Chemical Biology and Novel Tools in Pharmacology
Organizer(s): Laura L. Kiessling, Kevan M. Shokat and Jason E. Gestwicki
Date: February 12 - 16, 2012
Location: Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza Hotel, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Sponsored by Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research and Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
The best solutions to the most important problems in biomedical science have come from multi-disciplinary research. The discovery of new chemical probes and therapeutics requires cross-cutting expertise and the innovative application of new technologies. Scientific forums have become increasingly specialized and narrow in their scope. The specific purpose of the Keystone Symposia meeting on Chemical Biology and Novel Tools in Pharmacology is to initiate and foster active discussions between academic and industrial researchers in the broader area of pharmacological tools. Rather than focus on a specific disease, model system or technical method, this meeting will bring together a variety of experts whose primary, common trait is their innovative use of chemical and biological approaches to solve important problems in biology. From this organizing principle, the specific aims of this meeting are: (a) to assemble chemists and biologists who may not normally interact with each other; (b) to make new connections between chemists and biologists, academics and industrial scientists; and (c) to provide a forum for an open discourse of modern, cross-platform ideas. An unintended consequence of increasingly specialized forums for scientific discussion is the lack of mechanisms for dissemination of novel ideas, platforms and methodologies. The major innovation of this meeting is that it is designed to encourage and inspire researchers to explore and implement inter-disciplinary, emerging methods in chemical biology and pharmacology to their specific biological questions.
