Health Impact Assessment Training: An Introduction to Health Impact Assessment Training is organized by Society of Practitioners of Health Impact Assessment (SOPHIA) and will be held on Jul 31, 2019 at Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Description: The Introduction to Health Impact Assessment Training is part of the Advancing Health and Health Equity event taking place directly after the Association of Public Policy and Analysis and Management (APPAM) Annual International Conference. The training will run alongside Lessons from Around the Globe Convening hosted by the Health Impact Project. Health Impact Assessment, or HIA, is an adaptable approach that can successfully bring new and valuable perspectives into existing decision-making structures, with the goal of identifying and addressing potential effects of policies on population health where they would otherwise not be considered. This training will include a broad introduction to the HIA process, interactive exploration of critical concepts through real-world examples, and an emphasis on selecting suitable policy decisions to examine through an HIA approach. Join experts from the field to learn the basics of this proven approach to integrating health and equity considerations into ongoing policy formation.

Staphylococcal Diseases Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Aug 03 - 04, 2019 at Gran Hotel Rey Don Jaime, Castelldefels, Barcelona, Spain. Conference Description: The Gordon Research Seminar on Staphylococcal Diseases is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. This meeting will focus on multifaceted aspects of Staphylococcal interactions with the environment. It will address the competition with the bacterial microbiome during colonisation as well as the interference with host immune cells during infection. Selected topics will investigate both, the bacterial strategies used to promote colonisation or disease (adherence, immune evasion, virulence) and the host immune responses against Staphylococcal infection. This seminar will provide a platform for young investigators in the field of Staphylococcal Diseases to present and discuss their cutting edge research. A mentoring program will provide the opportunity to discuss multiple career paths in microbiology including academia, industry, and beyond. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Staphylococcal Diseases Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Aug 04 - 09, 2019 at Gran Hotel Rey Don Jaime, Castelldefels, Barcelona, Spain. Conference Description: Staphylococci represent an important group of bacterial colonizers and pathogens of humans and animals. In particular, Staphylococcus aureus remains a common cause of human infections, some of which are life-threatening. In most parts of the world, many clinical S. aureus are resistant to all beta-lactam antibiotics isolates (methicllin-resistant S. aureus; MRSA), and are therefore difficult to treat. Alternative antibiotics are limited, a protective vaccine has proved elusive, and new epidemic clones with different combinations of virulence and resistance determinants continue to emerge and spread around the globe. S. aureus has become a model organism for the study of the basic principles of bacterial adaptation and host-pathogen interactions. However, many aspects of S. aureus physiology, virulence, and immune evasion remain to be elucidated and improved biological understanding may lead to new preventive or therapeutic strategies. Of note, we are just beginning to understand why only a subpopulation of the human race is colonized with S. aureus, how this facultative pathogen switches between commensal and pathogenic lifestyles, and what mechanisms govern the success of S. aureus in competition with other members of the microbiome. The 2019 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Staphylococcal Diseases and its associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) will bring together leading established and junior scientists in the field of staphylococcal diseases from all over the world. Cutting-edge research will be discussed in an interdisciplinary, informal environment to foster collaboration on the major challenge of staphylococcal infections, which can only be tackled appropriately in comprehensive, collaborative research efforts. The GRC will combine expertise in molecular microbiology, pathogen evolution and epidemiology, infection immunology, clinical infectious diseases, dermatology, and antimicrobial compound development with the joint vision of understanding and targeting S. aureus pathogenicity and of inspiring the next generation of young investigators. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
