ISIDOG 2017
26 Oct 2017 - 28 Oct 2017 • Vienna, Austria
Abstract:
The Austrian Commission of European Society for Infectious Diseases (ESIDOG) and the International Society for Infectious Diseases (ISIDOG) in cooperation with the Austrian Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (OEGGG) invite to the 02nd ISIDOG Congress 2017, which takes place from 26th-29th of October in Vienna, Austria. An international team of well-known experts presents the state-of-the-art, evidence-based developments in infectious diseases and focus on main topics such as STI, HPV, Vulvovaginitis, probiotics, infection in pregnancy etc.. The 02nd ISIDOG Congress 2017 addresses not only gynaecologist, obstetricians, nurses, residents, medicine students but all interested in woman´s health and infectious diseases.

World Immunotherapy Congress 2017
31 Oct 2017 - 02 Nov 2017 • Basel, Switzerland
Abstract:
Immunotherapy currently offers the brightest hope for cancer treatment. New developments with checkpoint inhibitors and co-stimulatory targets have enabled some stunning breakthroughs and high optimism for the sector. Recently, there have been some incredibly exciting new therapies in areas such as CAR-T and Oncolytic Viral Immunotherapy.

Keystone Symposia: Emerging Technologies in Vaccine Discovery and Development
28 Jan 2018 - 01 Feb 2018 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Immunization remains one of the most effective preventive public health measures, the indirect effects of which are considered a global public good with an impressive net return over costs. Vaccines have contributed to “final public good”: eradication of two viruses and regional elimination of a half dozen or more other pathogens. The development of new vaccines, therefore, would seem an obvious priority area for use-inspired and applied biomedical research, yet the endeavor has become increasingly more challenging. The “easy vaccines have been made” belief, crowded vaccine schedules, escalating costs of full vaccination programs (particularly in cost-sensitive Gavi-eligible countries), and platforms for maternal immunization and Public Health Emergencies of International Concern have all contributed to an urgent need for new or improved approaches to the discovery, development and delivery of vaccines, particularly those that are cheaper, simpler to manufacture, and more convenient to use. The aim of this symposium is to provide a comprehensive survey of emerging tools from the most upstream antigen/vaccine discovery, to active and passive immunization platforms, clinical trials, and manufacturing, formulation and delivery, the desired outcome of which is to provide a forum for an integrated discussion on how best to meet the increasing challenges faced by the scientific community’s efforts in new vaccine development. The Keystone Symposia conference has been specifically paired with the conference on “HIV Vaccines” since discovering, developing and delivering an effective HIV vaccine may be one that benefits most from novel technologies, including new tools in structural immunology and interrogating human immune responses.

Keystone Symposia: Translational Systems Immunology
28 Jan 2018 - 01 Feb 2018 • Snowbird, Utah, United States
Abstract:
This conference will cover the exciting technology advances that are enhancing our ability to elucidate human immune function and networks as well as practical applications in drug and biomarker discovery and patient stratification. The meeting begins with a look at progress in human genetics and the use of sequencing to assign functional mutations to rare human immune phenotypes. The impact of common variants on immune function requires larger sample sizes, and speakers will cover how genome-wide high-throughput genomics in combination with detailed phenotyping and physiologically relevant perturbations are providing foundational data sets that allow an unbiased view of immune function in cells and tissues. Also discussed will be emerging computational and analytical methods that enable integration and interpretation of high-content molecular data. The meeting will then move on to look at the application of these technological advances, expanding investigation to study the immune response in tissues and organs to enable a deeper understanding of interaction between immune and non-immune cells and their respective roles in disease states. Critical to clinical progress is the translation of systems immunology research into novel therapies and diagnostic or prognostic tests. Sessions themed around infectious disease and vaccine development advances in immune-oncology and patient stratification in complex disease and treatment response aim to provide depth from foundational science to clinical translation. Finally, a key goal is fostering collaboration across disciplines and the development of novel ideas. The meeting will be relevant for immunologists, computational biologists and clinicians with an interest in molecular characterization of the immune system.

Cell-Weizmann Institute of Science Symposium: Next Gen Immunology
11 Feb 2018 - 14 Feb 2018 • Rehovot, Israel
Abstract:
To help to address this challenge, the Cell-Weizmann Institute of Science Symposium: Next Gen Immunology is bringing together leading scientists who think about immunity in different contexts and have in common the perspective of an immune system that is an integral part of the meta-organism. They are also driving the development of new tools that are much needed to understand the functional diversity of the immune response: from live in vivo imaging and single-cell technologies, to ‘omics’ approaches.
