Keystone Symposia: Mitochondria Communication
ID
829998
Dates
14 Jan 2017 - 18 Jan 2017
Location
Taos, New Mexico, United States
Abstract
Understanding how mitochondria communicate within the cell will provide important clues to elucidate its roles in normal cell physiology, as well as numerous diseases such as diabetes, neurodegeneration and cancer. The classical view of mitochondria is of an organelle that interacts with other features of cell biology primarily through the provision and consumption of metabolic intermediates and energetic products. Emerging evidence from many areas of science is accumulating to suggest that mitochondria play much more active roles in communication with other organelles, determining cell and organismal behavior. This conference will focus on these integrated behaviors and the resulting communication. The sessions will be organized around the different nodes, modes and destinations of that signaling. It will bring together people and ideas from different areas of cell biology and physiology that typically do not attend the same conferences, resulting in the development of new collaborations and concepts.

Keystone Symposia: Diabetes
ID
830094
Dates
22 Jan 2017 - 26 Jan 2017
Location
Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract
Obesity is a growing worldwide epidemic, increasing co-morbid conditions, such as diabetes. The joint meetings on “Obesity and Adipose Tissue Biology” and “Diabetes: Emerging Concepts in Metabolic Signaling and Disease” are aimed to foster cross-talk between these research areas. Adipose tissue is an endocrine organ that is both controlled by and sends signals to the brain and other organs. In addition, obesity causes an inflammatory state in the adipose tissue. The recognition that brown/beige adipose tissue is active in adult humans has triggered interest in understanding the physiology and relative importance of these tissues. Exercise and bariatric surgery are known to elicit profound metabolic benefits in type 2 diabetes, although the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. This meeting will bring together cell biologists, biochemists, geneticists, physiologists, drug developers and clinical researchers, thereby facilitating knowledge exchange and interactions leading to elucidation of better treatments for obesity and diabetes. Specifically, it will examine recent advances in understanding of brown/beige adipose tissue function; obesity-induced adipose inflammation; control of adipose tissue, appetite, and energy metabolism; endocrine and paracrine signaling via secreted factors; molecular mechanisms of metabolic signaling; emerging topics, including long noncoding RNA and gut microbiome; and approaches to drug development and the treatment of obesity and diabetes.

Keystone Symposia: Inflammation-Driven Cancer – Mechanisms to Therapy
ID
833447
Dates
05 Feb 2017 - 09 Feb 2017
Location
Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract
Carcinogenesis is the result of a complex interplay of cell intrinsic and extrinsic processes that promote genomic instability, sustained proliferation, resistance to apoptosis, reprogramming and reorganization of the stromal environment. An immune cell infiltrate is a characteristic feature of many tumors, and it is increasingly appreciated that immunity and inflammation are key determinants of tumor development and progression. This meeting will consider the molecular and environmental factors that shape the extensive cross-talk between immune, stromal and cancer cells in the tumor microenvironment. Positioned at the interface of cancer cell signaling, stem cells, inflammatory pathways and microbial drivers, this meeting should provide new insights into the factors that control the balance between tumor-promoting and tumor-suppressive immunity and inflammation and how this can be applied in the prevention and treatment of cancer. The meeting will attract a multi-disciplinary group of cancer cell biologists, immunologists and inflammation biologists and will be of interest to basic and clinical scientists alike.

Keystone Symposia: Lipidomics and Bioactive Lipids in Metabolism and Disease
ID
833408
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
842950
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
833330
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
825433
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
825305
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.

Neuroepigenetics and Epitranscriptomics
ID
868427
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.

Synaptic and Structural Plasticity
ID
868448
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.

Single Cell Omics

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.

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.
