenges
ID
830021
Dates
24 Nov 2016 - 25 Nov 2016
Location
Tours, France
Abstract
The conference will be organized as a satellite workshop of the 5th meeting of GDR 3545 on “G Protein-Coupled Receptors (GPCRs) - From Physiology to Drugs” to be held in Tours, Val de Loire (France). The topic of the workshop will focus on new advances and challenges in the development of antibodies targeting GPCRs and their potential applications in clinic. GPCRs represent the largest family of cell surface receptors regulating many human and animal physiological functions. Their implication in human pathophysiology is obvious with about 15% of GPCRs being targeted by 30-40% of the medical drugs commercialized today. Developing therapeutic antibodies directed against GPCRs appears as a promising alternative to selectively and safely modulate their activity. Several speakers from academia and industry considered as leaders in antibody development against GPCRs have accepted to take part in the event. The recent technological strategies used for immunization as well as for development of various antibodies formats (i.e. IgGs, scFv and nanobodies) will be presented. Moreover, the prospective of application of GPCR-selective antibodies in the most important physiological systems such as the central nervous, the immune, and the endocrine systems will be essentially covered.

Keystone Symposia - Connectomics
ID
825251
Dates
05 Mar 2017 - 08 Mar 2017
Location
Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract
The emerging field of connectomics comprises extensive efforts to map patterns of brain connectivity, to represent these patterns with the tools of network science, and to explore the relation of brain connectivity and dynamics to behavior and cognition. Importantly, these efforts span multiple scales of brain organization, from synaptic connectivity among individual neurons, to comprehensive maps of circuits, neuronal populations, and projections among brain regions. An integrative multi-scale framework for mapping, analyzing and modeling connectome data sets is lacking. This Keystone Symposia meeting aims to narrow this important gap, by: 1) Fostering scientific exchange among otherwise siloed researchers studying connectomes in different organisms at different scales with different measurement techniques; 2) Promoting approaches that apply across scales, for example by leveraging the tools of network science; 3) Emphasizing the need to move beyond descriptive accounts of connectomes, to model-based prediction and control; 4) Providing a unique opportunity for pre- and postdoctoral trainees to engage with connectomics leaders and present their work. Anticipated outcomes include a multi-scale framework for description, prediction and control of connectomes; innovative computational methods for statistical analysis and modeling of connectome data sets; and new collaborations among participating researchers and trainees. The meeting will have transformative impact by creating new relationships among investigators and by seeding a new integrative research agenda centered on the structure and dynamics of brain connectivity.

Keystone Symposia - Engineered Cells and Tissues as Platforms for Discovery and Therapy
ID
825130
Dates
09 Mar 2017 - 12 Mar 2017
Location
Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Abstract
Tissue engineering, cell therapies and regenerative medicine have witnessed accelerated progress over the past decade. Fueled by fundamental discoveries in iPS, progenitor, and developmental cell biology, cells are now used as building blocks to create model systems, as testing platforms for drug interventions and as active therapeutics. High-throughput production of various types of “microtissues” or “organoids” is making increasing contributions to our understanding of human development, disease and repair. This Keystone Symposia meeting will highlight these rapidly emerging cell-based tools for fundamental and applied discovery. Culture systems ranging from simple cell cluster organoids, to highly advanced cell-electronic composites, will be discussed. In addition, the encouraging progress that is being made in cell-based therapies across a range of organs and diseases will be featured. The goal of this meeting is to provide a state-of-the-art review of both pluripotent and differentiated cells as tools for discovery and therapy. A broad range of cell types and therapeutic areas will be included.
