15th Biennial Meeting of the International Society for Applied Cardiovascular Biology
07 Sep 2016 - 10 Sep 2016
Banff, Canada
The 15th Biennial Meeting of the International Society for Applied Cardiovascular Biology (ISACB) will convene in Banff, Alberta, Canada, September 7-10, 2016 at the Banff Centre which is nestled on the side of Tunnel Mountain in Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. The conference is organized by the International Society for Applied Cardiovascular Biology (ISACB), a professional society founded in 1987. The goal of the conference is to establish a research agenda going forward that will address and resolve barriers to the understanding and translation of discoveries in cardiovascular medicine into therapeutic modalities that improve public health. This conference will provide a forum for cardiovascular researchers working in research laboratories in academia, in industry and in the clinics to convene to disseminate new information in their fields, build relationships with one-another and hopefully renew and establish new collaborations and strategies for translating advancements derived from the understanding of the biology of cardiovascular disease to the care and management of patients. The focus of the conference will be upon translation of basic research relevant to regenerative therapies including stem cells, tissue interactions and cardiovascular biomaterials and novel cardiovascular diagnostics, imaging and therapeutics. A dedicated plenary session will focus upon issues related to regulatory science and commercialization.
Keystone Symposia - Adaptations to Hypoxia in Physiology and Disease
05 Mar 2017 - 09 Mar 2017
Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Cellular responses to changes in oxygen availability have important implications for both physiology and pathophysiology, in particular in the setting of solid tumor progression. A number of hypoxia-inducible pathways have been characterized, such as the large transcriptome regulated by hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs). However, many other oxygen-sensing pathways exist within the cell. The aim of this meeting is to disseminate up-to-date information on basic mechanisms of cellular and tissue hypoxia responses, and discuss the impact of these responses on physiology and cancer, with an emphasis on HIF-independent, but nevertheless fundamental, oxygen-sensing pathways. Outcomes of this meeting will include the dissemination of new scientific knowledge, the discussion of new methodologies, the education of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in this discipline, and promotion of new collaborations between clinicians, basic researchers and industrial partners. This will be the eighth Keystone Symposia meeting on Hypoxia, which brings together academic, clinical and industrial researchers to enhance synergy between these groups and develop translational strategies for targeting hypoxic stress responses for therapeutic benefit.
