joint with Metabolism and Angiogenesis
Organizer(s): William G. Kaelin, Jr., Benjamin F. Cravatt III and Peter K. JacksonDate: March 16 - 21, 2014
Location: Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, BC, Canada
The recent discovery of mutations affecting metabolic enzymes such as succinate dehydrogenase, fumarate hydratase and isocitrate dehydrogenase provides genetic evidence that altered cellular metabolism can cause cancer. Moreover, it has become apparent that a number of proteins that regulate processes pertinent to cellular transformation, such as enzymes that affect chromatin structure, respond to specific cellular metabolites. Finally, technologies for monitoring cellular metabolism are improving rapidly including technologies that lend themselves to non-invasive imaging. The goals of this meeting are to bring together a diverse group of scientists from academia and industry with basic and translational interests surrounding cancer metabolism. A particular focus will be on metabolic enzymes as potential targets for treating and/or imaging cancer cells. Toward this end this meeting engages a diverse group of scientists including biologists, chemists and engineers. This meeting provides participants with a greater understanding of the language and logic of cellular metabolism and provides a sense of the translational opportunities emerging from our growing knowledge of the role that altered metabolism plays in cancer.
