Metabolism in Health and Disease Conference 2019 is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held from May 24 - 27, 2019 at Fiesta Americana, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico. The target audience for this medical event is researchers interested in connecting metabolism to cancer, inflammatory diseases, stem cells and aging in both academia and the biotech/pharma industries. Interested researchers need to be on top of these interconnected fields and will want to participate in an international meeting serving as platform for presentation and discussion of the most up-to-date preclinical and clinical work emerging from them. Conference Description: The new millennium has seen a resurgence in our appreciation of metabolism as a central discipline in our understanding of human health and disease. Although the pathways necessary for ATP production and synthesis of macromolecules (nucleic acids, lipids, and amino acids) were elucidated decades ago, their role in determining cell fate or function has been uncovered only recently. The discovery that oncogenes and tumour suppressors reprogram nutrient uptake and metabolism in malignant cells has re-energized the field of cancer metabolism and more broadly stimulated a second “golden age” of disease-oriented research in biochemistry. Recent work has also shown that metabolites themselves influence signal transduction and gene expression, indicating a surprising degree of crosstalk between metabolism and other regulatory networks in cells and tissues. Metabolites are also important in communication between cells both within a tissue and systemically throughout the body. At this conference we will discuss the role of metabolism in controlling cell fate and function in multiple contexts including cancer, tissue regeneration, immune responses and aging. Speakers:Janelle Ayres (Salk Insitute), Kivanc Birsoy (Rockefeller University), Edward Chouchani (Dana-Farber Cancer Institute), Heather Christofk (University of California, Los Angeles), Maralice Conacci-Sorrell (UT Southwestern Medical Center), Andy Dillin (UC Berkeley), Gerard Evan (University of Cambridge), Mark Febbraio (Garvan Institute), Douglas Green (St. Jude Children's Research Hospital), Marcia Haigis (Harvard Medical School), Russell Jones (McGill University), Brendan Manning (Harvard T.H. Chan), Christian Metallo (UC San Diego), Thales Papagiannakopoulos (NYU School of Medicine), Erika Pearce (Max Planck Institute), Jared Rutter (University of Utah), David Sabatini (Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research), Gerald Shadel (Salk Insititute), Celeste Simon (University of Pennsylvania), Poul Sorensen (The University of British Colombia), Matthew Vander Heiden (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

2nd Cell Death, Cell Stress and Metabolism Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held from May 27 - 30, 2019 at Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta All Inclusive, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico. Target Audience: From basic researchers interested in cell death all the way to people in the biotech and pharma industries who would like to be on top of these fields and want to form part of a meeting which is specifically geared towards providing a platform for the presentation and discussion of the most up-to-date preclinical and clinical work in these fields. Conference Description: The interplay between cell death, cell stress and metabolism plays a crucial role in shaping normal turnover of tissues, in sensing of danger posed by pathogens or other damage and the immunological response that is mounted to response to them. At this conference we will discuss the basic biological principles that govern cell death, cell stress and metabolism. We will also cover how cellular stress and alterations in metabolism influence the cellular death programs such as apoptosis, necroptosis, ferroptosis and others. Importantly, this conference aims to become the go-to forum at which the most current and up-to-date therapeutic avenues in the fields of cell death, cell stress and metabolism will be presented and discussed. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

3rd Personalized Medicine Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held from May 30 - Jun 02, 2019 at American Fiesta, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico. The target audience for this medical event is broad spectrum of researchers working on Personalized Medicine and will include Pathologists, Geneticists, Genetic Counsellors, Clinical Pharmacists, Pharmacologists, Data Scientists and Bioinformaticians. Course Description: New diagnostic technologies and therapeutic approaches are being developed and implemented which will transform patient management in the near future. As with the previous two meetings, this conference will include academic scientists and industry leaders. In addition to topics discussed at the previous personalized medicine conferences, for 2019 we plan to add speakers in particularly timely topics such as pharmacogenomics, machine learning, and high throughput drug screening, all of which have the potential to truly transform the practice of medicine. Attendees at the previous Personalized Medicine Conferences found the mix of topics stimulating and informative. Course Key Sessions: • Overviews of Personalized Medicine/Precision Medicine. • Precision Diagnostics. • Cancer Genomics. • Biomarkers. • Computational Imaging. • Bioinformatics. • Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence. • Big Data/ Data Science. • Pharmacogenomics. • Wearable technology. • Ethics panel. • High throughput drug screening of patient tumor cells to personalize cancer care. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

2nd Synthetic Biology for Natural Products Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held from Jun 02 - 05, 2019 at Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta All Inclusive, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico. Target Audience: Synthetic biology scientists and companies looking to learn the latest engineering and synthetic biology technologies for converting small molecule, natural product pathways into novel compounds. Topics discussed during the conference will span the experimental spectrum from molecular biology, microbiology, drug discovery, chemistry and pharmacology, to antibiosis activities against cancer, viral and microbial pathogens, as well as biocontrol and biostimulants. Conference Description: Genome sequencing has revealed an enormous untapped biosynthetic capacity for microbial natural products, only a small fraction of which are represented in fermentation-based screens. Synthetic biology tools are being developed to translate the encoded diversity of microbial biosynthetic pathways into novel compounds and natural products. The Synthetic Biology of Natural Products conference will blend these disciplines with the goal of generating new platforms, tools and technologies to capture, manipulate and engineer natural product genes and pathways. Converting this vast untapped (meta)genomic diversity into novel chemical leads for biomedical and agricultural applications will require breakthroughs in design, scale and biologics that currently limit the field. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
