36th Anthropology and Health Conference 2017: Anthropology in the Service of Global Health @ Palace Dubrovnik
Jun 16 @ 3:17 pm – Jun 18 @ 4:17 pm

The 36th Anthropology and Health Conference 2017: Anthropology in the Service of Global Health to be held at the hotel Palace Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik, Croatia, June 16-18, 2017. The Conference will precede the 10th ISABS Conference on Forensic and Anthropologic Genetics and Mayo Clinic Lectures in Individualized Medicine in Dubrovnik, Croatia, June 19-24, 2017, so we encourage our participants to extend their stay in Dubrovnik and join the International Society for Applied Biological Sciences, thus strengthening the role of our Anthropology and Global Health Section within ISABS.
Global health today faces many new challenges. These demand global solutions, but at the same time keeping anthropological perspective on global health focusing on local contexts where human growth and development happen under specific circumstances within certain (sub)populations, and where health and illness are recognized and responded to in many different ways throughout the world. Contemporary migrations without any doubt represent an increasingly important and emerging global public health and anthropological issue. Dealing with complex diseases like metabolic syndrome, obesity, diabetes and hypertension often includes multidrug use, thus increased risk of polypragmasia and the necessity of individualized, pharmacogenomic approach, both person- and population-wise. Such approach enables more cost-effective and as early as possible disease prevention that may start even before a person is born. We would like to encourage further networking related to future research, which will bring out new solutions and advances in the research of the above-mentioned diseases.

10th ISABS Conference on Forensic and Anthropologic Genetics and Mayo Clinic Lectures in Individualized Medicine @ Palace Dubrovnik
Jun 19 – Jun 24 all-day

The 10th ISABS Conference on Forensic and Anthropologic Genetics and Mayo Clinic Lectures in Individualized Medicine is inviting abstract submissions to contribute to an already exciting list of speakers.

International Society for Applied Biological Sciences (ISABS) is founded with an idea to promote, enhance and extend research, development and education in molecular biology as applied to clinical and molecular medicine, molecular genetics, genomics, proteomics, forensic and anthropological genetics, biotechnology and individualized medicine. Although the first official assembly of the ISABS was held in 2004, the society has actually started with its activities in 1997 by organizing the international meeting in forensic ad clinical genetics: First European – American Intensive Course in PCR Based Clinical and Forensic Testing. Along the organization of biannual scientific meetings, during the past years the Society has become a rich source of prominent young scientist that are continually giving a huge contribution to the promotion and advancement in the various fields of applied biomedical sciences both in Croatia and abroad.
