The NF-kappaB System in Health and Disease
Organizer(s): Alexander Hoffmann and Louis M. StaudtDate: February 23 - 28, 2014
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
The NF-kappaB System plays key roles in diverse physiological and pathological processes, involving innate and adaptive immunity, and many organs and cell types. The family of NF-kappaB transcription factors have overlapping and specific functions, and are regulated through numerous interconnected molecular mechanisms. The NF-kappaB System refers to the gene regulatory and signal regulatory networks (GRNs and SRNs), within which NF-kappaB transcription factors exert their activities. Those regulatory networks include mitogen-activated kinases, caspases and other apoptotic and necroptotic regulators, regulators of autophagy, cytoskeletal organization, and proliferation, as well as the interferon-regulatory innate immune network. Indeed understanding these processes as an interconnected system is paramount to studies of disease, as manifested by complex immunological, inflammatory, and tumor pathologies. To address these complexities and move towards a predictive understanding, this conference will emphasize the consideration of regulatory interactions, quantitative measurements, in silico modeling, and genome scale studies. It will provide an overview of the field and catalyze scientific interactions in the age of Systems Biology to advance post-genomic Immunology.
