Led by a team of experts in causal mediation techniques at Columbia University, this course will integrate lectures and discussion with hands-on computer lab sessions using R, SAS, SPSS and Stata. The course will cover the relationship between traditional methods for mediation in environmental health, epidemiology, and the social sciences and new methods in causal inference using a wide variety of examples to illustrate the techniques and approaches.

We will discuss 1) when the standard approaches to mediation analysis are valid for dichotomous, continuous, and time-to-event outcomes, 2) using ideas from causal inference and natural direct and indirect effects, alternative mediation analysis techniques (parametric and semiparametric) when the standard approaches will not work, 3) the no-confounding assumptions needed for these techniques and sensitivity analyses to assess the impact of violation of these assumptions, and 4) how such mediation analysis approaches can be extended in the presence of multiple mediators.

There is a limited capacity for the Boot Camp. Investigators at all career stages are welcome to attend, and we particularly encourage trainees and early-stage investigators to participate.

Registraton Deadline, July 3rd 2019

INA-17 “Translational Neurotoxicology”

Organization: International Neurotoxicology Association
Event Date or Start Date: 9/29/2019
End Date: 10/3/2019
Event Type: SOT-Sponsored Events
Country: GERMANY
State or Region:
Additional Meeting Information: During the last decade the growing knowledge about structural and functional networks within the brain further fosters the understanding of how the brain achieves its astonishing functionality. Moreover, the knowledge about the dynamics of the maturation of these networks during brain development as well as their degradation during aging or diseases facilitates the understanding of functional impairments (e. g. neurobehavioral phenotype of toxic exposures) related to these processes. In parallel, the “omics-technics” provided enormous insights about the neurobiological processes underlying brain functions such as attention, memory and learning across the lifespan. All of these areas benefit from the huge progress in hard- and software development allowing data analyses that were unimaginable a couple of years ago. This scientific boost in neuroscience also affected the research topics and methodology in neurotoxicology. During the last decade, there was also another turning point related to toxicological risk assessment. Since the 2007 report by the National Academy of Sciences about toxicity testing in the 21st century many researchers in neurotoxicology developed toxicity testing strategies carried out in vitro in human cells or cell lines. These assays are thought to represent key events of brain development and functioning.

Against this background, the 17th biannual meeting of the International Neurotoxicology Association will discuss what could be achieved so far with respect to the overall theme of “Translational Neurotoxicology”. The scientific program will especially focus on research related to the translation of recent neuroscience knowledge into neurotoxicity research as well as on ways, how recent development in neurotoxicity testing can be translated and included in human risk assessment procedures.

ICRS 2019 - World Congress Vancouver

Organization: ICRS-International cartilage Repair Society
Event Date or Start Date: 10/5/2019
End Date: 10/8/2019
Event Type: Other Scientific Events
Country: CANADA
State or Region: British Columbia
Additional Meeting Information: In Vancouver we have the honor of being the first to incorporate the new focus of the society – that of Cartilage Regeneration and Joint Preservation. To that end, we aim to bring together the three traditional pillars of ICRS – clinicians, scientists and industry partners – to illustrate what we can do collectively, to address the growing need towards addressing joint dysfunction and disability. Musculoskeletal disease is a growing problem and represents a significant burden on society worldwide. The concept of joint preservation not only suggests joint tissue repair, but also improvements in patient function and wellbeing, a subject that we hope to showcase throughout the program.

A consistent theme through the meeting will be that of the ‘Next Generation’. This will include the next generation of joint repair technologies, of investigative techniques, and importantly, of researchers. Our interest in the future of the ICRS has been highlighted by our previous development of the ICRS NextGen group – recognizing and promoting the next generation of cartilage physicians and scientists, who ultimately will lead the ICRS into the future. As such, you will see many mid-career researchers and surgeons share their experiences and latest work, guided by the sage wisdom of our mentors throughout the congress program.

We are excited to be partnering with the Arthroscopy Association of Canada (AAC) to deliver the opening session on Stem Cell Tourism. This continues to be a hot topic where we will tackle the many issues that face our patients when searching for the ‘Holy Grail’ of joint regeneration. To that end, we will also include a plenary session on Stem Cell treatments – science, no hype – with leading international researchers providing facts about this evolving field.
