Biology of Sirtuins
Organizer(s): Raul Mostoslavsky, Shin-ichiro Imai, Marcia C. Haigis, Eric M. VerdinDate: March 08 - 12, 2015
Location: Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza Hotel, Santa Fe, NM, USA
The biology of sirtuins, a unique class of NAD+-dependent enzymes that modify diverse protein substrates, has rapidly emerged in the past decade as regulators of critical biological processes, and the field will further evolve into many interdisciplinary areas of biomedical science in coming years. Furthermore, sirtuins are now clearly recognized as important targets for preventive and therapeutic interventions against a wide variety of diseases. Therefore, this second Keystone Symposia meeting on sirtuin biology will particularly focus on integrative aspects of diverse sirtuin functions, featuring eight interdisciplinary sessions and one workshop. Because there is an increasing enthusiasm for sirtuin biology across the globe, it is critical to provide such a forum where the significance of the “integrative biology of sirtuins” can be fully discussed and interdisciplinary interactions will be stimulated among people from many different fields.
