6th International Fluid Academy Days (IFAD)

23-25 November 2017, Antwerp, Belgium

After the success of the last edition being fully booked with over 500 participants, we are very excited to present you the Sixth International Fluid Academy Days!

A neglected topic for way too long, the interest in fluid therapy seems to be quickly rising as the medical community is making a shift from looking at fluids as a mere method of stabilization towards the appreciation of its relevant side effects.

Fluids should be seen as any other drug with indications and contraindications and possible adverse effects. In analogy to antibiotics it is time to consider the 4 D's of fluid therapy.

5th HBP School - Future Medicine: Brain Disease Neuroscience

27 November - 3 December 2017, Obergurgl, Austria

The availability of clinical, genomic, proteomic and neuroimaging data sets combined with recent advances in ICT, data mining and computational modelling makes it possible to uncover unique biological signatures of disease from multi-level descriptions of the brain.

Medicine of the future will capitalise on these biological signatures of diseases for faster diagnosis, more accurate prognosis and leverage the discovery of mechanistic pathways for new types of drugs, novel treatments and ultimately personalised medicine.

The programme of the 5th HBP School combines lectures and practical sessions. In small groups, students will be working on a week-long project.

Throughout the school, participants are encouraged to introduce new ideas and suggest original experimental techniques.

Speakers will be available throughout the week to go into details of concepts, provide deeper insights, answer questions or help with specific group requests. Application for this school is open to the whole student community and early post-docs.

Up to 40 applicants will be selected based on an academic decision by the Scientific Committee. Participants are required to submit an abstract on their current research with their application. Applications from young female investigators are highly encouraged.
