3rd Small Molecule Activation Conference
19 Feb 2019 - 22 Feb 2019 • Nassau, The Bahamas
Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
Abstract:
Following the success of the second SMA conference in Cancun, which took place in May 2016 we are delighted to be organising a third series. Small molecules are constituents of the air we breathe (e.g. N2, O2, CO2) and take part in element cycles and various metabolic processes. Further representatives (e.g. H2, CO, CH4) are produced/converted in nature under anaerobic conditions or in industrial processes on large scales. Hence, small molecules such as those mentioned are readily accessible and comparatively inexpensive, so that it is highly desirable to include them into syntheses of value-added products or to use them as reservoirs of chemical energy (fuels). However, at the same time they are typically quite thermodynamically stable, so that their utilization requires an activation step. The topic of this conference will thus be concerned with various aspects of small molecule activation, with a focus on molecular insights. It provides a stimulating and interdisciplinary environment for both senior scientists and young researchers to discuss latest progress in the field.

Keystone Symposia: Cell Competition in Development and Disease
24 Feb 2019 - 28 Feb 2019 • Lake Tahoe, California, United States
Abstract:
Cell competition represents a radical departure from the established view that embryonic development is simply a matter of following a preprogrammed set of rules. Instead, it is a highly conserved process that promotes the context-dependent elimination of less fit cells and stimulates growth of more fit cells during growth and homeostasis. Although it has long been known that the basis of competition is the ability of growing cells to monitor fitness of their neighbors, and can be induced via differences in protein production capacity, Myc levels and apico-basal cell polarity, only recently have signaling and effector mechanisms been identified. This conference aims to bring together, for the first time, researchers, from diverse fields who study competitive and cooperative interactions between cells. It will cover recent findings on quality control systems, developing tissues, stem cell populations and tumorigenesis, as well as address important evolutionary aspects of competitive and cooperative behavior in diverse model systems. New technologies have uncovered the prevalence of cell competition in humans, with surprising outcomes and implications for human disease. As the first broad conference of this sort, it will define critical questions shared by the diverse investigators and help shape this exciting and emerging field. Given the wide range of developmental and homeostatic systems that are controlled by cell competition, understanding the mechanisms and consequences of competitive interactions may permit the manipulation of these processes for therapeutic purposes.

Keystone Symposia: Unraveling the Secrets of Kidney Disease
03 Mar 2019 - 07 Mar 2019 • Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Abstract:
Scholarship and Discounted Abstract Deadline: November 19, 2018

Close to 1 in 11 people in the world suffers from kidney disease, and the incidence is increasing, especially in the developing world. This issue was recently reviewed and emphasized in a Lancet article (Global Health Atlas). Acute and chronic kidney disease is associated with a highly significant increase in cardiovascular death, and chronic kidney disease (CKD) represents a leading cause of death in the United States. There is no cure for this disease, with current treatment strategies relying on blood pressure control through blockade of the renin-angiotensin system. Such approaches only delay the development of end-stage kidney disease and can be associated with serious side effects. Recent identification of several novel mechanisms contributing to CKD development - including vascular changes, loss of podocytes and renal epithelial cells, matrix deposition, inflammation and metabolic dysregulation - has revealed new potential therapeutic approaches for CKD. This conference will review clinical and observational studies in the kidney disease area, highlight recent advances in basic biology of kidney and kidney disease, assesses emerging strategies and agents for CKD treatment, and discuss major obstacles in drug development. The conference will also encourage collaborations among clinicians and researchers from academia and pharma= and accelerate innovation in this field. Furthermore, since more than half of kidney disease is caused by diabetes, the symposium will greatly benefit from the joint pairing with the conference on “Diabetes: Innovations, Outcomes and Personalized Therapies.”

Keystone Symposia: Diabetes - Innovations, Outcomes and Personalized Therapies
03 Mar 2019 - 07 Mar 2019 • Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Abstract:
Scholarship and Discounted Abstract Deadline: November 19, 2018

Diabetes remains a public health challenge of epidemic proportions. Modern treatment algorithms are evolving to recommend higher focus on personalized approaches to diabetes care. However, as diabetes remains a disease characterized by excess elevation of a plasma biomarker, glucose, further refinement of our understanding of the disease and its comorbidities is required to provide optimal guidance for precision medicine. Advancement of research technologies and the ability to handle large data sets have enabled systems biology approaches to unravel different etiologies and pathophysiological consequences of diabetes. Future diabetes discovery efforts will focus on pairing knowledge about genetic risk and environmental triggers of diabetes-associated pathologies. Using deep phenome characterization and molecular network analyses diabetes, researchers will be able to launch modern translational approaches to diabetes care innovation. The objectives of the conference are to provide directional guidance for future pressure points of diabetes care, and focus on specific diabetes complications representing particular unmet needs. Further, forefront discoveries of genetic risk determinants and their molecular mechanisms will be presented together with lively debates about the translatability of such insights into novel curative therapies. This symposium is paired with "Unraveling the Secrets of Kidney Disease."

Nutrients 2019 – Nutritional Advances in the Prevention and Management of Chronic Disease
25 Sep 2019 - 27 Sep 2019 • Barcelona, Spain
Abstract:
We are pleased to announce our first international conference Nutrients 2019 - Nutritional Advances in the Prevention and Management of Chronic Disease. The conference is organized by the MDPI open-access journal Nutrients (Impact Factor 4.196) and will be held as a three-day event in Barcelona, Spain, from September 25-27, 2019.

Chronic diseases are increasing throughout the developed and developing world. A significant contributor to the burgeoning rates of chronic disease is diet, with some dietary components contributing to disease development, and others being protective. We invite researchers, food industry representatives, policy makers, and others with an interest in the impacts of diet on chronic disease to join us for what will be an exciting event.

The conference will host a number of internationally renowned speakers, and invites submissions for oral presentations and posters. All presenters at the conference will be encouraged to submit a full manuscript of their presentation for consideration for publication in a Special Issue of Nutrients.

We hope to see you in the vibrant and exciting city of Barcelona in September 2019.
