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.

Keystone Symposia: Lymphocytes and their Roles in Cancer
11 Feb 2018 - 15 Feb 2018 • Keystone, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
Leverage of the body’s own immune system is revolutionizing the way that we treat cancer as it can lead to dramatic and durable responses. Such anti-tumor therapies include reactivation of anti-tumor T cells, expansion of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs), Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells and a variety of cancer vaccines. The focus or target of most these approaches are cells of the lymphocytic lineage (T, B, NK, dendritic cells), key components of both adaptive and innate immune response. At the same time, lymphocytes can also be malignant, as in the case of a large number of lymphocytic leukemia and lymphoma subtypes, and active components of the immune microenvironment, controlling tumor growth and anti-tumor response. This conference for the first time brings together scientists from these different areas of lymphocyte biology and provides an overview of lymphocyte development, transformation, terminal differentiation, location within the tumor microenvironment and anti-tumor activity. The conference also provides an update on novel therapy protocols that attempt to harness the function of lymphocytes against cancer and state-of-the-art technologies, including imaging and DNA/RNA sequencing approaches, that will help us visualize and molecularly dissect anti-tumor responses in experimental systems and cancer patients.

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.
