The 27th Annual Santa Fe Symposia is organized by Boston University School of Medicine Continuing Medical Education (BUSM CME) and will be held from Oct 18 - 20, 2019 at Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America Description Boston University School of Medicine is delighted to present the 2019 Santa Fe symposia, continuing the series offered for many years by Dr. Rob Guerette. These lectures will provide psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric social workers, psychiatric nurses, and allied mental health professionals with an outstanding opportunity to combine a stimulating symposium with a visit to unique Santa Fe. These symposia have been designed to offer professionals an update in recent advances in several widely varied areas of mental health. In addition to the didactic lectures, there will be ample time for interchange between the participants and presenters. Attendees will have a choice of two different programs: New Developments In The Cognitive Behavior Therapy Of Challenging Patients Donald Meichenbaum, Ph.D This three day advanced workshop that describes how Cognitive Behavior Therapy has evolved, a critique of its current effectiveness, and a detailed practical demonstration of how Constructive therapies strategies and interventions can be employed with four specific"challenging" clinical populations including: 1. Patients who have addictive disorders, including opioid abusers, with a specific focus on treatment guidelines on how to conduct an integrative treatment approach in order to achieve “lasting " changes. 2. Victimized and traumatized patients who have Complex PTSD and a variety of co-occurring disorders including prolong and complicate grief and Borderline Personality Disorder, with a specific focus on ways to incorporate evidence-based Cognitive therapy interventions to address the emotional aftermath of anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, anger and moral injuries. 3. Patients who experience anger, manifest aggression, and accompanying violence toward self and others with a specific focus on treating victims of interpersonal domestic violence. 4. Patients with Traumatic Brain Injuries focusing on ways to conduct comprehensive cognitive rehabilitation interventions. A case conceptualization Model that informs both assessment and treatment decision-making will be presented, as well as an enumeration of the core tasks of psychotherapy that contribute to lasting changes. All attendees will receive a free copy of Dr. Meichenbaum’s recent book “Recovery Voices: Treatment Of Individuals With Addictive Disorders” or Mindfulness and Heartfulness: Practices for Enhancing Well-Being Amy Saltzman, MD Mindfulness is paying attention here and now, with kindness and curiosity,so that we can choose our behavior. “Paying attention here and now” means doing our best to not dwell on the past, or worry or fantasize about the future; simply paying attention to what’s actually happening in this moment. And we pay attention “with kindness and curiosity.” Otherwise we are often incredibly hard on ourselves. We tend to see only where we’ve “made a mistake” or “screwed up.” Rather than judging and critiquing ourselves, with mindfulness we practice bringing an attitude of kindness and curiosity to ourselves and our experience. Finally, when we bring our kind and curious attention to our thoughts and feelings, to the sensations in our bodies, and to the people and circumstances in our lives, then we have all the information we need to “choose our behavior”—that is, respond in the moment to events in daily life. This workshop is for anyone who wants to apply these skills in their lives, and to support their patients/ clients doing the same. Together we will engage in variety of practices that will support us, and those we serve, in freeing ourselves from the inner critic, befriending difficult emotions, responding (rather than reacting) to challenging circumstances, engaging in true self-care, and offering ourselves and others kindness and compassion. Research demonstrates that for clinicians these practices decrease compassion fatigue and burnout, and increase empathy and clinical efficacy. For patients/ clients the practices decrease stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, physical pain, resolve ineffective/ destructive habitual patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, and increase physical, mental and emotional health, sense of purpose and meaning, and the ability to live with joy. This workshop will benefit both those with no prior experience with mindfulness and heartfulness, and those with long term practices in the field. Accreditation: Psychologists Coming Soon!

