Keystone Symposia: State of the Brain - Genetic Dissection of Brain Circuits and Behavior in Health and Disease
14 Jan 2018 - 18 Jan 2018 • Keystone, United States
Abstract:
Identifying and understanding the building blocks of the nervous system and how they interact is a central focus of international efforts to understand the brain. Modern genetic approaches hold the promise of establishing an inventory of cell types, exploring mechanisms of cellular identity, developing tools for experimental manipulations, building a brain-wide cell type atlas, and providing the basis of establishing brain-wide connectivity atlases at cellular resolution. Understanding how diseases and disorders impact cells, synapses and circuitry is essential to guide the development of treatments and therapies. Creating such an atlas of genetically identified cell types and their connectivity will provide key data and knowledge for developing in silico reconstructions of brain circuitry and developing theories of brain structure and function. This conference brings together leading scientists from around the world to present the latest tools, techniques and discoveries in using genetic approaches to understand the cell types of the brain and their role in cognition, behavior and brain diseases and disorders.

Keystone Symposia: T Cell Dysfunction, Cancer and Infection
16 Jan 2018 - 20 Jan 2018 • Breckenridge, United States
Abstract:
T cell exhaustion is an acquired state of T cell dysfunction, associated with reduced T cell function, sustained expression of inhibitory receptors and a transcriptional state that is distinct from memory and effector T cells. T cell exhaustion is now recognized as a defining feature not only of chronic infections such as HIV, malaria and tuberculosis, but also of cancer. As a result, the search for effective approaches to reverse T cell exhaustion is the focus of immense therapeutic development. However, the similarities and differences between T cell dysfunction arising in chronic infection and tumors are not fully understood. Moreover, opportunities to identify new therapeutic approaches to reverse dysfunction based on parallels between the two disease states remain to be explored. This meeting will focus on the comparative biology and clinical therapeutics of T cell dysfunction in chronic viral infection and cancer. Drawing on leaders in fundamental T cell biology, computational science and clinical investigation, it will focus on common features and distinctive aspects of T cell dysfunction in cancer and chronic infection. The meeting will have broad relevance for T cell biology, tumor immunity, infectious disease and therapeutic development.

Keystone Symposia: Plant Signaling - Molecular Pathways and Network Integration
21 Jan 2018 - 24 Jan 2018 • Tahoe City, United States
Abstract:
Natural products, the structurally diverse family of small molecules produced by living organisms in an idiosyncratic fashion, have provided the basis for the majority of our therapeutic agents used to treat infectious diseases, cancer and immune disorders. Whole genome sequencing of producing organisms, especially bacteria and fungi, reveals that we have discovered only a fraction of these biosynthetically derived small molecules; a substantial fraction of natural product chemical space still represents “dark matter” (i.e., molecules predicted by bioinformatics analysis that have yet to be observed experimentally). Diversity springs from variations in genetically encoded biosynthetic enzymes, environmental stimuli that regulate expression of these genes and the inherent combinatorial expansion resulting from multi-enzyme biosynthetic pathways. Closing this gap between our current inventory and the genomic potential has become an important goal for basic and applied science; synthetic biology coupled with bioinformatic analysis has become the primary research tool for this effort. Bioinformatic mining continues to reveal the enzymes and pathways that nature uses, and synthetic biology has begun to reassemble or refactor these pathways to produce known and unknown products in new hosts. This conference brings together researchers in fields ranging from microbiology to botany, bioinformatics, gene synthesis and assembly, covering the spectrum from basic to industrial applications.

Keystone Symposia: Natural Products and Synthetic Biology - Parts and Pathways
21 Jan 2018 - 24 Jan 2018 • Olympic Valley, United States
Abstract:
Phenotypic plasticity is the quintessential characteristic of plant development and adaptation under fluctuating environments. This characteristic is the result of numerous signal sources (extra-, intra- and intercellular) being sensed, integrated and interpreted by a plethora of signaling components which are interacting in a highly coordinated manner. Recent advances in molecular biology, chemistry (i.e., chemical genetics and development of novel probes) and computational approaches (i.e., mathematical modeling and network reconstruction) have greatly facilitated the discovery of novel signaling pathways as well as providing detailed molecular mechanisms for key components of the existing signaling pathway. However, many have yet to be discovered. The conference features leaders in the plant signaling field and encapsulates the most recent advances in this field, from single molecule chemistry to large-scale network analysis, with an emphasis on research areas such as growth and development, environmental responses and biological interactions in both model and non-model plant species. Therefore, this meeting will bring together a diverse community of scientists to interact, collaborate and share novel ideas, leading to the translation of this knowledge into new applications. Ultimately, unraveling the complexity of plant signaling networks will be an important step forward in securing global food production.

