2017 Pathobiology for Investigators, Students, and Academicians (PISA) Meeting
The American Society for Investigative Pathology is pleased to announce Pathobiology for Investigators, Students, and Academicians (PISA) 2017.  This interactive, abstract-driven, focused scientific conference entitled “Genome and Environment: Implications in Development, Regeneration, Injury, Immunity, and Malignancy” will be held at the Wyndham Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, PA, September 25-27, 2017.
The Society for Glycobiology is honored to be a Guest Society for this exciting event. We believe the science presented at the 2017 PISA meeting will be relevant to the interests of our members. 
PISA is aimed at delivering attendees the most exciting and up-to-date concepts in pathogenesis and translational medicine. World-acclaimed scientists will deliver lectures, while experienced members of the Program Committee will moderate discussions to provide a cordial, collegial and contemporary environment for learning and networking. Major lectures will be interspersed with abstract-driven talks. Poster discussion sessions will build an intimate setting for intellectual exchange and constructive criticism, especially for trainees and junior faculty.
The 2017 PISA meeting will include the following sessions:

Theme 1:  
Tissue Microenvironment and Organ Pathobiology

  • Session 1: Barbarians at the Gate: Building a different kind of a wall (session on Microbiome, Junctions, Injury, and Infections)
  • Session 2: Inflammation, Resolution, and Wound Healing: Knitting the Raveled Sleeve of Care
  • Session 3: Cancer-associated stroma and Tumor immunology: Dismantling the Environmental Protection
  • Session 4: Pre-metastatic Niche and Regulation of Tumor Metastasis: Instituting a Travel Ban
Theme 2:  Combating Diseases Through Improved Diagnostics and Therapeutics
  • Session 5: Cancer Epigenetics: Chromatin Landscape to Therapeutics
  • Session 6: The Role of Biopsy in Precision Medicine: Making Diagnostics Great Again!
  • Session 7: Diagnostic Imaging Modalities: Incredible and Hugely Amazing
  • Session 8: Signaling and Therapeutics: Targeting the Bad Hombres

An optional career development session (at no extra charge) entitled, “Science, Statistics, and Getting it Right: An Interactive discussion of Common Problems” will be presented during lunch on Day 2 of the conference by biostatistician, Dr. Danny Milner.

American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET) is partnering with the Academic Drug Discovery Consortium (ADDC) on a colloquium that will be focusing on “Fueling Innovation: Public Programs Driving Drug Discovery” (how to obtain funding). It is taking place October 12-13 at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD. More information about this meeting can be found at:
