Cell Death Signaling in Cancer and the Immune System
Organizer(s): Gustavo Amarante-Mendes, Douglas R. Green and Kim Newton
Date: October 28 - November 02, 2014
Location: Casa Grande Hotel, Guarujá, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Organized in collaboration with the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) - Brazil. Sponsored by AbbVie Inc., Genentech, Inc. H3 Biomedicine Inc. and TESARO, Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
Cellular decisions to live or die are fundamental to development and adult homeostasis, playing roles in a wide variety of physiological and pathological processes. These include cancer, degenerative disease, innate and adaptive immunity, ischemia-reperfusion injury and infectious disease. Over the past decades, the fundamental molecular mechanisms underlying one form of cell death, apoptosis, have been largely defined. Other forms of cell death, such as programmed necrosis or autophagic cell death, are not as well understood. In this meeting, the pathways that impact on a cell’s decision to live or die will be presented in the context of physiology and disease, and ways to influence that decision therapeutically will be explored. The consequence of cell death for the body is also of great interest, as the clearance of dying cells impacts on other physiological processes. The successful elucidation of the molecular pathways controlling and mediating apoptosis has come to fruition as agents for cancer and other therapies are entering the clinic. Similar promise exists for other forms of cell death as our knowledge of these advances. In addition, we are beginning to understand how processes relating to cell death and survival play roles in other biological processes, such as the secretion of cytokines and the response to infection. This meeting brings together researchers in the fields of cell death and survival from around the world. As the study of cell death moves beyond the central mechanisms of apoptosis to wider issues of regulation and other forms of cell death, this vibrant area of research widens its influence and importance for human health and disease.
