Keystone Symposia - Connectomics
ID
825317
Dates
05 Mar 2017 - 08 Mar 2017
Location
Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract
The emerging field of connectomics comprises extensive efforts to map patterns of brain connectivity, to represent these patterns with the tools of network science, and to explore the relation of brain connectivity and dynamics to behavior and cognition. Importantly, these efforts span multiple scales of brain organization, from synaptic connectivity among individual neurons, to comprehensive maps of circuits, neuronal populations, and projections among brain regions. An integrative multi-scale framework for mapping, analyzing and modeling connectome data sets is lacking. This Keystone Symposia meeting aims to narrow this important gap, by: 1) Fostering scientific exchange among otherwise siloed researchers studying connectomes in different organisms at different scales with different measurement techniques; 2) Promoting approaches that apply across scales, for example by leveraging the tools of network science; 3) Emphasizing the need to move beyond descriptive accounts of connectomes, to model-based prediction and control; 4) Providing a unique opportunity for pre- and postdoctoral trainees to engage with connectomics leaders and present their work. Anticipated outcomes include a multi-scale framework for description, prediction and control of connectomes; innovative computational methods for statistical analysis and modeling of connectome data sets; and new collaborations among participating researchers and trainees. The meeting will have transformative impact by creating new relationships among investigators and by seeding a new integrative research agenda centered on the structure and dynamics of brain connectivity.

Keystone Symposia - Engineered Cells and Tissues as Platforms for Discovery and Therapy
ID
825218
Dates
09 Mar 2017 - 12 Mar 2017
Location
Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Abstract
Tissue engineering, cell therapies and regenerative medicine have witnessed accelerated progress over the past decade. Fueled by fundamental discoveries in iPS, progenitor, and developmental cell biology, cells are now used as building blocks to create model systems, as testing platforms for drug interventions and as active therapeutics. High-throughput production of various types of “microtissues” or “organoids” is making increasing contributions to our understanding of human development, disease and repair. This Keystone Symposia meeting will highlight these rapidly emerging cell-based tools for fundamental and applied discovery. Culture systems ranging from simple cell cluster organoids, to highly advanced cell-electronic composites, will be discussed. In addition, the encouraging progress that is being made in cell-based therapies across a range of organs and diseases will be featured. The goal of this meeting is to provide a state-of-the-art review of both pluripotent and differentiated cells as tools for discovery and therapy. A broad range of cell types and therapeutic areas will be included.

FASEB SRC — Mechanism and Regulation of Prokaryotic Transcription
ID
877013
Dates
25 Jun 2017 - 30 Jun 2017
Location
Saxtons River, VT, United States
Abstract
This SRC will focus on the process of transcription in prokaryotes, from structure/function investigations to transcription networks and system level regulation. In all organisms, controlling the process of transcription is fundamental to gene expression, gene regulation, and development. RNA polymerase, which transcribes genomic DNA into RNA, is the complex protein machine that performs transcription. Additional factors that alter initiation, elongation, or termination of transcription program an amazing variety of developmental pathways. Biochemical and genetic investigations of transcription regulation have a long history of revealing the myriad ways that gene expression can be controlled. In recent years this work has been augmented by the availability of atomic-level structures of prokaryotic and eukaryotic RNA polymerases and transcription factors in combination with systems-wide profiling of gene regulatory events. Together this work has revealed that many similar structure-function relationships underlie the workings of the transcriptional machinery from the simplest bacterium to a human cell. Attendees can expect exciting sessions on RNA polymerase structural biology, mechanisms that control initiation, elongation, and termination, regulation of transcription in pathogens, RNA-based control, transcriptional networks, and connections between cell topology and gene expression.

FASEB SRC — NAD + Metabolism & Signaling 2017
ID
877118
Dates
09 Jul 2017 - 14 Jul 2017
Location
New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
Abstract
NAD and its metabolites are important regulators of cancer, metabolic disease, autoimmunity, and aging. They play important roles in energy metabolism, function as signaling molecules, and as protein modifications such as ADP-ribosylation. This diversity of function demonstrates the biological importance of NAD and the interconnectivity between cellular metabolism, physiology, and cellular signaling. Recently, significant progress has been made in our understanding of NAD that highlight its broad relevance to human health and disease. This SRC brings together all of the leading experts in NAD biology to one venue with the goal of advancing our understanding of the molecule. Experts come from several NAD relevant fields that include Poly-(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARPs), Sirtuins, NAD dependent signaling networks, calcium signaling, NAD biosynthesis and the chemical biology of NAD.
