Laboratory Animal Sciences – A BioConference Live Event

February 4, 2015 - February 5, 2015

BioConference Live makes it easier and more cost-effective for the cancer research community to come together online through live video webcasts and real-time networking. BioConference Live attendees learn new concepts, tools and techniques that they can apply to research and diagnosis. BioConference Live requires no travel or time away from the lab or hospital, yet delivers all the benefits of a physical conference. Attendees can earn free CME and CE Credits.

Topics will include Epigenetics, Drug Discovery, Therapeutics, Detection, Stem Cells, Cancer Evolution and Resistance, Bone Marrow, Global Cancer Crisis, Brain Cancer, Cancer Genetics, Nanotechnology, Lung Cancer, Obesity, Energy Balance, and Metabolism, Colon Cancer, Cell Technologies, Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Vaccines, Pancreatic Cancer, Melanoma, Liver Cancer, Lymphoma, Leukemia, Biomarkers, Monoclonal Antibodies, Cervical Cancer, Chromatin, Epigenetics, Immunology, Drug Development, Molecular Diagnostics, Signaling, Research Funding, Kinome/Kinase, Cell Engineering, Next-Generation Sequencing, and other topics.

This event will bring together research scientists, post docs, principal investigators, lab directors and professionals from around the world to learn about recent advances in cancer research. This conference offers an amazing opportunity as it is free to participants, and there will be no out-of-pocket expenses for travel. However, participants will still benefit from interacting with a global community of like-minded colleagues, without leaving the comfort of their office or home.

Conference participants will be able to

  •     Attend interactive live streaming video sessions
  •     Have their questions answered in real-time by industry experts
  •     Chat live with peers and speakers
  •     Browse a virtual exhibit floor for solution providers
  •     Earn free CME and CE continuing education credits

No crowded airports, delayed flights or expensive hotel rooms, but still the look and feel of a first-rate conference with world renowned experts. Participants also benefit from the fact that experts and vendors are more accessible, no more waiting in line to speak to someone. Think it is too good to be true? Checkout the venue and become a believer.

National Research Council – ILAR Roundtable: Performance Standards in the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals

 April 20-21, 2015

As anyone involved with care and use of research animals knows, designing and managing an effective program is a size-fits-all exercise.  Applying care and use guidelines requires interpretation, professional input, sound judgment, and a team approach, all of which are importance features of performance standards. The National Research Council’s ILAR Roundtable invites you to join this free workshop where experts from around the world will discuss established performance standards and how they might be improved to conform with today’s experimental environment.  We encourage you to take a brief survey to let us know what you’d like to learn at the workshop and to register today, as space is limited.
