29 March–2 April 2017 The 13th International Conference on Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases and Related Neurological Disorders (AD/PD 2017)
4–6 May 2017 1st International Symposium (2017): The Beneficial Effects of Argan Oil on Human Health
This event will offer a unique opportunity to share innovative scientific results, to stimulate collaborations and to promote research on the beneficial effects of Argan oil on health. The socioeconomic and environmental approach will also be handled during this meeting.
19–21 June 2017 2017 IMB Conference: Gene Regulation by the Numbers: Quantitative Approaches to Study Transcription
The conference will address major open questions in the field that quantitative approaches will help to address, for example:
• How do gene regulatory networks make robust decisions in the face of intracellular and environmental fluctuations?
• How do epigenetic mechanisms ensure that gene expression programmes are faithfully transmitted within cell lineages and from one generation to the next?
• How do RNA-RNA and RNA-protein interactions control gene expression at the post-transcriptional level?
• How do DNA sequence variations influence gene expression and phenotypic outcomes, and what are the long-term consequences of this on an evolutionary time scale?
• How can dynamic models help us to understand signalling, gene regulation and cell fate decision making?
• Can we improve the speed and accuracy of existing data analysis strategies?
• What are the upcoming challenges in data analysis?
This conference will be a unique opportunity for participants to learn about the latest discoveries, talk about their own findings and initiate research partnerships. As well as scientific sessions, there will be many networking opportunities, including poster sessions, a conference dinner and an excursion to nearby Kloster Eberbach monastery. We hope that the ideas and concepts developed during the conference will result in exciting collaborations. Anyone interested is welcome to attend and can register online.
21–23 June 2017 2nd International Symposium on Frontiers in Molecular Science - Non-Coding RNAs and Epigenetics in Cancer
2–5 July 2017 Beatson International Cancer Conference: FEEDING THE BEAST - The Metabolic Landscape of the Tumour and its Host
Aims of the conference
Ground-breaking work from laboratories around the world has established that the metabolism of cancer cells is central to the control of tumour growth. Indeed, malignant cells and their normal counterparts engage different metabolic pathways, offering potential therapeutic opportunities for cancer treatment. Moreover, a complex network of metabolic interactions between cancer and non-malignant cells contributes to an aberrant metabolic landscape that may prevail in cancer patients. This meeting will provide a topical view of the metabolic vulnerabilities of cancer cells and how the interplay between tumour, stroma and systemic metabolism contributes to cancer progression and highlights opportunities for cancer treatment and prevention.
Once again, the conference will be held at Glasgow University, as the venue proved to be so successful in 2016. There are several events arranged to give you a taste of the culture and warmth of the West of Scotland and the scientific content of the conference is guaranteed to stimulate.

7–9 August 2017 Momentera Cancer Therapy 2017
It is a great pleasure for me to personally welcome each of you to the Global Conference on Cancer therapy 2017 during Aug 7th - 9th. A global conference on cancer therapy is timely and well to the point, since remarkable progress has been made in specific areas of cancer therapy, in particular, in immunotherapy, also in combination with other modes or treatment. I see that a number of experts in the cancer field are participating in this conference. Thus, I am sure that it will be stimulating and rewarding, in particular for young clinicians and scientists.
The "Key Principles of Cancer Therapy" will permit the opportunity to attend a number o interactive sessions, to discuss upcoming challenges and to provide a platform of ideas. I trust that novel opportunities will arise and, in general it will broaden the knowledge of the participants.
I trust, in addition that the surroundings of the conference location will also contribute to the success of this meeting.

20–23 September 2017 FENS Regional Meeting 2017
The Regional FENS Meeting in Pécs will focus on the most recent discoveries in neuroscience from molecules to behavior, highlighting discoveries of translational potential. In addition to the wide range of scientific insights a special emphasis will be placed on cutting edge technologies. The conference will be held for four days and will include six plenary speaker sessions, eighteen symposia and three poster sessions.
The scientific program of the conference has been chosen by the Program Committee. Besides the scientific program the Organizing Committees are putting together an exciting and diverse schedule regarding the satellite - special and social events.
18 symposia have been selected from 28 proposals covering all areas of neuroscience with a special emphasis on the following topics:
