Symposium - Breckenridge, CO, United States
Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that plays important roles in cell stress management and nutrient homeostasis. Following the landmark discoveries of the molecules controlling autophagy in yeast, genetic studies in multicellular organisms have revealed diverse roles for autophagy in development, physiology and in the etiology and pathogenesis of multiple age-associated disorders. Hence, interest in manipulating autophagy to treat human disease has rapidly intensified. The aims of this conference are to: 1) Gather experts together with junior scientists and researchers new to this field in a setting that supports structured and casual interactions; 2) Promote exchange of cutting edge, innovative and unpublished science relevant to the roles of autophagy in healthy, aging and pathologic cell contexts; and 3) Expedite discoveries that advance mechanistic knowledge of autophagy and facilitate clinical opportunities for the treatment and diagnosis of diseases caused by the mis-regulation of this process. INNOVATION - This symposium will explore the frontiers of autophagy research, with themes that focus on newly discovered molecules, pathways and mechanisms that specify forms of autophagy in development and disease. We propose multiple novel session topics based on recent discoveries in this field. Emphasis will be placed on how our emerging understanding of autophagy may influence disease. Interdisciplinary leaders of the autophagy field will gather together with junior scientists to share discoveries and exchange ideas. The collegial atmosphere of this conference is designed to enable brainstorming and promote collaborations to advance our understanding of the basic mechanisms controlling autophagy, and how altered autophagy may influence disease.
