Keystone Symposia: Lipidomics and Bioactive Lipids in Metabolism and Disease
ID
833364
Dates
26 Feb 2017 - 02 Mar 2017
Location
Tahoe City, California, United States
Abstract
The ability to analyze large numbers of lipids from different categories (e.g., fatty acyls, glycerolipids, sphingolipids and sterols) has greatly advanced our understanding of their biochemical functions and roles in disease, but has also created challenges of scale. This Keystone Symposia meeting will cover areas of lipid research that have been particularly impacted by these technologies. It will specifically address the challenge of managing the large data sets generated by lipidomic technologies and conceptually studying them given how interconnected and cross-regulated lipid metabolic pathways are. Bringing together an outstanding group of scientists with expertise in the lipid categories as well as in lipidomic approaches, it will summarize recent findings for the major lipid categories from state-of-the-art technologies and lay the foundation for a broader understanding of new methods and the technical capabilities and limitations of these methods, as well as where better approaches are needed.

Aging — 2nd Interventions in Aging Conference: Understanding Mechanisms & Compressing Morbidity in Aging Humans
ID
843027
Dates
02 Mar 2017 - 05 Mar 2017
Location
Cancun, Mexico
Abstract
A plethora of genetic, dietary and pharmacological interventions can extend healthy lifespan in laboratory animals, and can delay or ameliorate diverse aging-related diseases. Many of the signalling pathways involved are evolutionarily conserved, and are starting to be implicated in human aging. This raises the intriguing possibility of performing preventative medicine against the chronic diseases of our time by targeting the main risk factor for all of them, namely aging. Two important current challenges in the field are (1) to understand the downstream pathways by which longevity interventions combat age-related loss of function and pathology, and (2) to translate the findings into the extension of human healthspan.

Keystone Symposia: Bile Acid Receptors as Signal Integrators in Liver and Metabolism
ID
833352
Dates
03 Mar 2017 - 07 Mar 2017
Location
Monterey, California, United States
Abstract
In the last decade, bile acids have enjoyed a real renaissance, sparked by the identification at the turn of the millennium of their dedicated receptors, FXR and TGR5. This has been instrumental in revealing the key role bile acids play in regulating liver and metabolic homeostasis, transforming them from detergents facilitating the intestinal absorption of nutrients into versatile hormones. Signaling through FXR and TGR5 indeed modulates several metabolic pathways, regulating not only bile acid synthesis and enterohepatic recirculation, but also lipid, glucose and energy homeostasis. In addition, FXR and TGR5 agonists display anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic properties, making these agents interesting candidates for the treatment of several liver and metabolic diseases, including nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). With the hepatitis C virus infection nearly solved, NASH is already a medical problem of epidemic proportions poised to become by 2020 the leading indication for liver transplantation in the US. This conference will review genetics, structure and functions of bile acid receptors and will explore the intricate interactions among gut microbiota, bile acids and liver disease, as well as the multiple bidirectional signals along the gut-liver axis. Intriguingly, FXR agonists, like the bile acid derivative obeticholic acid, could have a beneficial role in the treatment of NASH by decreasing hepatic lipogenesis, steatosis and insulin resistance, while also inhibiting inflammatory and fibrogenic responses able to promote liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The conference therefore aims at integrating basic, translational and clinical aspects of bile acid receptors, bringing together an interdisciplinary group of scientists to discuss the state of the art and propose new avenues of investigation in this active and dynamic field.

Keystone Symposia - Type I Interferon: Friend and Foe Alike
ID
825488
Dates
19 Mar 2017 - 23 Mar 2017
Location
Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract
While cytokines play critical roles in host defense and immune homeostasis, they in other settings can be key mediators of inflammatory pathology. This important functional dichotomy is perhaps best exemplified in the diverse activities of Type I interferon(s) in health and disease. Type I IFNs regulate a broad family of genes that either stimulate or inhibit immune function and in so doing have host protective or detrimental effects. Thus, while Type I IFNs are well-known for their anti-viral activity and stimulation of effector T cell responses, they can also promote autoimmune, bacterial and even certain viral diseases. Understanding this contextual dependency is crucial for unraveling the pathogenesis of Type I IFN-dependent diseases and for the design of interferon-based therapies and will be the central focus of the meeting. The conference will open with talks presenting an overview of Type I IFN genes and their regulation, innate recognition mechanisms and signaling pathways for Type I IFN induction and Mendelian-based interferonopathies. Additional sessions will focus on the role of Type I IFN in viral, bacterial and autoimmune diseases. The symposium will conclude with a discussion of the mechanistic and contextual factors that determine the beneficial versus deleterious outcome of Type I IFN induction and how this information can be applied to the development of targeted therapeutic interventions. Because of the timeliness of the topic, the conference should draw a broad audience from the fields of cytokine biology, inflammation, infectious disease and translational medicine and attract a solid industry representation.

