Summary of Meeting:
Oxygen is the substrate of multicellular life. Reduced oxygen availability (hypoxia) is sensed and transduced into changes in the activity or expression of cellular macromolecules. These responses impact on all areas of biology and medicine. The goals of the meeting are: • To understand the molecular mechanisms underlying responses to hypoxia that affect protein activity, protein synthesis, protein stability, mRNA synthesis, and mRNA stability, including the role of hypoxia-inducible factor 1 as a master regulator of oxygen homeostasis and its oxygen-dependent regulation by prolyl and asparaginyl hydroxylases. • To understand the role of hypoxia as a stimulus for normal developmental and physiological processes, including hypoxia-induced changes in vascularization. • To understand the role of hypoxia in the pathogenesis of common human diseases including cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic lung disease, and diabetes, which account for the majority of deaths in developed countries. • The development of novel therapeutic strategies that target hypoxia response pathways.
