11th International Conference on Complement Therapeutics is organized by Aegean Conferences and will be held during Jun 23 - 28, 2018 at Avra Imperial, Chania, Crete, Greece. Conference Description : The field of complement-targeted drug discovery has experienced an profound transformation during the past decade. With the first complement-specific drugs on the market, clinical experience is gained and novel indications are being explored. At the same time, efforts in both academic and pharmaceutical research have produced new innovative therapeutic concept that interfere at different levels of the complement cascade; many of these candidates are currently undergoing clinical evaluation. Finally, genetic and molecular studies continue to reveal contributions of complement in both orphan and highly prevalent diseases. Apart from offering new hope for patients suffering from such diseases, the study of complement pathways, mutations, and deficiencies also teaches us important lessons about the role of complement in health and disease and allows us to refine our models and tools for applied and basic research. This conference aims to bring together academic and industry scientists and clinical development experts who are focused on contemporary and emerging aspects of complement-mediated disease pathogenesis and the development of therapeutics that modulate this system in a beneficial manner. Conference Topics : • Molecular mechanisms and targets in complement-related diseases. • Novel inhibitors & pipeline compounds. • Hematological disorders. • Organ & cell transplantation. • I/R injury and chronic rejection. • Kidney diseases. • Neurological & ocular diseases. • Acute and chronic inflammatory disorders. • Infectious diseases & sepsis. • Cancer. • Informative complement biomarkers in therapeutic development. • Novel and unexpected indications. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Nuclear receptors and biological networks is organized by European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and will be held from Sep 11- 15, 2018 at Avra Imperial, Chania, Crete, Greece. Conference Description : Nuclear receptors (NRs) constitute a unique group of transcription factors that play an important role in a wide variety of developmental, physiological and pathological processes and have become important drug targets in many diseases. These receptors regulate transcription in response to small lipophilic biomolecules such as hormones, lipid metabolites, bile acids, heme and xenobiotic compounds thereby functioning as key mediators linking metabolism and external signals to transcriptional regulation. The ability to directly regulate NRs by small molecules makes these transcription factors ideal targets for disease management as well as for mechanistic and system-wide studies of transcription. This workshop on Nuclear Receptors and Biological Networks continues the very successful EMBO NR conference series. The overall objective of this meeting series is to ensure a European meeting point for current and up-and-coming scientists in the broader field of NRs. The specific objective for the 2018 meeting is to highlight the importance of novel systems approaches for the study of NR functions and to emphasize how NRs constitute excellent tools in systems biology. To facilitate this cross-fertilization of fields, we have invited outstanding speakers with different scientific interests in the NR field as well as world-leading experts in systems approaches. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
1st International Conference on Precision Nutrition and Metabolism in Public Health and Medicine is organized by Aegean Conferences and will be held during Sep 21 - 26, 2018 at Avra Imperial, Chania, Crete, Greece. Conference Description: This Conference brings together experts in nutrition, metabolomics, systems biology, and computer science who otherwise would not interact to advance our fundamental understanding of biological networks, their dynamics, changes with age and interactions with nutrients. Importantly, this meeting will also encourage future research to identify next generation biomarkers for assessment of nutrient needs in health and disease. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
