Title “MS-based metabolomics applications in pharmacy”

Understanding of complex biological systems requires the measurement, analysis and integration of multiple compound classes of the living cell, usually determined by transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomics measurements. Metabolomics studies aim for the identification and quantification of the complement of all small molecules and lipids within a biological system.
In recent years, metabolomics has emerged as cornerstones in the field of systems biology. This workshop will provide the participants with: Introduction to ‘omics’ technologies Experimental design and sample preparation in metabolomics studies MS-based metabolomics analysis Multivariate data analysis

MSA University - MSA University - The Faculty of Management Sciences Organizes The 2nd International Conference May 8-9, 2016.

Management of the transition period in Egypt hypothesizes a parallel consideration to strategies. Strategies are of core value and are central for deeply-rooted development and accelerated reform. We realize that the strategic management of the aspects of developmental reform requires an integrated perspective of macro-micro arrangements and relationships. Government and business players are the potential key holders of such integration, in addition to interactive networking and societal involvement. Our conference perceives an enlarged concept that entails partnerships and alliances. Thinking of Egypt challenging transition from a multi-visionary diversified perspective is our contribution to the concurrent movement of socio-economic-politico deliberate shifts.

Main aim is to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, and scholars, to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects and strategies that boost the transition in Egypt; also to provide the premier interdisciplinary forum for practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations; trends and concerns; practical challenges encountered, and the solutions adopted in the field of strategic development.

All honorable authors are kindly encouraged to contribute to, and help shape the conference, through submissions of their studies’ papers. Also, high quality research contributions describing original and unpublished results of conceptual; constructive; empirical; experimental; or theoretical work in all areas of “developmental reform” are cordially invited for presentation at the conference. We solicit contributions of papers that address themes and topics of the conference, including figures, tables and references of novel research material.

MSA University - 2nd Annual International Teaching, Learning and Assessment Conference

Dear respected colleagues,

You are warmly invited to participate in MSA second annual international conference on Learning, Teaching and Assessment entitled Exploring technology-enhanced teaching, learning and assessment practices in a post-digital age that takes place at MSA University on Thursday 29 March, 2018. If a ‘Post-digital age’ is characterised by transitions in our teaching and learning practices brought about by technology, what is its continuing impact on higher education, and to what extent does it shape our identity, the future of our work and the institutions we work in? In this year’s conference we will consider the challenges, opportunities, debates, disruptions and transformations that are shaping the future of Higher Education, in Egypt and globally. We hope it will trigger ideas for engaging students, and provide us, as teachers, researchers or professional services staff, with opportunities to reflect on our own development needs and career aspirations. Through examining the practices that take place in physical and virtual learning spaces, we provide a platform to share and contextualise our own experiences with colleagues from MSA and our UK partner institutions. The conference takes place during mid-term exams and provides a space to critically reflect upon the year so far, learn from our experiences and those of our colleagues, and implement changes for the year ahead. In the current context of change, making contacts, sharing ideas and building community can stimulate and encourage us all as we continue to enhance our students’ experience, engagement and achievement. The conference takes a developmental approach beginning with an overview of the importance of effective technology-enhanced teaching in the sector. It moves onto presentations about innovative practice and ideas, followed by sessions that stimulate professional practice leading to professional development. The conference offers a range of formats addressing questions that will involve participants through lively discussion and activity. It will be of interest to all academics and professional services staff. We invite contributions that demonstrate exploratory, novel, or improved practices that have led to improving students’ learning or engagement and encourage colleagues to involve students in their presentations.

We are seeking:

We are seeking papers, innovative workshops, presentations, posters and engaging debates that address one or more of the conference themes, aligned to either of the strands: 1. Developing the effective student journey (curriculum design & delivery, transition)
2 . Developing the international university (internationalising the curriculum, international student transition, enriching the student and staff experience)
3. Using students as agents of change, (student representation, student voice, student experience)
4. Designing opportunities for nurturing the inquiring mind (pedagogical design and methodology)
5. Developing enterprising and creative cultures (learning spaces, programme and course design, teaching and assessment methodologies)
6. Engaging employers (designing for employability, work placements & internships, alumni)
7. Embedding life-wide learning (creating other opportunities for developing graduate attributes, i.e., sports, societies, community based)
8. Enhancing career development (PG CERT HE, CPD)