Keystone Symposia - Gastrointestinal Control of Metabolism
ID
825338
Dates
09 May 2017 - 13 May 2017
Location
Copenhagen, Denmark
Abstract
The twin epidemics of obesity and diabetes pose difficult challenges to the health of growing populations around the globe. A wide array of recent data link the gastrointestinal tract to the etiology of these diseases. Moreover, some of the most innovative approaches to treat obesity, diabetes and related metabolic disorders involve direct manipulation of the GI tract or manipulation of the signals that come from the GI tract. To this end, an important goal of this meeting will be to highlight a wide range of methodologies that can be brought to understand GI function as it relates to obesity and diabetes. One of the primary factors slowing research on this topic is that investigators with interest in GI function and metabolic disease come from a wide range of disciplines that are not generally represented at scientific meetings. A key goal of this meeting is to bring together leading investigators from around the globe. Putting investigators who have been revealing function of the GI tract together with those sophisticated in metabolism – as well as encouraging early-career investigators to delve into this field – will be crucial to accelerate current work looking for novel therapeutic strategies. An important advance in our understanding of the GI tract is the appreciation of it as a major endocrine organ. A key component of the action of those GI hormones is their interaction with both the peripheral and central nervous system. Consequently, this meeting will be held jointly with a meeting that focuses on the “Neuronal Control of Appetite, Metabolism and Weight.” This is an ideal opportunity to bring together those who study how the GI tract generates these signals with those who study the neural systems that are targets for these signals.

Keystone Symposia - Integrating Metabolism and Immunity
ID
825356
Dates
29 May 2017 - 02 Jun 2017
Location
Dublin, Ireland
Abstract
The coordination of metabolic programs with immune cell fate is a fundamental event in immunity. Immune cells are known for their ability to rapidly transition from resting to activated states in response to external stimuli. Typically, their activation is accompanied by increased expression of large panels of immune effector molecules, and in the case of lymphocytes, is also accompanied by extensive and rapid cellular proliferation. Recent studies have revealed the fundamental importance of metabolic reprogramming, including dynamic regulation of aerobic glycolysis (the Warburg effect), lipid synthesis and degradation, and mitochondrial activity, in immune cell activation and differentiation and the outcome of immune responses. This process depends upon the interplay between the metabolic machinery and immune signaling and transcriptional pathways, and is further shaped by the availability of metabolic substrates and nutrients within the cells and in the microenvironment, including those produced by microbiota. The critical link between metabolism and immunity is indicated by findings that aberrant immune cell metabolism not only affects inflammatory responses and adaptive immunity, but also contributes to metabolic disorders. The goal of this Keystone Symposia meeting is to bring together leading investigators working on metabolism (organismal, cellular, and microbial metabolism) and immunobiology. Additional opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be provided by the discussion on central metabolism and the contribution of key metabolic substrates by the microbiota. The latest discoveries will be discussed in the context of basic biology and how it can be exploited to design new therapeutics targeting inflammatory and metabolic disorders.

FASEB SRC — Regulation and Function of Small GTPases
ID
871126
Dates
11 Jun 2017 - 16 Jun 2017
Location
West Palm Beach, Florida, United States
Abstract
This SRC provides an interactive forum that covers the latest developments in the small GTPase field and presents the newest technological advancements that are being used to unravel the complex roles of small GTPases in human health and disease. Small GTPases (e.g. Ras, Rac, Rho, Cdc42, Rab, Rap, Rheb and Ral) are essential for key cellular processes such as cell differentiation, proliferation, and migration, as well as the regulation of subcellular events such as vesicle trafficking. These critical functions of small GTPases make them important participants in a wide variety of physiological and pathophysiological processes. The founding member of the small GTPase superfamily, Ras, is the most commonly mutated oncogene in human cancers, and many other small GTPases (including RhoA, Rac1, Rab5, Rheb, and RalA) also play fundamental roles in cancer development and progression. Due to these important oncogenic functions of small GTPases, there is a strong cancer theme underlying this meeting. However, small GTPases also participate in other biomedically important events, including the promotion of vascular diseases, immunological abnormalities, mental disorders, and metabolic conditions. For these reasons, progress from a number of fields in addition to cancer biology will be highlighted, including neurobiology, developmental biology, computational biology, and membrane biophysics to ensure that we are leveraging and learning from discoveries made in important related fields. The main objective of the meeting is to stimulate cross-pollination of ideas among researchers investigating basic biochemical mechanisms, cell and tissue biology, and translational models to define the diverse functions of small GTPases.

