Also, before heading out on the roads, especially I-70, make sure to check out the traffic.<b>*** New for 2016*** the Colorado Department of Transportation will have stricter enforcement of the state's Passenger Vehicle Traction & Chain Laws which states: </b>If weather conditions require, CDOT can implement Passenger Vehicle Traction and Chain Laws. Motorists will be alerted to an active Traction or Chain Law by highway signage. Traction Law (Code 15) - During an active Traction Law, also known as a Code 15, motorists will need to have either snow tires, tires with the mud/snow (M/S) designation, or a four-wheel drive vehicle — all tires must have a minimum one-eighth inch tread. Passenger Vehicle Chain Law (Code 16) - During severe winter storms, CDOT will implement a Passenger Vehicle Chain Law, also known as a Code 16 — this is the final safety measure before the highway is closed. During a Passenger Vehicle Chain Law, every vehicle on the roadway is required to have chains or an alternative traction device (like AutoSock). Fines - Motorists driving with inadequate equipment during a Passenger Vehicle Traction or Chain Law could be fined more than $130. If a motorist blocks the roadway because they have inadequate equipment during a Passenger Vehicle Traction or Chain Law, they could be fined more than $650.</li> </ul> <p><b>Click here for a map of Keystone Resort.</b> <b>Click here for Floorplan of the Conference Area</b></p> <h2>Keystone Resort</h2> <p>The food included will be:</p> <ul> <li>a buffet breakfast each day of the meeting except departure day</li> <li>coffee breaks</li> <li>Social Hour with light snacks during poster sessions</li> </ul> <p>The food offered varies by site.

There has been a leap in our molecular understanding of disease and disease risk, yet our application of these insights to disease prevention and monitoring is still rudimentary. This conference will assemble leading basic and clinical researchers to share and discuss the latest systems-wide data in different areas and is the continuation of the highly successful EMBL-Stanford Personalised Health series that offers an unusually rich opportunity to hear from, and interact with, leaders in the field on the efforts towards molecular approaches to personalised health.</p> <h2>Session Topics</h2> <ul> <li>Big data and genotype to disease predictions</li> <li>Clinical, ethical and societal issues</li> <li>Precision medicine in practice</li> </ul> <h3>Founder partners</h3> Sun, 08/25/2019 - 22:08 1399262 1399262 2020 Biology of Acute Respiratory Infection Conference GRC https://medfrogs.com/conference/2020-biology-of-acute-respiratory-infection-conference-grc-1399504 <p>GRC attendees have received calls and emails from individuals or businesses claiming to be affiliated with hotels in the area of GRC conference venues.  Some claim to be authorized by GRC. These callers and businesses are not authorized by GRC.  Details are available by clicking here.</p> <p>© 2019 Gordon Research Conferences</p> <p><em>The trademarks GORDON RESEARCH CONFERENCES, GORDON RESEARCH SEMINARS, GRC, GRS and POWER HOUR are trademarks owned by Gordon Research Conferences</em></p> Sun, 08/25/2019 - 22:06 1399504 1399504 Careers | Jazz Pharmaceuticals | Global Franchise Lead - Oncology in Palo Alto, https://medfrogs.com/job/careers-jazz-pharmaceuticals-global-franchise-lead-oncology-in-palo-alto-1385617 <p> </p> <h2>Overview</h2> <p>Jazz Pharmaceuticals is an international biopharmaceutical company focused on improving patients’ lives by identifying, developing and commercializing meaningful products that address unmet medical needs.
