Cell Death Pathways
joint with Mitochondrial Dynamics and Physiology
Organizer(s): Eric H. Baehrecke and Guy S. Salvesen
Date: March 22 - 27, 2009
Location: Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, BC, Canada
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Programmed cell death plays a critical role during development and adult homeostasis by eliminating unneeded and damaged cells, and defects in cell death can result in a wide range of diseases. While studies of apoptotic cell death have defined central regulatory mechanisms including a role for mitochondria, the relationship between core apoptosis factors, mitochondrial physiology, and how this relates to normal and aberrant development remains unsolved. The purpose of this meeting is to define the relationship between mitochondria and cell death pathways. The meeting will focus on the relationship between apoptosis regulatory pathways, mitochondrial physiology, metabolism, and non-apoptotic death mechanisms in the context of normal development and pathological situations including degenerative disorders and cancer. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be significantly enhanced by the concurrent meeting “Mitochondrial Dynamics and Physiology”, which will share a keynote address and two plenary sessions with this meeting.