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: Translational Systems Immunology
28 Jan 2018 - 01 Feb 2018 • Snowbird, Utah, United States
Abstract:
This conference will cover the exciting technology advances that are enhancing our ability to elucidate human immune function and networks as well as practical applications in drug and biomarker discovery and patient stratification. The meeting begins with a look at progress in human genetics and the use of sequencing to assign functional mutations to rare human immune phenotypes. The impact of common variants on immune function requires larger sample sizes, and speakers will cover how genome-wide high-throughput genomics in combination with detailed phenotyping and physiologically relevant perturbations are providing foundational data sets that allow an unbiased view of immune function in cells and tissues. Also discussed will be emerging computational and analytical methods that enable integration and interpretation of high-content molecular data. The meeting will then move on to look at the application of these technological advances, expanding investigation to study the immune response in tissues and organs to enable a deeper understanding of interaction between immune and non-immune cells and their respective roles in disease states. Critical to clinical progress is the translation of systems immunology research into novel therapies and diagnostic or prognostic tests. Sessions themed around infectious disease and vaccine development advances in immune-oncology and patient stratification in complex disease and treatment response aim to provide depth from foundational science to clinical translation. Finally, a key goal is fostering collaboration across disciplines and the development of novel ideas. The meeting will be relevant for immunologists, computational biologists and clinicians with an interest in molecular characterization of the immune system.

Keystone Symposia: Frontiers in Islet Biology and Diabetes
04 Feb 2018 - 08 Feb 2018 • Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
Diabetes mellitus is a pandemic disease rooted in defects of multiple organs. Autoimmune destruction of pancreatic islet beta cells (type 1 diabetes) or relentless deterioration in beta cell function from excessive systemic insulin demand (type 2 diabetes) culminates in severe or lethal metabolic derangement. Inter-organ signaling has emerged as a crucial mechanism for achieving metabolic balance, including responses by peripheral insulin-target organs that, in turn, remotely regulate islet activity. This meeting will focus on crucial aspects of beta cell biology, including islet development, pancreas cellular plasticity, beta cell surrogate generation from stem cells, novel gene editing technologies, and immune-islet interactions, as well as translation of basic discoveries into novel therapeutic trials for diabetic patients. This meeting aims to encourage the presentation of novel concepts, foster useful interactions between participants from academia and industry, and accelerate interdisciplinary approaches in diabetes research.

Keystone Symposia: Mobile Genetic Elements and Genome Plasticity
11 Feb 2018 - 15 Feb 2018 • Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract:
Transposable elements are potent sources of genetic variation that also regulate the expression of large gene networks. They constitute the majority of genomic DNA in many eukaryotes, and they dramatically shape genetic content by causing insertions, deletions, rearrangements and sequence duplications. Of increasing significance is the link of these mobile elements to diseases such as cancer and neurodegeneration. Sequencing of human populations demonstrates that active transposable elements are substantially more prevalent than previously appreciated. The aims of this conference are to: 1) Apply recent innovations in high-throughput sequencing and genome analysis to the study of transposon biology and genome dynamics; 2) Discuss the discovery of cellular systems that inhibit transposon activity as examples of the evolutionary arms race between mobile DNA and their hosts; 3) Describe active transposition during neurogenesis and in tumor cells and raise questions about the role of mobile DNA in brain development and cancer; and 4) Discern mechanistic aspects of element mobility from bacteria to humans. This symposium is designed to foster ties between leaders in the field of transposon function and biology with the pioneers of genome analysis, a link that is still tenuous and nascent. Discussions of transposon activity and genome dynamics will focus on mechanistic models. Methods applied to these problems will include molecular structures, biochemistry, expression studies and bioinformatic analyses. The transposons and hosts represented in this conference include diverse examples from eubacteria, archaea, protists, plants and mammals.

