Nov 12, 2019 | CME 30.00 | AUD $1,100 | Gold coast, Queensland
Ultrasound in Trauma (Including E-FAST and LUNG) - 1 Day Course is organized by Australian Institute of Ultrasound (AIU) and will be held on Nov 12, 2019 at Australian Institute of Ultrasound, Gold coast, Queensland, Australia. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 30 Credits. Description:- Extended Focussed Abdominal Scanning in Trauma (E-FAST) was the flagship of bedside ultrasound. Nowadays sending the unstable trauma patient straight to theatre is not an everyday occurrence; and, E-FAST scanning remains one of the most useful point of care ultrasound techniques, for reasons other than those proposed by its inventors. E-FAST can risk stratify the patient with an ectopic pregnancy, identify ascites, guide paracentesis, but most importantly – familiarises novices with the ‘windows’ of the abdomen. No prior experience is required for this module. After a machine familiarisation session and sonoanatomy lesson, you will be taught how to acquire a set of scans that adequately rule out free fluid in the abdominal cavity, pleural effusion, pericardial effusion and pneumothorax. Through the day you will practice the skill on different patients. You will learn about false positives and false negatives. By the end of the day, you should be able to scan, label, save and interpret a set of scans that support your clinical decision. You are not expected to become an expert in a day. However, this one day-course is all about learning what you don’t know, what you need to know, and what you need to practice safely. And, when you return, we will build on your competency with the next layer of optimisation and interpretation, with eventual integration into multisystem protocols answering clinical questions. Course Content:- Extended Focussed Abdominal Scanning in Trauma (EFAST) Course Objectives:- At the end of this course the attendees should be able to: • Identify the parameters of safe application of ultrasound and its limitations in medical diagnosis • Identify the physical principles, artefacts and the steps for image optimisation while performing ultrasound. • Practice “hands on” ultrasound scanning skills required to maximise diagnostic ability in answering relevant clinical questions • Recognise the sonographic appearances of normal and abnormal structures required to answer common clinical questions • Perform E-FAST ultrasound techniques • Acquire images obtained on normal adult volunteers & phantoms • Interpret images from normal adult volunteers • Recognise the variants and abnormalities from presentations and case-based learning. • Document the ultrasound findings • Equip the learner with the foundation skills to begin to incorporate the ultrasound skills with the clinical situation to make appropriate management decisions Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Nov 12, 2019 | USD $260 | New York City, New York
Next Generation Organoids for Biomedical Research and Drug Discovery is organized by The New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS) and will be held on Nov 12, 2019 at The New York Academy of Sciences, New York City, New York, Uniyed States of America. Course Description: Recent advances in 3D culture technology have allowed embryonic and adult mammalian stem cells to exhibit their remarkable self-organizing properties, with the resulting organoids reflecting key structural and functional properties of organs - including kidney, lung, gut, brain and retina. By mimicking the microstructures and biological functions of target organs, organoids complement or improve upon current multiscaled drug-testing platforms including in vitro molecular assays, cell platforms, and in vivo models, and modelling human organ development and various pathologies “in a dish.’’ The technology is currently being extended to develop multi-organ models that enable precise control of multicellular activities, extracellular matrix (ECM) compositions, spatial distributions of cells, architectural organizations of ECM, and environmental cues. These engineered human organs are a remarkable tool with the potential to facilitate studies that better predict drug efficacy and thereby reduce cost, time, and failure rates in clinical trials. Further, patient-derived organoids hold promise for personalized medicine, as they have the potential to produce individualized predictions of drug response. This symposium will feature discussions on the science behind organoid models, along with their many applications in health and disease. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Bioinformatics Strategy Meeting East Coast USA 2019 is organized by Proventa International and will be held on Nov 12, 2019 at Le Meridien Boston Cambridge, Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States of America. Course Description: Redefining the way global business leaders build meaningful partnerships, Proventa International’s Bioinformatics Strategy Meeting aims to offer more value than typical bioinformatics conferences. Exclusive to primary decision makers of top and emerging biotech, pharma and IT companies, our strategy meeting guarantees that you meet and engage with c-level directors only. While bioinformatics summits can provide brand awareness by putting you in front of a huge audience, you may find that opportunities to share your experience or ideas are quite limited. In our Bioinformatics Strategy Meeting, we focus on in-depth exploration of bioinformatics trends and topics that matter to you. Through our executive roundtable discussions, delegates with shared key challenges are grouped together to discuss topics like data management/analytics, next-generation sequencing, artificial intelligence and more. These intimate 60-minute sessions scheduled throughout the day allow everyone to raise relevant questions or contribute insightful experiences. If you have been attending bioinformatics conferences, you may be aware that, with the varied levels of experience and seniority of other attendees, it may be difficult to find someone you can consult with about your strategic priorities. Not with the Bioinformatics Strategy Meeting. Our pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings connect you with a subject matter expert who will work with you to help achieve short to long-term goals. Need guidance on optimizing processes in computational biology? With our vast network of medical informatics experts here in California and around the globe, you can be sure to meet the right match! Business leaders who will benefit from attending include CXOs, EVPs, SVPs, VPs, Executive Directors, Directors and Global Heads responsible for: • R&D Information Technology • Computational Biology/Sciences • Cloud Computing • Next-Gen Sequencing Informatics • Clinical Research • Translational Informatics • Clinical Genomics • Data & Storage Management • Data Computing • Data Visualization & Exploration Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
