Conferences

Our Conferences are the best opportunity to enter the ever-expanding world of clinical medicine and fundamental science. Imagine great speakers discussing novel ideas and experience the amazement that comes with every discovery!

Some of our conferences will be Keynote Lectures – special talks held by our most prominent guests.

 

You are welcome to attend any Conference and Keynote Lecture without prior booking!

 

All conferences will take place on Saturday and will be divided into 2 groups: the morning group and the afternoon group. Please keep in mind that in order to receive your Certificate of Participation, you must attend at least two events (this includes Conferences, Keynote Lectures and Presentations), one in the morning group and one in the afternoon group. In other words, on Saturday, you can go to any Conference, Keynote Lecture or Presentation session you prefer, as long as one is in the morning and the other one in the afternoon.

 

Bengt Winblad

Professor of Neurogeriatrics

Karolinska Institute, Sweden

Keynote Lecture

________

Future therapeutic targets in Alzheimer’s Disease

Research on neurodegenerative diseases is an escalating field with an extremely active focus on therapeutic management.  The more recently discovered drugs do not make it on the market, but current research is escalating quickly. The Neurogeriatrics laboratory at the Karolinska Insitute, under the guidance of Professor Dr. Bengt Winblad focuses on discovering possible therapeutic treatment options for AD. As a lead researcher, Dr Winblad will come and offer his insights on where their work might lead in the near future.

Keynote Lecture

________

Tissue scarring – the dark side of immune response

Traumatic brain injury recovery is extremely difficult, and only 25-33% of patients make a complete recuperation in severe cases. The reason behind this is that the neural cytoarchitecture is not restored entirely, but is instead replaced with non-functional tissue, known as the glial scar. As the initial reaction of glial cells is essential for wound healing, it is important to understand the specific molecular mechanisms that turn the initial glial activation into the glial scar formation.

Dr. Maria del Rosario Sanchez-Gonzalez from the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich, Germany, will describe the importance of understanding the specific molecular mechanisms behind these pathways and how to better improve the functional recovery after traumatic central nervous system injury.

 

Mihai Craiu

______________

Associate Professor of Pediatrics

Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania

Conference

________

Simulation in Pediatric Emergency Medicine Training

Pediatric emergency medicine has some special characteristics of ethical and emotional nature, thus making it extremely challenging for medical students and residents to learn practical skills in this section of general training. The European Resuscitation Council has developed official protocols upon which pediatric resuscitation training for doctors should be based on, focusing on the steps that need to be taken when helping a child found in grave danger.

Mihai Craiu is Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, Romania and the Head of the Pediatrics Department at the “Alessandrescu-Rusescu” National Institute. He is also the founder of the Virtual Space for Children, a well-known Facebook page that aims to inform the general public of various conditions and news on Pediatrics, making him a pioneer of online medical education.

 

Gheorghe Peltecu, MD, PhD

______________

Professor, Department of Gynaecology

Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy Bucharest, Romania

Conference

________

The ERAS concept applied in cesarian sections | Prevention of pre-eclampsia

Research has shown that surgical treatment of patients is optimal when surgeons adopt a multidisciplinary approach. Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a system that aims to improve patient experience and clinical outcomes. This concept focuses on offering the best surgical conditions for the patient, improving physiologic function, and facilitating early recovery and discharge from the hospital. Patients experience a faster recovery, a shorter hospital stay, and a decreased risk of surgical complications.

Professor Peltecu will discuss the ERAS concept in relation to cesarian sections, and how patient management and comfort is becoming increasingly beneficial for surgical recovery. Assistant Lecturer Panaitescu will also discuss the prevention mechanisms for pre-eclampsia in the second part of the lecture, completing the idea that a multidisciplinary approach is very important when dealing with pregnancies.
