Keystone Symposia: Mitochondria Communication
ID
830009
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
830116
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
833370
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: Microbiome in Health and Disease
ID
833457
Dates
05 Feb 2017 - 09 Feb 2017
Location
Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract
This Keystone Symposia meeting brings together experts in clinical medicine, clinical microbiology, microbial genomics, and bacterial genetics to explore how both strain variation and underlying microbial community determine health and disease. Genomic advances provide higher-level resolution to both pathogen and host genetic determinants. This meeting aims to explore how monitoring and potentially altering the microbial community may modulate and predict disease risk. This conference is being held jointly with

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.

Keystone Symposia: Bile Acid Receptors as Signal Integrators in Liver and Metabolism
ID
833341
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.
