SMi is thrilled to announce the return of its 4th annual conference, Lyophilisation Europe, taking place on 4th and 5th July in London, UK. With the rising risk of contamination and the need for improved formulation methods of biological products, robust capabilities in lyophilisation and freeze drying methods have become critical for process efficiency and commercial success whilst maintaining drug quality and stability.

Innovation and efficiency is requested at every level making Lyophilisation Europe 2016, the perfect platform to strengthen knowledge in key principles such as PAT and QbD, whilst staying at the forefront of technological breakthroughs to adapt to a competitive growing industry.

Aimed at an audience of Senior Scientists and Heads of Pharmaceutical Engineering, Lyophilisation Europe 2016 will provide a focal point for the industry to discuss the latest advancements in pharmaceutical freeze drying, welcoming expertise from the likes of Boehringer Ingelheim, GSK and Sanofi.

GTCbio is proud to present the 3rd Metabolomics - Advances & Applications in Human Disease Conference, which will be part of The Genomics & Big Data Summit and takes place May 25-26, 2016 in Boston, MA.

There is still significant human variability in metabolite identification for targets and pathways. These challenges affect the advancement in biomarker development, mass spectrometry-cased imaging, big data, and the application of metabolomics for drug discovery and development.

Join us for an event that presents new research and offers networking opportunities with the researchers and scientists who are working on developing clinical assays, connecting the metabolome and the genome, and establishing common quality standards for experimental data

Sessions include:

I. Advances in Metabolite Markers - Discovery and Validation
II. Imaging and Computational Approaches to Assessing the Metabolome
III. Metabolite Identification - Targets and Pathways
IV. Bioinformatics for Metabolomics: Current Status and Future Directions
V. Translating Metabolomics Discoveries in Clinical Practice
We hope to see you there!

Conference Dates: May 25-26, 2016

SMi will present their inaugural conference on Alzheimer’s Disease 2016, which is one of the most threatening diseases that accompanies age, yet formidably mysterious in biology.

This conference will cover: Pre-clinical assessment criteria for AD diagnosis such as risk profiling, population group assessment and stages of AD progression. How do external stimuli play influence studies and outcome?

Furthermore, emerging frontiers in biomarker development to aid more accurate diagnosis and tracking of tau-mediated neuronal death will help further drug development as well as providing more answers into how AD occurs, and most importantly when.

The conference will gather leading researchers and clinical managers to discuss models, diagnostic imaging and novel therapeutic platforms.
