Office Orthopedics and Sports Medicine for Primary Care is organized by MCE Conferences and will be held from Feb 15 - 17, 2019 at Fairmont Chateau Whistler, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. The target audience for this medical event is Family Physicians, all Physicians and other Healthcare Professionals seeking clinical information about Office Orthopedics and Sports Medicine for Primary Care. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Conference Description : Office Orthopedics and Sports Medicine for Primary Care addresses many orthopedic and sports medicine concerns that are commonly seen in primary care. The program was developed to be interactive, informative, evidence-based, and entertaining. In the knee and shoulder workshops, there will be key elements to demonstrate physical exam tests to narrow the differentials diagnosis for knee and shoulder pain. Osteoarthritis is a common condition seen in primary care, but there are numerous treatments options many primary care physicians can use to help their patients. Overuse injuries in children differ from adults, so a case-based approach will be used to review many common conditions. Since public attention about concussions is growing, primary physicians need to be familiar with the latest recommendations. In primary care, exercise is often recommended, but indications and techniques will be reviewed to increase effectiveness in counseling patients. Successful completion of this interactive program should increase confidence in diagnostic skills; prescribing the most accurate and effective course of treatment and follow up care, for improved patient outcomes. Conference Topics and Objectives : • Approach to the Musculoskeletal Patient: A Case-Based Overview • The Pre-Participation Physical: An Evidence Based Approach with Case Studies • Evaluation of the Painful Hip • A Primary Care Approach to Low Back Pain • Treating the Troublesome Tendon: New Thoughts on "Tendonitis" and Overuse Injuries • Joint and Soft Tissue Injections • Concussions Update • The Pain of Aging: Osteoarthritis • Shoulder Examination Workshop • Knee Examination Workshop • Pediatric Sports Medicine Cases • Hip Pain Pointers

RNA-Protein Interactions (X1) is organized by Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and will be held from Feb 24 - 28, 2019 at Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Course Description : Recent evidence suggests that the human genome encodes ~1500 RNA binding proteins (RBPs), and this number may further increase by identifying additional RBPs that do not contain canonical RNA binding motifs. These proteins control gene expression at transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels in development and disease. As mutations in many RBPs have been linked to human diseases, various RBPs and their regulated events may be potential drug targets. This conference will address some long-standing problems as well as emerging paradigms in this field. In particular, it will bring together leaders in RNA research to: 1) Brainstorm around novel concepts; 2) Sare new technology developments; and 3) Explore new disease mechanisms. The conference will be highly mechanismoriented, rather than centering on a specific biological process or disease theme, which will bring together scientists across multiple fields. Since individual regulatory RNAs must enlist specific RBPs to execute their biological functions, coupling the conference with another on “Long Noncoding RNAs: From Molecular Mechanism to Functional Genetics” will thus present a cohesive theme focused on RNA biology and medicine. Plenary Session Topics: • Functional RNA Elements in Mammalian Genomes (Joint) • RNP in Phase Transition • Coding and Noncoding RNAs on Chromatin (Joint) • Dissecting RNP Functions in vivo • RNA Transport and Localization • Structure and Function of RBPs • RNP Machines and Regulation • RNA and RBP in Disease (Joint) plus two workshops Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Long Non-Coding RNAs: From Molecular Mechanism to Functional Genetics (X2) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 24 - 28, 2019 at Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Course Description : Although emerging evidence points to the critical importance of the long noncoding transcriptome in human physiology and pathology, the clinical potential of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) as therapeutic and prognostic targets remain largely unexplored. The increasing availability of high-throughput technologies and newly developed computational methodologies is rapidly making it possible to address this gap in our knowledge. However, optimal use of these new capabilities and recognition of their power in transforming the field of lncRNA research requires the formation of new collaborative and training efforts. This conference specifically aims to: • Communicate the latest available technologies and developing methodologies for lncRNA functional genetics to the lncRNA community. • Promote collaborations and new research directions that will bridge the already thriving lncRNA mechanistic and basic research to the clinical need for novel, effective diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic targets. • Contribute to attracting the attention of biotech and pharmaceutical industry and clinically-oriented funding agencies to the lncRNA field. • Integrate lncRNA research into other biological fields through the joint pairing with the conference on “RNA-Protein Interactions. Session Topics: • Functional RNA Elements in Mammalian Genomes (Joint) • lncRNAs, Transposons and Evolution of the Genome • Coding and Noncoding RNAs on Chromatin (Joint) • Regulation of Differentiation and Development by lncRNAs • lncRNAs in Disease: Tools for Discovery • Novel Insights into Functional Mechanism of lncRNAs • lncRNAs: Diversity in Form and Function • RNA and RBP in Disease (Joint) plus two workshops Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Diabetes: Innovations, Outcomes and Personalized Therapies (X3) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Mar 03 - 07, 2019 at Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Course Description : Diabetes remains a public health challenge of epidemic proportions. Modern treatment algorithms are evolving to recommend higher focus on personalized approaches to diabetes care. However, as diabetes remains a disease characterized by excess elevation of a plasma biomarker, glucose, further refinement of our understanding of the disease and its comorbidities is required to provide optimal guidance for precision medicine. Advancement of research technologies and the ability to handle large data sets have enabled systems biology approaches to unravel different etiologies and pathophysiological consequences of diabetes. Future diabetes discovery efforts will focus on pairing knowledge about genetic risk and environmental triggers of diabetes associated pathologies. Using deep phenome characterization and molecular network analyses diabetes researchers will be able to launch modern translational approaches to diabetes care innovation. The objectives of the conference are to provide directional guidance for future pressure points of diabetes care and put emphasis on specific diabetes complications representing particular unmet needs. Further, forefront discoveries of genetic risk determinants and their molecular mechanisms will be presented together with lively debates about the translatability of such insights to novel curative therapies. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Unraveling the Secrets of Kidney Disease (X4) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Mar 03 - 07, 2019 at Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Course Description : Close to 1 in 11 people in the world suffers from kidney disease. The incidence of kidney disease is increasing especially in the developing world. This issue was recently reviewed and emphasized in a Lancet article (Global Health Atlas). Acute and chronic kidney disease is associated with a highly significant increase in cardiovascular death. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) represents a leading cause of death in the United States. There is no cure for this disease, with current treatment strategies relying on blood pressure control through blockade of the renin-angiotensin system. Such approaches only delay the development of end-stage kidney disease and can be associated with serious side effects. Recent identification of several novel mechanisms contributing to CKD development - including vascular changes, loss of podocytes and renal epithelial cells, matrix deposition, inflammation and metabolic dysregulation - has revealed new potential therapeutic approaches for CKD. This meeting will review clinical and observational studies in the kidney disease area, highlight recent advances in basic biology of kidney and kidney disease, assesses emerging strategies and agents for CKD treatment, and discuss major obstacles in drug development. This meeting will also encourage collaborations among clinicians and researchers from academic institutes and pharmaceutical laboratories and accelerate innovation in this field. There has not been a meeting in the area in kidney disease that would bring together clinicians, basic scientists and industry and foster collaboration. Small focus meetings have been organized by the International Society of Nephrology, but these meetings are limited to a single special topic. Furthermore more than half of kidney disease is caused by diabetes, this meeting will have the opportunity to understand diabetes and its complications development. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
