DNA Helicases, Cancer and Aging
Organizer(s): Ian D. Hickson and Judith Campisi
Date: March 12 - 17, 2002
Location: Granlibakken Tahoe, Tahoe City, CA, USA
Summary of Meeting:
Cancer and aging are frequently considered distinct disorders, although both are associated with genomic instability and are phenotypic consequences of the interplay between genes and the environment. The totally unexpected finding that defects in DNA helicases are responsible for several cancer-prone and/or premature aging syndromes in humans, indicates a need to integrate studies of the basic biology of helicases with studies of cancer and longevity. This conference will provide a unique opportunity to bring together world leaders in aging and cancer biology, with experts on the structure and function of DNA helicases. Sessions will cover structural and functional characterization of DNA helicases from humans and model organisms, and their roles in cancer predisposition or premature aging disorders. By bringing together scientists from the fields of structural biology, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, cancer and aging research, the conference will facilitate the application of fundamental studies in biology to improvements in human health.
