  • Protein New Developments in Protein Structure Modelling for Biological and Clinical Research

    7 - 8 December 2015

    Protein New Developments in Protein Structure Modelling for Biological and Clinical Research https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/protein-new-developments-in-protein-structure-modelling-for-biological-and-clinical-research Hand on training workshop (7 Dec 2015) & Hot Topic Meeting (8 Dec 2015) The Biochemical Society at Charles Darwin House, London Organised by Christine Orengo (UCL) and Mike Sternberg (Imperial) Protein modelling has become increasingly important with the explosion in the number of determined genomes and the challenges of interpreting clinical studies of human variation such as being obtained from the Genomics England initiative. The hot topic meeting will review the status of a wide range of modelling tools highlighting the underpinning principles, how to get the most out of the features available and the directions for development. We will describe resources for analysis of multiple sequence alignments (JALVIEW), classification and annotation of protein families (CATH, SCOP and SUPERFAMILY), protein structure prediction (FUGUE, SWISSMODEL, PHYRE2 and the PSIPRED workbench) and an integrated resource of protein annotation (GENOME3D). Additionally, several of the speakers have developed enhanced methods to predict whether a missense mutation is expected to be disease associated and these tools will be reported (FATHMM, Duet and SUSPECT). These resources will then be placed in the wider context of the applications and developments of protein modelling. Speakers include: Geoff Barton, Franca Fraternali, Julian Gough, Tim Hubbard, David Jones, Lawrence Kelley, Tony Andreeva, Bernardo Ochoa, Ian Sillitoe, Torsten Schwede and Janet Thornton. On the first day we will run a smaller introductory hands-on tutorial and workshop (7 December 2015) for biologists and clinicians less familiar with the field which will focus on sequence alignment (Geoff Barton, Dundee), structural families (Christine Orengo, UCL) and protein structure and variant prediction  (Mike Sternberg and Lawrence Kelley, Imperial). You can register for either or both days. 2015-12-07 09:00:00 UTC 2015-12-08 00:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

As a result, exploration of that data has become even more crucial than in the past. In this 5-day workshop, we will dive into the topic of biological data visualization and how it can be used to gain insight in and get a "feel" for a dataset, so that targeted analyses can be defined. We will start by covering theoretical questions like: What is data visualization? How do we perceive images? How can we visualise data in the best possible way? As the workshop continues, it will become more and more hands-on and interactive; a large part will be committed to creating visualisations using the P5 javascript library, based on biological data. In the workshop, we will focus on omics (e.g. genomics, transcriptomics) data rather than e.g. imaging data.  Audience This course is targeted at biologists who want to explore, and gain further insight, into their own data through the use of visualisation and design approaches.  Some prior experience in programming would be beneficial, but pre-reading and exercises will be sent out to all successful applicants prior to the start of the course.     Contact:  Johanna Langrish 2017-01-30 09:00:00 UTC 2017-02-03 00:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

This year will be the 19th edition. EuroVis is the annual Visualization Conference organized by the Eurographics Working Group on Data Visualization and supported by the IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee (IEEE VGTC). It has been a Eurographics and IEEE co-supported international visualization symposium held in Europe annually since 1999. Since 2012 EuroVis is a conference. The exciting and vibrant field of Visualization is an increasingly important research area due to its wide range of applications in many disciplines. In general, our ability to collect, store, and archive data vastly exceeds our ability derive useful knowledge and insight from it. This is a ubiquitous problem. Data visualization is key in gaining an understanding large, complex data sets by exploiting the human visual system. Data visualization leverages computer graphics in order to provide a visual overview, explore, analyze, and present phenomena which is often difficult to understand.  The objective of the EuroVis conference is to create and strengthen connections between visualization researchers and practitioners, to foster collaborations, and to draw more researchers in Europe to enter this rapidly growing area of research. EuroVis has an expanded scope to include all areas of visualization, and a steadily more wide-spread visibility that allows to achieve a more wide-spread impact. 2017-06-12 09:00:00 UTC 2017-06-16 00:00:00 UTC [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] []

