    The British Institute of Radiology

    This event will cover important and difficult aspects of GI and HPB radiology. The morning session will focus on imaging of acutely unwell patients, covering difficult cases of bowel obstruction, GI bleeding and trauma, bowel ischaemia, imaging the post-operative abdomen and luminal/hepatobiliary intervention. The afternoon session will focus on the outpatient setting, covering MRI of focal liver lesions and diffuse liver diseases, tips and tricks for staging HPB malignancies, anal fistula MRI, pitfalls in CT colonography, and a debate on MRI vs ultrasound for small bowel imaging.

    By the end of this day delegates will have increased confidence in dealing with these difficult GI issues in clinical practice.

    Educational aims:

    • Increase knowledge and understanding of difficult cases in acute abdominal imaging
    • Increase knowledge and understanding of difficult GI and HPB cases in the outpatient setting

    Prof. Dr. med. Hauke Lang, University Medical Center, Mainz

    Dear Colleagues, Dear Fellow Scientists,

    12th International Congress of the European-African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association  The will take place in Mainz from 23rd until  26th of May, 2017 and it is my great pleasure to invite you to attend and participate in this meeting.The organizing committee in cooperation with the EAHPBA will put greatest effort in the creation of an exciting scientific program: in addition to state-of-the-art lectures and interdisciplinary symposia the meeting will give clinicians and scientists from Europe and all over the world the opportunity to present and exchange their HPB experience with particular emphasis on the integration of young scientists.
    Our website will provide most actual information about the scientific program, deadlines, accommodation and social activities.
    I am looking forward to welcoming you in Mainz in 2017.
    Yours,
    Professor Hauke Lang

    The British Institute of Radiology

    This event is aimed at clinicians, especially general radiologists who encounter PET scans as part of their daily work but don’t report them in addition to trainees. The aim is to give a basic understanding of the science underpinning PET, its indications, pitfalls and superficial image interpretation. It will conclude by summarising future tracer developments and imminent new indications for PET feature. Hear from high-quality speakers with vast experience in the world of PET/CT, including those from the West of Scotland PET centre, currently one of the busiest centres in the UK.

    Educational aims:

    • To gain a basic understanding of the science behind PET
    • To discuss indications for PET referral
    • To gain a basic understanding of PET interpretation

    FASEB

    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.

    ESMO - EACR

    “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.
