Non-Invasive Delivery of Macromolecules Conference 2017
ID
806688
Dates
21 Feb 2017 - 24 Feb 2017
Location
Carlsbad, San Diego, United States
Abstract
Scientific progress over the last three decades has resulted in a multitude of macromolecular biologic therapeutics – mostly proteins and peptides. Effective and efficient delivery of these biopharmaceuticals has been limited to traditional injections. Administration of these biopharmaceuticals using a variety of novel minimally invasive approaches would offer not only the potential for increased patient compliance but also improved safety/efficacy in certain instances. Many common issues must be addressed to successfully develop various strategies being explored for oral, transdermal, nasal, pulmonary, and ocular delivery. A new meeting has now been organized to bring together experts from these various fields of drug delivery. The goal of this meeting is to provide an open and creative forum for academic and industrial scientists to discuss the spectrum of activities (from concept to clinical testing) required for successful development of clinical products.

Phase Separation and RNA Processing as Drivers of Cancer and Neurodegenerative Disease
ID
806900
Dates
24 Feb 2017 - 27 Feb 2017
Location
Carlsbad, San Diego, United States
Abstract
A significant challenge in clinical medicine, particularly in cancer and neurodegenerative disease, is the absence of pharmaceuticals that directly target the pathology. In cancer, well over 90% of mutations found in patient tumors are deemed ‘non-actionable’. Many proteins with ‘non-actionable’ mutations are investigated by scientists who study RNA biology, in particular abnormalities in post-transcriptional RNA processing. Biophysicists and engineers have made great strides in understanding biological phase transitions and the role of intrinsically disordered protein (IDP) domains, which have been implicated in both diseases and often described as ‘non-actionable’. This conference seeks to bring together disease-focused medical scientists, RNA biologists, and biophysicists in a truly multidisciplinary environment.

Keystone Symposia: Bile Acid Receptors as Signal Integrators in Liver and Metabolism
ID
833429
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: Rare and Undiagnosed Diseases: Discovery and Models of Precision Therapy
ID
833406
Dates
05 Mar 2017 - 08 Mar 2017
Location
Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Abstract
Of the 7000 known rare diseases, only a fraction have their molecular and mechanistic bases delineated, and many other diseases have yet to be discovered. Characterization of these disorders will reveal new biochemical pathways and cell biological processes, point to potential drug targets, and provide hope for millions of affected individuals. This meeting will address approaches and best practices in pursuing rare and undiagnosed disorders, limitations in data sharing as a barrier to new disease discovery, and examples of successful descriptions of new diseases, mechanisms, and treatments. Specific aims include fostering the development of expertise in rare diseases and the definition of their natural histories; an international network of scientists and physicians collaborating on new disease discovery by sharing phenotypic and sequence data; and new therapeutic approaches based upon rare and new disease mechanisms. Through this meeting, participants should become familiar with rare and undiagnosed disease programs, acquire insights into new disease mechanisms, learn about potential therapeutic targets, and establish collaborations that enhance rare disorder expertise and new disease discovery. The meeting will bring together physicians who are expert in rare disorders with scientists who know metabolic pathways and mechanisms, advancing understanding and therapy. A desired outcome of the meeting includes developing lists of clinical and basic research experts for synergistic collaborations, and creating an international organization to perpetuate the joint investigation of rare and new diseases.

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 — Signal Transduction in the Immune System
ID
871139
Dates
18 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017
Location
Snowmass Village, Colorado, United States
Abstract
This Science Research Conference will focus on the most recent advances in the fields of signal transduction in the immune system, with an emphasis on the coupling of signaling to differentiation pathways, the development of new technologies for understanding and imaging signaling, interactions between metabolism and lymphocyte activation and differentiation, signaling through mechanotransduction, and signaling through immunomodulatory receptors in cancer. These topics have direct relevance to a number of clinically important areas, including autoimmunity, immunodeficiency diseases, transplantation immunology, tumor immunology, infectious diseases and chronic inflammation. In particular, leukocyte metabolism, the mechanism and feedback of antigen receptor signaling initiation and kinase regulation, immunomodulatory receptors, and cytoskeletal changes that accompany leukocyte activation and migration have provided a wealth of new information that will enhance our understanding of the complex pathways that control immune responses under normal as well as pathogenic situations. As such, the mechanisms and pathways that will be discussed in detail at this conference represent a major source of target leads for the development of new therapeutics to treat immunological disorders and sit at the forefront and intersection of basic and translational research. The inclusion of sessions that bridge these two types of research is another invaluable contribution of this meeting.There will be a large number of selected talks from the abstracts, which will give junior investigators an opportunity to present their data.

Dates
16 Jul 2017 - 21 Jul 2017
Location
Steamboat Springs, CO, United States
Abstract
This SRC presents progress in research on diverse aspects of genetic recombination, a critical process that maintains integrity of the genome and that ensures the faithful transmission of the genome between generations. This conference focuses on the study of recombination mechanisms, the impact of recombination on genome integrity, and the influence of other DNA processes on recombination. Many of the recent advances in understanding recombination in normal, pathological, and environmentally stressed contexts have emerged through new combinations of experimental approaches spanning biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, genomics, and cytology. The agenda reflects the diversity of approaches currently used and is specifically geared toward identifying the emerging technologies and concepts that are moving the field forward. The meeting will focus on new, unpublished data in the field and will highlight connections between recombination and other cellular processes, including transcription, replication, cell cycle progression, and other branches of DNA repair. There will be presentations by researchers using diverse model organisms including bacteria, fungi, flies, nematodes, and mammalian cells, as well as in vitro biochemistry and structural biology. There will be many opportunities for interaction between established investigators and scientists who are new to the field, and a significant number of the plenary speakers will be chosen from submitted abstracts.

AIM workshop — Topology of the biomolecular world
ID
815175
Dates
24 Jul 2017 - 28 Jul 2017
Location
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States
Abstract
This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to topological modeling and analysis of biomolecules. A major feature of life sciences in the 21st century is their transformation from phenomenological and descriptive disciplines to quantitative and predictive ones. Revolutionary opportunities have emerged for mathematically driven advances in biological research. However, the emergence of excessive complexity in self-organizing biological systems poses fundamental challenges to their quantitative description. Dealing with the connectivity and transformation of different components in a space, topology provides a dramatic simplification of biomolecular data and sheds light on drug design, protein folding, organelle function, signaling, gene regulation networks and topology-function relationship.
