Video conferencing

10/17/2014
The mission of the Wireless Health conference is to provide the highest‐quality academic, health and industrial research forum to develop an international community that will accelerate the development and adoption of new technologies for improving health and lowering costs. Central to this mission is the creation of a nurturing research forum that communicates the latest developments in the field, creates an opportunity for transdisciplinary collaboration, and provides an archival venue for the progress being achieved. This unique meeting brings together members of the medical and health research community, device manufacturers, clinical and health service providers, government leaders, and policy makers. Wireless Health 2014 will offer an outstanding set of peer‐reviewed papers and abstracts, interactive workshops, emerging application demonstrations, and world‐renowned invited speakers.

Neuroscience Seminar Series

All of Dr. Huberman lab's behaviors, thoughts and perceptions stem from the activity of neural circuits: highly precise sets of connections formed between specific types of neurons. The three major goals of their laboratory are to: 1) Understand the functional architecture of the neural circuits that enable them to see and respond to particular aspects of the visual environment; 2) Discover how those circuits achieve specificity of their connections during development; 3) Develop strategies to replenish functional visual circuits in response to injury or disease.

A cornerstone their work is the identification of genes that are selectively expressed by functionally specialized neurons in the eye and brain. This allows them to delineate the specific circuit connections made by those neurons and to monitor and manipulate their activity during perceptual and behavioral tasks. It also allows them to probe the genes used by those neurons during development to find and form connections with their appropriate synaptic partners. Extending from these studies of the healthy brain is the exciting opportunity to address whether the mechanisms that assemble functionally precise visual circuits during development can be reactivated in response to diseases that normally cause irreversible blindness, such as glaucoma. To that end, they are using molecular genetic approaches to preserve and re-wire damaged visual circuits, and then testing what sorts of visual perceptions and behaviors those circuits can support.

TRACO

Recent advances in understanding cancer biology are beginning to be translated into improvements in diagnosis and treatment of cancer. In the post-genome era, we increasingly rely on strong collaboration between basic and clinical scientists to develop novel approaches for treatment of human disease. The NCI Center for Cancer Research (CCR) is one of the largest cancer research organizations in the world, with more than 200 principal investigators, and has played a major role in development and implementation of many new technologies, such as nanotechnology, next generation sequencing, genomics and proteomics.
