MicroRNAs and Noncoding RNAs in Cancer
2015-06-07 to 2015-06-12
Keystone Resort, Keystone, Colorado, USA

MicroRNAs and other noncoding RNAs have recently emerged as key regulators of gene expression during development and are frequently mis-expressed in human disease states, in particular cancer. MicroRNAs act to promote or repress cell proliferation, migration and apoptosis during development, all processes that go awry in cancer. Thus, microRNAs have the ability to behave like oncogenes or tumor suppressors. Their small size and molecular properties make microRNAs amenable as targets and therapeutics in cancer treatment. MicroRNAs thus present a paradigm shift in thinking about gene regulation during development and disease and provide the oncologist with a potentially powerful new battery of agents to diagnose and treat cancer. However, while hundreds of human microRNAs and noncoding RNAs are known, relatively little is known about their roles and targets, and there is still a limited literature on using these molecules in the clinic. The specific aims of this meeting serve to address these deficiencies and are as follows: 1) Focus on the exciting biology of microRNAs and noncoding RNAs in controlling developmental and cancer processes like cell proliferation, differentiation, cell cycle, apoptosis and metastasis. This meeting will highlight the best current research into the role that miRNAs play in these fundamental processes and provide the basic understanding that will drive the invention of powerful clinical tools; 2) Focus on the latest efforts to harness the power of these RNAs as agents in the fight against cancer. Discussions will range from use of miRNAs as diagnostic and prognostic markers in cancer, to SNPs providing risk factors for cancer, to the delivery and effectiveness of small RNA therapeutics in clinically relevant settings; 3) Attract the best researchers working in small RNAs and cancer to one place for critical discussions that will advance the field and accelerate the benchside to bedside use of this technology; and 4) Provide a stimulating environment where students, postdocs and junior investigators can present and discuss their research with the best minds in the field. link

International Conference on Transcriptomics
2015-07-27 to 2015-07-29
Orlando, FL, USA
We welcome you to the International Conference on Transcriptomics popularly known as Transcriptomics-2015, which is going to be held during July 27-29, 2015 at Hotel Hyatt Regency - Orlando International Airport, Florida, USA. The theme of the conference "Transcriptome Analysis: Unveiling the layers of Expression" is all about simplifying the complex phenomenon behind protein expression by RNA-Seq. Transcriptomics is a cross-disciplinary area concerned with transcriptome analysis and how the next generation sequencing is replacing microarrays as the choice method to accurate expression profiling and quantify overall gene expression level. Transcriptomics research provides a profitable business opportunity to several pharmaceutical and biotech companies as these technologies have wide application areas such as drug discovery and research followed by clinical diagnosis of various disorders. With the arrival of advanced technological platforms, it creates a need for effective bioinformatics tools and services in order to manage and analyze huge amount of data released from these technologies. Transcriptomics mainly focusses on the Universities, Institutes and major Societies along with big market in Transcriptome technology. link

Metabolic Signaling & Disease: From Cell to Organism
2015-08-11 to 2015-08-15
Metabolic regulation is at the intersection of many scientific fields, ranging from basic biochemistry and molecular biology to physiology, to the study of disease pathogenesis. Currently, a major challenge for these diverse fields is to define commonalities and differences in metabolic pathways and their regulation, and determine the role of these processes for physiology and disease states. This meeting will fill an important gap by bringing together outstanding researchers focused on diverse pathways, cell types, or diseases with a common theme of understanding how metabolism is regulated in physiology and disease states. link

Eukaryotic mRNA Processing
2015-08-18 to 2015-08-22
We are pleased to host the tenth Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Eukaryotic mRNA Processing, which will begin at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, August 18 and run through lunch on Saturday, August 22, 2015. The meeting will focus on the mechanisms and regulation of mRNA splicing, polyadenylation, turnover, localization and RNA interference. It will include all aspects mRNA transport, processing and control, including microRNA function. The meeting is intended to provide a format for the exchange of ideas and information, to discuss the latest research findings and technical advances, and to facilitate interaction amongst groups active in diverse systems. link

Signalling 2015: Cellular Functions of Phosphoinositides and Inositol Phosphates
2015-09-01 to 2015-09-04
Robinson College, Cambridge, UK
This meeting will bring together both world leading and early career scientists to discuss their latest research into the cellular functions of inositol phospholipids and phosphates. Posters and short oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts. This meeting will commemorate the retirement of Professor Robin Irvine FRS. link

78th Harden Conference: Protein Kinases in Health and Disease
2015-09-15 to 2015-09-18
Norton Park Hotel, Winchester, UK
The aim of this meeting is to highlight new research on the regulation and function of protein kinases in cancer, inflammation and metabolism. Speakers from the pharmaceutical sector will give an update on progress in the development and therapeutic use of specific kinase inhibitors. The regulation of kinase activation by ubiquitination, and the possibility of therapeutic targeting this post-translational modification will also be discussed. In addition, there will be a session focusing on methodological advances in kinase research. link
