The Tenth International Catecholamine Symposium (XICS), Sunday, September 09, 2012 - Thursday, September 13, 2012
Location: Ailomar Conference Grounds, Pacific Grove, CA
Description: The Tenth International Catecholamine Symposium (XICS) will emphasize integration of basic science with clinical pathophysiology, by a program centering on disease-oriented research about catecholamine systems. The goals of the XICS are to: disseminate the latest important basic scientific, disease-oriented, and patient-oriented medical advances about catecholamines; foster interactions among basic scientists, disease-oriented researchers, and clinical investigators, via common interests in catecholamine systems; emphasize integrative approaches for understanding the roles of catecholamines in cellular, organ, systemic, and organismic integrity; comprehensively update research on catecholamines in rare and common disorders of development in pediatrics, regulation in adults, and degeneration in the elderly; and foster synthesis of molecular genetics with integrative physiology and pathophysiology, based on evolving understanding of catecholamine systems.
NCI Summit on Carcinoids and Neuroendocrine Tumors, Wednesday, September 12, 2007 - Thursday, September 13, 2007
Location: Rockville, MD
Description: The goals of this summit were to assess the current status of neuroendocrine tumor biology, diagnosis, and treatment and to develop a comprehensive set of recommendations that address the major barriers to early diagnosis and treatment. There are plans to submit a synopsis of this summit and the list of recommendations for publication in a cancer journal and to members of the U.S. Congress. It was anticipated that this summit would increase general awareness of this disease, stimulate scientific interest in this under-represented area, and potentially open up new avenues of funding.
