Jefferson Palliative Care Symposium — 6th Annual Palliative Care Spring Symposium For Interprofessional Healthcare Providers: Tackling Hot Topics in Palliative Care
02 Jun 2017 • Philadelphia, United States
Abstract:
The goal of the 6th Annual Palliative Care Spring Symposium For Interprofessional Healthcare Providers: Tackling Hot Topics in Palliative Care is to improve the quality and delivery of primary palliative care to all patients and their families with serious, life-threatening illness. Practitioners from all related professions will acquire skills and strategies to help them care for these patients. Designed to include practical presentations, with expert panelists representing interdisciplinary professions, the course explores challenging subjects such as physical, emotional and psychological care for complex, seriously ill patients and their families, specifically addressing topics of safe pain management, ALS and physician-assisted suicide. Expert panel, case based presentations will be moderated and include experts from a variety of fields and clinical settings. Keynote lecture presentations will add a unique perspective to the agenda, addressing alternative therapies and how popular press coverage of medical issues translates into science. This years’ agenda and faculty perspectives will enhance the context of discussions throughout the course program, adding take home pearls that participants can put into palliative care practice.

FASEB SRC — Reversible Acetylation on Health and Disease (HDACs)
06 Aug 2017 - 11 Aug 2017 • Big Sky, Montana, United States
Abstract:
Over the past few years, the “epigenetic” regulation of the genome has become increasingly important to understanding both the etiology and fundamental mechanisms of aging and age-related diseases. Key to epigenetic regulation are two classes of lysine-modifying enzymes, the histone deacetylases (sirtuins and HDACs) and the histone acetyltransferases (HATs). Both classes of enzyme are critical for maintaining youthful gene expression patterns, cell cycle progression, DNA repair, stem cells, mitochondria, cell fate, differentiation, cognition, energy utilization, and the pathogenesis of most age-related diseases. Alterations in sirtuin and HDAC function have been linked to neurodegenerative disorders, muscle wasting, cardiac hypertrophy, cancer, HIV infection, and more generally the process of aging. Several HDAC inhibitors have been approved by FDA to treat various cancers. Small molecule modulators of sirtuins are currently in clinical trials for the treatment of cancers, neuromuscular disorders, inflammatory and metabolic disorders. With particular relevance to aging, the sirtuins, a subclass of HDAC, were first identified in yeast genetic studies as regulators of lifespan and the health benefits of dietary restriction. Activation or overexpression of sirtuins have been shown to protect mice and primates from diseases of aging, and extend mean and maximum lifespan of mice. Therefore, a thorough understanding of sirtuins and HDACs is required, not merely for understanding the regulation of chromatin structure, gene regulation and protein function, but also because these enzymes are intimately involved in normal and abnormal cellular processes that greatly impact human health. Although targeting HATs for therapeutic purposes has been relatively slow compared to targeting deacetylases, exciting new progress has also been made in recent years. Importantly, targeting the bromodomains present in many HATs has attracted a lot of attention lately.
