Gordon Research Seminar — Colloidal, Macromolecular and Polyelectrolyte Solutions
03 Feb 2018 - 04 Feb 2018 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
The Gordon Research Seminar on Colloidal, Macromolecular and Polyelectrolyte Solutions is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. The focus of this meeting is on the collective response of various biological and synthetic molecules and particles, and how we can harness the ordered structures and complex dynamics that emerge as they assemble at various length scales.

Gordon Research Conference — Colloidal, Macromolecular and Polyelectrolyte Solutions
04 Feb 2018 - 09 Feb 2018 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
Colloidal, macromolecular, and polyelectrolyte solutions are of abiding interest not only because of the fascinating range of phenomena they display, but because of their tremendous utility. In many applications, such "soft materials" encounter hard(er) matter, with the hard-soft interface being where exploitable properties occur. The sensory properties of food, the durability of coatings, and the adhesion of biofilms are three examples among many. The science and technology of how hard and soft materials meet and work together will be the overall theme of the 2018 meeting of this GRC.

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.
