Date Event Description
March 3, 2018 DC1816: Neuroendocrine Cancer Management: Evolving Therapies & Approaches
Register   Details

Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) pose numerous clinical challenges due to their rarity, heterogeneity and lack of standardized diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Over the last five years, the treatment landscape and biologic understanding of neuroendocrine tumors has shifted dramatically with significant advancements in diagnosis, loco-regional and systemic therapies rapidly being developed. Several large randomized phase III trials of novel treatments have resulted in new drug approvals and the increased knowledge of specific pathways implicated in neuroendocrine tumor growth has shifted the focus of many clinical trials.

In light of these exciting new developments, this conference has been customized to provide the latest evidence based practice to health care professionals. Each session will address how the expanding treatment choices and research studies will influence individual treatment plans and impact NET patient management in the future. Don’t miss out on this important and informative symposium.

Welcome Plasmid Enthusiasts!

We are pleased to invite you to attend Plasmid Biology 2018 on the scenic University of Washington campus in Seattle, Washington from August 5 -10, 2018. The conference is the biennial International Symposium of the International Society for Plasmid Biology and other Mobile Genetic Elements (ISPB). Meeting topics will cover several areas relating to plasmids and mobile genetic elements (MGEs), including replication and maintenance, horizontal transfer, genomics and systems biology, synthetic biology, industrial, agricultural and medical biotechnology, evolution, ecology, epidemiology, and the role of plasmids/MGEs in bacterial pathogenesis.

Our conference will showcase diverse topics and presenters (with established investigators, students, and post-doctoral fellows). The keynote lecture “Evolution of Antibiotic resistance” will be given Sunday evening, August 5th by Dr. Dan Andersson from the University of Uppsala, Sweden. Subsequent sessions will feature several invited talks by leading international researchers and additional oral and poster presentations chosen from submitted abstracts. The various sessions will give all attendees an opportunity to present their latest findings, with ample time for informal discussions, socializing, and networking. Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and early career scientists are particularly encouraged to attend and contribute to the meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you to Seattle in August: come to learn about exciting science related to plasmids and other mobile elements and to explore the beautiful city of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest! (Despite its reputation for rain and gray skies, August is a spectacular time to visit.)
