We are pleased to announce the Europe Drug Discovery Summit, which will be held May 6-9, 2014 in Berlin, Germany. The summit is a forum for colleagues from industry and academia, as well as across multiple disciplines, to gather and share complementary perspectives on the latest research and breakthrough. The summit includes four individual conferences that will take place over the course of the four days: Cancer Drug Research & Development (May 6-7, 2014) This conference will cover topics such as cancer targets, kinase inhibitors, drug resistance, combination therapy, cancer metabolism, invasion and metastasis, epigenetic regulators and immunotherapy. Tissue Models & Drug Screening (May 6-7, 2014) Physically relevant model systems have changed the way we look at early-stage drug discovery research. Come to learn about advances in HCA and phenotypic screening, using 3D models for target validation, and much more. Drug Design & Medicinal Chemistry (May 8-9, 2014) This meeting will discuss emerging target classes, advances in antibody drug conjugates and other methods for targeted drug delivery, new approaches in flow chemistry, and much more. Protein Kinases in Drug Discovery (May 8-9, 2014) Leading experts will focus on drug discovery and design, novel drug targets, kinase inhibitor development, including cancer treatments, and lessons from pre-clinical models and clinical development for use in creating personalized therapies. We hope you’ll be able to join us for exciting scientific presentations and dedicated networking sessions.

Retractable Protein Nanoneedles
The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in synthetic biology; a new study from researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School (HMS) introduces a novel mechanical method for controlling release of molecules inside cells.
Leukemia’s Surroundings Key to its Growth
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a type of cancer found primarily in children can grow only when signaled to do so by other nearby cells that are noncancerous.
Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell
By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.
‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer
A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.
Genetic Mutation that Prevents Diabetes Complications
The most significant complications of diabetes include diabetic retinal disease, or retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. Both involve damaged capillaries.
A Crystal Clear View of Biomolecules
Fundamental discovery triggers paradigm shift in crystallography.
Could the Food we Eat Affect Our Genes?
Almost all of our genes may be influenced by the food we eat, according to new research.

Institute has announced that the new effort seeks to understand virus effect on reproduction and child development.
Iron in the Blood Could Cause Cell Damage
Concentrations of iron similar to those delivered through standard treatments can trigger DNA damage within 10 minutes, when given to cells in the laboratory.
