Keystone Symposia - Connectomics
ID
825328
Dates
05 Mar 2017 - 08 Mar 2017
Location
Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract
The emerging field of connectomics comprises extensive efforts to map patterns of brain connectivity, to represent these patterns with the tools of network science, and to explore the relation of brain connectivity and dynamics to behavior and cognition. Importantly, these efforts span multiple scales of brain organization, from synaptic connectivity among individual neurons, to comprehensive maps of circuits, neuronal populations, and projections among brain regions. An integrative multi-scale framework for mapping, analyzing and modeling connectome data sets is lacking. This Keystone Symposia meeting aims to narrow this important gap, by: 1) Fostering scientific exchange among otherwise siloed researchers studying connectomes in different organisms at different scales with different measurement techniques; 2) Promoting approaches that apply across scales, for example by leveraging the tools of network science; 3) Emphasizing the need to move beyond descriptive accounts of connectomes, to model-based prediction and control; 4) Providing a unique opportunity for pre- and postdoctoral trainees to engage with connectomics leaders and present their work. Anticipated outcomes include a multi-scale framework for description, prediction and control of connectomes; innovative computational methods for statistical analysis and modeling of connectome data sets; and new collaborations among participating researchers and trainees. The meeting will have transformative impact by creating new relationships among investigators and by seeding a new integrative research agenda centered on the structure and dynamics of brain connectivity.

09 Mar 2017 - 12 Mar 2017
Location
Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Abstract
Tissue engineering, cell therapies and regenerative medicine have witnessed accelerated progress over the past decade. Fueled by fundamental discoveries in iPS, progenitor, and developmental cell biology, cells are now used as building blocks to create model systems, as testing platforms for drug interventions and as active therapeutics. High-throughput production of various types of “microtissues” or “organoids” is making increasing contributions to our understanding of human development, disease and repair. This Keystone Symposia meeting will highlight these rapidly emerging cell-based tools for fundamental and applied discovery. Culture systems ranging from simple cell cluster organoids, to highly advanced cell-electronic composites, will be discussed. In addition, the encouraging progress that is being made in cell-based therapies across a range of organs and diseases will be featured. The goal of this meeting is to provide a state-of-the-art review of both pluripotent and differentiated cells as tools for discovery and therapy. A broad range of cell types and therapeutic areas will be included.

FASEB SRC — Mechanism and Regulation of Prokaryotic Transcription
ID
877013
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 — The TGF-β Superfamily: Signaling in Development and Disease
ID
871096
Dates
09 Jul 2017 - 14 Jul 2017
Location
Lisbon, Portugal
Abstract
This SRC is an important and unique scientific conference where the pivotal role of TGF-β family members, including TGF-βs, nodal, activins, BMPs, and GDFs, in developmental, homeostatic, and pathological processes is explored through formal talks, poster sessions, and interactive and intensive scientific discussion sessions. Expansion of this field into previously uncharted areas of biology and human pathogenesis is exemplary, and in part, due to high throughput efforts that serendipitously bring scientists to the world of TGF-β. Program topics include tissue morphogenesis in development and disease, signaling networks and crosstalk, inflammation, vasculature and tissue transformation, tissue microenvironment dynamics in disease, therapeutic frontiers of TGF-β signaling, and homeostatic and metabolic control of growth and disease. This conference will seek to strengthen interactions between those scientists studying molecular mechanisms and those studying development and disease, and will welcome scientists who recently entered the TGF-β field. The conference program planned so far is truly global and represents the breadth of TGF-β family biology. A significant number of submitted abstracts will be selected for short talks. The oral presentations together with three poster sessions and the recreational afternoon sessions will ensure a good blend between young and more advanced investigators, students and postdoctoral fellows that can use this time productively towards building collaborations and scientific exchanges.

Abstract
NAD and its metabolites are important regulators of cancer, metabolic disease, autoimmunity, and aging. They play important roles in energy metabolism, function as signaling molecules, and as protein modifications such as ADP-ribosylation. This diversity of function demonstrates the biological importance of NAD and the interconnectivity between cellular metabolism, physiology, and cellular signaling. Recently, significant progress has been made in our understanding of NAD that highlight its broad relevance to human health and disease. This SRC brings together all of the leading experts in NAD biology to one venue with the goal of advancing our understanding of the molecule. Experts come from several NAD relevant fields that include Poly-(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARPs), Sirtuins, NAD dependent signaling networks, calcium signaling, NAD biosynthesis and the chemical biology of NAD.

