NF-kappaB Signaling and Biology: From Bench to Bedside
joint with Ubiquitin Signaling
Organizer(s): Michael Karin and Hao WuDate: March 18 - 23, 2012
Location: Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, BC, Canada
The regulation and function of NF-kB have captivated molecular and cellular biologists, as well as immunologists, pathologists and drug developers for many years. Studies of NF-kB and its regulation have taught us many fundamental lessons and principals in basic biological sciences as well as in biomedicine. Although rapidly reaching maturity, with 25 years since its discovery, the NF-kB field remains vibrant and fertile, and never ceases to amaze with new groundbreaking discoveries. The Keystone Symposia meeting on NF-kB Signaling and Biology: From Bench to Bedside will cover the basic biochemistry of NF-kB signaling; how NF-kkB accomplishes its main job as a transcription factor; the roles of the NF-kB system in immunity and inflammation; how NF-kB controls cell death, survival and metabolism; and how all of these functions go awry during disease development – something that we have learned both from studies of genetically altered mice and from studies of human genetic defects and pathology. Finally, this meeting will teach us how we might fix and cure these problems through the pharmacological targeting of the NF-kB system. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be significantly enhanced by the concurrent meeting on Ubiquitin Signaling, which will share a keynote address and three plenary sessions with this meeting.