    25 - 26 September 2017

    Berlin, Germany

    Introduction to Effective Medical Writing https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-effective-medical-writing Medical writing is both a science and an art. The art of medical writing is to comprehend and present scientific information clearly to suit the specific target audience's level of understanding including patients, the general public, physicians and/or regulatory agencies. Often it is not poor science that kills a scientific paper; rather, it is the lack of clarity and continuity. Poor writing can be very costly to companies and frequently slows the review process of regulatory submissions. In this 2-day course, you will learn about the different types of medical writing and how to write effectively. We will examine various types of writing including abstracts, regulatory documents, and patient education materials. We will also consider ethical issues that face medical writers. You will gain insight into the design of effective documents and what goes into putting together a compelling manuscript. You will also learn how to keep your writing free of medical jargon and common grammatical errors, while ensuring the scientific integrity of your work. 2017-09-25 09:00:00 UTC 2017-09-26 05:00:00 UTC The Center for Professional Innovation & Education Mohrenstraße 30, 30, Mohrenstraße, Berlin, Germany Mohrenstraße 30, 30, Mohrenstraße Berlin Germany The Center for Professional Innovation & Education info@cfpie.com The Center for Professional Innovation & Education PharmaceuticalMedical Device 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Medical WritingRegulatorySubmissions

    Berlin, Germany

    Medical Devices: EU Directives, Guidance, CE Marking and ISO Standard Certifications https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/medical-devices-eu-directives-guidance-ce-marking-and-iso-standard-certifications Things are changing for Medical Devices and IVDs in the European Union (EU): new fundamental standards, new EU device regulations and BREXIT. What is now needed to enter or, more importantly, to maintain presence in this attractive marketplace for medical devices? Satisfying requirements harmonized across the 28 member states should be a straightforward process to get products approved for distribution in each country - but is it? This course identifies and explains the requirements – old and new – for medical devices, the steps to obtain entry into the marketplace (including setting up on-going procedures and relationships), the increasing importance of Clinical Evaluation and Post Market surveillance, Notified Bodies and Competent Authorities. The course also shares some lessons learned from the Course Director, who has over 25 years of experience with CE marking medical devices for distribution in the EU. 2017-10-12 09:00:00 UTC 2017-10-13 17:00:00 UTC The Center for Professional Innovation & Education The Berlin Hilton, Berlin, Germany The Berlin Hilton Berlin Germany [] info@cfpie.com The Center for Professional Innovation & Education Medical Device 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served EU DirectivesGuidanceCE MarkingISO Standard

  • Integration of Risk Management Principles and Activities into the Quality System

    16 - 17 October 2017

    Berlin, Germany

    Integration of Risk Management Principles and Activities into the Quality System https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/integration-of-risk-management-principles-and-activities-into-the-quality-system The regulatory and business requirements for the pharma, diagnostics, and medical-device fields continue to update, blend, overlap, and blur. With these changes, the importance of risk assessment—and risk management—gains higher business and regulatory significance. It now becomes even more important for professionals in these fields to recognize, accept, understand, and respond to these changes —particularly since new regulatory requirements have emerged within this changing environment. The market’s Tolerance for Failure of Drugs, Devices, and IVDs has reduced significantly in recent decades. This reduction reflects a general loss of confidence in the medical industry. The adoption of formal Quality Management Systems (QMS) has recovered some of that confidence, but we must still do more. This course addresses what we can do. 2017-10-16 09:00:00 UTC 2017-10-17 17:00:00 UTC The Center for Professional Innovation & Education The Berlin Hilton, Berlin, Germany The Berlin Hilton Berlin Germany [] info@cfpie.com The Center for Professional Innovation & Education quality/production managersengineersauditorsregulatory/quality professionalsclinical/product specialists R&D engineerslaboratory professionalsproduct-development professionals 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served diagnosticsPharmaceuticalMedical DeviceBiotech
