33rd European Cytoskeletal Forum Meeting on Biology and pathology of cytoskeleton: the crossroads of three cytoskeletal systems - Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) 2018 is organized by Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) and will be held during Sep 20 - 24, 2018 at Institute of Molecular Genetics of the ASCR, v.v.i., Prague, Czech Republic. Conference Description : The course will act as an interaction platform for researchers investigating different aspects of the cytoskeleton in health and disease. It is well known that the separate cytoskeletal elements function in complex processes as cell morphogenesis, intracellular transport, and cell motility, but it has become increasingly evident that their activities are intertwined as is their regulation. The course will focus on both fundamental scientific aspects of the regulation of cytoskeletal systems as well as on its medically relevant deregulations associated with disease conditions, including cancer metastasis. The main aim of this lecture course is to provide the participants an integrative overview of the regulation of cytoskeleton in complex cellular processes. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
18th International Nutrition & Diagnostics Conference (INDC) 2018 is organized by RADANAL Ltd and will be held during Sep 22 - 25, 2018 at Hotel DAP, Prague, Czech Republic. The target audience for this medical event is nutritionists, medical doctors, analytical chemists, biochemists, chemists, and those in the clinical diagnosis seeking new technologies and new approaches in the field of nutrition, food diseases, food components and health trends. The aim of this multidisciplinary conference is to bridge the gaps between the specialists and fields of science as diverse as nutrition, clinical biochemistry, food technology, analytical chemistry and medicine. INDC is a traditional meeting point for people who are interested in understanding how food influences our health, working performance, feelings and aging. There is a need for sensitive and reliable analytical methods which would help us to determine what bioactive chemical compounds are found in our food, as well as for trace analysis methods in complex biological matrices to follow the bioactive compounds and their metabolites in the human body. We need to understand how food technology alters the bioactive compounds and how human body metabolizes the chemical substances from food. It is evident that enormous progress has been made in instrumental analytical methods over the last thirty years. Today the main application and use of the techniques is analysis of biological samples: tissues, blood and urine. Many people are not able to adjust their eating habits based on sedentary lifestyle including working with computers, watching television, and driving a car. It seems that this easy way of life that the generations before us used to dream of is now damaging our health and possibly even having a worse effect on the younger generation. This presents a new challenge for scientists to develop analytical technologies that would allow us to understand our personal metabolism, feelings, physical and mental performance in connection with specific biomarkers, with the overall aim to personalize medicine as generalized recommendations have proven to be of limited value.

Safety and Selectivity in the Scale-Up of Chemical Reactions is organized by Scientific Update Ltd and will be held during Sep 27 - 28, 2018 at Clarion Hotel, Prague, Czech Republic. The target audience for this medical event is Any laboratory chemist involved in the scale-up to large scale equipment/kilo lab. Course Description : The safety of chemical processes is critical for the whole chemical industry. It is vital that process development chemists and engineers are able to identify aspects of the chemistry that may be hazardous or pose a risk to the safety of the process or equipment. In order to do this they need to know when to proactively engage colleagues or contractors to carry out process safety testing and hazard analysis, which in turn requires a knowledge of the equipment and test methods available. As chemical reactions are scaled up and operations become more economic the ability to remove heat from exothermic events becomes reduced and at the same time the outcome of any incident becomes much more severe. This is an almost unique course on the safety of chemical reactions and processes that is designed by chemists for chemists (and engineers) with the ultimate aim of helping the chemical industry reduce the number of chemical or process related incidents. Price: Course Fee: EUR 1780. Speakers: Dr Will Watson. Course Outline : The aim of the course is to give lab chemists an understanding of the issues that need to be considered during the early stages of scale up to large laboratory scale equipment (10-20 litre vessels) / kilo lab. The course will concentrate on chemical safety and selectivity issues and include information on what safety testing equipment is available and the uses and limitations of this equipment. Attendees will learn how to identify potential problems whether they be thermal hazards or selectivity issues. Methods used by other companies for handling hazardous reagents and reactions will be described as well as alternative chemistry to circumvent these reactions and/or reagents. Benefits of Attending: • Attendees will learn how to identify potentially unsafe chemical processes, particularly those that pose more a danger on scale • They will learn about what testing procedures are available to help them identify unsafe operating conditions to enable to talk knowledgably to in-house safety professionals or contract organizations • Sources of safety information in the literature and via the internet will be provided • The course provides lists of reagents and functional groups that should trigger safety testing studies • Methods used in other companies for handling hazardous reagents and reactions will be provided • Alternatives reagents or substitutes for hazardous materials will also be discussed • Recommendations will be provided for making the first sample of a product where there may be safety or stability concern Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
