Molecular Cardiology: Disease Mechanisms and Experimental Therapeutics
joint with Mechanisms of Cardiac Growth, Death and Regeneration
Organizer(s): Joseph M. Metzger, Leslie A. Leinwand and Jeffery D. Molkentin
Date: February 22 - 27, 2011
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Sponsored by Bayer USA Foundation
Summary of Meeting:
Human health and wellness are advanced, both nationally and globally, by new mechanistic insights emanating from the field of molecular cardiology and its application to experimental cardiovascular therapeutics. This meeting is designed to attract leading laboratories, investigators, students and trainees in the field to address gaps in fundamental pathways in human heart functionality and how, when they become dysfunctional, they contribute to cardiac disease. The significance and impact of this meeting is further amplified by aligning in joint format with the parallel Keystone Symposia meeting on Mechanisms of Cardiac Growth, Death and Regeneration. Collectively, these meetings will address the fundamental mechanisms that regulate cardiac structure, function, and repair and how they relate to human heart disease. Another unique feature of this joint meeting stems from implementing and highlighting an Early Independent Career Research Competition and a dedicated Graduate Student and Postdoc Research Competition. Specific Objectives feature: 1) insights and controversies in the genetics, epigenetics and the biochemistry and physiology of cardiac cell growth; 2) emerging concepts in cardiac calcium handling and how new mechanistic insights are informing novel experimental therapeutics; and 3) mechanisms of inter- and intra-cellular cardiac communication in health and disease. The concurrent meeting format also aims to accomplish the following: 4) stimulate interactions among stem cell biologists and individuals studying cardiac growth, death and cardiac physiology; and 5) provide trainees with a significant learning experience through several mechanisms in addition to the usual lectures and poster presentations.
