Keystone Symposia: Cell Competition in Development and Disease
24 Feb 2019 - 28 Feb 2019 • Lake Tahoe, California, United States
Abstract:
Cell competition represents a radical departure from the established view that embryonic development is simply a matter of following a preprogrammed set of rules. Instead, it is a highly conserved process that promotes the context-dependent elimination of less fit cells and stimulates growth of more fit cells during growth and homeostasis. Although it has long been known that the basis of competition is the ability of growing cells to monitor fitness of their neighbors, and can be induced via differences in protein production capacity, Myc levels and apico-basal cell polarity, only recently have signaling and effector mechanisms been identified. This conference aims to bring together, for the first time, researchers, from diverse fields who study competitive and cooperative interactions between cells. It will cover recent findings on quality control systems, developing tissues, stem cell populations and tumorigenesis, as well as address important evolutionary aspects of competitive and cooperative behavior in diverse model systems. New technologies have uncovered the prevalence of cell competition in humans, with surprising outcomes and implications for human disease. As the first broad conference of this sort, it will define critical questions shared by the diverse investigators and help shape this exciting and emerging field. Given the wide range of developmental and homeostatic systems that are controlled by cell competition, understanding the mechanisms and consequences of competitive interactions may permit the manipulation of these processes for therapeutic purposes.

Lifestyle Medicine: Tools for Promoting Healthy Change
03 May 2019 - 04 May 2019 • Boston, MA, United States
Abstract:
This immersive, two-day Harvard Medical School CME course offers state-of-the-art strategies to guide patients to healthier lives. Education includes evidence-based strategies, tools and techniques to effect healthier changes in patients (and ourselves), including nutrition, exercise, sleep, weight loss, and stress management. This course also provides updates on payment structures that reward clinicians based upon patients’ health behaviors and health outcomes. This course has sold out each of the past 4 years. Past participants report a renewed passion for practicing medicine and reduced personal stress as they themselves learn to enhance their own health and to serve as role models for their patients.

The Protein Aggregation Conference: From Structure to In Vivo Sequelae
09 Jun 2019 - 14 Sep 2019 • Snowmass Village, Colorado, United States
Organizer:
Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB)
Abstract:
This FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) is the 12th meeting in a series that began in 1995. It will feature cutting edge research on protein folding and aggregation in neurodegenerative and systemic diseases, such as Alzheimer's and diabetes, and in normal physiology, such as functional amyloid formation. Speakers will cover a range of mechanisms underlying protein aggregate formation and the cellular response. New findings in intracellular phase transitions and intrinsically disordered proteins will be highlighted, along with emerging technologies in biophysics, bioengineering, structural biology, and imaging for high-resolution studies of protein aggregation. Novel therapeutic intervention strategies and challenges will also be featured.
Topics:
research, physiology, protein aggregation formation, cellular response, FASEB, biophysics, bioengineering, structural biology,

The Regulation of Glucose Metabolism Conference
16 Jun 2019 - 21 Jun 2019 • Palm Springs, California, United States
Organizer:
Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB)
Abstract:
This year’s conference will include a lively mix of investigators studying glucose transporter biology and metabolic regulation, including researchers applying “fluxomics” and systems biology methods to advance our understanding of metabolic health. We have invited approximately 40 scientists from institutions and companies worldwide to speak, and an additional dozen prominent scientists to serve as session chairs and discussion leaders. In addition to these speakers, we will be selecting short talks from abstracts to be presented by junior trainees. We will also run several poster sessions and, continuing a new and very well-received event launched at the 2013 meeting, conduct a two-hour “open mike” session for volunteers to present recent discoveries for discussion.
Topics:
FASEB, 2019 Conference, Science Research Conference, glucose metabolism, fluxomics,
