Keystone Symposia: Manipulation of the Gut Microbiota for Metabolic Health
04 Mar 2018 - 08 Mar 2018 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
The main objective of this Keystone Symposia conference is to evaluate the contribution of the gut microbiota to diseases characterized by alterations of host energy metabolism, and to highlight development of new therapeutic and nutritional approaches. Innovative models allow us to better elaborate the link between gut microbiota, the environment (including nutrition and xenobiotics – drugs, contaminants, additives) and host physiology, namely by focusing on specific metabolites produced by the gut microbes. As compared to previous meetings organized in the same field, additional metabolic disorders will be covered, including undernutrition and cachexia, disturbances of gut-muscle axis and cardiovascular dysfunction. Special attention will be brought to innovative tools to manipulate the gut microbiota, implicating both academic and industry research. The symposium will bring together a multidisciplinary audience to explore the vast amount of existing data (metagenomics and metabolomics dataset) that can be leveraged to elaborate novel tools to modulate the gut microbiota for host health. This symposium is being held jointly with "Microbiome, Host Resistance and Disease."

Keystone Symposia: Microbiome, Host Resistance and Disease
04 Mar 2018 - 08 Mar 2018 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
The concept that the microbiome shapes health and susceptibility to disease has taken the biomedical sciences by storm. The microbiota is emerging as a fundamental force influencing diverse aspects of physiology reflected in the sessions of this conference. Microbiome studies are at a critical juncture and facing a challenging transition from descriptive studies of association towards mechanistic studies tackling causality. Essential for this transition is a diversity of thinking (chemical and systems biology, metabolism, microbiology, physiology and immunology) and approaches (assays and models). As the basic tools for characterizing microbiomes are now widely accessible, the conference seeks to broaden the base of what defines membership in microbiome studies by inviting investigators to share their vision, approach and results to enhance understanding and mechanistic approaches. In summary, the conference aims to: 1) Introduce a breadth of challenges and biological systems for microbiome studies; 2) Showcase young and senior investigators relevant to advancing next-gen microbiome studies; and 3) Foster collaborative, multidisciplinary microbiome research that advances basic and translational science. This symposium is paired with "Manipulation of the Gut Microbiota for Metabolic Health."

ARVO 2019 Annual Meeting
28 Apr 2019 - 02 May 2019 • Vancouver, Canada
Abstract:
The theme of the ARVO 2014 Annual Meeting is inspired by all the many ways our members demonstrate leadership. This meeting is where eye and vision researchers come to discover research on the leading edge of their own fields and others. Eye and vision research is leading efforts in many related areas, including neuroscience, tissue imaging, preventative health and others.
