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

Glucose Transport: Gateway for Metabolic Systems Biology

Posted on May 16, 2017 7:00:00 AM

Spotlight on Science Meetings, Conferences and Events brings you information on the following event: Glucose Transport: Gateway for Metabolic Systems Biology

This SRC will provide a lively mix of glucose transporter biology, metabolic regulation, and systems biology methods with multiple lectures that feature disease translational themes. This is one of the longest-running FASEB Science Research Conferences, 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, but 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, but also with representation of emergent young scientists.


  • neuroendocrine regulation of metabolism
  • liver metabolism and skeletal muscle metabolism in health and disease
The conference will feature scientists that lead this field as well as younger faculty in the early stages of their independent careers. We believe that the themes of the meeting are particularly well-aligned with challenges faced by the pharmaceutical and biotech industries in identifying new therapeutic targets that combat tractable disease mechanisms.
