Jointly with the International Advisory Committee, we are putting an exciting programme that will span all aspects of oxytocin and vasopressin research from cellular physiology to behaviour. The most recent advances in the field will be presented by leading researchers. There will also be ample opportunity for new and emerging researchers to present their work as part of symposiums, oral presentation programme or at the poster session.
At this time, we invite you to submit proposals for Symposia at WCNH 2017. All proposals must be submitted through the e-mail email@example.com from now up to 31 October 2016. The proposals should follow this template form. The submitted symposia proposals will be evaluated by the Local Organizing and the International Advisory Committees, and the selected ones will be announced by 15 November 2016.Find out more »
In the last two decades it has become apparent that mitochondria perform a multitude of functions to maintain cellular homeostasis, all of which are intimately linked to bioenergetics. New cutting edge technology, novel molecular tools and mitochondrially targeted therapeutics developed in the past five years have made it possible to more accurately and deeply probe mitochondrial function and have dramatically altered the study of bioenergetics under physiological conditions.
Our knowledge of the mechanisms by which mitochondrial function is regulated and its contribution to cellular homeostasis is also rapidly expanding. However, these advances are generally made in the context of a specific pathology or organ system and are not always widely recognized by investigators studying a different pathology. Further, a great gap in knowledge still exists in translating mitochondrial measurement to human studies.
The goal of the “Physiological Bioenergetics- from Bench to Bedside” conference is to bring together experts studying varied facets of bioenergetics across disciplines and in the context of different pathologies to share their most recent findings and to discuss strategies to advance the field of “mitochondriology” into translational and clinical studies. This is a “”must attend”” conference for a researcher at any stage of their career who is interested in studying mitochondrial function or integrated bioenergetics.Find out more »
“Recent studies have revealed the complexity of the gut microbial ecology and its network connectivity to the metabolic regulation of important pathways in the host. Studies on microbiota from various body sites are helping us to understand how microorganisms affect the host. Alterations in microbiome composition have been associated with many non-infectious diseases including inflammatory bowel conditions, autoimmune diseases, cancers and diabetes, although in many cases causality has yet to be established.
This meeting will update current knowledge of how various microbiomes (oral, gut, lung, non-bacterial etc.) communicate with the host and the factors that influence these interactions. The programme will discuss the new developments enabled by metagenomics, metabolomics and other technologies. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in discussions on how to apply recent discoveries to disease processes, health restoration and maintenance. This year’s meeting will also include discussion sessions on faecal transplants and on the evidence required to prove causality in microbiome research. As in previous years, the warm welcome given to students and the open friendly atmosphere provide attendees with an enjoyable conference.”Find out more »
You can participate in very active discussions and cutting‐edge lectures by the world’s top scientists and neurologists including three Nobel laureates as well as hear all the advances of scientific and clinical neurology. Gene therapy and stem/ iPS cell medicine are such examples on the one hand and Brain‐Machine‐Interface, information technology and robotics in care and rehabilitation on the other. Neurology related to environmental and disaster medicine will also attract many neurologists particularly in rapidly developing counties.Find out more »
SfN’s 47th annual meeting, Neuroscience 2017, is the world’s largest neuroscience conference for scientists and physicians devoted to understanding the brain and nervous system. SfN invites you to its renowned venue where neuroscientists collaborate and network with peers, learn from experts, explore the newest neuroscience tools and technologies, and discover great career opportunities. Neuroscience 2017 is a prominent venue for sharing great science. Attendees can take advantage of countless opportunities to share and learn about emerging and unpublished findings, explore career paths and professional development opportunities, and discuss hot topics in scientific publishing, academia, advocacy, public education, and more.Find out more »
