Abstract:
The Cancer Imaging and Therapy conference will focus on optical methods in cancer, centered on imaging and treatment of cancer. The conference will accept submissions on topics on the molecular and cellular level, such as reporters and theranostics; on the tissue and pre-clinical (animal) level, such as pathology methods and advances in imaging of tumor models; and on human tissue and living human subjects, when specifically dealing with cancer. More generic biomedical optics and biophotonics research involving human tissues or living human subjects should be submitted to the Clinical and Translational Biophotonics conference at this congress.

Keystone Symposia: Organs- and Tissues-on-Chips
08 Apr 2018 - 12 Apr 2018 • Big Sky, Montana, United States
Abstract:
More than 30% of promising medications have failed in human clinical trials because they are determined to be toxic despite promising pre-clinical studies in 2-D cell culture and animal models. Another 60% fail due to lack of efficacy. Consequently, though several thousand diseases affect humans, only about 500 have approved treatments. However, with the growing understanding of human biology, along with increased availability of innovative technologies, there is now an unprecedented opportunity to translate scientific discoveries more efficiently into new, more effective and safer health interventions. Organs- or Tissues-on-Chips are innovative, alternative approaches that would enable early indications and potentially more reliable readouts of toxicity and efficacy. These microfabricated devices recapitulate the multicellular architectures, tissue-tissue interfaces, physicochemical microenvironments, vascular perfusion and innervation, producing in essence microphysiological systems that mimic human tissue and organ functionality not possible with conventional 2D or 3D culture systems. Through innovative biosensing and readout approaches, these devices employ high-resolution, real-time imaging and non-invasive analysis of biochemical, genetic and metabolic activities of living cells in a functional tissue and organ context. This technology has great potential to advance the study of tissue development, organ physiology and disease etiology. In the context of drug discovery and development, it should be especially valuable for the study of molecular mechanisms of action, prioritization of lead candidates, toxicity testing and biomarker identification. These microfabricated devices have also proven to be useful for modeling human diseases. This conference will touch on ongoing efforts and various applications of tissue-on-chips technology to studies in precision medicine, environmental exposures, reproduction and development, cancer and for use at the International Space Station.

Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast
11 Apr 2018 - 12 Apr 2018 • Boston, United States
Abstract:
A rise in chronic diseases, improvements in technology, and a growing demand for easy to use drug administration products has in recent years, created a booming Pre-Filled Syringes industry.

Some notable areas of increased attention have been the broader trends for combination products and biologics, as well as the move towards digital health and improving patient adherence due to increased self-administration figures. As well as these areas of lucrative opportunity, there are still several ongoing challenges that the key-thought leaders are battling to overcome. these include the challenges of chemical compatibility, user safety, high-volume and highly viscous formulation, and non-compliance. Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast will once again play host to an international audience to discuss emerging trends and offer innovative solutions to the challenges facing the prefilled industry, helping attendees to secure global success for their PFS device. Our notable panel of industry leading experts will include senior representatives and decision makers from the likes of Shire, Scynexis, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Eli Lilly, Takeda, Sanofi, Teva, Medimmune, Shire, GlaxoSmithKline and Merck.
