3rd Nuclear Receptors Conference

 #NR2022


04 May 2022 - 07 May 2022

Cancun, Mexico

Chairs

Synopsis

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.

Key Sessions

  • Nuclear receptors and cancer
  • Nuclear receptors in reproduction, development and metabolism
  • Nuclear receptors in central systems
  • Translating nuclear receptors to the clinic
  • Nuclear receptors in non-malignant disorders
  • Nuclear receptors, the genome and epigenome

This stylish hotel features contemporary Mexican architecture, including one of the largest and most impressive thatched-roof "palapas" in the entire country. There are cultural activities, arts and crafts and sports programs to keep you constantly entertained, plus time to relax and enjoy the Mayan culture, soak up the Caribbean sunshine and revel in the international ambiance that settles in after the sun goes down.

Throughout your stay delegates will enjoy a full meal plan, inclusive of beverages. Take your pick from the aromatic Asian delights at Kaumbu, traditional fare at El Mexicano, delicious international cuisine at Kalmia Buffet or perhaps sample the sumptuous Italian dishes at Rosato. There are also several other dining opportunities such as the Cevichería, Pizzeria, Sushi Corner, pool and lounge bar areas. The Gala Night with either a Mayan or Caribbean theme takes place on the third evening of the conference with a mouth-watering feast of local cuisine, an open bar and amazing local entertainment.  We welcome all delegates and their accompanying persons to the Gala Night – a truly fun filled night not to be missed!

Hotel Facilities

- Lagoon Pool
- Extensive Health Club and Spa
- Complimentary Wi-Fi in guest rooms and throughout hotel and conference areas

Location

Cancun is a delightful combination of natural beauty, islands, ecological reserves and white sandy beaches. However, besides sun, sand and sea, this destination also offers an infinite variety of underwater activities to choose from: the diving, snorkelling and fishing here are outstanding and you will find an undersea world packed with tropical fish that live on the second largest barrier reef in the world. Sports enthusiasts might choose one of the many eco-tourism activities, such as cycling or hiking through the tropical forest or kayaking through mangroves, or something a little more adventuresome, like zip lining through the treetops.

Apart from the more well-known ancient Mayan archealogical sites such as Tulum, Cobá and Chichén Itzá you may like to visit the Aktun Chen caverns, voted one of the Top 10 underwater walks by National Geographic described as a truly magical experience.

Local Activities

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we will not be offering group activities on this occasion. However, if you wish to explore Mexico or organise an individual trip, we recommend the following activities. We ask that any off-site trips are organised during free time or pre/post conference, to ensure you are fully present for the meeting.

-   AquaWorld. Lots of water based activities available including snorkelling, paragliding, glass bottom boat trips and more. Approx. 10 minute walk from the hotel. More information- https://aquaworld.com.mx/en/tours/ 

-   Xcaret Park. Xcaret is a water, theme, amusement, eco-archaeological park and more, in one place. Due to its privileged location in the Mayan jungle among underground rivers, cenotes and facing the Caribbean Sea, there are lots of activities on offer. Approx. 1 hour drive from the hotel. More information - https://www.xcaret.com/en/about-xcaret/

-   Tulum Mayan Ruins (Day Trip). The Mayan ruins in Tulum, Mexico, are a must-see attraction for anyone visiting the gorgeous Riviera Maya. Built as a seaport fortress with steep cliffs and limestone walls, the ancient city is one of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites in Mexico, much of which still stands after more than 800 years. Approx. 1 hour 50 minutes drive from the hotel. More information -  https://www.islandlifemexico.com/tulum-ruins-visitors-guide/

-   Isla Mujeres (Day Trip). A beautiful, peaceful paradise just across the Bahia de Mujeres (Bay of Women) from Cancun, Mexico. Known for beautiful white sand beaches, calm crystal clear turquoise waters and the friendliest locals in the Mexican Caribbean. With the beauty of the Caribbean, the heritage of the Mayans, and the easygoing charm of the people, Isla Mujeres has become a haven for people from all over the world. Approx. 1 hour 5 minutes from the hotel via ferry. The Gran Puerto Cancun (Ultramar) ferry dock is located in Puerto Juarez, a few minutes from downtown Cancun. The boats leave every half hour from 5:00 am until 9:30 pm and every hour after that. The crossing takes about 15 minutes. More information - https://www.isla-mujeres.net/

-   Chichen Itza (Day Trip). Chichen Itza was one of the most important city-states in pre-Hispanic America. It’s one of the 7 Wonders of the World and is one of the most visited archaeological sites in Mexico. Chichen Itza is divided into Old Chichen and Chichen Itza where you can find 6 Mayan Ruins in Old Chichen and around 20 Mayan Ruins in Chichen Itza, making it a total of 26 Mayan Ruins to see on the Mayan Site. Approx. 2 hour 46 minutes drive from the hotel. More information - https://www.chichenitza.com/