Neuroepigenetics and Epitranscriptomics
ID
868394
Dates
19 Aug 2017 - 26 Aug 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
Many cellular constituents in the human brain permanently exit from the cell cycle during pre- or early postnatal development, but little is known about epigenetic regulation of neuronal and glial epigenomes during maturation and aging, including changes in cognitive and psychiatric disease. Normal brain development and function is dependent on highly regulated mechanisms governing DNA cytosine methylation and hydroxymethylation, and probably more than 100 residue-specific histone modifications associated with gene expression and silencing and various other functional chromatin states. Equally important is the 3-dimensional organization of the chromosomal material inside the cell nucleus, commonly referred to as the ‘3D Genome’, with chromosomal loopings potentially bypassing hundreds of kilobases on the linear genome to enable promoter-enhancer interactions and other mechanisms important for transcriptional regulation. Combined exploration of epigenomic and 3D genome chromosomal conformation maps maps is likely to illuminate the role of regulatory non-coding sequences in neuropsychiatric disease.

Synaptic and Structural Plasticity
ID
868437
Dates
26 Aug 2017 - 02 Sep 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
Different forms of synaptic plasticity occurring at the molecular, cellular and circuit level are the focus of this Advanced Course. The Course will start with critical analysis of the evolution of the study of various forms of long-term potentiation and long-term depression and what is generally accepted about their basic mechanisms, including a discussion of modern approaches to understanding the mechanisms and functions of synaptic plasticity. A wide range of areas will be covered, including: (a) the molecular mechanisms underlying different forms of short-term synaptic facilitation and depression that last no more than a few minutes and are typically mediated by presynaptic mechanisms that alter neurotransmitter release (b) the function of key postsynaptic proteins found in the postsynaptic density as well as the role of neurotransmitter receptor regulation during long-term synaptic and experience-dependent plasticity (c) the methodological approaches that have been recently developed to measure the dynamic localization of synaptic elements at nanoscale resolution and how these nanoscale morphological and functional properties regulate synapses (d) the role of neurogenesis throughout life as a crucial mechanism underlying learning-induced circuits in the dentate gyrus and the olfactory bulb (e) how these forms of plasticity integrate to result in the restructuring of entire neuronal circuits. Participation in the Advanced Course will provide an essential conceptual and methodological framework for anyone intending to pursue rigorous research. The advantages and disadvantages of each method, preparation and recording technique are considered in relation to the specific scientific questions being asked. The Advanced Course will not only develop participants’ skill but will also provide plenty of time for informal gatherings with some of the world leaders in synaptic plasticity, designed to foster brainstorming across different disciplines.

Single Cell Omics
ID

Dates
17 Sep 2017 - 24 Sep 2017
Location
Siena, Italy
Abstract
Neuroscience has entered a critical phase, with several international large-scale efforts devoted to the analysis and understanding of brain function. Studies exploiting new technologies for defining the connections in the brain, driving neuronal activity and modeling of neuronal processing are each hampered by our incomplete knowledge of the brain’s constituent parts. Fortunately, a bevy of single cell analyses are now being deployed to better understand the cells that constitute the functioning nervous system. These approaches offer insights into how cells function individually as the building blocks for understanding how they work in ensemble to create functional pathways. A set of emerging tools are available to assess the molecular and cell biology of single cells, including genomic analyses of somatic mutations, epigenomics to explain the influence of the environment upon genome expression, and transcriptomics to gain insight into the capacity of a cell to synthesize proteins and modulate its environment. Powerful technologies permit a variety of cell constituents to be addressed, including proteins, post-translational modifications, peptides and metabolites. Novel biosensors offer parallel analyses of cellular physiological states, reporting on the pH, membrane voltage and metabolic state. Multiplexed together, such methodologies offer a far more complete biological understanding than the more typical gene expression analyses, providing a rich picture of each single cell’s biology in their normal context – information needed to fully interpret the meaning of results from transcriptomics and proteomics studies.This Advanced Course is designed to provide the foundational knowledge needed to critically evaluate the design and execution of single cell omic studies, through daily lectures by the Faculty, critical reading of papers and extensive didactic discussion sessions. In the sessions, discussion will focus on the proper framing of scientific questions to best utilize these techniques, the limitations and advantages of each technique, and what the data can tell us about neuronal function.
