The Chemistry and Biology of Cell Death
joint with Mitochondrial Dynamics and Physiology
Organizer(s): Guy S. Salvesen, Matthew S. Bogyo and Jennie R. Lill
Date: February 18 - 23, 2014
Location: Santa Fe Community Convention Center, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Sponsored by Genentech, Inc. and Infinity Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
Cell death can occur through distinct mechanisms, and the signaling pathways leading to these lethal outcomes are becoming established. Although therapeutic strategies targeting specific cell death mediators were introduced over 10 years ago, the breadth of cell death mechanisms should present numerous additional possibilities for drug development. To better understand the Achilles’ heels for targeted therapy, we need to comprehend the chemistry behind cell death paradigms. Coupling the breadth of chemical biology with genetic analysis of cell death pathways in model organisms should provide not only a comprehensive understanding, but reveal tractable targets. This meeting will address the normal regulation and pathogenic dysfunction of distinct cell death modalities, discuss new modalities for therapeutic intervention and highlight chemical biology efforts that are leading to a better understanding of the role that cell death plays in health and disease. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be significantly enhanced by the concurrent meeting on “Mitochondrial Dynamics and Physiology,” which will share keynote addresses and a plenary session with this meeting.
