Call for Abstracts: Neural Control of Metabolic Physiology and Diseases

April 12—17, 2015 Snowbird, Utah

Abstract Deadline: Jan 13, 2015

The central nervous system, including the hypothalamus in particular, is important for the control of energy balance and metabolic homeostasis. Current research continues to generate important new understanding of the molecular, cellular, and neural mechanisms underlying this control. From a disease perspective, dysregulation of these processes appears to be crucial for the development and progression of the metabolic syndrome- including obesity, glucose intolerance/diabetes and hypertension- as well as the pathogenesis associated with aging. Recent research has begun to define and characterize the neural pathways involved in these processes. This symposium will bring together breaking research advances from both the basic science and translational realms, including new knowledge of neural circuits, plasticity and signaling, as well as insights into roles for hypothalamic/brain pathways in disease development. Also importantly, several new areas will be addressed, including state-of-art technologies for neuroscience research, adult neural stem cells, neural degeneration, microglia, aging, and related alterations of metabolic resilience.

Abstract Deadline: Jan 8, 2015

Heritable, covalent modifications to DNA and histone proteins play an important role in an organism’s development and survival. Such epigenetic mechanisms have been increasingly linked to risks to a broad spectrum of human diseases. However, the exact function of epigenetic marks in development and disease pathogenesis remains to be better understood. Empowered by recent technological advances in DNA sequencing technologies, epigenetic regulatory mechanisms have been investigated in a growing number of organisms at increasingly high resolution and scope. The results are an explosion in new genomic technologies, large-scale datasets and computational resources. The growing research field is now referred to as “epigenomics”. Epigenomics is still a young and growing field, and there are many challenges to investigators working on specific model organisms or disease who want to adopt this approach. This meeting is designed to capture the recent progresses in the field in the same time bridge the technological gaps in the field, such as datasets availability, method adoption, data interpretation.

Call for Abstracts: Viruses and Human Cancer

March 29—April 3, 2015 Big Sky, Montana

Abstract Deadline: Jan 6, 2015

In 1970, an authoritative book entitled “Viruses and Cancer” was published by Sir Christopher Andrews, one of the discoverers of influenza virus. On page 135 he wrote “Despite these findings, there is no doubt that as regards the generality of cancers in man, and indeed in other mammals, there is no direct evidence that viruses are concerned”. It is now estimated that about 20% of human cancers are caused by infectious agents, among them at least 7 viruses. The increasing appreciation of the role of viruses in cancer pathogenesis has not only already led to the development of two successful vaccines (against HBV and HPV) that prevent cancer, it has also directly contributed to many fundamental discoveries in cancer biology. In the last decade the understanding of virus-induced cancers has been accelerated by the extraordinary developments in genomics, epigenetics and RNA biology. To review this rapidly burgeoning field, this multidisciplinary symposium brings together experts in virology, oncology, immunology, genomics and genetics. The objective of the symposium is to explore how advances in cancer biology can inform the understanding of virus-induced cancers, and how viruses continue to reveal fundamental principles in cancer. Particular emphasis will be laid on the interaction between virus and host in persistent infections by oncogenic viruses. The meeting will cover examples of cancers where a viral cause is still under debate and the rapid development of technology for the detection of unknown viruses.

Call for Abstracts: Gram-Negative Resistance

March 29—April 2, 2015 Tahoe City, California

Abstract Deadline: Jan 6, 2015

SIGNIFICANCE: The antibiotic era, stemming from the deployment of penicillin, introduced arguably the most successful medicines of all time, impacting dramatically on life expectancy by decreasing childhood and adult deaths from infections, and enabling complex surgeries, transplantations and cancer chemotherapy. However the therapy of infectious diseases is now under severe threat. There has been an explosion of resistance to antibiotics, whereby our entire arsenal of antibiotics is gradually losing effectiveness. This is particularly acute for Gram negative bacteria since there are few new antibiotics or strategies in the development pipeline. In this meeting we will address the major issues and potential solutions to this crisis. INNOVATION: The issues associated with gram-negative resistance, and the design of effective therapeutics, are different and more complicated than those associated with the other major division of bacteria (gram positives). Consistent with the most recent antibiotics are active against the latter class leaving academic and company researchers and physicians to wonder where the next generation of treatments will come from. For this reason, it is essential that these issues are discussed as a distinct problem that has the potential to unravel human medical successes. Here, we will bring together diverse researchers from disciplines ranging from discovery research to drug development and clinical treatment to discuss strategies for addressing this critical issue and proposing routes for innovative solutions.

Call for Abstracts: Transcriptional and Epigenetic Influences on Stem Cell States

March 23—28, 2015 Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Abstract Deadline: Dec 19, 2014

An ambitious goal in modern biology is to understand stem cell states. Although much is known about both the behavior of stem cells under various conditions and the molecular details of stem cell identity, there is a gap between these two bodies of knowledge. This meeting sets out to bridge this gap, with a focus on transcriptional and epigenetic control of stem cell function. Advances in these areas will enable us to devise new strategies not only to probe stem cell biology more deeply, but to model disease and to develop cellular therapies. This Keystone Symposia meeting will bring together researchers who strive to: 1) Describe transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms that control specific stem cell behaviors; 2) Generate predictive models of stem cell fate determination; 3) Delineate the influence of cell cycle and signaling on stem cell state; and 4) Understand mechanisms governing cell fate change, including differentiation, reprogramming and transdifferentiation. Ultimately, the meeting will provide an opportunity to view copious empirical data on stem cell behavior through a molecular lens. We will bring together scientists from very basic research fields exploring transcriptional control and chromatin modifications, but also stem cell and developmental biologists seeking to understand stem cell function in various biological contexts, as well as translational researchers thinking about developing therapies or model specific diseases. The knowledge exchanged at the meeting will accelerate the optimization of existing stem cell technologies (e.g., iPSC) and catalyze entirely novel approaches to manipulating stem cells for studying and treating disease.