FASEB SRC — Rapid Signaling and Genomic Steroid Hormone Actions in Health and Disease
ID
871169
Dates
11 Jun 2017 - 16 Jun 2017
Location
Snowmass Village, Colorado, United States
Abstract
Steroid hormone action impacts many aspects of physiology and disease states. Although scientists in the field traditionally focused on how nuclear steroid receptors mediate gene transcription, it is now established that these same receptors exist and function at various cellular locations including the cell membrane and mitochondria. Thus this conference focuses on the latest advances and approaches to understand how signaling from extra-nuclear and nuclear steroid receptors integrate to produce genomic and non-genomic biological effects. This year's SRC focuses on steroid hormone action in cancer, metabolism, neuroscience, cardiovascular effects, ion channels, lung disease. Many new speakers will give talks and the opportunity for trainees to present their work in oral and poster sessions will be emphasized as well. Most importantly, many productive collaborations between scientists, junior and senior, have occurred from the interactions during the meeting. Junior scientists and trainees are especially encouraged to interact with senior faculty, in multiple venues that encourage this during the meeting. Travel funds for trainees are also a priority of this meeting.

FASEB SRC — The TGF-β Superfamily: Signaling in Development and Disease
ID
871085
Dates
09 Jul 2017 - 14 Jul 2017
Location
Lisbon, Portugal
Abstract
This SRC is an important and unique scientific conference where the pivotal role of TGF-β family members, including TGF-βs, nodal, activins, BMPs, and GDFs, in developmental, homeostatic, and pathological processes is explored through formal talks, poster sessions, and interactive and intensive scientific discussion sessions. Expansion of this field into previously uncharted areas of biology and human pathogenesis is exemplary, and in part, due to high throughput efforts that serendipitously bring scientists to the world of TGF-β. Program topics include tissue morphogenesis in development and disease, signaling networks and crosstalk, inflammation, vasculature and tissue transformation, tissue microenvironment dynamics in disease, therapeutic frontiers of TGF-β signaling, and homeostatic and metabolic control of growth and disease. This conference will seek to strengthen interactions between those scientists studying molecular mechanisms and those studying development and disease, and will welcome scientists who recently entered the TGF-β field. The conference program planned so far is truly global and represents the breadth of TGF-β family biology. A significant number of submitted abstracts will be selected for short talks. The oral presentations together with three poster sessions and the recreational afternoon sessions will ensure a good blend between young and more advanced investigators, students and postdoctoral fellows that can use this time productively towards building collaborations and scientific exchanges.

FASEB SRC — Growth Hormone/Prolactin Family in Biology and Disease
ID
876989
Dates
23 Jul 2017 - 28 Jul 2017
Location
Steamboat Springs, CO, United States
Abstract
This SRC will bring together international scientists from academia and industry for lively discussions on the latest developments in the growth hormone (GH)/prolactin (PRL) family of hormones and their clinical applications. Beyond their classic roles in growth and lactation, these related hormones are increasingly recognized regulators of metabolism, stem cells, aging, behavior, cancer, and perinatal health of both mother and child, via actions on diverse target tissues. Moreover, they influence major associated health problems, such as obesity, diabetes, aging, mental health and multiple cancers. Our goal is to bring together senior and junior investigators working on all aspects of these hormones, from cell biology, genetics, developmental biology, neurobiology, metabolism, physiology, to their clinical and agricultural applications. Together, we will increase our understanding of how GH/PRL family proteins modulate health and disease processes, forge new collaborations, and accelerate the discovery of new pharmacologic approaches. Speakers from the GH/PRL community and related fields from around the world will share breaking data on a variety of cutting edge topics including genetic mutations in synthesis and signaling pathways, newly identified targets, novel mediators and nodes of critical crosstalk with other players, pituitary stem cells, interactions between peripheral hormones, hypothalamus and brain, and new drug targets/pre-clinical studies.

