A key part of our mission at Keystone Symposia is to extend the reach of the latest scientific and medical discoveries to diverse audiences around the globe, so they may benefit all of humanity. In this spirit, we are offering individuals from low- and middle- income countries (LMICs) FREE access to all OnDemand content from our eSymposia virtual meeting series.
Virtual meetings democratize science by removing economic and geographic barriers to participation, enabling the inclusion of more diverse voices and perspectives in conversations at the forefront of science and medicine. In addition, information that is typically confined behind closed doors at the meeting hall, can now be easily disseminated to global audiences. Access to these scientific insights, tools and technologies is critical to drive science and medicine forward in all parts of the world, in addition to our own.
By providing free OnDemand access to LMIC individuals, we aim to empower everyone around the world with this knowledge. From students, to doctors, to public health experts, we hope these resources will enable diverse peoples to pursue their research and career goals, and to aspire to even greater heights.
On Demand Access to eSymposia includes:
- Keynote & plenary session recordings for the latest scientific advances from field leaders
- ePosters for insights into new research directions and rising stars in the field
- Session forums for extended Q/As with speakers
- Career roundtable & meet-the-editor panel recordings for critical career advancement and publishing advice
- Job board for new career opportunities… and more!
- Unlimited Access to meeting materials for at least 9 months after the meeting concludes, so you can delve in at your convenience, and revisit any content as often as you like.

|Vaccinology in the Age of Pandemics: Strategies Against COVID-19 & Other Global Threats|
|As the world faces the greatest global pandemic of our lifetimes, the critical importance of vaccine development has come to the forefront of scientific and public audiences alike. his seminal conference covers advances in vaccine technologies and strategies that have guided the unprecedented COVID-19 vaccine development efforts. In this eSymposia On Demand, discover how these new techniques are transforming vaccine capabilities, and setting us up for success against COVID-19 and many other global health threats.|
|Advances in Cancer Immunotherapy|
|This landmark virtual event brought together immunologists, cancer biologists, basic scientists and clinicians to collectively address current challenges and opportunities in cancer immunotherapy, including (1) mechanisms of activity, and resistance against immune inhibitory checkpoint blockade and T-cell engineering strategies, (2) how to best combine these therapeutics for sustained clinical success (3) understanding the tumor microenvironment to pave the way for new approaches. The program highlights powerful new methodologies, data-analysis techniques, and tools to integrate high throughput and patient-derived sample data to empower translational advances.|
|Genomic Stability and DNA Repair|
|In this On Demand eSymposia, world experts discussed emerging mechanisms of DNA repair & genome stability as it relates to human physiology, cancers and therapeutic opportunities. The program covers the importance of classical processes of DNA replication and homology-directed DNA repair in genome integrity, while also highlighting the emerging aspects of the DNA damage response involving noncoding RNA, chromatin recognition and organization, and catastrophic rearrangements that emanate from mitosis.|
|Myeloid Cells and Innate Immunity in Solid Tumors|
|Recent research shows that myeloid cells create major roadblocks to cancer eradication by promoting immune suppression, angiogenesis and resistance to immune therapy. This virtual conference OnDemand presents emerging research on the influence of various myeloid cell subsets to tumor growth and metastasis. Discover new insights that challenge paradigms about macrophage and granulocyte origins in tumors, links between metabolism and function, and mechanisms by which myeloid cells control immunity.|
|Proteomics in Cell Biology and Disease|
|This meeting covers latest advances and innovations in methodology and strategies to overcome current limitations in proteomics and push the boundaries of proteomic capabilities. Addressing advances in sample preparation, instrumentation, single cell analysis, multiplexing, omics integration and bioinformatic/computational analysis, this meeting provides the tools to enable more powerful analytics for translational research.|
|RNA Editing and Modifications: From Biology to Therapy|
|The development of new technologies has rapidly transformed our understanding of the reasons for and regulation of RNA editing and modifications. This program covers newfound roles in development and stem cells, as well as implications in diseases from infections to cancer. Along with scientific and technological advances, the content explores emerging therapeutic applications and transcriptome engineering efforts that could provide entirely new medical tools to treat disease.|
|Autophagy: Mechanisms and Disease|
|This on demand virtual meeting addresses current advances in understanding autophagy mechanisms and regulation in the context of physiology, pathology and therapeutic potential. The program integrates molecular and translational aspects of autophagy research, covering topics from the discovery of selective and non-canonical pathways, and new insights into crosstalk between autophagy and various organelles, to roles in disease and new therapeutic opportunities.|
Preservation and Alteration of Cellular Identity
|By bringing together leading scientists in stem cell, developmental, regenerative and cancer biology, this virtual meeting explores the mechanisms that underlie plasticity in different tissues and contexts, from embryonic development, to regeneration, cancer stem cells, inflammation and more. The interdisciplinary program highlights common principles and unique features of plasticity across healthy and disease states, and investigates therapeutic opportunities to harness these processes.|
|Optimizing Nutrition for Maternal, Newborn|
and Child Health
|Nutrition during pregnancy and early infancy influences growth, development, and metabolic programming with impacts on health and disease later in life. Despite its importance, research on maternal and child nutrition around the world is woefully lacking. This program addresses the unique nutritional challenges of women and infants in low-and middle-income countries, integrating molecular, clinical and public health perspectives & expertise from placental & breastmilk biologists to public health leaders.|
