DPJAward — Mitochondria and Medicine: The 2017 Dr. Paul Janssen Award Symposium
13 Sep 2017 • New York, United States
Abstract:
The 2017 Dr. Paul Janssen Award Symposium will honor Dr. Douglas C. Wallace for his groundbreaking work on mitochondrial genetic inheritance and the role of mitochondria in medicine. The Mitochondrion, the primary regulator of cellular energy metabolism, has additional diverse cellular functions, including in cell signaling, cell cycle regulation, and reactive oxygen species generation. Dr. Wallace made the landmark discovery that human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is maternally inherited. He and others have since shown that mtDNA mutations and mitochondrial damage contribute to or cause a wide range of diseases, including metabolic and degenerative diseases, cancer, and other age-related diseases. During this symposium, Dr. Wallace and fellow prominent scientists, including Michio Hirano, MD, of Columbia University, Carla Koehler, PhD, of the University of California, Los Angeles, and Gerald S. Shadel, PhD, of the Yale School of Medicine will discuss the diverse roles of mitochondria in human health.

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.

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: Atherosclerosis: Lessons Learned and Concepts Challenged
04 Feb 2018 - 08 Feb 2018 • Taos, New Mexico, United States
Abstract:
Atherosclerosis is a chronic, systemic disease process whereby fatty deposits, inflammation and fibrosis accumulate in arterial vessel walls. Organs systems, including heart, brain, kidneys, as well as extremities, can be damaged, leading to atherosclerosis-driven clinical outcomes. According to the American Heart Association, 15.5 million Americans have coronary heart disease, of which 7.6 million experienced myocardial infarction. These statistics are reflective of global incidence. Treatment of atherosclerosis often begins with robust cholesterol-lowering treatments, yet many patients continue to experience cardiovascular events. Recent attempts to provide cardiovascular protection to such patients have included anti-inflammatory and HDL-raising therapeutic approaches that have yielded little benefit. Building knowledge of atherosclerosis disease etiology, defining unique attributes of patient differences as simple as sex or genetic inheritance, and using technology to identify patients with early disease is foundational for the scientific community to develop urgently needed therapeutics. The current concept of acute coronary syndrome (“the vulnerable plaque”) and widely applied animal models are debated because clinical presentation, underlying pathology and pathogenetic mechanisms are subject to change due to improved medical treatment. The goals of this meeting are to: 1) Challenge current dogma of atherosclerosis etiology and explore intra-organ cross-talk that may underlie disease evolution; 2) Consider emerging risk factors and their origins as intervention targets; and 3) Explore cutting-edge technologies to discover new therapeutic targets and approaches for drug development. By bringing together scientists from preclinical to clinical settings and from industry to academic institutions, this conference will nurture discussions to translate breakthrough discoveries into therapeutics.

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.
