    The focus of the GI Tract, Mucosa, Microbiota, and Beyond” conference will serve as an important venue for sharing the most current scientific discoveries in GI research and for establishing new collaborations between topic areas.

    This meeting will span the entire range of investigation in gastroenterology, from molecules to cellular interactions to microbiota to intact organisms. There will be a focus on comparing and contrasting normal biology/physiology with disease pathophysiology and on providing a clinical context for basic research observations. Eight thematic sessions have been organized to encompass rapidly developing areas in GI research: a) Monitoring and Responding to the Microbiota, b) Mucosal Injury and Restitution, c) Microbiota-Host Crosstalk, d) Signaling Mechanisms Coordinating Gastrointestinal Homeostasis and Response to Inflammation, e) The Stem Cell Niche, Inflammation, and Cancer, f) Transport and Barrier, g) Host-Pathogen Interactions, and h) Novel Approaches to GI Biology. The format is designed to facilitate the rapid translation of basic biology discoveries into new medically relevant approaches to human disease.

    In addition to the platform talks from established investigators and early-career rising stars, a number of abstracts from trainees and young investigators will be selected for short talk presentations, and two poster and two oral presentation sessions of rapid-fire “ePoster” presentations will be held to maximize the number of investigators given exposure. This conference will not only provide a strong overview of cutting edge GI research but also provide a critical venue for trainees and early career investigators to showcase their work.

    Alongside the scientific sessions, the meeting will have several important career development components. “Meet-the-expert” breakfast mentoring sessions will provide small-group mentoring opportunities for junior investigators. Workshops on grant-writing and publishing featuring NIH staff, editors of major GI journals, and experienced investigators in the field are planned, adding a rich component of mentoring and development for junior trainees at the meeting.

    This conference will facilitate face-to-face interaction between investigators in multiple aspects of GI biology and disease. It will bring young researchers into contact with established investigators who can contribute to their mentoring and career development driving new collaborations and promote synergy in the field.

    “Integrating science into oncology for a better patient outcome.” In an era of deep understanding of the molecular biology underlying the development of cancer, it is crucial that researchers and clinicians exchange knowledge.

    The ESMO 2017 Congress, in partnership with EACR, will bring oncology professionals together to facilitate interaction and bridge knowledge sharing between the laboratory and clinic. The aim of ESMO 2017 is to work together, aligning the objectives of researchers and clinicians, in order to provide more precise direction leading to better treatment options for cancer patients.

    The ESMO Congress is the most influential annual meeting for oncology professionals in Europe. We invite you to save the date.

    The First Japan-Turkey International Symposium on Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences was organized by Kumamoto University, Kumamoto – Japan on October 2-3, 2016. This scientific organization was the first meeting of Turkish and Japanese scientists on our international collaboration and projects. In this meeting, more than twenty scientific works were presented orally or as posters. Participants of the first meeting were from Turkey, Japan, Nepal, China, Egypt, Iraq and Sudan.  

    After this successful meeting, organizing committee members from both sides, Turkish and Japanese scientists, decided to continue this valuable and fruitful scientific collaboration. Thus, “The Second Japan-Turkey International Symposium on Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences, JATUSPAB-2” have been decided to be organized in Trabzon, Turkey during September 11-12, 2017.

    Although the title of the symposium covers Japan and Turkey, all scientists worldwide from all disciplines especially studying “Pharmaceutical and Biomedical”  are kindly invited to participate this valuable scientific meeting with unique social activities in Trabzon province of Turkey, where the green and blue meet.

    British Association for the Study of the Liver (BASL)

    BASL2017 Annual Meeting is the leading Liver meeting in the UK bringing together clinicians, nurses, scientists and those interested in liver disease.

    This year, the main meeting opens the Wednesday with a day devoted to cellular senescence. The second day has two streams: first, the interaction between the Liver and the Gut and second, the named lectures. These include the Ralph Wright Lecture (Professor John O’Grady) the British Liver Trust Lecture (Dr. Mary Ramsay), the inaugural Alex Mowat Lecture (Dr. Sue Beath) and the annual Dame Sheila Sherlock Prize Lecture. In the final morning we will follow the model from 2016 with a series of case-based discussions led by recognised experts in the field before a lunchtime departure.

    Other events during the week include:

    British Liver Transplant Group (BLTG) Transplant Meeting: Tuesday 19th – Wednesday 20th September.
    As an affiliate of BASL, the BTLG has built on the role of the UK and Ireland Annual Meeting and will integrate the meetings previously organised by each individual transplant centre to offer a central stage for those operating in or with a strong interest in the field of liver transplantation.

    This year’s meeting will be attended by both eminent UK and international speakers, including Professor Geoff McCaughan University of Sydney, Australia, and Professor Peter Friend who will deliver the distinguished Williams-Calne lecture.

    BASL Nurse Forum Annual Meeting: Thursday 21st September
    The liver nurses hold their Annual Meeting in parallel on the Thursday and this year this has especial importance as it will be celebrating the launch of the newly formed British Liver Nurses Association following a merger of the BLNF & the BASLNF. This day promises to deliver exciting and inspiring sessions for all nurses working within Hepatology, with the programme including a wide range of topics relating to liver disease and its associated issues and challenges.
