Keystone Symposia: Lipidomics and Bioactive Lipids in Metabolism and Disease
ID
833353
Termin
26. Feb 2017 - 02. Mär 2017
Ort
Tahoe City, California, Vereinigte Staaten
Zusammenfassung
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
Termin
03. Mär 2017 - 07. Mär 2017
Ort
Monterey, Kalifornien, Vereinigte Staaten
Zusammenfassung
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.

FASEB SRC — Regulation and Function of Small GTPases
ID
871148
Termin
11. Jun 2017 - 16. Jun 2017
Ort
West Palm Beach, Florida, Vereinigte Staaten
Zusammenfassung
This SRC provides an interactive forum that covers the latest developments in the small GTPase field and presents the newest technological advancements that are being used to unravel the complex roles of small GTPases in human health and disease. Small GTPases (e.g. Ras, Rac, Rho, Cdc42, Rab, Rap, Rheb and Ral) are essential for key cellular processes such as cell differentiation, proliferation, and migration, as well as the regulation of subcellular events such as vesicle trafficking. These critical functions of small GTPases make them important participants in a wide variety of physiological and pathophysiological processes. The founding member of the small GTPase superfamily, Ras, is the most commonly mutated oncogene in human cancers, and many other small GTPases (including RhoA, Rac1, Rab5, Rheb, and RalA) also play fundamental roles in cancer development and progression. Due to these important oncogenic functions of small GTPases, there is a strong cancer theme underlying this meeting. However, small GTPases also participate in other biomedically important events, including the promotion of vascular diseases, immunological abnormalities, mental disorders, and metabolic conditions. For these reasons, progress from a number of fields in addition to cancer biology will be highlighted, including neurobiology, developmental biology, computational biology, and membrane biophysics to ensure that we are leveraging and learning from discoveries made in important related fields. The main objective of the meeting is to stimulate cross-pollination of ideas among researchers investigating basic biochemical mechanisms, cell and tissue biology, and translational models to define the diverse functions of small GTPases.

FASEB SRC — Rapid Signaling and Genomic Steroid Hormone Actions in Health and Disease
ID
871070
Termin
11. Jun 2017 - 16. Jun 2017
Ort
Snowmass Village, Colorado, Vereinigte Staaten
Zusammenfassung
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.

Ort
Steamboat Springs, CO, Vereinigte Staaten
Zusammenfassung
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.
