Cell Death, Cell Stress and Metabolism Conference

From Basic Mechanisms to Novel Treatment Options


14 Mar 2017 - 17 Mar 2017

Cancun, Mexico

Chairs

Synopsis

The interplay between cell death, cell stress and metabolism plays a crucial role in shaping normal turnover of tissues, in sensing of danger posed by pathogens or other damage and the immunological response that is mounted to response to them.

At this conference we will discuss the basic biological principles that govern cell death, cell stress and metabolism. We will also cover how cellular stress and alterations in metabolism influence the cellular death programs such as apoptosis, necroptosis, ferroptosis and others.

Importantly, this conference aims to become the go-to forum at which the most current and up-to-date therapeutic avenues in the fields of cell death, cell stress and metabolism will be presented and discussed.   

Target Audience

We anticipate representation from researchers interested in cell death, cell stress and metabolism in both academia and the biotech/pharma industries who want to be on top of these interconnected fields and participate in an international meeting serving as platform for presentation and discussion of the most up-to-date preclinical and clinical work emerging from them.

Learning Objectives

  1. To be on top of the field with the diversity of new mechanisms of cell death induction, in addition to apoptosis, which recently entered this field of research
  2. To understand the interplay between cell death, cell stress and metabolism
  3. To develop an understanding for where the treatment options are currently seen in these fields 
  4. To learn what is presently being developed preclinically and what is already in clinical trials
  5. To develop a good sense for where the opportunities for the future lie, both with respect of mechanistic insight and treatment options for the various diseases affected by dysregulated cell death, cell stress and metabolism

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!

The Fiesta Americana Condesa, Cancun is the 2015 Winner of the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and also received the Travellers Choice Award in 2014. 

The remains of ancient Mayan cities are scattered throughout the Yucatan Peninsula and no trip to Cancun would be complete without a visit to these majestic temples and pyramids set amongst lush tropical vegetation. We will be working very closely with a reputable tour company who will be organising trips to Tulum, Chichen Itza, Coba and Xcaret  to name a few, some of which may require a full day. Full day excursions will be arranged pre or post conference and may be on an individual or group booking so we would recommend booking extra nights to extend your stay as early as possible to avoid disappointment should these excursions be of interest to you and/or your party. For further information please contact us.

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.

Rio Secreto

Rio Secreto is an incredible underground nature reserve on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Located in the Riviera Maya 3 miles southwest of Playa del Carmen, Rio Secreto is a system of caves carved out over the course of several centuries by an underground river. Stretching approximately 8 miles, with 15 natural outlets, it’s the longest partially flooded cave on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. But what makes Rio Secreto unique is the fact that it’s semi-sunken, which means that you can hike or float through most of it.

We invite you to enjoy a whole day of fun and to assist to cultural events such as the Ritual Ceremony of the Voladores de Papantla, the Mayan Ball Game and the show Xcaret Mexico Espectacular.
