Despite the remarkable unity of the basic components of the living world (DNA, RNA, the genetic code), we are probably still not aware of the diversity of genome structures nor of the diversity of means genomes use to evolve. Rearrangements, gene transfers, duplications, transposable elements, single nucleotide substitutions, repetitions, insertions, deletions, have been successively discovered and modeled in the XXth century. They are used to document the evolutionary history of life on earth and to understand adaptation processes.

Ort
Dundee, Großbritannien
Zusammenfassung
In the last couple of years EU Policy makers and grant funding bodies have been championing the desire to break the translational bottle-neck. As researchers focus more on breaking the translational bottle neck they have started to look more closely at the kinds of biomarkers which will enable this. These circulating biomarkers such as circulating DNA (ctDNA/cfDNA/cftDNA), miRNA/microRNA, circulating tumour cells & exosomes are indeed useful and we have been covering them in the last few conferences with some great data and presentations from opinion leaders in the respective areas. We have heard from researchers about how they perform their biased and unbiased discovery on these biomarkers and then validate and move them into the clinic so that the blood biopsy tests can be realized.

Antibodies Targeting GPCRs, Recent Advances and Therapeutic Challenges
ID
830043
Termin
24. Nov 2016 - 25. Nov 2016
Ort
Tours, Frankreich
Zusammenfassung
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.

EMBL–WELLCOME GENOME CAMPUS CONFERENCE: Target Validation Using Genomics and Informatics
ID
823858
Termin
04. Dez 2016 - 06. Dez 2016
Ort
Heidelberg, Deutschland
Zusammenfassung
In association with Wellcome Genome Campus, we are pleased to announce the second conference on Target Validation using Genomics and Informatics.

In the past few years, exceptional progress has been made in the application of genetics- and genomics-based technologies in biomedical research. There are currently thousands of DNA variants that are robustly associated with clinically relevant human traits. Although these should provide a rich source of molecular starting points for drug discovery, and a deeper understanding of their role in human physiology, the translation of these data from large-scale projects has been slow to influence the selection and validation of new targets in drug discovery and development programmes.

This meeting will bring together researchers based in academia and industry to focus on the opportunities and challenges for genomics in drug discovery. Epidemiology, molecular biology and computational approaches will be covered with a focus on contributions these methods can offer to the development of new therapies to treat patients. The potential of human cellular assays that can be perturbed genetically (by RNAi or CRISPR) or chemically will also be emphasised.

Zusammenfassung
Scholarship & Discounted Abstract Deadline: Sep 13, 2016; Abstract Deadline: Oct 6, 2016; Discounted Registration Deadline: Nov 8, 2016

During the last decade, it has become unequivocally evident that tumor development is not a cell-autonomous process but rather depends on the intricate reciprocal interplay of mutant tumor cells with their local and distant environments. Composition and polarization of cells in the tumor microenvironment depends on genetic as well as environmental factors and is directly influenced by tumor therapy. Indeed, therapies that aim to shape the local immune milieu and consecutive signaling pathways in both stromal and tumor/stem cells address the complex pathophysiology of tumors more adequately and may therefore add substantial benefits for therapy. An absolute pre-requisite for such an endeavor is a comprehensive understanding of the exact molecular basis of the complex signaling networks in the tumor microenvironment that control the plasticity of both stromal and tumor cells, thereby shaping the complex cellular contexture, which ultimately forms a pro- or anti-tumorigenic milieu. Thus, this symposium aims to gather a comprehensive functional understanding of mediator-dependent cellular and molecular events that are responsible for the plasticity of both stromal and tumor/stem cells. It will bring together experts in cancer, stromal and immune cells to synthesize scientific knowledge about the phenomenon of cell plasticity within the tumor microenvironment, to define molecular and cellular pathways mediating plasticity and to propose approaches to interfere with cell plasticity for a new generation of effective therapeutic approaches in cancer and chronic injury. Importantly, it will bring together interdisciplinary groups of scientists or investigators who normally would not have an opportunity to meet (classical cancer biologists, tumor immunobiologists, stem cell experts and scientists working on stromal cells).

