Biology of Hypoxia: The Role of Oxygen Sensing in Development, Normal Function and Disease
Organizer(s): Randall S. Johnson, Amato Giaccia and M. Celeste SimonDate: March 25 - 30, 2004
Location: Sheraton Steamboat Resort, Steamboat Springs, CO, USA
Upon completion of this conference, participants should be able to: - Understand the most current and important aspects of hypoxia research generally - Appreciate current understanding of relationships between hypoxia and angiogenesis - Understand the relationship between oxygen sensing and metabolic function, particularly as it relates to cell and tissue survival during hypoxic injury - Appreciate current thinking on the role of oxygen sensing and hypoxic response in ischemic injuries, such as stroke and myocardial infarction - Gain an understanding of current ideas about the molecular sensing and signaling mechanisms induced by hypoxia - Understand the developmental roles oxygen sensing fulfill in model organisms, and gain insights into how these are relevant to human biology/pathology. A chief objective will be to bring the very disparate groups that work on hypoxia together. There is currently no other meeting where this occurs, and it will allow, we believe, unprecedented opportunities for cross-fertilization and collaboration to occur. A number of controversies on the mechanisms and effects of oxygen exist in the current literature; this meeting will bring the various points of view into the same setting and will allow a consensus on these issues to be built.
