The major objectives in these two conferences are to enhance the continuing education of a range of specialties in medicine and allied professions, including obstetrics, gynecology, midwifery, neonatology, medicine, surgery, family medicine, emergency medicine, cardiology, radiology, human genetics, and ethics. The key reasons that have characterized the success of these conferences for the past 34 and 18 years, respectively, are the highly qualified and renowned medical faculty, and the insights and lessons concerning the role of law and lawyers, communicated by acknowledged “super lawyers.” Only through a thorough understanding of the complexities of medicine and law can physicians and litigators hope to deal effectively with the continuing challenges of medical and legal practice. The specific goals of these conferences are to: Teach healthcare professionals to better comprehend the machinations of negligence law, and to develop a more complete awareness of the need for anticipatory and safety practice. Teach legal professionals about the complex issues encountered in the practice of medicine, including the intricacies of decision-making, aiming to sharpen their understanding on behalf of their clients, both plaintiff and defense. Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this conference, healthcare professionals will be able to articulate the role of law and lawyers in medical malpractice and discuss the complexities of the legal process. At the conclusion of this conference, legal professionals will be able to describe the best-evidence in medical malpractice as it pertains to obstetrics, gynecology, midwifery, neonatology, medicine, surgery, family medicine, emergency medicine, cardiology, radiology, and human genetics.

6th Nucleic Acids Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held during Feb 13 - 16, 2019 at Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive, Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas. Conference Description : The key role of nucleic acids is to encode and process genetic information at a molecular level. DNA is the genetic library of the cell, while RNA transports, translates and controls the expression of that information. DNA must be copied with unprecedented accuracy once every cell cycle. It is under constant endogenous and environmental onslaught, and a variety of repair pathways are necessary to maintain the integrity of the genetic blueprint. DNA is the only cellular molecule for which repair occurs to a significant extent. DNA undergoes recombination, a kind of molecular cut and re-join that creates diversity to facilitate evolution, as well as providing an important repair pathway. In eukaryotes something like 2m DNA is packaged into chromosomes so that it packs into the cell nucleus with a diameter of just 6 µm, while remaining accessible to the cellular machinery that reads out its genetic information. Understanding processes involving DNA and RNA at the molecular and chemical level is the central theme of this conference, with a marked structural and mechanistic perspective. The meeting will provide a platform for researchers to discover and discuss the latest advances in the field of nucleic acids, DNA and RNA, with exciting opportunities to share and receive feedback on unpublished data. Conference Topics : • DNA replication. • DNA repair. • DNA recombination. • RNA structure and function. • Translation and the ribosome. • Silencing. • CRISPR/Cas and genome editing. • Gene regulation and riboswitches. • RNA catalysis. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Epithelial Mesenchymal Interactions in Lung Development and Fibrosis Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held from Feb 17 - 20, 2019 at Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive, Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas. Course Description: Lung development is governed by epithelial-mesenchymal interactions. These pathways are recapitulated during injury and repair. This conference will focus on understanding key processes underlying lung development, injury and repair in the context of age, environment and species, with the hope of better understanding disease development and to discover novel therapeutic approaches. We will highlight critical issues on lung epithelial biology such as stem cells and regenerative medicine, while expanding sessions to encompass themes such as single cell analytical approaches, cell-cell communication, dissect the biological distinctions mesenchymal proliferation as a repair mechanism and fibrosis; present the impact of new tools in single-cell analysis on understanding lung development, repair, and disease; and characterize epithelial-mesenchymal interrelationships that maintain lung homeostasis and orchestrate repair and regeneration. The entire program has been designed to achieve a better understanding of the key clinical research issues and how they relate to basic mechanistic investigation. Key Sessions: • Fgf signaling in lung development and fibrosis. • Aging and lung fibrosis. • Lung stem/progenitor cells and their regulation in health and disease. • Organoid cultures to model lung development and disease. • Epithelial-mesenchymal interactions in lung development and fibrosis.

3rd Small Molecule Activation Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held from Feb 19 - 22, 2019 at Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive, Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas. Conference Description: Small molecules are constituents of the air we breathe (e.g. N2, O2, CO2) and take part in element cycles and various metabolic processes. Further representatives (e.g. H2, CO, CH4) are produced/converted in nature under anaerobic conditions or in industrial processes on large scales. Hence, small molecules such as those mentioned are readily accessible and comparatively inexpensive, so that it is highly desirable to include them into syntheses of value-added products or to use them as reservoirs of chemical energy (fuels). However, at the same time they are typically quite thermodynamically stable, so that their utilization requires an activation step. The topic of this conference will thus be concerned with various aspects of small molecule activation, with a focus on molecular insights. It provides a stimulating and interdisciplinary environment for both senior scientists and young researchers to discuss latest progress in the field. Prices: Academic from: USD 1822.0, Industry from: USD 1822.0, Student from: USD 1533.0 Time: 2:00 pm to 12:00 pm Speakers: Mu-Hyun Baik (KAIST), Marcetta Darensbourg (Texas AandM University), William Evans (University of California Irvine), Karsten Meyer (Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg), Oliver Einsle (University of Freiburg), Alan Goldman (Rutgers University), Osamu Ishitani (Tokyo Institute of Technology), Daniel Stack (Stanford University), David Milstein (Weizmann Institute of Science) Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

3rd Exploring DNA Repair Pathways as Targets for Cancer Therapy Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held during Feb 23 - 26, 2019 at Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive, Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas. Conference Description : Defect in DNA damage repair and checkpoint control is the underlying mechanism for tumorigenesis, since it allows the accumulation of multiple genetic alternations, which are essential for the initiation of tumorigenesis. This has been clearly illustrated to be the cause of several human cancer-prone syndromes and also revealed by recent human genome studies. On the other hand, defective DNA repair and checkpoint activation also make cancer cells more vulnerable for particular DNA damaging agents or inhibitors that specifically disrupt some of these checkpoint pathways. With the increasing understanding of defects in DNA repair and checkpoint control in tumorigenesis, there are extensive interests in exploring these deficiencies, especially taking advantage of the synthetic lethality concept and targeting particular DNA repair and checkpoint pathways for cancer therapy. The purpose of this conference is to bring together basic, translational and clinical investigators and discuss the current and future directions, opportunities and obstacles in the development of these anti-cancer modalities and how to best apply these concepts in clinical practice. Key Sessions : • Highlight recent advances in the field of DNA damage repair. • Identify novel targets in DNA repair and checkpoint pathways. • Explore the concept of synthetic lethality for cancer treatment. • Assess the therapeutic potential of new anti-cancer modalities. • Learn mechanisms of therapeutic resistance and ways to improve cancer therapy. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
