Keystone Symposia: Bioenergetics and Metabolic Disease
21 Jan 2018 - 25 Jan 2018 • Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
Obesity and type 2 diabetes are major drivers of chronic disease and premature death. A promising strategy to reduce obesity and improve metabolic health is through promoting energy expenditure via thermogenesis, including obligatory (accompanies all metabolic processes) and facultative (adaptive) mechanisms. Obesity and insulin resistance also lead to profound metabolic changes in various cells/tissues that contribute to tissue dysfunction. This conference brings together basic and clinical researchers from industry and academia focused on the study of cellular and organismal energy metabolism in the context of metabolic disease. A variety of approaches and topics will be featured, including: basic mechanisms of mitochondrial and cellular energetics; the emerging role of brown and beige fat in adaptive thermogenesis; central regulation of energy expenditure; and the effects of exercise on muscle and whole-body metabolism. In addition to the plenary sessions, the meeting will feature workshops on emerging research areas and novel therapeutic opportunities. Overall, the goals of the conference are to: 1) Provide a cutting-edge understanding of the basic mechanisms that control cellular and whole-body energetics; 2) Discuss the physiological role of brown fat and other energy expenditure pathways in humans; 3) Consider novel strategies for increasing energy expenditure and combating metabolic disease; and 4) Engage attendees in critical discussions about important areas for future research.

Keystone Symposia: Precision Genome Editing with Programmable Nucleases
28 Jan 2018 - 01 Feb 2018 • Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
Genome editing refers to the use of programmable DNA-targeting platforms to manipulate genetic and epigenetic information in living cells and organisms. Genome editing has been recently democratized by the development of RNA-guided endonucleases repurposed from CRISPR-Cas microbial defense systems against viruses or plasmids. Whereas novel tools such as Cpf1 and RNA-guided deaminases are being developed to expand the scope of genome editing, old tools such as ZFNs and TALENs are likely to undergo innovations as well. These tools enable genome-wide genetic screens in cell lines and genetic studies in both model and non-model organisms. Furthermore, genome editing holds great promise for broad applications in medicine and biotechnology, raising public interest and concerns. Yet genome editing is still limited by many factors such as inefficient delivery in vivo, off-target effects, and unwanted, alternative DNA repair. This conference offers opportunities to learn about new developments, advancements and applications in the field.

Keystone Symposia - Cancer Epigenetics: New Mechanisms, New Therapies
10 Feb 2018 - 14 Feb 2018 • Breckenridge, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
The field of epigenetics has recently emerged as an essential component of oncology research, with altered epigenetic modifications considered to be critical hallmarks of cancers. Unlike mutations, epigenetic aberrations are reversible and as a result, epigenetic therapies hold great promise as anti-cancer agents. For these novel therapies to succeed, a key challenge is to fully understand the nature and the mechanisms that lead to epigenetic changes in cancer. Another essential challenge is to make sense of the avalanche of data flowing from increasingly powerful "omics-based" technologies. Despite these challenges, never has the potential for scientific and clinical breakthroughs in this field been greater. Bringing together both the academic and the pharmaceutical communities, this Keystone Symposia conference will focus on: 1) The newest findings concerning the mechanisms by which epigenetic pathways are established and maintained in normal and stem cells, and how these go awry during aging and cancer, with a special emphasis on histone modifications, chromatin remodeling and the unexpected increased number of DNA modifications ((hydroxy)methylcytosine and methyladenine); 2) The growing roles of noncoding RNAs in cancer and the emergence of the new and exciting realm of RNA epigenetics; 3) Use of new omics technologies to interrogate altered epigenetic landscapes in tumors and assess their clinical implications; and 4) Novel and promising therapeutic drugs aimed at reversing specific epigenetic alterations. Ultimately, the meeting will provide great opportunities for senior and junior scientists to meet the leaders in the field from both academia and industry, hence forging exciting interdisciplinary interactions and creating potential new collaborations in the booming area of cancer epigenetics.

Abstract:
The 2018 Gordon Conference on Chromatin Structure and Function will bring together leading experts and newcomers to the field, to present and discuss their newest research on chromatin, its complex interactions, and its regulatory power in shaping genome architecture and function. Technologies to visualize and map chromatin at all levels are proceeding at a rapid pace. The meeting will highlight how chromatin structures, ranging from the nucleosome – the "building block" of chromatin - up to the dynamic three-dimensional spatial organization of the chromosome, are assembled, maintained, and altered, and how this ultimately controls genome functions.
