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 - Endoderm Development and Disease: Cross-Organ Comparison and Interplay
25 Feb 2018 - 01 Mar 2018 • Taos, New Mexico, United States
Abstract:
Organs do not function in isolation. In contrast to the majority of existing meetings that focus on individual organs (lung, pancreas, intestines, etc.), or individual pathways (FGF, WNT, Hippo, etc.), this conference offers a unique cross-organ perspective on development, homeostasis, repair, regeneration and pathogenesis. The endoderm is an ideal setting as it gives rise to the majority of our internal organs such as the thyroid, thymus, lungs, liver, pancreas, esophagus, stomach, intestine and prostate, etc. Associated with these organs is a wide spectrum of diseases, including asthma, diabetes, fibrosis, obesity, infections and cancer. This conference aims to achieve the following goals: 1) Synthesize similarities and differences of mechanisms of specification, morphogenesis, maturation, regeneration and pathogenesis across organs; 2) Use the simplicity of the developing organs to uncover complex disease mechanisms; 3) Investigate organ development and function in the context of other organs, the immune system and the nervous system; 4) Consider organ physiology and metabolism under the influence of the environment: bacteria, viruses, allergen, pollutants and circadian control; and 5) Share successful technologies across organ systems. Such a cross-sectional perspective brings together researchers across scientific disciplines who do not normally meet. The meeting will link development with physiology and help to establish a community of the next generation of researchers who will approach their scientific investigation with a broad, multi-systems view.

Keystone Symposia - Vascular Biology and Human Diseases: From Molecular Pathways to Novel Therapeutics
25 Feb 2018 - 01 Mar 2018 • Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract:
Recent years have seen rapid progress in our knowledge of how the vascular system is formed during embryo development and in adults expressing in proliferative diseases such as cancer. It has become unequivocally evident that endothelial cells express highly specific and distinct functions in arteries, veins and lymphatics. Moreover, endothelial cells are able to further modify their functional properties in order to meet the specific needs of the different organs. This conference will address the mechanisms that orchestrate organ-specific endothelial differentiation, making a connection between endothelial dysfunction and organ pathology. The major challenge will be to link our experimental knowledge to the understanding of human vascular diseases. The symposium will bring together teams of vascular biologists, neuroscientists, immunologists and clinicians from all over the world to share their recent discoveries and to direct future efforts to find novel and more precise therapies.

Keystone Symposia: Novel Aspects of Bone Biology
13 Jun 2018 - 16 Jun 2018 • Snowbird, Utah, United States
Abstract:
This conference presents recent progress made in two relatively novel areas of skeletal biology not covered by other meetings. The first one is the cross-talk between bone, hematopoiesis and leukemogenesis. The second is the study of the multiple endocrine functions of bone and how their study impacts on our understanding of multiple degenerative diseases. Meetings of bone biology are traditionally dominated by the need to explain the bases and to propose treatments for the most frequent bone disease: osteoporosis. Aside from this very vivid field, two other aspects of bone biology have developed in the last decade. A feature shared by these two aspects of biology is that they link bone biology to multiple other organs and to other functions besides making bones. These two aspects are the dialog between bone and hematopoiesis, whether physiological or pathological, and the endocrine functions of bone. This conference will showcase the many advances made in these two aspects of skeleton biology and how these developments have enriched our understanding of the pathogenesis of multiple degenerative diseases affecting the bone marrow, energy metabolism or the brain. Because of its very nature, this meeting will bring together investigators from different fields rarely provided with an opportunity to meet.