Keystone Symposia: Uncomplicating Diabetes - Reducing the Burden of Diabetes-Related End-Organ Injury
25 Feb 2018 - 01 Mar 2018 • Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract:
This Keystone Symposia conference will address diabetic complications which remain the major cause of morbidity and mortality in the diabetic population. Although the outlook has improved over the last two decades with respect to diabetic vascular disease, these complications remain a major burden with the underlying explanation for these complications at a molecular and cellular level as yet not fully clarified. With recent advances in the management of diabetes, particularly new classes of glucose-lowering agents, it is critical to determine if these new therapies have both glucose-dependent and independent effects in reducing diabetes-related end-organ injury. With major advances in our understanding of key pathological features of diabetic complications such as angiogenesis, fibrosis, inflammation and vascular remodeling, albeit in non-diabetic contexts, now is the time to translate this new knowledge to the field of diabetic complications. By learning from and recruiting such researchers into the field of diabetic complications, there is a great opportunity to develop novel, highly innovative approaches to identify new targets in order to discover new ways to treat, reverse or prevent diabetic complications that lead to premature atherosclerosis, heart failure, blindness, cognitive impairment and end-stage renal disease. This meeting is paired with "Vascular Biology and Human Diseases: From Molecular Pathways to Novel Therapeutics."

Keystone Symposia: Noncoding RNAs - Form, Function, Physiology
25 Feb 2018 - 01 Mar 2018 • Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
Recent research has revealed pervasive transcription of eukaryotic genomes outside of protein-coding genes. The resulting noncoding RNA transcripts come in many forms, perform diverse functions and play critical roles in organismal health and disease. Tens of thousands of noncoding RNAs have been identified thus far, but we are still at the earliest stages of understanding their regulation and function. Such knowledge will be critical in order to harness the full potential of noncoding RNAs for the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. To address this gap in our understanding, this conference aims to: 1) Bring together a multi-disciplinary group of scientists at all career stages to share their latest research in this field; 2) Provide a forum for the presentation of cutting-edge data on noncoding RNA structure, function and their roles in physiology and disease; and 3) Offer junior scientists outstanding mentoring and networking opportunities through close interactions with senior investigators. It is anticipated that the interactions of participants with diverse backgrounds, expertise and experimental models will spur new lines of investigation and collaborations that will lead to breakthroughs in our understanding of the noncoding transcriptome.

Abstract:
The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on DNA Damage, Mutation and Cancer is developed around the theme of exploiting fundamental knowledge to advance treatment and prevention. Rich and ever-increasing information is available on the specific mutations that are the molecular basis of cancer. Many mutations can be traced to specific types of damage to the DNA, while others arise from DNA replication errors or unknown causes. Technologies are being refined to determine the origins of these mutations, and monitor the accuracy and reproducibility of cancer genomic data. Biological and structural analyses can assess which mutations are functionally relevant. Specific mutations can confer vulnerabilities, making individual cancers more responsive to treatment with DNA damaging agents.

Gordon Research Conference — Cyclic Nucleotide Phosphodiesterases
10 Jun 2018 - 15 Jun 2018 • Newry, ME, United States
Abstract:
The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on Cyclic-Nucleotide Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) will focus on efforts to develop the therapeutic potential of phosphodiesterase modulators while also highlighting new biology relevant to the PDEs. As the sole means for terminating the intracellular signals carried by ubiquitous second messengers cAMP and cGMP, the PDEs are uniquely positioned to regulate a host of signaling cascades involved in cell to cell communication, metabolism and gene regulation. Unique elements of the quaternary structure of each family has allowed for the generation of selective inhibitors despite the high level of sequence identity in the active site of the enzymes. Only two families, PDE 6 and 11, still await the development of useful preclinical tools/inhibitors and drug candidates are in or nearing human studies for PDE 1, 2,3,4,5, 9 and 10. Clinical data is accumulating on the effects of PDE 3, 4, 5, 9 and 10 inhibition although only the effects of PDE5 inhibition have been subject to extensive, albeit poorly undocumented, profiling.