Breckenridge, Colorado, Vereinigte Staaten
Zusammenfassung
Precision genome engineering technologies enable targeted, highly efficient alteration of DNA sequences in living cells or organisms. Given their customizable nature, these technologies promise to be broadly useful both as biomedical research tools and as novel therapeutics for gene-based diseases. Given the rapidity with which this field moves, it is challenging for both newcomers and experts alike to stay updated with all of the latest advances. Furthermore, genome engineering necessarily encompasses a broad range of scientific expertise that includes fundamental mechanisms of DNA repair, basic science studies of bacterial-derived systems that form the basis of many of these technologies, innovations with genome engineering tool platforms, a wide variety of research applications spanning from model organisms to plants and mammalian cells, and pre-clinical and clinical studies aimed at translation into human therapeutics. The goal of this Keystone Symposia meeting is to bring together scientists from academia and industry with diverse but relevant expertise in a setting conducive to discussion of new results and potential collaborative efforts. Invited talks will cover a wide range of topics ranging from fundamental basic science through to clinical translation studies. Attendees of this meeting will have the opportunity to hear about the latest findings in this fast-paced field and to establish collaborations with scientists who have complementary expertise.

Keystone Symposia: Noncoding RNAs – From Disease to Targeted Therapeutics
ID
833394
Termin
05. Feb 2017 - 09. Feb 2017
Ort
Banff, Alberta, Kanada
Zusammenfassung
It has become apparent over the last decade that small and long noncoding RNAs play a major role in the regulation of gene expression and disease. While much emphasis has been centered on the role of noncoding RNAs in human disease, a gap remains in utilizing this knowledge to develop target specific approaches to disrupting noncoding RNA pathways for therapeutic gain. This meeting will for the first time bring together an interdisciplinary group of basic and applied noncoding RNA scientists in an effort to translate our current understanding of noncoding RNA biology into meaningful therapeutics for many of those diseases afflicting society. To accomplish this goal, the meeting will aim to: (1) Introduce the broad genome-wide basic fabric of noncoding RNA regulation and form and function in the cell; (2) Focus on direct RNA/chromatin/DNA or RNA/protein interactions with candidate disease-relevant model systems; and (3) Highlight synthetic biological approaches to developing RNA or oligonucleotide mimics to target and/or disrupt particular disease-relevant noncoding RNA pathways. The goal of this meeting is to bring together basic and applied scientists working on noncoding RNAs in an effort to not only better understand the role noncoding RNAs play in the regulation of disease-relevant genes but also the emerging ability to utilize this knowledge to develop targeted therapeutics, an eventuality that heralds a new frontier in drug development and therapeutics.

Keystone Symposia: Protein-RNA Interactions – Scale, Mechanisms, Structure and Function of Coding and Noncoding RNPs
ID
833426
Termin
05. Feb 2017 - 09. Feb 2017
Ort
Banff, Alberta, Kanada
Zusammenfassung
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: Inflammation-Driven Cancer – Mechanisms to Therapy
ID
833436
Termin
05. Feb 2017 - 09. Feb 2017
Ort
Keystone, Colorado, Vereinigte Staaten
Zusammenfassung
Carcinogenesis is the result of a complex interplay of cell intrinsic and extrinsic processes that promote genomic instability, sustained proliferation, resistance to apoptosis, reprogramming and reorganization of the stromal environment. An immune cell infiltrate is a characteristic feature of many tumors, and it is increasingly appreciated that immunity and inflammation are key determinants of tumor development and progression. This meeting will consider the molecular and environmental factors that shape the extensive cross-talk between immune, stromal and cancer cells in the tumor microenvironment. Positioned at the interface of cancer cell signaling, stem cells, inflammatory pathways and microbial drivers, this meeting should provide new insights into the factors that control the balance between tumor-promoting and tumor-suppressive immunity and inflammation and how this can be applied in the prevention and treatment of cancer. The meeting will attract a multi-disciplinary group of cancer cell biologists, immunologists and inflammation biologists and will be of interest to basic and clinical scientists alike.

Zusammenfassung
Of the 7000 known rare diseases, only a fraction have their molecular and mechanistic bases delineated, and many other diseases have yet to be discovered. Characterization of these disorders will reveal new biochemical pathways and cell biological processes, point to potential drug targets, and provide hope for millions of affected individuals. This meeting will address approaches and best practices in pursuing rare and undiagnosed disorders, limitations in data sharing as a barrier to new disease discovery, and examples of successful descriptions of new diseases, mechanisms, and treatments. Specific aims include fostering the development of expertise in rare diseases and the definition of their natural histories; an international network of scientists and physicians collaborating on new disease discovery by sharing phenotypic and sequence data; and new therapeutic approaches based upon rare and new disease mechanisms. Through this meeting, participants should become familiar with rare and undiagnosed disease programs, acquire insights into new disease mechanisms, learn about potential therapeutic targets, and establish collaborations that enhance rare disorder expertise and new disease discovery. The meeting will bring together physicians who are expert in rare disorders with scientists who know metabolic pathways and mechanisms, advancing understanding and therapy. A desired outcome of the meeting includes developing lists of clinical and basic research experts for synergistic collaborations, and creating an international organization to perpetuate the joint investigation of rare and new diseases.

