Conference Overview: With so many new and promising strategies and recent developments, the opportunities to produce and enable high-impact cancer research are unprecedented. Recent advances continue to expand and reshape our views of the essential features of cancer. We are learning important new aspects of how cancers develop, how to find and diagnose cancers earlier, how to design and unleash powerful new anti-cancer therapies, and how to evaluate cancer risk and even prevent tumors from arising. These advances are delivering useful, productive changes that lead to better cancer outcomes. High-Impact Cancer Research is the acclaimed Harvard Medical School postgraduate certificate program for cancer research. It teaches the principles and skills shaping today’s most important cancer research activities. High-Impact Cancer Research faculty are distinguished leading experts who have achieved breakthroughs in fields from discovery biology to therapeutics and prevention. In this special program, world leaders in cancer research share their insights and teach this changing science. Participants learn the new fundamentals of a wide spectrum of cancer science and the skills necessary to envision, design, and lead cutting-edge cancer research projects that can contribute to these changes. What are the objectives of the High-Impact Cancer Research Program? Conference Objectives: This program is intended to help participants make high-impact contributions that manage to better cancer outcomes. Upon completion of the program, participants will be able to: • Explain the molecular and cellular basis of cancer development, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention • Read about important advances within the context of clinical presentation of various human tumors and ways it is currently being used to develop the growing set of therapeutic and preventive approaches to fighting cancer • Discover about distinct cancer treatments from the individuals who developed the therapies and are testing them in ongoing clinical trials • Hone skills necessary to identify and answer key questions needed to make future contributions and to effectively communicate your ideas and conclusions • Earn critical skills to interpret and assess emerging cancer research • Envision and design cancer research projects • Improve writing skills for personal career advancement (e.g., grant applications or funding requests; the science section of a business plan designed to highlight a particular commercial opportunity; papers suitable for submission and publication) • Form an international network of colleagues and work effectively with international peers Curriculum Highlights This program allows participants to learn directly from Harvard’s leading faculty in discovery biology and clinical tumor development, and from internationally recognized leaders in the cancer research community who have achieved breakthroughs in therapeutics, risk assessment, and prevention. Peer-to-peer learning projects allow participants to learn from one another while producing publication-quality reports on important aspects of cancer research. This also allows each participant to develop a large network of international colleagues who will be resources throughout their career.

46. Jahrestagung der Gesellschaft für Neuropädiatrie / 46th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuropaediatrics
Oct 29 - 31, 2020 | USD $440.00 | Dornbirn, Vorarlberg
On behalf of the Society for Neuropediatrics, we would like to inform you today that the 46th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuropediatrics and 17th Training Academy as well as the associated general assembly unfortunately have to be postponed to 2021. Dear colleagues, We are very pleased to invite you to the 46th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuropaediatrics from 29-31 October 2020 in the Austrian city of Dornbirn in the westernmost Austrian province of Vorarlberg. With 49,563 inhabitants, Dornbirn is the most populous municipality in Vorarlberg and the tenth largest city in Austria. The importance of the town developed late at the end of the 19th century with the flourishing of the textile industry, which quickly made Dornbirn the largest municipality between the Alpine Rhine and Arlberg. It is thus both an economic centre of Vorarlberg and a regional traffic junction. Dornbirn lies at an altitude of 437 metres in the Rhine Valley at the foot of the Bregenzerwald Mountains and thus on the western edge of the Eastern Alps. Dornbirn is easy to reach from Friedrichshafen, Innsbruck or St. Gallen Altenrhein airport. In addition to the central topic of "Neuropaediatrics and interfaces in everyday life", the following main topics invite discussion and intensive scientific exchange: epilepsy, neurometabolic disorders, neonatal neurology, social paediatrics and new therapy options. Other important topics of this year's conference are the current status of neuromuscular diseases and their new therapeutic approaches and the development of guidelines for the treatment of paediatric strokes. In addition, a large number of satellite symposia on important topics in neuropaediatrics will again take place, thanks to the support of industry. Of course, we would like to support the young neuropaediatricians with our own session. The scientific discussion during the congress will be stimulated by free lectures and posters, and a video session will again be filled with submitted contributions. Traditionally, the "Science Prize of the Society for Neuropaediatrics" and the "Honorary Prize of the GNP/Honorary Award" for special services to neuropaediatrics will be awarded during the conference. On Friday evening we would like to invite you to a social evening. The excellent program of the training academy is integrated into the scientific conference. As every year, it is conducted by selected experts in the field of children's neurology. We are very much looking forward to your coming to Dornbirn and hope that in addition to the very dense congress programme, you will also have the opportunity to enjoy the ambience of the beautiful Vorarlberg federal state, cultivate old friendships and establish new contacts! See you in Dornbirn warmly Great. PD. Dr. med. Edda Haberlandt ao. Professor Dr. Daniela Karall Conference President Conference Secretary
