9 December 2021 ncRNA Webinar | Role of microRNA in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms

Online

Neuroendocrine neoplasms are highly heterogeneous tumors that are incompletely understood at the molecular level. Diagnosis is frequently delayed, pathologic classification can be challenging, and many patients develop non-curable metastatic disease. microRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNA regulatory molecules that negatively regulate gene expression. These molecules are often dysregulated in tumorigenic processes and can also be used as disease biomarkers. Over the past decade, it has become increasingly clear that miRNAs mediate multiple aspects of neuroendocrine neoplasia and have clinical diagnostic utility. In this Special Issue, we focus on clinical, biological, and computational studies of miRNA-mediated gene regulation and dysregulation in all NENs (including lung carcinoids, small cell lung carcinoma, gastroenteropancreatic NENs, Merkel cell carcinoma, medullary thyroid cancer, pituitary adenoma, neuroblastoma, paraganglioma, pheochromocytoma, etc.). A full understanding of miRNA changes in these diverse neoplasms will advance our knowledge of NEN biology and pave the way for novel diagnostic, prognostic, predictive, and therapeutic approaches.

The following experts will be present and talk:

  • Prof. Dr. Neil Renwick, Laboratory of Translational RNA Biology, Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, Queen's University, Kingston, Canada
  • Ms. Jina Nanayakkara, Laboratory of Translational RNA Biology, Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, Queen's University, Kingston, Canada
  • Dr. Iacovos Michael, Biological Sciences, Sunnybrook Research Institute, Canada

When? 9 December 2021 at 3:00pm CET | 9:00am EDT | 9:00pm CST Asia

13 December 2021 Biology Webinar | Non-alcohol and Non-infection-Associated Liver Diseases

Online

Non-alcohol associated and non-infection liver injury is a liver disease of various etiologies which are not induced by chronic alcohol abuse or hepatotrophic viruses. Usually, this liver disease is associated with diabetes, dyslipidemia, bile acid metabolism dysfunctions and pro-inflammatory liver phenotype. These changes can be because of lifestyle (NAFLD/NASH), drug-induced, herb-induced and other metabolic abnormalities including those caused by genetic defects (Hemochromatosis, Wilson’s disease, Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, Gilbert syndrome).

The following experts will be present and talk:

  • Prof. Dr. Kusum K. Kharbanda, VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Nebraska Medical Center, USA
  • Prof. Dr. Valentina Medici, Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University of California Davis, USA
  • Prof. Dr. Hartmut Jaeschke, University Distinguished Professor and Chair, Department of Pharmacology, Toxicology & Therapeutics, University of Kansas Medical Center, USA
  • Prof. Dr. Natalie J. Torok, Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Stanford University and VA Palo Alto, Stanford, CA, USA
  • Prof. Dr. Robert G. Bennett, VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Nebraska Medical Center, USA

When? 13 December 2021 at 4:00pm CET | 10:00am EST | 11:00pm CST Asia

14 December 2021 Infection-Associated Liver Diseases

Online

Viral hepatitis is a substantial part of non-alcoholic liver diseases. Hepatotropic viruses may serve as cytotoxic and non-cytotoxic agents driving the disease progression, which may potentially lead to chronic liver injury. Co-infections with other hepatotropic viruses increase the pathogenesis of viral hepatitis and the progression to end-stage liver diseases. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis is one of the common features accompanying viral hepatitis development, but the mechanisms behind this are not quite clear. In this webinar, we will focus on some aspects of liver-associated HIV-infection, as well as on potentiation of HIV with HCV-infection. In addition, as chronic hepatitis B (CHB) is still considered an uncurable infection, we will overview new therapeutic targets for CHB treatment and the application of long-acting nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors as a potential medication for this infection.

The following experts will be present and speak:

  • Prof. Dr. Natalia Osna, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Nebraska Medical Center, USA
  • Prof. Dr. Kenneth Sherman, Division of Digestive Diseases, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, USA
  • Prof. Dr. Richard Sterling, Department of Internal Medicine, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, USA
  • Dr. Sandra Phillips, Institute of Hepatology, King’s College London, London, UK
  • Prof. Dr. Larisa Poluektova, Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Neuroscience, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, USA

When? 14 December 2021 at 3:00pm CET | 9:00am EDT | 10:00pm CST Asia

6–9 September 2022 The 4th ISFMS: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Druggability of Proteins

Florence, Italy

We would like to invite you to The 4th ISFMS: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Druggability of Proteins, which will be held in the wonderful city of Florence, Italy, in the period September 6-9, 2022. The conference will be hosted at the University of Florence, in the biomedical campus nearby the main city hospital, which is easily accessible from the airport, train station or city center. Apart the high quality science which will be presented during the event, our fantastic location will afford the possibility to visit the city in which Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Galileo Galilei (to mention just a few personalities) lived and created some of their unique artistic and scientific masterpieces. The friendly and peaceful atmosphere of our city will surely favor nice scientific interactions and the possibility to establish interesting contacts with scientists from all over the world in a collaborative manner.
