Level 2 - Basic Botulinum Toxin: Cosmetic Upper Face & Pain Management is organized by Pacific Training Institute for Facial Aesthetics (PTIFA) and will be held from Nov 22 - 23, 2019 at Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 24 Credits. Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 1 online (you may register for L1 and L2 at the same time) Overview: Successfully introduce botulinum toxin(aka Dysport®/Botox®) into your practice with PTIFA's proven clinical protocols. Learn how you can reduce the signs of aging by eliminating fine facial wrinkles and reduce myofascial pain (migraines/headaches/TMD). Level 2 is a comprehensive botulinum toxin course where you will learn the PTIFA Anatomic Landmark Template, the PTIFA Therapeutic & Cosmetic Injection Templates & Techniques, as well as all of the skills required to immediately and successfully integrate treatment into a dental or medical practice. Level 2 includes an online component (8hrs), plus a two-day hands-on session always held in Vancouver, BC. Online Didactic: The online portion of Level 2 includes the following six sections: • Glabella • Frontalis • Orbicularis Occuli • TMD • Migraines/Headaches • Parafunctional Habits The online portion of the Level 2 course reviews the glabella (in between the eyes), frontalis (forehead lines) and crows feet (beside the eyes). allows practitioners to develop a deep understanding of what botulinum toxin is, how and why it affects facial muscles, as well as how to direct botulinum toxin to purposely achieve aesthetic facial improvements in the upper face. Practitioners will also learn how botulinum toxin is used therapeutically to treat parafunctional habits, TMD, temporal headaches, migraines and oromandibular dystonias. We will address the topic of prevention/interception and review the musculature of the face and neck. Analysis of muscle recruitment will assist us in determining the cause of the many wrinkle presentations and expressions. A review of the aging process will determine the exact location of placement and number of units of botulinum toxin. The analysis and differential diagnosis of parafunctional habits, TMD and headache will utilize EMG duotrodes. Course Topics : • Frontalis Muscle • Glabellar Complex • Procerus • Corrugators Supercilii • Orbicularis Oculi • Research Articles Supporting Therapy • Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Mechanism of Action • Preparation, Dosage, and Procedure • Practical Pearls Conference Objectives : • Understand how to inject botulinum toxin (aka Botox/Dysport) to achieve predictable cosmetic results in the upper face. • Understand how to inject botulinum toxin (aka Botox/Dysport) to achieve predictable therapeutic results for pain management (migraines/headaches/TMD/bruxism). • Gain extensive hands-on experience integration/clinical applications marking each other after precise anatomical landmark identification on the skull and cadaver. • Develop a deep understanding of how to improve patient care with botulinum toxin – both therapeutically and cosmetically.

Tissue Organoids as Models of Host Physiology and Pathophysiology of Disease (J1) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Jan 19 - 23, 2020 at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Description Tissue organoids are becoming an increasingly sophisticated experimental system that is of importance in investigative work nearly every organ system. There has been a recent explosion of techniques and platforms that enable dissection of fundamental questions, modeling cellular alterations in disease states and screening of compounds and molecules to discover new pathways. Fundamental work into their properties has developed their potential to become new methods for diagnosis, therapy selection and even therapy themselves. A meeting that will bring together experts in various tissue organoids will create valuable cross-fertilization of ideas and approaches that will benefit many fields. A major gap is that this technology is being silo-ed in areas of specific tissues and molecular pathways. A general meeting that cuts across all organs and major utilities will be of high value and this will encourage groups to share ideas across fields. We will also include engineering approaches that will highlight novel developments in organoid technology. We expect that attendees after attending this meeting will have a much better understanding of the capabilities of their organoid systems and see new avenues for exploration. This is a meeting that will emphasize synthesis over reductionism. Our lofty goals include helping investigators make the connection to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic tools using organoids. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