Abstract
Intestinal lipid transport and metabolism is of high interest as deregulation of these pathways can directly contribute to several pathologies such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The field of intestinal lipid transport and metabolism remains one of the most dynamic areas in biomedical sciences, for both basic scientific inquiry and translational research. It reaches across the pathogenesis and treatment of major chronic diseases and includes leading-edge scientific technologies in human genomics, proteomics, lipidomics, bioinformatics, systems biology, and new biological model systems. This SRC will include emerging themes and cutting-edge concepts within the field to provide new knowledge that can ultimately be translated into clinical benefit for millions of patients not adequately addressed by existing therapeutic strategies. The Conference will provide a unique forum in which diverse scientists at all levels can enrich their knowledge base, network, encourage new collaborations and new ideas, and thus move forward the field of lipid sciences. The major themes of the meeting include lipid transfer proteins, systemic metabolism of intestinal lipoproteins, cholesterol metabolism, lipid droplets formation and mobilization, integrative physiological studies of lipids and lipoproteins, intestinal lipid metabolism in other organisms, chylomicron assembly, and enzymes in intestinal lipid synthesis. Overall, the goal of the Intestinal Lipid Transport and Metabolism FASEB Research Conference is to bring together a broad spectrum of scientists with a shared interest in understanding and applying knowledge of intestinal function and lipid metabolism to improve public health.

The growing awareness that racial/ethnic minority groups experienced inferior health outcomes when compared to the overall population led to an increased focus and interest from the U.S. Congress and Federal Government in implementing actions focused on addressing health disparities in this country. Consequently, there has been an increased multidisciplinary research effort in addressing problems associated with health disparities especially on diseases of the cardiovascular system. In recognition of the need to put the issue of health disparities front and center of health care delivery in the US, this SRC will focus on a multi-disciplinary approach to addressing health disparities and inequities in the United States.

FASEB SRC — Molecular Mechanisms of Immune Cell Development and Function
ID
876952
Dates
30 Jul 2017 - 04 Aug 2017
Location
Snowmass Village, Colorado, United States
Abstract
This SRC will include a keynote talk by Dan Litmann, a leader in the field, and formal sessions on (1) Early lymphocyte progenitors, (2) Mechanisms that underpin lymphocyte development, (3) Transcriptional regulation of lymphocyte differentiation, (4) Antigen receptor assembly, (5) Molecular and physical mechanisms that promote lymphocyte cell fate, (6) B cell activation and neoplasia, (7) The regulation of the immune responses, 8) Innate immunity and (9) Molecular pathways in innate immunity. These sessions are each anchored by 4 invited speakers with 3 shorter talks chosen from abstracts. The meeting will also include two poster sessions and two workshops consisting of short presentations chosen from submitted abstracts. By highlighting common and contrasting uses of similar mechanisms, the meeting will reveal unexpected synergies between areas of molecular immunology that are traditionally considered distinct. Such discoveries are enhanced by the program’s emphasis on mixing national and international experts with young scientists, including postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, among the presenters in an open atmosphere of scientific exchange. Finally, a large number of oral presentations will be selected from the abstracts.

Neuroepigenetics and Epitranscriptomics
ID
868449
Dates
19 Aug 2017 - 26 Aug 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
Many cellular constituents in the human brain permanently exit from the cell cycle during pre- or early postnatal development, but little is known about epigenetic regulation of neuronal and glial epigenomes during maturation and aging, including changes in cognitive and psychiatric disease. Normal brain development and function is dependent on highly regulated mechanisms governing DNA cytosine methylation and hydroxymethylation, and probably more than 100 residue-specific histone modifications associated with gene expression and silencing and various other functional chromatin states. Equally important is the 3-dimensional organization of the chromosomal material inside the cell nucleus, commonly referred to as the ‘3D Genome’, with chromosomal loopings potentially bypassing hundreds of kilobases on the linear genome to enable promoter-enhancer interactions and other mechanisms important for transcriptional regulation. Combined exploration of epigenomic and 3D genome chromosomal conformation maps maps is likely to illuminate the role of regulatory non-coding sequences in neuropsychiatric disease.

FASEB SRC — Lysophospholipid and Related Mediators - From Bench to Clinic
ID
877020
Dates
20 Aug 2017 - 25 Aug 2017
Location
New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
Abstract
This is the leading international conference in lysophospholipid biology, attracting participants from all continents. This SRC will focus on the physiological and pathophysiological roles of sphingosine 1-phosphate, lysophosphatidic acid and other lysophospholipids. New and established basic scientists, clinical researchers, academics and industry partners are brought together to share expertise and foster collaboration, thereby accelerating the pace of scientific discovery and facilitating translation from early research to clinical practice. Indeed, the development of Fingolimod, the first oral treatment for multiple sclerosis, is an excellent example of this, as first reported at this conference in 2001. Late-breaking scientific advances and junior investigators will feature on the final program, which includes keynote lectures, the Journal of Lipid Research Lectureship and a careers workshop for early career scientists.

