3rd Exploring DNA Repair Pathways as Targets for Cancer Therapy Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held during Feb 23 - 26, 2019 at Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive, Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas. Conference Description : Defect in DNA damage repair and checkpoint control is the underlying mechanism for tumorigenesis, since it allows the accumulation of multiple genetic alternations, which are essential for the initiation of tumorigenesis. This has been clearly illustrated to be the cause of several human cancer-prone syndromes and also revealed by recent human genome studies. On the other hand, defective DNA repair and checkpoint activation also make cancer cells more vulnerable for particular DNA damaging agents or inhibitors that specifically disrupt some of these checkpoint pathways. With the increasing understanding of defects in DNA repair and checkpoint control in tumorigenesis, there are extensive interests in exploring these deficiencies, especially taking advantage of the synthetic lethality concept and targeting particular DNA repair and checkpoint pathways for cancer therapy. The purpose of this conference is to bring together basic, translational and clinical investigators and discuss the current and future directions, opportunities and obstacles in the development of these anti-cancer modalities and how to best apply these concepts in clinical practice. Key Sessions : • Highlight recent advances in the field of DNA damage repair. • Identify novel targets in DNA repair and checkpoint pathways. • Explore the concept of synthetic lethality for cancer treatment. • Assess the therapeutic potential of new anti-cancer modalities. • Learn mechanisms of therapeutic resistance and ways to improve cancer therapy. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Mitochondria: From Basic Biology to Mechanisms of Disease Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held from Feb 27 - Mar 02, 2019 at Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive, Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas. Target Audience : • Basic scientists studying mechanisms of mitochondrial and cell biology. • Clinicians and translational biologists interested in mitochondrial disease. • Neuroscientists studying mitochondrial function and role of mitochondria in neurodegenerative disease. • Scientists studying processes where mitochondria are important (metabolism, aging, cancer, heart function, etc.) Conference Description : Mitochondria act at the interface of numerous processes critical for cellular function and organismal health. Long recognized as the powerhouses of the cell, recent years have seen a growing appreciation for the diverse roles that mitochondria play not only in energy production and metabolism, but also in maintenance of redox balance, regulation of gene expression, ion homeostasis, and control of cell fate. Mitochondrial maintenance is critical for proper function of cells and tissues, and mitochondrial dysfunction underlies numerous disease processes ranging from severe childhood mitochondrial disorders, to heart disease, neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, and aging itself. This conference will bring together scientists and clinicians with expertise in a breadth of mitochondrial biology to explore topics at the interface of basic and translational biology. Mitochondrial basic mechanisms of organelle regulation, mitochondrial mechanisms of disease, cutting edge technologies, and interventional strategies will be emphasized. Conference Objectives are : • Basic mechanisms and regulation of mitochondrial biology. • Discuss crosstalk and integration of mitochondrial pathways with other cellular compartments and cell signalling. • Learn about how these pathways of mitochondrial dysfunction contribute to diseases. • Discuss therapies targeting mitochondria in human diseases. • Discuss future directions for mitochondrial research.

As a result, radiologists in most major health care centers as well as in private practice have been asked to provide after-hours, 'final' interpretations. This course is specially designed for general and sub-specialized radiologists who are working these non-traditional schedules, including rotating after hours shift work, have dedicated evening and overnight radiology shifts, and take call on weekends. Radiologists on call after hours are often required to interpret studies in areas which are different from their weekday routine. This program will review commonly seen disorders in all the key areas of the body to assist you the next time you are covering a shift outside of your comfort zone. The discussion will focus on pitfalls you want to avoid and how to search for subtle findings. Over four days, faculty will provide participants with practical information to enhance image acquisition and interpretation skills and identify the best modality for a given clinical presentation. Selected topics within neuroradiology, head and neck imaging, abdominal imaging, musculoskeletal radiology, chest and pediatric radiology will be covered. Daily case conferences and the opportunity to earn SAM credits are included. Conference Objectives are : • Rapidly determine the appropriate imaging study to perform in the acute setting • Identify common and uncommon clinical conditions encountered in the after-hours setting • Select the correct imaging protocol particularly for pediatric emergencies to optimize diagnostic accuracy and minimize radiation • Explain how to handle incidental findings and make appropriate management recommendations
