29 March–2 April 2017 The 13th​ International Conference on Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases and Related Neurological Disorders (AD/PD 2017)

Vienna, Austria

We invite you to join us at the upcoming 13th International Conference on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases and related neurological disorders. The groundbreaking series of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases Conferences attract international medical and scientific professionals worldwide. The Conference is at the forefront of unraveling the mechanisms and improving the treatment of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other related neurodegenerative diseases. AD/PDTM Conferences uniquely combine distinct neurodegenerative diseases in one setting and examine their similarities and differences; a strong focus is mechanisms of disease, prevention and therapy.

4–6 May 2017 1st International Symposium (2017): The Beneficial Effects of Argan Oil on Human Health

Errachidia, Morocco

This symposium aims to join together national and international university researchers and health professionals operating in the public and private sector.
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

Mainz, Germany

The focus of the 2017 IMB Conference is on “Gene Regulation by the Numbers: Quantitative Approaches to Study Transcription”. Our conference will explore the latest findings and technological developments in the field of gene regulation. The regulation of gene expression is a highly complex process in which numerous different factors play a role, such as signalling pathways, transcription factors and epigenetic modifications. With the recent surge in the development of omics technologies, researchers have generated vast amounts of data describing the contribution of these factors to controlling gene activity. However, interpreting, validating and integrating the data remains a major challenge. A combination of quantitative analysis and experimental research is therefore crucial to draw a complete picture of gene regulation.
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

Basel, Switzerland

At the conference, entitled “Non-Coding RNAs and Epigenetics in Cancer”, leaders in the field will present the roles of miRNAs and lncRNAs in cancer, with a focus on the recently identified novel mechanisms of action, and discuss the current strategies in designing ncRNA-targeting therapeutics, as well as the associated challenges. We hope to see you all, young in spirit and mind, in the new Eldorado of Science topics in biomedical sciences

2–5 July 2017 Beatson International Cancer Conference: FEEDING THE BEAST - The Metabolic Landscape of the Tumour and its Host

Glasgow, Scotland

The Beatson International Cancer Conference series is designed to be a relaxed and friendly meeting where delegates and invited speakers have a chance to interact on both a scientific and social basis. We encourage the speakers to stay for the duration of the conference to ensure this interaction.
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.
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the conference administrator,

7–9 August 2017 Momentera Cancer Therapy 2017

Frankfurt, Germany

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.

Chairman of German Cancer Research Center
