New York Academy of Sciences 2013 - The Microbiome in Health, Disease, and Therapeutics: Bugs, Guts, and Drugs
Conference abstract submission - deadline 23 August 2013
New York, NY, USA
The host of microorganisms inhabiting the human body, or microbiome, plays essential roles in both health and the pathogenesis and resolution of disease. Symbioses between humans and the microbiome influence broad aspects of human biology including nutrition, immune function, and even brain development. Altered microbial community profiles are associated with a variety of chronic diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, allergic conditions, obesity, and psychiatric and neurological disorders. The microbiome influences therapeutic interventions: metabolism of drugs by both intestinal bacteria and enterocytes, leading to systemic absorption may provide valuable insights into pre-systemic drug metabolism, delivery, and toxicity. A better understanding of the metabolic pathways may aid in drug development and toxicity evaluation processes. The microbiome itself may be a target of, or tool for new therapeutic strategies for diseases as diverse as irritable bowel syndrome, and Parkinson’s disease. This symposium reviews the basic biology of the human microbiome symbiosis and its systemic effects, the impact of the gut microbiome on drug metabolism, the opportunities offered by the microbiome for new drug development, and the essential role played by the microbiome in a variety of disease states.

8th Meeting of the Southern Hemisphere on Mineral Technology 2013
The Meeting of the Southern Hemisphere on Mineral Technology (MSHMT) reach its 8th edition in 2013, being the most important meeting in mineral treatment and extractive metallurgy in Brazil. Together with the VIII MSHMT will happen the XXV Brazilian National Meeting of Mineral Treatment and Extractive Metallurgy (ENTMME). The VIII MSHMT and XXV ENTMME are both directed to researchers, professionals, managers, professors and students from mining, metallurgy, oil, environment and hydric resources sector. The meeting will be composed by a debate forum and aim, at each edition, enhance e qualify its activities, seeking to present in a privileged way a bigger divulgation of the mining and metallurgical activities, as well as propitiate the professional strengthening and contacts diffusion. It is expected the participation of researchers from entire southern hemisphere, in special Brazil, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, China and Japan.

10th International Marine Biotechnology Conference (IMBC) 2013
Conference abstract submission - deadline 30 August 2013
The International Marine Biotechnology Conference is the premier meeting in marine biotechnology and micro-biotechnologies. Dating back to 1989, previous IMBCs have been held in Japan (twice), The United States of America, Norway, Italy, Australia, Canada, Israel, China and Australia. The 10th IMBC will showcase leading-edge developments in marine biotechnologies, from algal biotechnologies through to whole-organism biotechnologies and the application of marine genomics, metagenomics and chemistry in biomedicine, bioprocessing and aquaculture. Sustainable policies and practices will be at the fore throughout the conference.

World Drug Repositioning Congress Europe 2013 is the region’s only market place for drug development, indication expansion and lifecycle extension stakeholders: an exhibition, a strategic keynote conference and real life case studies.
November 14 - 17, 2013
Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality Annual Meeting 2013
Conference abstract submission - deadline passed
San Diego, CA, USA
Connections: Interdisciplinary Perspectives in Sexuality which will focus on facilitating discourse between a variety of disciplines on sexuality research and creating a space for an intercourse of ideas. We’ve witnessed the repudiation of long held misconceptions about sexuality and established a science of sexuality that now forms a complex body of epidemiological, biomedical, psychological, sociological, anthropological and clinical knowledge. This was accomplished through alliances and collaborations, amid conflict and controversy. Today we’re contending with polarities and commonalities among sexologists, clinicians, researchers, educators and policymakers. The scientists among us will continue this legacy through having a commitment to interdisciplinary communication and transference of knowledge.
November 29 - 30, 2013
3rd International Fluid Academy Days (IFAD) 2013
A neglected topic for way too long, the interest in fluid therapy seems to be quickly rising as the medical community is making a shift from looking at fluids as a mere method of stabilization towards the appreciation of its relevant side effects. And there's more! Since fluid overload is no longer seen as a cosmetic problem but as hazardous to many of our patients, a real challenge lies in the search for strategies to avoid this complication. Modern hemodynamic monitoring can help the clinician in finding thresholds to start and stop filling patients up. What is the place of the CVP and PCWP? Is there an advantage in the use of volume instead of pressure monitoring? Which technologies do we have available? What is the place of lactate? What is around the corner in non-invasive techniques?

Biochemical Society 2013 - Annual Symposium - Biochemical determinants of tissue regeneration meeting
Shrigley Hall Hotel, Macclesfield, UK
The field of regenerative medicine offers tantalising hope for the repair and replacement of damaged organs and tissues, with the ultimate goal of restoring normal tissue function. This field represents an enormous range of biological, chemical and biophysical technologies that harness the restorative properties of living materials, especially human cells, to produce new molecular and cellular medicines, diagnostics, devices and healthcare research tools. The goal of this Biochemical Society Annual Symposium is to explore the key biochemical determinants of tissue regeneration. We aim to highlight the contribution of biochemistry to this emerging field of regenerative medicine. We also hope to foster new collaborations among regenerative medicine scientists, clinicians, and bioengineers under the auspices of the Biochemical Society.
December 12 - 14, 2013
11th Annual Rocky Mountain Bioinformatics Conference 2013
Conference abstract submission - deadline 10 October 2013

The Rocky series began eleven years ago as a regional conference, and has grown into an international program with a spotlight on regional development in the computational biosciences. The presenters of the Rocky conference are scientists representing a broad spectrum of universities, industrial enterprises, government laboratories, and medical libraries from around the world. The meeting is a chance to get to know your colleagues near and far, seek collaborative opportunities, and find synergies that can drive our field forward.
