Keystone Symposia - Cryo-EM from Cells to Molecules: Multi-Scale Visualization of Biological Systems
04 Feb 2018 - 08 Feb 2018 • Tahoe City, California, United States
Abstract:
Fast-evolving cryo-EM visualization techniques have recently started to illuminate the inner workings of complicated and dynamic biological assemblies with a level of detail we have never seen before. Cryo-EM is now the state-of-the-art methodology for taking snapshots of biological systems from low to high resolution and with various levels of complexities, from small macromolecular complexes all the way to subcellular organizations. This symposium will showcase cryo-EM breakthroughs in addressing crucial problems in cell biology and will further highlight cryo-EM imaging as a platform for the integration of data from orthogonal approaches. With talks on a variety of biological specimens, procedures and types of biological questions, the meeting aims to attract a very diverse audience from both academia and industry with interest in the method, and beyond the traditional cryo-EM specialist. The symposium will focus on four themes: 1) Single-particle cryo-EM with attention to the characterization of the conformational ensemble adopted by macromolecular complexes and aiming to delineate their mechanism of action; 2) Cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) and correlative light electron microscopy (CLEM) to visualize cellular organizations and their dynamics; 3) The emergence of cryo-EM as tool for drug discovery and translational research through both high-resolution structure determination and characterization of cellular phenotypes; and 4) Recent developments in sample preparation and image acquisition. Furthermore, the symposium will include workshops in specimen preparation and evaluation of suitability for cryo-EM, modeling of structures using cryo-EM data, and how to set up a cryo-EM lab.

Keystone Symposia - Phosphoinositide Biology: New Therapeutic Targets Beyond Class I PI3K
11 Feb 2018 - 15 Feb 2018 • Taos, New Mexico, United States
Abstract:
Phosphoinositides have been recognized since the 1980s as important regulatory lipids supporting signal transduction from G protein-coupled receptors and receptor tyrosine kinases. The discovery of PI 3-kinases and their roles in carcinogenesis and immune regulation has created a fertile ground for translational expansion of the phosphoinositide field with a focus on cancer and inflammation. Most of these advances focused on Class I PI3Ks and PIP3-mediated signaling. However, research on other PI kinases and phosphoinositides has expanded substantially over the years. Class II and -III PI 3-kinases and less characterized 3-phosphorylated phosphoinositides are now rapidly emerging as key controllers of development, trafficking, nutrition-sensing and autophagy. Furthermore, phosphoinositides different from the 3-phosphorylated species are gaining momentum in many aspects of cell physiology and pathology. Exciting new developments include PI 4-kinases controlling vesicular trafficking and non-vesicular lipid transfer between membrane contacts, and new details are emerging on the role of inositol lipid phosphatases in trafficking, endocytosis and ciliary function. The recently recognized roles of PI 4-kinases as obligate host factors for certain RNA viruses, and their importance in parasitic organisms such as Plasmodium falciparum or Legionella pneumophila, have raised significant interest from pharmaceutical companies that now focus on inositol lipids other than the products of PI 3-kinases. By expanding our knowledge of phosphoinositides beyond class I PI3K products, this Keystone Symposia meeting represents a unique opportunity to bolster the rising interest in these under-explored avenues with a strong potential for translational impact.
