Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

Glucose Transport: Gateway for Metabolic Systems Biology

Posted on Jun 4, 2015 12:58:00 AM

Conference - Big Sky, MT, United States
This FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) is one of the longest-running summer conferences in the history of the FASEB series, originally launched in the early 1990s in recognition of the cloning and characterization of a subset of the major glucose transporter isoforms. Over the ensuing years, the meeting has continued to feature important advances in glucose transporter biology, and has also evolved to embrace emergent topics in metabolic control mechanisms as they relate to chronic diseases and conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. The meeting has consistently attracted major leaders in these fields, and also with representation of emergent young scientists. Recent progress in this area of research has been explosive. This conference will be particularly timely in helping to fully appreciate the significance of recent developments. This year's conference will provide a lively mix of glucose transporter biology, metabolic regulation, including application of "omics" and systems biology methods in this arena, and multiple lectures that feature disease translational themes. A particular focus will be cardiac and skeletal muscle metabolism and muscle performance in health and disease, featuring scientists that lead this field as well as younger faculty in the early stages of their independent careers.