Tuberculosis: Immunity and Immune Evasion (A2) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Jan 16 - 20, 2020 at Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America. Description Tuberculosis remains the most common fatal infectious disease worldwide due to the absence of a sufficiently effective vaccine. Two critical barriers to the development of an effective TB vaccine are the incomplete understanding of the mechanisms of protective immunity to TB, and of the mechanisms of immune evasion by M. tuberculosis. The interactions among speakers and attendees at this conference will promote collaborations between scientists with complementary expertise and that work in geographically distinct institutions, including those in high TB burden regions. This conference will present new knowledge on mechanisms of protective immunity to M. tuberculosis, and promote dialogue between immunologists and scientists, in different areas of expertise, to fill gaps in knowledge. Participants will also discuss advances in TB vaccine development and vaccine immunology. Finally, this conference will cover topics on the advances in other fields of immunology and other infectious diseases characterized by pathogen persistence which will help to inform development of effective TB vaccines. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Diabetes: Glucose Control and Beyond (J5) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Jan 27 - 31, 2020 at Santa Fe Community Convention Center, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America. Description Modern technology has created a favorable climate for the “perfect metabolic storm”. Triggered by lifestyle habits that promote overnutrition and inactivity, Westernized societies are experiencing epidemic rates of obesity and its attendant co-morbidities. Foremost among these is type 2 diabetes mellitus, which is projected to reach a global prevalence of 10% by the year 2045. This grim epidemiological forecast has inspired intense efforts to unravel the molecular mechanisms that link positive energy balance to glucose intolerance and metabolic decline. This Diabetes meeting will assemble international leaders and rising stars in diverse biomedical disciplines with common interests in understanding and combatting cardiometabolic diseases. The program showcases new insights into the molecular underpinnings of obesity-induced dysfunction of the major peripheral organs that coordinate energy flux and glucose control: skeletal and cardiac muscles, the pancreas, adipose tissue, the liver and gut. Thematic emphasis will center on nutrient sensing and signaling, inter-organ crosstalk, mechanisms of insulin resistance, mitochondrial bioenergetics, islet biology and genetics of diabetes. A major goal of the meeting is to provide a forum that encourages interactions between basic and translational scientists at all career levels to critically evaluate recent advances and current controversies. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be further enhanced by the concurrent meeting on Islet Biology: From Gene to Cell to Micro-Organ. This meeting will consider metabolism in relation to islet function, in addition to studies of islet cell plasticity and differentiation. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Antibodies as Drugs: From B Cell Biology to New Treatments (B1) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 02 - 06, 2020 at Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America. Description Since the mid-1990s, antibodies have grown steadily into a clinically important pharmaceutical class with over 70 antibody-based drugs approved, predominantly in oncology, autoimmunity and inflammation. As the antibody drug field has expanded and matured in recent years, the field has moved from empirical strategies to deep knowledge-based, designer approaches for which understanding of mechanisms of action is critical; there has also been a trend toward increasingly specialized meetings with a narrow focus such as cancer immunotherapy, bispecifics or B cell biology. In contrast, we are proposing a scientifically diverse program that spans a broad range of different and cutting-edge topics relevant to antibody drug development, including antibodies for infectious disease and antibody pharmacology, topics which are often under-represented at major antibody conferences. Additionally, we have chosen a diverse collection of speakers from junior investigators to seasoned researchers from a wide range of institutions in at least eight different countries. We hope and expect that this approach will stimulate ‘cross-pollination’ between disciplines that span the gamut from basic to translational to clinical sciences with the common theme of antibody drugs for the benefit of patients Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Disruptive Technologies and Opportunities for Brain Therapeutics (Q3) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 16 - 19, 2020 at Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America. Description CNS disorders represent a major unmet medical need with associated societal burden that is unsustainable due to changing demographics (e.g., aging population). Recognizing this issue, major investments in basic and translational research have been made by government and non-profit institutions world-wide. On the other hand, pharmaceutical companies and equity investors continue to view brain therapeutics as a relatively risky area of investment. This symposium aims to highlight breakthrough technologies and approaches to de-risk CNS-targeted therapies. More importantly, with the proposed agenda and speakers we aim to show that integration of cross-disciplinary knowledge and approaches has the potential to overcome the contemporary challenges of CNS drug development. A unique aspect of this symposium is to bring in scientists from a range of disciplines, who rarely participate in the same meetings, in order to create an environment that can lead to disruptive innovation. Proposed speakers will provide both general overview as well as in-depth technical presentations to engage the participants in topics ranging from disease biology-informed target selection to novel medicinal chemistry approaches, biomarkers, and clinical trial designs. Advances in technologies such as genomics, imaging and brain delivery will be highlighted throughout. In addition, the speakers proposed represent public and private sectors, young and established scientists and world-wide geography. This meeting aspires to create an interdisciplinary environment that could also spawn new collaborations that would outlast the meeting duration to address the unmet medical need of CNS disorders. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
