3rd Nuclear Receptors Conference

Synopsis

We understand that registering for a conference is not essential right now. Many researchers will be unable to register for a future conference of interest if their organisation is temporarily closed or preventing travel. Therefore, you can simply register your interest here without committing to attending, and our team will keep you updated regarding deadline reminders and grant opportunities. We hope this service is helpful during this difficult time.

Nuclear Receptors are, physiologically and pharmacologically, a critical superfamily of transcription factors. They drive key processes at every stage from development and reproduction to ageing and cancer. They are critical determinants of everyday health via their roles in metabolism and circadian rhythms. Nuclear receptors allow external factors to influence cellular pathways and the fact that many bind and are activated by small molecules means they represent highly druggable targets; currently, 13% of FDA-approved drugs target nuclear receptors.

This meeting will address the new roles and novel crosstalk mechanisms that are emerging for many of the 48 human nuclear receptors, in health and disease. For example, it has long been known that the estrogen receptor drives progression of the majority of breast cancers, and patients with estrogen receptor-positive disease are treated using antiestrogens or aromatase inhibitors to inhibit estrogen signalling. Now however, it is apparent that activation of other nuclear receptors (e.g. progesterone and androgen receptors) can inhibit breast cancer progression, resulting in clinical trials of drugs that activate these receptors and studies to elucidate cross talk between these critical regulatory signalling pathways. The androgen receptor, itself long the main therapeutic driver and target in prostate cancer, is emerging as a key player in metabolic disease, while conversely other nuclear receptors including the glucocorticoid receptor and several orphan nuclear receptors are implicated in prostate cancer progression. Meanwhile, given the impact of many nuclear receptors on the central nervous system, it is unsurprising that they are being explored in the context of neurological disorders and depression. Thus, there is wide scope for re-purposing of licensed drugs and development of new NR-targeting therapies for a host of conditions and diseases.

Crosstalk between nuclear receptors and other fundamental processes is another exciting expanding area that will also be covered. DNA damage repair pathways are inextricably linked to steroid signalling via transcriptional processes, with implications for drug combinations in several diseases. Hitherto unsuspected roles of nuclear receptors in epigenetic control and the processing and function of non-coding RNAs opens up the capacity of this superfamily to further means of impacting on development and normal functioning, but also on disease development.

This unique meeting will bring together many of the leading figures in nuclear receptor research from across the globe, to discuss emerging roles and their implications for health and disease – and both human and drug development – in an intimate meeting that will generate meaningful idea exchange and interaction that will help to further shape this influential field.

Located just 8 miles from Tulum, this hidden gem is the perfect destination for those who love admiring, exploring or enjoying nature. Fiesta Americana Tulkal Riviera Maya will captivate your senses with unparalleled natural views, bold flavors, clear blue skies, the gentle touch of the cool breeze and the irresistible aromas of this tropical paradise. We have a feeling this is going to be a new favourite amongst our delegates.

Location

Stretching from the fishing village of Puerto Morelos to the biosphere reserve of Sian Ka'an, the Mayan Riviera offers an unforgettable Caribbean coastline experience with beautiful white-sand beaches and brilliant turquoise colored water. This world-renowned paradise is home to mangroves and lagoons, ancient Mayan cities, ecological reserves and adventure parks, and the world's second largest coral reef.

The hotel is located just a few miles from Tulum, a town on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It’s known for its spectacluar beaches and well-preserved ruins of an ancient Mayan port city. The area also offers incredible cavern diving opportunties and beautiful cenotes to explore. We would highly recommend joining one of the group activities to Tulum or the Gran Cenote - they will make for an unforgettable conference experience!
