Say hello to your teachers for the following days, each an expert of their domain.
Dr. Geoffrey Tabin, Professor of Ophthalmology and Global Medicine at Stanford University, member of the International Education Committee for the American Academy of Ophthalmology, is the fourth person in the world to reach the tallest peak on each of the seven continents. His passion for mountain climbing directed him to his professional career in eye care – turning him into the Co-Founder and Chairman of the Himalayan Cataract Project in 1995, with a vow to work to eliminate all preventable and treatable blindness from the Himalayan region in their lifetime. This deeply entrenched wish was born on one of his expeditions, when he came across a Dutch team performing cataract surgery on a woman who had been needlessly blind for three years and this is the point when he understood his life calling. Presently, Dr. Tabin is a leader in both the National and International Ophthalmic Community and teaches a course on cataract surgery at multiple societies, such as the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
An unbelievable journey involving the ascent of Mount Everest and the discovery of his life purpose… Dr. Tabin will reflect on two distinct yet parallel feats in his life. From becoming the first person to conquer the East Face of Everest to his work with the Himalayan Cataract Project, Dr. Tabin will discuss how to face the unknown and feel comfortable taking on challenges when success is not guaranteed. During this enthralling conference you will learn about the professor’s valiant efforts in eradicating global blindness, his calculated risks as well as insights regarding seemingly impossible goals.
A marvelous presentation of his adventures around the world, Dr. Tabin’s conference strays away from the ordinary and brings a new perspective into discussion. We can only say this much: are you ready?

Helicobacter pylori, previously known as Campylobacter pylori, is a Gram-negative, helically-shaped bacterium. It is an important human pathogen, etiologically involved in gastric cancer, peptic ulcer disease, atrophic gastritis, as well as other conditions. The current antibiotic therapy is not reliable when aiming for high cure rates. One of the consequences of antibiotic overuse is the development of resistant strains of bacteria, Helicobacter pylori included, as well as an increased prevalence of Clostridium difficile infections. However, by using the principles of antimicrobial stewardship, high cure rates can be achieved. We will discuss the details regarding how to effectively cure this infection.
Dare to dive into a whole new, different and hidden world! By taking a closer look, you will be able to see a fascinating realm ready to uncover its secrets and treasures. What we are not able to observe in everyday life is more spectacular than you can ever imagine. In this case, the closer you look, the more you see.
We all had the chance to observe how technology and medicine reinvented each other and made their own way through unbelievable discoveries that now stand for impressive awards. However, today's Healthcare and Medical Education are in trouble. We just engage in the smart use of technology to reshape their paradigms.
21st-century technology redefines the way we connect and communicate. These same technologies can allow for a better connection between humans and data, improving decision making. From VR, AR and XR to AI and Machine Learning, current technology will create the medicine of the future, TODAY.
Let’s shape together the shadow of the unpredictable and follow Dr. Rafael Grossmann’s conference in order to discover the correlation and dependency between exponential technology and exponential medicine. Astonishing, isn’t it?
For millions of years, life has been mainly composed by trial and error, as well as the advancements made in medicine. It often seems impossible to perform future-oriented research on safe and ethical grounds, if we consider the four ethical principles of today medicine: Beneficence, Nonmaleficence, Autonomy and Justice. How far can we pursue nonconventional research areas? Is it moral to perform an ethically-questionable act in the name of research and scientific advancements? We, as future medical practitioners, need to observe the fine line between progress for the greater good and the wellbeing of the patients.
How do we find the balance between necessary progress and mandatory safety for the patient? In the words of Hippocrates, "First do no harm". During DDr. Waldenberger’s enthralling presentation, you will gather valuable information regarding a contentious topic.
He is often called upon to speak to the future of health, medicine and technology and has given 5 TED and TEDMED Talks. He has multiple scientific publications and medical device, immunology and stem cell-related patents through faculty positions with Stanford University School of Medicine and as clinical faculty for the paediatric bone marrow transplantation service at University of California San Francisco.
From the perspective of a leading physician, scientist, inventor and innovator this presentation examines rapidly emerging, game-changing and convergent technology trends and how they are and will be leveraged to change the face of healthcare and the practice of medicine in the next decade. Daniel Kraft offers a fast-paced look at the next few years of innovations in medicine, powered by new tools, tests and apps that bring diagnostic information right to the patient's bedside.
A deep dive into where emergent fields such as low-cost personal genomics, the digitization of health records, crowdsourced data, molecular imaging, wearable devices & mobile health, synthetic biology, systems medicine, robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, 3D printing and regenerative medicine are transforming healthcare, and have the potential to enable clinicians, empower patients, and deliver better care and outcomes at a lower cost.

