RNA Editing Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Mar 24 - 29, 2019 at Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort & Spa, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy. Course Description: The GRC on RNA Editing is the only international meeting dedicated to nucleic acid modifications. The 2019 meeting is subtitled "Next-generation epitranscriptomics in health and disease". RNA and DNA modifications are programmed in nearly all organisms and influence many fundamental processes including gene expression, protein expression, metabolism, epigenetics, cognition, innate and adaptive immunity, autoimmune disease, viral infection and cancer. While different enzymes and molecular machines are responsible for generating the large repertoire of editing and modification events present in individual cells, tissues, organisms and disease states, there are many conceptual and mechanistic similarities and researchers investigating these diverse processes have benefited immensely from the theoretical and technical advances of complementary areas. Thus, the GRC on RNA Editing fosters the ever-increasing need to exchange ideas among researchers who are at the forefront of these exciting, fast-moving and diverse fields with the goal of continuing to promote a deeper understanding of the molecular mechanisms as well as the physiological functions and pathological processes governed by nucleic acid editing and modification events. The 2019 Gordon Research Conference on RNA Editing will be the eleventh in a biennial series that began in 1997, opening a new chapter of the rapidly growing field. There will be over 50 oral and 100 poster presentations representing most areas of RNA and DNA editing and modification. The program will have nine sessions, which will be organized to bring together experts and trainees working on different systems with common areas of interest. Presentations will be from scientists at all stages of their careers, including many investigators new to this field and a number selected from submitted abstracts. In addition, the program will include four poster sessions at which all participants are encouraged to present and discuss results. As is our tradition, we will strive to provide a gender-balanced and an ethnically and geographically diverse meeting that allows investigators to present novel findings and new approaches, while also providing a collegial opportunity for all participants to interact, which will lead to new insights and a deeper understanding of editing and modification mechanisms. Course Sessions: • Cross-Talks in RNA and DNA Modifications • Toolboxes: Technology and Detection Methods • Pattern Recognition: "Self" Versus "Non-Self" • Regulatory Mechanisms and Control • Macromolecular Machines: Complexity of RNA Modification/Editing Systems • Defects in the Epitranscriptome: Implications in Disease • RNA Epigenetics • Structure and Function of RNA Editing and Modification Complexes • Making Sense of Diversity in Light of Evolution Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

EHA Pediatric Course 2019 is organized by European Hematology Association (EHA) and will be held from Apr 03 - 06, 2019 at Grand Hotel Riviera, Sorrento, Campania, Italy. Course Description: Pediatric Hemato-Oncology is a very specialized branch of hematology. It is one of the paradigm hematology sub-specialties for consideration at a European level since there are too few specialists and trainees to organize training on a national level within each individual country. Seeing the importance of continuing education in this field, there have been 8 EHA-affiliated Pediatric Hemato-Oncology courses produced since 2003. It is the only program of such nature available in Europe and the same course organizers hope to continue with it in 2019. The course philosophy of the EHA Pediatric Course 2019 is to solve real clinical cases linking basic science to the clinic. The course organizers aim to create a friendly and informal atmosphere to encourage exchange of scientific ideas for ongoing and future projects. Topics: • Leukemia (ALL, AML, MDS) • Bone marrow failure and immunodeficiency • Haemopoietic stem cell transplantation • Consultative pediatric hematology • Red cell disorders Seminars on selected topics: • Inherited bone marrow failure syndromes as predisposition to MDS and Leukaemia • Lessons from leukemia models for therapy resistance and cell death induction • Gene therapy Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
EUDD 2019 - Frequently Asked Gastroenterology Questions in Primary Care. The European General Practitioners' Experiences
Apr 05 - 06, 2019 | | Free | Rome, Lazio
EUDD 2019 - Frequently Asked Gastroenterology Questions in Primary Care. The European General Practitioners' Experiences is organized by Italian Society of Gastroenterology and Digestive Endoscopy / Societa Italiana di Gastroenterologia ed Endoscopia Digestiva (SIGE) and will be held from Apr 05 - 06, 2019 at Hotel Ripa, Rome, Lazio, Italy. Scientific Rationale: The increasing epidemic of gastrointestinal diseases represents an onerous burden both for health and economy. Moreover, not only gastrointestinal diseases are increasing in evidence, but also the number of young people affected by these disorders (i.e. gastroesophageal reflux disease, H.pylori infection, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticular disease) is growing. The clinical management of these diseases appears to be, therefore, of utmost importance. It involves different approaches including dietary and lifestyle changes, adequate screening exams, diagnostic tests, therapeutic strategy. These topics are an object of many questions that will be addressed by European general practitioners and expert gastroenterologists through the presentation of a clinical case raising clinical questions, always following an evidence-based approach. Interactivity by the interactive profile of lectures, small number of participants (max.50), adequate time for voting and discussion (at least 45’) after clinical case. This educational event is extremely useful for physicians involved into gastrointestinal disorders, especially the young ones, as it offers an inclusive and up-to-date scenario of the management of the most frequent gastrointestinal diseases, presenting the best evidence-based insights of this topic. Educational needs 1. Determine the nature and extent of knowledge gaps in the care of patients with the most common digestive diseases 2. Address diagnostic and treatment guidelines 3. Enhance clinical performance in digestive disease care processes. Expected educational outcome After the course, learners should be able to: 1. Assess their own strengths and weaknesses in digestive disease management 2. Identify digestive diseases diagnostic algorithms and solving strategies 3. Adjust their future clinical performance in light of their self-assessments. Educational objectives • Gain an understanding of the prescription appropriateness of PPI in gastrointestinal diseases • Become familiar with up to date therapeutic management of Helicobacter pylori infection • Develop an understanding of the diagnostic tools in the diagnosis of IBS • Refine the knowledge and fill in the gap in the management of diverticular disease bleeding. Methods to promote active learning • The balance between presentations and discussions is envisaged with voting by the audience during the debates which are planned for each session • quality of discussion and interaction is enhanced thanks to smaller groups for discussions.