Synaptic and Structural Plasticity
ID
868382
Dates
26 Aug 2017 - 02 Sep 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
Different forms of synaptic plasticity occurring at the molecular, cellular and circuit level are the focus of this Advanced Course. The Course will start with critical analysis of the evolution of the study of various forms of long-term potentiation and long-term depression and what is generally accepted about their basic mechanisms, including a discussion of modern approaches to understanding the mechanisms and functions of synaptic plasticity. A wide range of areas will be covered, including: (a) the molecular mechanisms underlying different forms of short-term synaptic facilitation and depression that last no more than a few minutes and are typically mediated by presynaptic mechanisms that alter neurotransmitter release (b) the function of key postsynaptic proteins found in the postsynaptic density as well as the role of neurotransmitter receptor regulation during long-term synaptic and experience-dependent plasticity (c) the methodological approaches that have been recently developed to measure the dynamic localization of synaptic elements at nanoscale resolution and how these nanoscale morphological and functional properties regulate synapses (d) the role of neurogenesis throughout life as a crucial mechanism underlying learning-induced circuits in the dentate gyrus and the olfactory bulb (e) how these forms of plasticity integrate to result in the restructuring of entire neuronal circuits. Participation in the Advanced Course will provide an essential conceptual and methodological framework for anyone intending to pursue rigorous research. The advantages and disadvantages of each method, preparation and recording technique are considered in relation to the specific scientific questions being asked. The Advanced Course will not only develop participants’ skill but will also provide plenty of time for informal gatherings with some of the world leaders in synaptic plasticity, designed to foster brainstorming across different disciplines.

Insulin — Insulin and exercise signalling for glucose homeostasis and metabolic health
ID
873741
Dates
06 Sep 2017 - 08 Sep 2017
Location
Bath, United Kingdom
Abstract
It has become very evident that there are multiple-levels of interaction between the insulin signalling pathway leading to stimulation of glucose transport in insulin-target tissues and the signalling events that occur downstream of exercise and dietary inputs. The aim of this timely meeting is to generate valuable discussion focused on the multiple pathways leading to stimulation of glucose transport in insulin-target tissues and address the mechanistic biochemical basis for these interactions.

Single Cell Omics
ID
868402
Dates
17 Sep 2017 - 24 Sep 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
Neuroscience has entered a critical phase, with several international large-scale efforts devoted to the analysis and understanding of brain function. Studies exploiting new technologies for defining the connections in the brain, driving neuronal activity and modeling of neuronal processing are each hampered by our incomplete knowledge of the brain’s constituent parts. Fortunately, a bevy of single cell analyses are now being deployed to better understand the cells that constitute the functioning nervous system. These approaches offer insights into how cells function individually as the building blocks for understanding how they work in ensemble to create functional pathways. A set of emerging tools are available to assess the molecular and cell biology of single cells, including genomic analyses of somatic mutations, epigenomics to explain the influence of the environment upon genome expression, and transcriptomics to gain insight into the capacity of a cell to synthesize proteins and modulate its environment. Powerful technologies permit a variety of cell constituents to be addressed, including proteins, post-translational modifications, peptides and metabolites. Novel biosensors offer parallel analyses of cellular physiological states, reporting on the pH, membrane voltage and metabolic state. Multiplexed together, such methodologies offer a far more complete biological understanding than the more typical gene expression analyses, providing a rich picture of each single cell’s biology in their normal context – information needed to fully interpret the meaning of results from transcriptomics and proteomics studies.This Advanced Course is designed to provide the foundational knowledge needed to critically evaluate the design and execution of single cell omic studies, through daily lectures by the Faculty, critical reading of papers and extensive didactic discussion sessions. In the sessions, discussion will focus on the proper framing of scientific questions to best utilize these techniques, the limitations and advantages of each technique, and what the data can tell us about neuronal function.

The Neuroscience of Obesity
ID
868467
Dates
17 Sep 2017 - 24 Sep 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
Significant progress has been made in recent years in the understanding the role of the nervous system in obesity. Not only several different neuronal pathways, neurotransmitters and hormones have been identified as major players in the regulation of feeding and body weight, bu also energy balance in mammals is controlled by a complex network of interacting feedback mechanisms that involve peripheral organs in addition to higher brain centers. This Advanced Course will provide conceptual- and cutting edge technological framework for state-of-the-art of neuroscience on energy metabolism. The Faculty represents diverse expertise in molecular, cellular, circuit and behavioral approaches on contemporary questions regarding the role of the brain in systemic metabolism regulation and how the periphery affects complex brain functions via neuronal circuits and brain cells.
