The Quest for a COVID-19 VaccineMore
Scientists are demonstrating significant innovation in harnessing both traditional vaccine techniques and cutting-edge/not-yet-proven strategies as they seek to build an effective vaccine against SARS-CoV-2. This conference will provide a neutral forum to explore achievements and challenges in the development of vaccine(s) in this arena. Major themes to be considered include the epidemiology of COVID-19 and the virology, immunology, and genetics of SARS-CoV-2; efficacy data updates from Phase 3 candidate vaccine trials, updates from Phase 1 and 2 trials, outbreak predictions, future considerations, and more.Targeting the Endocannabinoid System for Treatment of Human DiseasesJanuary 27, 2021More
This meeting will focus on the understanding of the physiology and pharmacology of the peripheral Endocannabinoid System. The goal is to illuminate the roles of CB1 and CB2 receptors with regard to possible discovery and development of entirely new classes of drugs for the treatment of inflammatory, immune, fibrotic, and neurologic disorders.The Youth Vaping Epidemic: From Science to Public PolicyFebruary 10, 2021More
The current youth vaping epidemic highlights the urgent need to understand the science and health effects of vaping. This symposium will convene experts from academic, clinical, and public health communities to discuss the science of vaping and related public policy recommendations.
