Congratulations to the recipient of this year's Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology, Yoshinori Ohsumi,
for his seminal work discovering mechanisms of autophagy.
We invite you to learn more about autophagy and the future of the field from four leading experts who sat down in 2015 at Keystone Symposia's autophagy conference in Keystone, Colorado, USA and again at our 2016 conference in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.
Panelists: Eric Baehrecke (Moderator), University of Massachusetts Medical Center Ana Maria Cuervo, Albert Einstein College of Medicine Vojo Deretic, University of New Mexico School of Medicine Leon Murphy, Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research
The discussion focuses on:
What are the most exciting recent developments in autophagy research?
What are the greatest challenges, opportunities and priorities to be overcome?
Why should new researchers enter this field?
Where will the field go now and how do we accelerate clinical translation for treatment of human disease?
Date: Tuesday, October 18, 2016
Time: 1:00 – 2:30 PM EST
Panelists: Frank Slack (Moderator), Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Amy Pasquinelli, University of California, San Diego Pier Paolo Pandolfi, Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Anita Seto, miRagen Therapeutics, Inc.
Since the discovery of the catalytic role of RNAs three decades ago and the discovery of microRNAs two decades ago, the field has exploded with exciting new developments, many made possible by groundbreaking new technologies. Tune in October 18 to watch this lively panel discussion moderated by Frank Slack and then ask the panelists your questions in real time.
Among other topics, the discussion will focus on:
How do we better translate discoveries into therapies and diagnostic tools?
How can one narrow down the most promising target RNAs from a cast of thousands?
What are the best model systems in which to study them?
What are the priorities, obstacles and controversies facing the field?
What does the next decade or even century hold?
Those who register for the live webcast can offer their suggestions in advance for additional topics to be covered, as well as ask questions of the panelists during the live event.
