4th DNA Repair/Replication Structures and Cancer Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will Conference is from Feb 16 - 20, 2020 at Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive, Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas. Course Description: The remarkable stability of the human genome is lost in cancer cells due to the failure of efficient and accurate repair in the context of oncogene-induced replication stress and elevated transcription. DNA replication is furthermore emerging as a surprisingly complex process requiring fork protection and restart, template-switching, R-loop resolution, gap-filling, and repair. Unresolved replication and repair intermediates signal apoptosis. Similar complexity is being elucidated for the intertwined roles of transcription with replication and repair proteins with physical and functional interactions being important for genome stability and its loss in cancer. Moreover, the synthetic lethality and essentiality resulting from replication-transcription-repair stresses suggest inhibitors as tools to examine pathway selection and damage outcomes and to design advanced therapeutics. Course Key Sessions: Sessions will include emerging results and breakthrough methods concerning: • Repair and replication complexes, structures and mechanisms. • RNA damage responses and actions in repair. • Mutational signatures, DNA repair, and cancer. • Intertwined interactions in transcription-replication-repair. • Damage signaling, pathway selection & cross-talk. • Targeting synthetic lethality and essentiality for damage responses. • Chromatin and chromosome instability. • Epigenetics, DNA damage and repair. • PARP, PARG, and metabolic signaling. • Mitochondrial replication/repair and damage signaling. • DNA repair, apoptosis and cancer. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Feb 20 - 23, 2020 | Nassau, New Providence

Feb 24 - 27, 2020 | USD $1935 | Nassau, New Providence
2nd Nuclear Receptors Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held from Feb 24 - 27, 2020 at Melia Nassau Beach Hotel, Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas. Target Audience: Scientists and Clinician Scientists at a range of levels from postdoctoral and up: Principal Investigators, Junior Team Leaders, Research Fellows. Ambitious postgraduate students in the field will also be encouraged to attend. Relevant specialties are wide-ranging, reflecting the importance of nuclear receptors in many aspects of health and disease. These include Endocrinology, Oncology, Paediatrics, Urology, Gynaecology, Obstetric Medicine, Neuroscience, Cardiology. Description: This meeting will address the new roles and novel crosstalk mechanisms that are emerging for many of the 48 human nuclear receptors, in health and disease. For example, it has long been known that the estrogen receptor drives progression of breast cancer, and patients with estrogen receptor-positive disease are treated using antiestrogens or aromatase inhibitors to inhibit estrogen signalling. Now however, it is apparent that the androgen receptor can in some cases drive breast cancer progression and is a therapeutic target, resulting in clinical trials for androgen receptor-targeting therapies in advanced breast cancer. The androgen receptor, itself long the main therapeutic target in prostate cancer, is emerging as a key player in metabolic disease, while conversely other nuclear receptor including the glucocorticoid receptor and several orphan nuclear receptors are implicated in prostate cancer progression. Meanwhile, given the impact of many nuclear receptors on the central nervous system, it is unsurprising that they are being explored in the context of neurological disorders and depression. Thus there is wide scope for re-purposing of licensed drugs and development of new NR-targeting therapies for a host of conditions and diseases. This unique meeting will bring together many of the leading figures in nuclear receptor research from across the globe, to discuss emerging roles and their implications for health and disease - and both human and drug development - in an intimate meeting that will generate meaningful idea exchange and interaction that will help to further shape this influential field. Key Sessions: • Further emerging roles for nuclear receptors in cancer • Structural insights into nuclear receptor function and crosstalk • Nuclear receptors’ role in epigenetic regulation and non coding RNA • Nuclear receptors and DNA damage • Nuclear receptors and cell cycle • Nuclear receptors in metabolism/metabolic disease • Nuclear receptors in the CNS Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Feb 26 - 29, 2020 | USD $1935 | Nassau, New Providence
3rd Bacterial Cell Biology Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held from Feb 26 - 29, 2020 at Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive, Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas. Target Audience: The conference should attract all of the major players in the bacterial cell biology field, of which there are probably 50 or so significant groups worldwide. It will also attract many microbiologists with a general interest in microbial cell function who would badge themselves as molecular biologists or microbial biochemists. The talks will cover a wide range of topics and PhDs, post-docs and group leaders will all benefit by being brought up to date with developments across the field. Course Description: This meeting is a continuation of the Zing Conferences Bacterial Cell Biology series. In the last two decades, there has been an explosion of interest in fundamental aspects of bacterial structure and function, based on advances in fluorescence and cryo-EM imaging. In the last few years, quantitative and automated methods have brought about radical changes in the breadth and depth of studies, leading to important mechanistic discoveries. Meanwhile, genome sequencing and genetic methods such as CRISPR-Cas9 and Tn-Seq have greatly expanded the range of organisms that can be studied incisively, enabling comparative studies of processes such as growth, morphogenesis, and division, across diverse bacterial phyla. The conference will bring together presentations illustrating the application of advanced cell and molecular biology methods to a wide range of basic functions in bacterial cells. Advances in the understanding of the fundamentals of bacterial structure and function also create opportunities for the development of novel approaches to kill or modulate the growth and behavior of bacterial cells. Specific sessions are likely to cover the following areas: • Cell morphogenesis • Cell division • Chromosome replication and segregation • Cell biology of transcription and translation • Advances in imaging • Diversity in bacterial structure and function • Bacterial communities and signaling • Bacterial chemical biology Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
