17th Annual National Conference of Indian Association of Endocrine Surgeons - Discover the Difference
ID
803545
Dates
17 Sep 2016 - 18 Sep 2016
Location
Meerut, India
Abstract
Endocrine surgical disorders, specially related to thyroid, are frequently recognized. Looking at the different nature of the tumors arising from thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals, endocrine pancreas, and neuro-endocrine tissues, as well as an altogether different management approach and follow ups of such tumors, a different surgical speciality - Endocrine Surgery, is being developed. This speciality deals dedicatedly with tumors of endocrine origin, which is a great help for the endocrine physicians also. Endocrine surgery, is rapidly being recognized, nation-wide and gaining popularity, still, it is a relatively new concept, and the unawareness leads to mis-diagnosis and mis-management of majority of patients. Looking at this aspect, in 1993, The Indian Association of Endocrine Surgeons (IAES) was formed as a section of Association of Surgeons of India, which takes pride in the dissemination of Principles and Practice of Endocrine Surgery, via CME programmes, Fellowship (FAES) programmes, video lectures and workshops, to update the practicing endocrine surgeons as well as to enhance the interest of endocrine Surgery amongst the surgeons. This year this event is being hosted in the north zone, and we expect a great scientific feast, with the world's best endocrine surgeons. Please mark your calendar, we'll be happy to have you with us.

BTMC — Novel Concepts in the Biology and Treatment of Metastatic Cancer Conference
ID
796287
Dates
05 Nov 2016 - 08 Nov 2016
Location
Paphos, Cyprus
Abstract
Metastatic disease, the lethal component of cancer, remains largely intractable to modern medicine. New insights into the biology of metastasis promise fresh insights into how to design therapies that effectively tackle this life-threatening disease process. Recent years have seen the development of novel tools for studying metastasis that continue to provide dramatic advances in our understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms that drive metastasis formation. Metastasis is regulated by both tumor cell-intrinisic factors such as genetic defects, epigenetic perturbation and metabolic changes, as well as by a variety of factors in the microenvironment, including cells of the immune system. These tumor cell-intrinsic factors combine with the external microenvironment to regulate tumor dormancy and the development of therapy resistance. This knowledge is starting to be translated into therapies that target not only the metastatic seed but also the microenvironmental soil.

Abstract
As one of the most investigated areas in biomedical research, the cancer field is rapidly advancing by translating biological insights towards better detection and therapeutics, including molecular classifications as well as immunotherapies. In the era of the genetically informed, emerging concepts in cancer biology and oncology research are colliding into precision medicine. In order to accelerate the development of personalized cancer therapies and further translate fundamental discoveries into the clinic, there must be open lines of communication at the interface between the lab and the clinic. Our goal in organizing this Cell Symposium, Hallmarks of Cancer, is to convene global leaders in the cancer research arena to enhance our understanding of the key aspects of cancer and how to promote translation of this knowledge into the development of targeted therapeutics. We aim to provide a high-impact, high-profile forum for exchanging ideas and establishing a dialogue amongst clinicians, scientists and drug development companies. Symposium themes: Tumor metabolism, Tumor heterogeneity, Tumor immunology and immunotherapy, Personalized cancer therapy, Metastasis and the tumor microenvironment.

2nd Exploring DNA Repair Pathways as Targets for Cancer Therapy Conference
ID
813976
Dates
27 Feb 2017 - 02 Mar 2017
Location
Cancun, Mexico
Abstract
Defect in DNA damage repair and checkpoint control is the underlying mechanism for tumorigenesis, since it allows the accumulation of multiple genetic alternations, which are essential for the initiation of tumorigenesis. This has been clearly illustrated to be the cause of several human cancer-prone syndromes and also revealed by recent human genome studies. On the other hand, defective DNA repair and checkpoint activation also make cancer cells more vulnerable for particular DNA damaging agents or inhibitors that specifically disrupt some of these checkpoint pathways. With the increasing understanding of defects in DNA repair and checkpoint control in tumorigenesis, there are extensive interests in exploring these deficiencies, especially taking advantage of the synthetic lethality concept and targeting particular DNA repair and checkpoint pathways for cancer therapy. The purpose of this conference is to bring together basic, translational and clinical investigators and discuss the current and future directions, opportunities and obstacles in the development of these anti-cancer modalities and how to best apply these concepts in clinical practice.

APCCC 2017 — Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC) 2017
ID
801163
Dates
09 Mar 2017 - 11 Mar 2017
Location
St. Gallen, Switzerland
Abstract
In advanced prostate cancer, rapid and successful drug development has resulted in multiple treatment options, requiring careful decision making for individual patients. Clinicians face the increasingly difficult task of choosing from multiple potentially effective treatments that are also costly and potentially toxic. The inaugural Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC) did provide a forum for discussion and debates on current treatment options for men with advanced prostate cancer. The conference concluded with voting by the panel on pre-defined consensus questions, targeting areas of primary clinical relevance. Following the conference a manuscript with containing the expert recommendations was published at Annals of Oncology.

2nd DNA Replication as a Source of DNA Damage Conference
ID
814148
Dates
03 Jul 2017 - 06 Jul 2017
Location
Rome, Italy
Abstract
The maintenance of genome integrity is critical for the suppression of cancer and premature ageing. Only recently has it become appreciated that DNA replication stress is a crucial driver of genomic instability. The timely progression of replisomes can be disrupted by lesions and secondary structures in the template, by bound proteins and by conflicts with the transcription machinery. A prolonged pause of the replisome then exposes single stranded DNA, which, due to its recombinogenic nature, can lead to genome rearrangements, fragile site expression and cell death. Importantly, some cancers present excessive endogenous levels of replication stress, which can be exploited for their clearance. In this conference, we aim to bring together scientists studying DNA replication and repair, with those interested in how DNA damage can influence cancer and ageing.
