Prof. Irvin Modlin was Vice Chair of Surgery at Yale and director of the neuroendocrine pathobiology group for 35 years. He has authored 500 publications and 16 books including, the biology of Acid peptic disease, neuroendocrine tumors, laparoscopic surgery, histories of the philosophy of science and medicine, the evolution of medicine in cities and Dutch art. His scientific interests include proton pump regulation in parietal cells, ECL and EC cell purification and molecular pathobiology. Current investigations focus on multianalyte circulating transcriptomic analysis and mathematical algorhythmic modelling in the prediction of disease status and therapeutic efficacy. His present work addresses the philosophical application of Borgian fabulism to scientific realism in the assessment of the comparable ontology of unobservable entities. He will hold the talk "NETomic Analysis Based Liquid Biopsy: Beyond the Seven Bridges of Konigsberg" during Session 10 on Friday, 9 March 2018 from 14:45 - 15:05.

Prof. Mark Rubin is a leader in the fields of prostate cancer biology and
precision medicine as it applies to all cancers. Rubin’s laboratory led a series of landmark studies defining distinct molecular features of prostate cancer, revealing pathways that are perturbed and drive different types of this cancer. Prof. Rubin has translated many of his genomic discoveries into clinical tests that are currently patented and standardly used in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. In May 2017, Prof. Rubin joined the University of Bern as Professor and Director of the Department for Biomedical Research and also as Project Leader for Precision Medicine at the University Hospital of Bern. He will talk about "Neuroendocrine Transformation of Adenocarcinoma as Exemplified by Prostate Cancer?" during Session 1 on Thursday, 8 March 2018 from 09:30 - 09:55.