Dr. Glanville’s presentation will tackle a topic that prevails frequently both in academic debates and popular media: the elusive universal vaccine against the novel coronavirus. Is it even possible to create one? What methods are used and how do they work? During this brand-new conference, Dr. Glanville will aim to respond to these questions and further explain the bioengineering methods designed to create broad-spectrum COVID-19 vaccines, as well as cost-efficient and scalable antibody therapies.
The presentation will include a comprehensive description on these methods and how they can be used to adapt the antibodies targeted against the SARS-CoV to the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. Moreover, Dr. Glanville will track the studies conducted in a network of five independent laboratories and their results regarding the therapy and the prophylaxis against the wildtype virus or the pseudovirus in animal models. Another key point covered in this talk is the use of small fragments of antibodies (Fv and Fc) in bioengineering to obtain better results in terms of efficiency and safety: a longer biological half-life, a lower risk of adverse events. Last but not least, there will be a deliberation on the future of biological engineering, the challenges of manufacturing this type of vaccine and why scientists believe it is possible.

Keeping in mind that any emergency can have vital and unexpected consequences, this conference is the perfect scenario for challenges faced in emerging infectious diseases, or in natural disasters. We all know the significance of being exceedingly aware of situations that pose substantial risks, but how do we manage people, resources, information and time? First things first, let's find out together what stands behind The Incident Management System (IMS) and all the essential elements. Are you ready to dive into a new kind of conference?
Having this outstanding portfolio of achievements, we are honoured that Dr. Madad will hold a conference entitled “From Ebola to COVID19: Healthcare System Epidemic Preparedness & Response''.
It is known that the impact of COVID-19 over the world exceeds any other epidemic outbreak of the modern era, triggering the worst public health crisis of this century. Dr. Syra Madad operates in New York City, the first COVID-19 epicentre in the US, which experienced a tsunami of cases.
This presentation will address the importance of bio-preparedness, and the response efforts and challenges faced in a healthcare system moving from conventional capacity to crisis capacity as it relates to staffing, supplies, space and overall system from an emergency management perspective. Recommendations on changes that need to be made to improve biological preparedness across the national healthcare infrastructure will also be discussed.
Discoveries to be pointed out include: reduction of cancer and diabetes rates in both mice and humans by genetic mutations, prevention of major diseases in monkeys and modulation of risk factors in humans by chronic dietary restriction (CDR). Other points that will be discussed during the conference will be the proven impact of CDR lean on improving body mass, immunity, enhanced wound healing and possibly regeneration with decreased side effects and disease risk factors by Fasting Mimicking Diets (FMDs).
Join us for his exclusive IMSCB Conference, if you cannot wait to discover the practical meaning of these results and to see how FMDs could improve health and prevent a variety of age-related diseases. Our event will provide a sneak-peek of the ongoing and future clinical trials, aimed to determine which diseases could be effectively treated by FMDs.
During this conference, we guarantee that all our participants will be acquainted with the genetics of ageing, gain insight into the effects of calorie restriction on diseases, assimilate information about the effects of FMDs on diseases in mice and learn about the effects of FMDs on disease prevention in humans

The presentation provides a personal account of a life dedicated to exploring the universe of knowledge, beginning with the discovery of oxygen sensing enzymes, followed by more recent identification of hypoxia-regulated noncoding RNAs. Furthermore, Dr. Ivan will highlight the consequences of cellular oxygen sensing blockade and will introduce a new class of drugs effective against chronic kidney disease (CKD) anemia.
Whether you are interested in delving into the field of clinical or fundamental research, or want to gather information about the latest discoveries in medicine, this conference will suit you perfectly. We encourage you to learn from Dr. Ivan’s vast experience, shedding light onto a compelling topic.
This conference’s main goal is to make students acquainted with the idea of outer-space medicine and its actual problems. In the introduction, we will be discussing some definitions of space activity, available techniques, and a short history of key moments in space exploration.
What happens to your body in space? NASA's Human Research Program has been trying to solve this mystery for over a decade. Without family and friends, in zero gravity, exposed to radiation, a diet high in freeze-dried foods will increase a human's risk for cancer and other diseases like malnutrition. Dr. Adrian Macovei will be presenting the Physiology of outer-space condition, the changes that occur when exiting the atmosphere and the gravitational field, changes in body weight, blood circulation, radiation levels, and the day-night cycle as well as some microbiology aspects.
In the next section, we will examine the pathological factors and types of diseases that can manifest in outer-space. Here at the IMSCB, we try to reach beyond limits of understanding and common knowledge and we keep an open window for the next steps in the history of not only medicine, but humanity itself. In this segment, we will be questioning the plans that NASA and other space-exploring units exposed like the Lunar Base, Asteroid Exploration, Journey to Mars.
In the final section of this conference, we will be taking a look at everything discussed previously but strictly from the students' perspective and we will conclude which information is necessary for a medical student.
