Meeting/Workshop

Workshop: NASEM Improving Cancer Diagnosis and Care – The Clinical Application of Computational Methods in Precision Oncology

The National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) will be holding a workshop entitled, Improving Cancer Diagnosis and Care: The Clinical Application of Computational Methods in Precision Oncology.

The National Cancer Policy Forum developed a two-workshop series to examine strategies to improve cancer diagnosis and care. 

NASEM is distinctively qualified to provide nonpartisan, objective guidance for decision makers on pressing issues. The work of the NASEM spurs progress by connecting understandings of science, engineering, and medicine to advising national policies and practice.

Members of the public may attend this workshop in person. For more information please visit NASEM's website.

Workshop: 2018 U.S.-EU: Bridging NanoEHS Research Efforts

The 2018 U.S.-EU: Bridging NanoEHS Research Efforts joint workshop will bring together the U.S.- EU Communities of Research (CORs), which serve as a platform for American and European scientists to share information on nanoEHS research. This will be the 7th event in a series of joint nanoEHS workshops organized by the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative and the European Commission.

LOCATION: 470 L’Enfant Plaza, Suite 8001, Washington, DC 20024

DRAFT AGENDA: Click here.

Note: The 2018 U.S.-EU: Bridging NanoEHS Research Efforts joint workshop will take place immediately after the 2nd Quantifying Exposure to Engineered Nanomaterials from Manufactured Products (QEEN II) Workshop on October 9-10, 2018, in the Washington metro area. Interested participants are encouraged to attend both events.

 

 

Workshop: CPSC & NNI Quantifying Exposure to Engineered Nanomaterials from Manufactured Products

The Consumer Product Safety Commision and the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) are co-sponsoring a workshop on the 2nd Quantifying Exposure to Engineered Nanomaterials from Manufactured Products (QEEN II). The workshop highlights new research on the tools and methods available to characterize and quantify effective population exposures, as well as the presence and release potential of nanomaterials. This two-day technical workshop builds on key themes that emerged from the first QEEN workshop in 2015.

Members of the public may attend in person. For more information visit the NNI website

Meeting: FDA Opioid and Nicotine Use, Dependence, and Recovery - Influences of Sex and Gender

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA)'s Office of Women's Health, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, and Center for Tobacco Products are announcing a conference entitled “Opioid and Nicotine Use, Dependence, and Recovery—Influences of Sex and Gender.” The purpose of the conference is to discuss the biological (sex) and sociological (gender) influences on misuse, abuse, and cessation of opioids and tobacco. Researchers, educators, and clinicians may benefit from attending this multidisciplinary review and update on opioid and tobacco.

Members of the public may attend in person or via webcast. For more information please visit the Federal Register notice.

Joint Meeting: NCATS Advisory Council and Cures Acceleration Network Review Board

The National Cancer for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS) and Cures Acceleration Network Review Board, both within the National Institutes of Health, will hold a joint meeting. The meeting will feature presentations from the leadership and invited guests and will provide opportunity to present proposed initiative concepts.

Members of the public may attend in person. For more information visit NCATS's website.
