1.Gordon Research Conference — Genome Architecture in Cell Fate & Disease 2015
 Dates 07 Jun 2015 → 12 Jun 2015
[ID=655757] Go to top of page
 LocationHong Kong, China
 Abstract The cell is the basic unit of life. The acquisition of a nucleus to house the genetic material is thought to have provided a distinct advantage to the evolving cell, ultimately allowing the emergence of differentiated, specialized cells. Whereas much effort over the last five decades has been devoted to understanding the genetic material by biochemical approaches and sequencing, our understanding of how these materials are stored physically is only just emerging. Accumulating evidence suggest that genomes are organized non-randomly into complex 3D configurations that vary according to cell type, stage of development, differentiation and disease status. The principles, which guide higher order organization, the mechanisms responsible for establishment, maintenance and alterations of higher order genome, and the functional consequences of aberrant genome and nuclear organization have become areas of intense interest. The higher-order spatial and temporal organization of genomes in the cell nucleus is rapidly emerging as a driver of biological function in differentiation, development and disease and the incorporation of information on higher order genome organization adds an additional level of complexity in our understanding of genome regulation. These studies bring together several cutting edge fields including genomics, epigenetics, big data analysis, imaging and clinical cell and molecular biology. While the field of nuclear architecture in the past has primarily focused on the elucidation of the basic mechanisms of genome organization, the time is ripe to apply what we have learn to physiological and pathological processes. The 2015 conference on Genome Architecture in Cell Fate and Disease aims to foster a new community that is devoted to the understanding of nuclear architecture in cell fate determination, development and disease. The advances in imaging technology, big data analysis, and stem cell biology will provide a fertile ground for discoveries that may impact the basic understanding of life and may catalyze new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in disease. Particularly emphasis will be placed on discussion of physiologically and pathologically systems including genome organization during cell differentiation and development, the epigenetic- and chromatin-landscape of embryonic-, adult- and cancer stem cells, chromatin organization in cancer etiological and the role of structural elements of the cell nucleus, including lamins, in disease and aging. Another angle is to promote cutting edge tools that allow us to visualize the nucleus both in static states as well as during transitions. Combined with big data efforts, these approaches will allow us to both unify and integrate chemical, biological, physiological as well as physical parameters into a coherent picture of the nucleus, especially the human one.

2.Frontiers of Cell Signaling
 Dates 21 Jun 2015 → 24 Jun 2015
[ID=644946] Go to top of page
 LocationShanghai, China
 Abstract Cell signaling, which is extremely complex and yet highly precise, is responsible for the development and function of multicellular organisms. Abnormal cell signaling leads to diseases. Recently, significant progress has been made in the biological studies of mechanisms and functions of signal transduction. At the conference, experts in Wnt, planar cell polarity and Hippo signaling, as well as signal transduction will discuss latest advances and new challenges. Additional talks will be selected from abstracts and poster awards will be given to excellent poster presentations by postdoctoral fellows and students. Social and networking opportunities will be included in the meeting program.
 Topics Cell signaling, Wnt signaling, Planar cell polarity, Hippo signaling
