Carbohydrates Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Jun 22 - 23, 2019 at Regal Riverside Hotel, Sha Tin, Hong Kong, China. Conference Description: The Gordon Research Seminar on Carbohydrates is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. Carbohydrates represent an important class of biomolecules that influence a wide range of biological functions. Implications of carbohydrates in diseases have garnered great attention in recent times; however, incomplete elucidations of structure-to-function limit the ability to develop potent therapeutics. In order to address this limitation, a central platform for discussions and development of novel approaches through a multi-disciplinary effort is needed. The 2019 Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Carbohydrates is a forum dedicated exclusively to young scientists to establish network and career developments in the glycoscience community through oral presentations, a career panel, and poster presentations. The goal of the GRS on Carbohydrates is to integrate scientists from diverse backgrounds to drive innovation towards carbohydrate-based therapeutics. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Carbohydrates Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Jun 23 - 28, 2019 at Regal Riverside Hotel, Sha Tin, Hong Kong, China. Conference Description: The important roles of carbohydrates in human homeostasis, immunology, allergy, transplantation, microbial and viral infection, host-microbe interaction, cancer, etc. have been increasingly recognized. However, detailed information on how carbohydrates are involved in these important physiological and pathological events at the molecular level is still limited. Significant advances have been made in various areas of carbohydrate research to bridge the gap. The 2019 Carbohydrates Gordon Research Conference brings together experts and emerging investigators to present cutting-edge research progresses and to openly discuss ideas and future directions in the carbohydrate field. Major topics range from carbohydrate structures and glycomics to synthetic strategies, carbohydrate biosynthesis and degradation enzymes, carbohydrate-based prebiotics and therapeutics, glycoimmunology and chemical glycobiology, human and microbial glycomes, and carbohydrates in host-microbe interactions. The conference will feature 29-31 invited talks, 12-16 short talks selected from submitted abstracts, and 4 poster preview sessions. The conference provides a friendly environment for exchanging ideas, building scientific networks, establishing collaborations, starting new projects, and initiating new research directions. The on-site meeting, discussion, interaction, and leisure activities are especially useful for newcomers to get familiar with the major players in the field and to explore new ideas and directions in the interdisciplinary areas of carbohydrate research. The goal of the conference is to advance the field of carbohydrates which will greatly facilitate the improvement of human health. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Genome Architecture in Cell Fate and Disease Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Aug 04 - 09, 2019 at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Kowloon, Hong Kong, China. Course Description: The rules that dictate spatial and temporal organization of genomes are rapidly being elucidated through advances in the molecular manipulation of genomes, methods to measure proximity and dynamics in the cell nucleus, single-cell measurements, microscopic imaging, biophysical principles and computational modeling. This hierarchical organization can be viewed at many scales, all of which are dynamically altered to regulate transcription, replication, genome integrity and the changes in epigenetic states that define different cell types. Increasingly, we find evidence for causal linkages between alterations in 3D genome organization and disease. The 2019 conference on Genome Architecture in Cell Fate and Disease “The Eukaryotic Genome in 4 Dimensions: Integrative Approaches to Bridging Genotype and Phenotype” is the third meeting of its kind and will seek to promote interdisciplinary discussion of the most cutting-edge principles in this field, including the latest technologies and concepts, relationships to chromosome function including development, disease, genome integrity and epigenetic inheritance. Course Topics: • Emerging Technologies • New Concepts of Mechanisms for Chromatin Interactions • Chromatin Topology and Transcription • Chromatin Topology and Diseases • Dynamics of Chromatin Architecture • Genome Maintenance and Stability • Epigenetic Inheritance • Chromatin Organization During Differentiation and Development • Imaging Chromatin Architecture Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Cancer Stem Cells: Advances in Biology and Clinical Translation (T2) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Oct 13 - 17, 2019 at Lee Shau Kee Lecture Centre, Hong Kong, China. Course Description : Preponderant experimental and clinical evidence has demonstrated that pervasive cancer cell heterogeneity in both phenotypic presentations and functional properties exists, such that a population of cancer cells with cardinal stem cell properties (i.e., cancer stem cells) pre-exists in untreated tumors and spatiotemporally evolves during tumor progression and therapeutic interventions. Recent studies have also revealed significant phenotypic and functional plasticity in cancer cells, regulated by both genetic networks and epigenetic mechanisms. Both cancer cell heterogeneity and plasticity constitute major barriers to efficient and durable clinical treatments. Ever since the revival of the cancer stem cell research field around the turn of the century, we have made great strides in identifying and elucidating the biology of cancer stem cells in virtually all tumor systems. Significant progress has also been made in understanding how cancer stem cells interact with the cellular constituents and soluble factors in the proinflammatory and immune-suppressive tumor microenvironment. Facilitated by an explosion of technical advances in recent years, especially single-cell RNA-seq, we are achieving an unprecedented appreciation of the complexity of the cellular heterogeneity of human tumors. Significantly, novel therapeutic strategies that target cancer stem cells and cancer cell heterogeneity and plasticity are rapidly progressing to the clinical arena. This conference is organized to recapitulate these recent advances in our understanding of cancer stem cell biology and, importantly, the clinical translation of targeting cancer stem cells. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

International Organization For the Study of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IOIBD) is organized by International Organization For the Study of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IOIBD) and will be held from Mar 19 - 22, 2020 at Hong Kong, China. Description : The International Organization for the Study of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IOIBD) is the only international worldwide organization devoted to these chronic and sometimes disabling diseases involving different parts of the gastrointestinal tract. The mission of the IOIBD is to promote the health of people with IBD worldwide by setting the direction for patient care, education and research. This is in particular the case for those countries where the diseases are just evolving. Task forces of IOIBD promote scientific developments by designing non commercial clinical studies. Grants are provided for innovative start-up projects and large scale trials not receiving funds otherwise due to lack of economic or political interest. Travel grants are given to young scientists from countries with evolving IBD. The organization furthermore aims at developing clear definitions of the different manifestations of IBD as well as for the targets and endpoints of treatment in practice and research, in particular in clinical trials. The long-term goal of IOIBD is to contribute to the elucidation of the cause of these still relatively new diseases and finally to the development of a causal and curative treatment, thereby making its existence unnecessary. Mission Statement : To promote the health of people with IBD worldwide by setting the direction for patient care, education and research. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
