Clinical Certainty Through Functional Assessment is organized by International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and will be held from Feb 08 - 09, 2020 at Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The target audience for this medical event is open to chiropractors and students: 5th quarter/4th trimester or higher. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12 hours of continuing education credits. Course Description: This course will incorporate hands on and practical experience necessary to perform a thorough exam for an infant. We will cover the first encounter with the infant and parent(s), examination procedures and communication of the findings. We will discuss the importance of the primitive reflexes that are present initially from birth to one year, how they correlate to milestones, nervous system and brain development. Then, we will look at the examination for an older child with a neurodevelopmental delay. For the older child, we will look at what results when the primitive reflexes are retained, the necessity of chiropractic care to assist with their inhibition and how correcting subluxations helps to restore brain balance. Course Goal: You will master how to perform a thorough examination and you will know how to communicate the results in a way that is meaningful to the parents. Certainty comes from having the technical skills first and then the ability to be able to communicate findings so that the parents engage their child in care. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Feb 08 - 12, 2020 | USD $1145 | Banff, Alberta
Emerging Cellular Therapies: Cancer and Beyond (Q1) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 08 - 12, 2020 at Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Description: After many years of fundamental research, cell-based therapies are now recognized as effective medicines for treatment of a specific subset of cancers as well as a growing list of autoimmune, degenerative and infectious diseases. This clinical progress has been propelled by exponential growth in understanding of the underlying cell biology, and increasingly sophisticated techniques for genetic engineering and for using synthetic biology to control cellular therapeutics. Cellular therapeutics are now poised for increasing impact both in cancer medicine and in the treatment of genetic, autoimmune and degenerative diseases. This conference will bring together fundamental researchers and translational scientists to discuss recent successes and highlight challenges across the spectrum of emerging cellular therapeutics. Another innovative aspect of this conference is the joint pairing with the Keystone Symposia conference on “Engineering the Genome” organized by Drs. Vic Myer and Erik Sontheimer. This unique pairing will provide an outstanding opportunity to cross-fertilize ideas and to facilitate formation of new collaborations between experts in genome engineering and experts in cell biology, cell-based therapies and synthetic biology. The conference will provide an opportunity to report emerging preclinical and clinical insights, present novel platforms, and highlight challenges related to both safety and efficacy of cell therapies. The broad disease focus will enhance collaborations between the cancer immunotherapy communities and those focused on developing cell therapies for non-malignant disease. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Engineering the Genome (Q2) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 08 - 12, 2020 at Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Description Genome editing is already transforming biological science and promises to do the same for human medicine. Technological capabilities are advancing rapidly and there are expected to be more than 30 genome editing therapies in clinical development by 2020. It is therefore important that practitioners in both academia and industry have the opportunity to learn about the latest improvements and applications. This conference will bridge that gap and provide an ideal environment for scientific exchange. In addition, participants will be educated on the growing roster and utility of genome engineering platforms. There will be sessions on genome editing’s clinical advancements and the evolution of thinking in the field regarding translational sciences. This meeting is being paired with Emerging Cellular Therapies so that participants can come together with researchers who focus on cell-based therapies. Therefore, we anticipate attendees will have a greater awareness of the full range of genome engineering tools, both established and emerging and knowledge of best practices and pitfalls in clinical advancement. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