05. Mär 2017 - 09. Mär 2017
Ort
Whistler, British Columbia, Kanada
Zusammenfassung
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.

Zusammenfassung
DNA replication and recombination are common to all cells. Errors in these processes lead to many diseases in humans, including cancer, and many fundamental questions are still unresolved. Due to recent technical advances in microscopy and other techniques, these dynamic processes can now be studied in time and space in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Moreover, breakthroughs in the biochemical reconstitution of processes in DNA replication and recombination repair as well as single particle electron microscopy promise to reveal new mechanisms at near-atomic resolution; and new DNA sequencing technologies make it possible to study these key processes in great details. Mechanistic similarities across the three domains of life provide new basic principles while differences identify potential targets for therapeutic intervention.

Ort
Santa Fe, New Mexico, Vereinigte Staaten
Zusammenfassung
Genome stability is the foundation upon which all cellular and organismal processes depend. This conference will grapple with the intricate array of biochemical reactions orchestrated by the cell to replicate, repair and segregate chromosomes accurately despite constant threats from spontaneous and environmentally-induced damage. Defects in these reactions lead to genomic instability, a confirmed driver of cancer and degenerative diseases. Fascinating and therapeutically crucial questions remain about the mechanisms underlying chromosome stability, and cross-disciplinary approaches are required to address them. How do epigenetic chromatin marks influence repair of underlying DNA sequences, and how can we predict the effects of chemotherapeutic agents that alter such marks? To what extent is the nucleus organized into subdomains with distinct functions; how are these subdomains altered when cells move or differentiate? How are the myriad helicases, nucleases and polymerases coordinated to safeguard genome stability, why are these molecules often mutated in human disease, and how can we ameliorate the effects of such mutations? What is the array of strategies available to cancer cells as they achieve unlimited proliferation? This conference has a history of bringing together investigators from diverse subfields who otherwise rarely meet. Cutting-edge concepts in translational, genomic, cellular, molecular, RNA and structural biology will be dissected to take the conversation to unprecedented levels of depth and breadth. The concurrent conference on “DNA Replication and Recombination” will provide additional opportunities for cross-talk. Both conferences are committed to nurturing interactions among longtime experts in the field with students, postdocs and investigators new to the field.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Neural circuits in the past, present and future
ID
806309
Termin
14. Mai 2017 - 17. Mai 2017
Ort
Heidelberg, Deutschland
Zusammenfassung
The goal of this symposium is to promote interactions between researchers studying neural circuits both in traditional model systems (worm, fly, fish, mouse), in humans, and in diverse, emerging models to (i) discuss the origins, commonalities and differences of animal nervous systems, (ii) highlight the spectacular capabilities of neural circuits to control animal behaviour, and (iii) reflect on how technological innovations will open up new possibilities to understand and repair the nervous system. By bringing together a unique and eclectic mix of scientists studying nervous systems from the molecular to the psychological level, this symposium should stimulate novel cross-fertilisation of ideas and methodologies to understand neural circuit structure and function.

Keystone Symposia - Single Cell Omics
ID
825424
Termin
26. Mai 2017 - 30. Mai 2017
Ort
Stockholm, Schweden
Zusammenfassung
Single cell omics is a new frontier in biology, where genome-wide data is captured at the resolution of individual cells. Single cell high-throughput technologies are being developed in the areas of imaging, mass spectrometry and DNA- and RNA-sequencing, and combinations thereof. The corresponding software and visualization tools are also a large active field of research. Single cell omics has important implications for all areas of development, differentiation and cellular decision-making, because these can now be studied at unprecedented resolution. Equally, single cell omics methods are shedding new light on immunity and cancer, due to the heterogeneous cell populations involved in both areas of biology. Therefore, these approaches are revolutionizing both basic biology as well as our understanding of disease, and technologies involved in translation to medicine. Since the field is in its infancy, and there are few meetings dedicated to this topic, there is a huge unmet need in the community to congregate and exchange ideas and information about new methods and the biological insights gained. A meeting such as this will be of continuing importance until single cell omics technologies become commonplace and established, and integrated into all areas of biology.

ID
809676
Termin
12. Jul 2017 - 14. Nov 2017
Ort
Heidelberg, Deutschland
Zusammenfassung
The current speed at which novel high-throughput technologies are developed and large-scale biological data are produced offers tremendous opportunities for enhancing our molecular understanding of biological systems. One of the biggest challenges will be to interpret these large-scale biological “omics” data and to develop computational and statistical approaches to generate a coherent biological model that will enable us to address novel questions about the consequences of genetic and environmental perturbations in complex biological systems.
