Nuclear Receptor Pathways to Metabolic Regulation
joint with Metabolic Syndrome and Cardiovascular Risk
Organizer(s): Mitchell A. Lazar and Richard A. HeymanDate: March 27 - April 01, 2007
Location: Sheraton Steamboat Resort, Steamboat Springs, CO, USA
The most exciting current research on nuclear receptors and metabolism takes a systems approach, utilizing functional genomics, molecular biology, and bioinformatics to understand the role of nuclear receptors in physiology and in the pathophysiology of metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes ,and metabolic syndrome. The major roadblocks to this research include the biological variation and technical precision of the state-of-art-measures of RNA, protein, and gene occupation by transcription factors, and the ability to accurately relate changes in nuclear receptor ligands and abundance to phenotypic changes. The goal of this meeting is to bring together investigators working on different nuclear receptors, and the regulation of different metabolic pathways, to present the latest and most exciting paradigmatic and technical breakthroughs.
