FASEB SRC — The TGF-β Superfamily: Signaling in Development and Disease
09 Jul 2017 - 14 Jul 2017 • 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.

FASEB SRC — Growth Hormone/Prolactin Family in Biology and Disease
23 Jul 2017 - 28 Jul 2017 • Steamboat Springs, CO, United States
Abstract:
This SRC will bring together international scientists from academia and industry for lively discussions on the latest developments in the growth hormone (GH)/prolactin (PRL) family of hormones and their clinical applications. Beyond their classic roles in growth and lactation, these related hormones are increasingly recognized regulators of metabolism, stem cells, aging, behavior, cancer, and perinatal health of both mother and child, via actions on diverse target tissues. Moreover, they influence major associated health problems, such as obesity, diabetes, aging, mental health and multiple cancers. Our goal is to bring together senior and junior investigators working on all aspects of these hormones, from cell biology, genetics, developmental biology, neurobiology, metabolism, physiology, to their clinical and agricultural applications. Together, we will increase our understanding of how GH/PRL family proteins modulate health and disease processes, forge new collaborations, and accelerate the discovery of new pharmacologic approaches. Speakers from the GH/PRL community and related fields from around the world will share breaking data on a variety of cutting edge topics including genetic mutations in synthesis and signaling pathways, newly identified targets, novel mediators and nodes of critical crosstalk with other players, pituitary stem cells, interactions between peripheral hormones, hypothalamus and brain, and new drug targets/pre-clinical studies.

Neuroepigenetics and Epitranscriptomics
19 Aug 2017 - 26 Aug 2017 • 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
26 Aug 2017 - 02 Sep 2017 • 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
17 Sep 2017 - 24 Sep 2017 • 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.

Keystone Symposia: Maternal-Fetal Cross Talk – Harmony vs. Conflict
04 Oct 2017 - 08 Oct 2017 • Washington, D.C., United States
Abstract:
The interactions between the mother and the fetus during the progression of normal pregnancy involve trade-offs, or even conflicts, between factors that improve maternal health and those that support fetal development and growth. These may lead to selective evolutionary pressures that differ among species, and result in intriguing differences in reproductive strategies that enhance maternal-fetal biological harmony, and mitigate conflict. Intriguing strategies to balance these pressures include imprinting, coincident with placentation. Adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as miscarriage, preterm birth, preeclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction, are heterogeneous, and gaps remain in understanding how imbalances between maternal and fetal adaptations contribute to these disorders. The goal of this meeting is to bring together investigators from diverse disciplines who investigate maternal and fetal factors that shape pregnancy outcomes by exploring how these systems work together or are at odds. The conference will aim to develop these concepts, illuminating developmental, genomic/epigenomic, immune, microbial and metabolic factors as well as consider how acute exposures during pregnancy, such as infection, shape maternal-fetal outcomes. Understanding the biology underpinning these considerations will contribute to better diagnosis, treatment and disease prevention during pregnancy. The presentations will address critical gaps in our knowledge of maternal/fetal harmony and conflict, and target paths to improve understanding of issues related to social, economic and geographic inequality that predispose some groups to enhanced risk during pregnancy. A better understanding of the biology, and development of new collaborative possibilities and paths to improved clinical outcomes, are primary goals of the meeting.
