Obesity and NAFLD: Mechanisms and Therapeutics
Organizer(s): Rebecca A. Haeusler, Shingo Kajimura and Alexei KharitonenkovDate: February 23 - 27, 2020
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
Energy metabolism underlies all facets of human health. With the rates of obesity and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) surging, understanding how energy metabolism is governed in healthy and diseased states is of the utmost concern. The focus of this Keystone Symposia is to bring obesity and NAFLD disease researchers together to identify metabolic disease factors and future directions. Halting the progression of NAFLD into nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is considered an unmet need in human health. Therefore, the conference program is designed to discuss both the regulatory elements driving the progression of obesity and NAFLD and the metabolic underpinnings of NASH. The program also includes sessions on metabolites, hormones, and cellular signaling pathways and features cutting edge therapeutic approaches for obesity and NASH. This conference will bring together scientists and physicians specializing in basic, translational, and clinical research, as well as industry scientists, to create a robust exchange of ideas on how to move the field forward.
