The event will convene basic, preclinical, and clinical researchers active in the field of cancer immunotherapy, alongside industry representatives and government stakeholders. Dr. James Allison, Executive Director of the Immunotherapy Platform at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and a pioneer in the field of cancer immunotherapy, will commence the conference with a Keynote Address. Plenary speakers will present on an array of topics, including: the evaluation of combination therapy strategies to improve clinical benefit; the development of immune-monitoring strategies for the identification of relevant prognostic and predictive biomarkers; the development of strategies to overcome immune tolerance; and the incorporation of genomics into immunotherapeutic research and clinical trials.

Rare and Undiagnosed Diseases: Discovery and Models of Precision Therapy March 2017

March 5—8, 2017, Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Meeting Summary

Of the 7000 known rare diseases, only a fraction have their molecular and mechanistic bases delineated, and many other diseases have yet to be discovered. Characterization of these disorders will reveal new biochemical pathways and cell biological processes, point to potential drug targets, and provide hope for millions of affected individuals. This meeting will address approaches and best practices in pursuing rare and undiagnosed disorders, limitations in data sharing as a barrier to new disease discovery, and examples of successful descriptions of new diseases, mechanisms, and treatments. Specific aims include fostering the development of expertise in rare diseases and the definition of their natural histories; an international network of scientists and physicians collaborating on new disease discovery by sharing phenotypic and sequence data; and new therapeutic approaches based upon rare and new disease mechanisms. Through this meeting, participants should become familiar with rare and undiagnosed disease programs, acquire insights into new disease mechanisms, learn about potential therapeutic targets, and establish collaborations that enhance rare disorder expertise and new disease discovery. The meeting will bring together physicians who are expert in rare disorders with scientists who know metabolic pathways and mechanisms, advancing understanding and therapy. A desired outcome of the meeting includes developing lists of clinical and basic research experts for synergistic collaborations, and creating an international organization to perpetuate the joint investigation of rare and new diseases.

Keystone Symposia - RNA-Based Approaches in Cardiovascular Disease March 2017

March 26—30, 2017,Keystone Resort, Keystone, Colorado, USA
Meeting Summary
Cardiac diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide. RNA-based mechanisms and therapeutic approaches are emerging fields in cardiovascular science. This meeting will present and discuss latest developments using both coding RNA and noncoding RNA (such as microRNAs, long noncoding RNAs and circular RNAs) -based approaches to better understand and develop new therapeutic strategies for cardiac diseases. Attendees will benefit from workshops, specific sessions and industrial perspectives covering everything from basic science to clinical translation employing RNA therapeutics in cardiovascular medicine.

Keystone Symposia - DNA Replication and Recombination April 2017

April 2—6, 2017, Santa Fe Community Convention Center, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA
Meeting Summary
DNA replication and recombination are common to all cells. Errors in these processes lead to many diseases in humans, including cancer, and many fundamental questions are still unresolved. Due to recent technical advances in microscopy and other techniques, these dynamic processes can now be studied in time and space in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Moreover, breakthroughs in the biochemical reconstitution of processes in DNA replication and recombination repair as well as single particle electron microscopy promise to reveal new mechanisms at near-atomic resolution; and new DNA sequencing technologies make it possible to study these key processes in great details. Mechanistic similarities across the three domains of life provide new basic principles while differences identify potential targets for therapeutic intervention. The Keystone Symposia “Replication and Recombination” meeting has historically been one of the premiere meetings in this field and one of the very few that brings together scientists working in replication and recombination across all life forms. Because of the close relationship between DNA replication and recombination and their importance for genome stability, this meeting will be held jointly with the Keystone Symposia meeting on "Genomic Instability." Talks at the “Replication and Recombination” meeting will focus on the mechanism and regulation of these processes, with an emphasis on multiple organisms and multiple approaches. Talks in joint sessions will center on the metabolism of stalled replication forks and the importance of chromatin in replication, recombination and genome stability.
