British Society of Immunology Annual Meeting 2014
The British Society for Immunology Congress is the BSI’s flagship event. As one of the oldest and most active immunology societies in the world, the BSI annual congress has established itself as the must attend immunology event of the year, where leading immunology specialists from all over the world come together under one roof. The congress enables the exchange of ideas and knowledge to facilitate research and collaborations focusing on immunology. For 2014 the BSI Committee is delighted to be holding the Congress at the Brighton Centre, which is regarded as one of the finest venues in the country, offering top class conference facilities to organisers and delegates alike.

9th BENELUX Bioinformatics Conference 2014
Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
BBC 2014 is the second edition of the Benelux Bioinformatics Conference that will be held in Luxembourg. The conference program will include oral presentations from all fields of bioinformatics, a poster session, talks by international speakers and a network discussion. The conference will create also opportunity for sponsors, who might present software demos and commercial products. Each BBC conference attracts up to 200 researches from both academic and public research institutions as well as from private sector. The multi-environmental and interdisciplinary character of the conference allows sharing various ideas among participants interested in fundamental biological research, biotechnologies and computational biology. Topics discussed during the BBC conferences, include, among others, research on biological networks, structural bioinformatics, and the analysis of high-throughput sequencing data and micro-array expression data. We are looking forward to meeting you in Luxembourg!

New York Academy of Sciences 2014 - Diabetic Kidney Disease: Drug Discovery and Clinical Development Challenges
Conference abstract submission - deadline passed
New York, NY, USA
Diabetic nephropathy is the leading cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the United States, and is associated with elevated cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The progression of kidney disease in patients with diabetes occurs over many years, and interventions such as glycemic control and blood pressure lowering with inhibitors of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system have been shown to slow this progression. Despite the standard of care, the prevalence of patients with ESRD secondary to diabetic nephropathy continues to rise. Recently, several drugs in late clinical development have failed due to lack of efficacy and/or safety concerns. Finding and validating new targets to treat this condition have proven challenging due to lack of a deep understanding of the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy and biomarkers that can reliably define the rate of kidney function loss. This symposium reviews recent experimental approaches that may lead to the identification of targets for preventive or therapeutic interventions, and discusses the current challenges in the clinical development of therapeutic agents to treat diabetic kidney disease.
