Non-Invasive Delivery of Macromolecules Conference 2017
ID
806655
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
806966
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
833418
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
833362
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
871125
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 — Protein Aggregation in Health and Disease
ID
877137
Dates
11 Jun 2017 - 16 Jun 2017
Location
Steamboat Springs, CO, United States
Abstract
This SRC is focused on protein aggregation, which plays central roles in health and in disease and a converged understanding of these dual roles is absolutely essential if we are to understand the emergence of biological complexity and the onset and progression of devastating systemic and neurodegenerative diseases. Importantly, protein aggregation and aggregates are also central in numerous biological functions as is evidenced in the growing number of accounts of functional aggregates and their roles in fungi, bacteria, and in the innate immune system of humans. Recent studies have highlighted the role of phase separation driven by a form of protein aggregation that gives rise to functional, non-stoichiometric assemblies, known as membraneless organelles. The cross-disciplinary nature of the conference is accentuated by the program, which brings together biophysicists, structural biologists, and bioengineers with cell biologists and clinical scientists.

FASEB SRC — Signal Transduction in the Immune System
ID
871106
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.

Location
Big Sky, Montana, United States
Abstract
This SRC is focused on the dynamic nature of mobile DNAs in mammalian genomes and their phenotypic impacts. Topics will encompass mechanistic and evolutionary aspects of diverse types of retrotransposons, including LINE-1 and endogenous retroviruses, as well as DNA transposons and related human genes. Attendees will also explore interactions between these sequences and the epigenome and endogenous machinery of DNA repair and rearrangement. These elements comprise are a major portion of our DNA, and are significant contributors to genomic diversity in the form of structural variation. While the germ line is a well-known site of activity of mobile genetic elements, there is increasing evidence for expression and mobility in somatic cells and in human diseases, particularly cancers. This makes it an exciting time for the field. Moreover, new insights are being gained into roles of mobile elements in shaping gene regulatory networks in normal cells. Finally, harnessing mobile genetics elements as tools for forward genetic screens or gene delivery has provided new capabilities to change the genome. This is a long standing meeting, certain to be thought provoking, animated, and collegial all at once.

FASEB SRC — Mechanism and Regulation of Prokaryotic Transcription
ID
877002
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 — Molecular Pathogenesis: Mechanisms of Infectious Disease
ID
877059
Dates
09 Jul 2017 - 14 Jul 2017
Location
Snowmass Village, Colorado, United States
Abstract
Since 1994, this Biennial FASEB Science Research Conference has been devoted to exciting and groundbreaking research on viral, bacterial, fungal, and protozoal pathogens. The combined themes are particularly pertinent as we now know that regardless of their taxonomic differences, microbes confront similar barriers from the host innate and acquired immune systems, thus indicating both similar and unique virulence strategies.As such, this is the only long-standing specialized international conference that regularly attracts virologists, bacteriologists, mycologists, parasitologists, immunologists, antimicrobial researchers, and translational scientists. Notable speakers include – but are certainly not limited to – Gordon Dougan, Kim Orth, Vern Carruthers, Erica Ollman Saphire, Gerry Wright, Vanessa Sperandio, Russell Vance, and many others. By convening together leading scientists with expertise in all areas of infectious disease, this conference optimizes information transfer, catalyzes provocative discussions, and fosters long-term cross disciplinary collaborations. In 2017, the program will include sessions on diverse aspects of host-microbe interactions from molecular, evolutionary, immunological, and therapeutic perspectives. Talks will also include new, state-of-the-art approaches as well as how to adapt traditional approaches to meet today’s challenges. Finally, the relatively small size of the meeting, the diversity of fields, and many structured and informal interaction opportunities – including three poster sessions, a formal career development session the final morning of the conference, free time in the afternoon, and ‘meet the speaker’ lunch tables.

FASEB SRC — Genetic Recombination and Genome Rearrangements
ID
871086
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.

FASEB SRC — Growth Hormone/Prolactin Family in Biology and Disease
ID
876912
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.

AIM workshop — Topology of the biomolecular world
ID
815186
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.

FASEB SRC — Lysophospholipid and Related Mediators - From Bench to Clinic
ID
877031
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.
