Hypoxia: From Basic Mechanisms to Therapeutics
Organizer(s): Cormac T. Taylor, M. Celeste Simon, Sean P. Colgan and Roland H. WengerDate: May 12 - 17, 2015
Location: Royal Dublin Society, Dublin 4, Ireland
Tissue hypoxia occurs in a range of physiologic and pathophysiologic states. Consequently, the cellular response to hypoxia has important implications for both health and for diseases including (but not limited to) cancer, ischemia and chronic inflammation. Recently, the discovery and elucidation of specific hypoxia-inducible pathways has raised the possibility of developing new strategies for therapeutic benefit based on targeting hypoxia-sensitive pathways. The aim of this meeting is to disseminate up to date information on basic mechanisms of the cellular hypoxic response, discuss the impact of this response for health and disease and highlight the potential for developing new therapeutics based on our understanding of the pathways involved. It is anticipated that outcomes of this meeting will include the dissemination of new scientific knowledge, the discussion of new methodologies, the education of graduate students and fellows in the state-of-the-art and promoting new collaborations between clinicians, basic researchers and industrial partners. The Keystone Symposia Hypoxia meeting is widely accepted as the world’s leading conference addressing the topic and is a key date on the calendar for all researchers interested in this topic. We will bring together academic, clinical and industrial researchers to drive synergy through collaboration in developing the translational potential of targeting the HIF pathway for therapeutic benefit. This meeting will be held in conjunction with the European HypoxiaNET consortium.
