Metabolism in Health and Disease Conference

Understanding metabolic regulation of physiology and pathology


24 May 2019 - 27 May 2019

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Chairs

Synopsis

The new millennium has seen a resurgence in our appreciation of metabolism as a central discipline in our understanding of human health and disease. Although the pathways necessary for ATP production and synthesis of macromolecules (nucleic acids, lipids, and amino acids) were elucidated decades ago, their role in determining cell fate or function has been uncovered only recently.  The discovery that oncogenes and tumour suppressors reprogram nutrient uptake and metabolism in malignant cells has re-energized the field of cancer metabolism and more broadly stimulated a second “golden age” of disease-oriented research in biochemistry. Recent work has also shown that metabolites themselves influence signal transduction and gene expression, indicating a surprising degree of crosstalk between metabolism and other regulatory networks in cells and tissues. Metabolites are also important in communication between cells both within a tissue and systemically throughout the body. At this conference we will discuss the role of metabolism in controlling cell fate and function in multiple contexts including cancer, tissue regeneration, immune responses and aging.

For those interested, this meeting takes place just before the Cell Death, Cell Stress and Metabolism conferencetaking place from 27 - 30 May 2019 at the same venue.

Target Audience

We anticipate representation from researchers interested in connecting metabolism to cancer, inflammatory diseases, stem cells and aging in both academia and the biotech/pharma industries. Interested researchers need to be on top of these interconnected fields and will want to 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.

Educational Need

Despite more than a century of research in the structure and organization of metabolic pathways, modern approaches in metabolic analysis have been relatively slow to disseminate throughout the biomedical research community. There are two reasons for this bottleneck: 1) the huge amount of pre-existing literature on metabolism dissuades many researchers from entering the field; and 2) the level of expertise required to perform cutting-edge metabolic research is deemed to be too high for non-specialists. This conference will highlight specific areas of metabolism for which clear evidence of influence over cell fate decisions and disease mechanisms now exists, with the goal of emphasizing the most important areas of metabolism for audience members with relatively little background in the field. We will also choose speakers with the ability to clearly communicate a broad range of experimental approaches to help interested investigators develop strategies to implement these techniques in their own laboratories. We believe that the size and format of Fusion conferences will stimulate extensive crosstalk among experts and non-experts in this complex but rapidly accelerating field.

Location

Originally a bustling mining town known as the ‘Las Peñas’ in the 19th century, Puerto Vallarta is framed by the stunning mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental of Jalisco and the immense Mexican Pacific. This fascinating destination with red roofs, golden sunsets, cobbled streets and beautiful beaches possesses everything that makes for an incredible place to visit.

Puerto Vallarta’s art offering is amazing, from crafts found in the flea market to the fleeting creations made by artists with the sand on the beach. Its art galleries, boardwalk, calm Banderas Bay waters - loved by scuba diving enthusiasts and bustling nightlife bare some of the contrasts that Vallarta holds.

There are many activities you can enjoy during your fee time such as visiting the El Salado estuary, going on horseback up the Quimixto waterfall or taking a tour of Banderas Bay. You may also like to explore the Jardín Botánico de Vallarta where you will find orchids, bromeliads, agaves, wild palms and fern grottos along the paths of this gorgeous nature park.

Group Activities

Snorkel Trip – Sunday 26th May 2019

We have arranged an exciting group activity for the Metabolism participants (accompanying guests welcome). Please find the details, timings and price for the activity below. Please note you are required to sign up by Thursday 18th April 2019 and unfortunately, we cannot accept sign ups after this date nor onsite. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

We have hired a private sail boat for the exclusive use of the Metabolism participants and accompanying guests to enjoy swimming and snorkelling at the wonderous Los Arcos National Marine Park Reserve.

Transportation will be provided from the hotel to the Marina where you will board the boat. You will sail for approximately one hour along the beautiful Banderas Bay to the Los Arcos site. This protected marine preserve has several small islands offering reefs, tunnels, caves, and arches teeming with marine life. You will have an opportunity to snorkel, paddle board or kayak, exploring the water and its amazing array of marine life. Be prepared to see schools of angel fish, puffer fish, cornet fish and parrot fish that feed in the shallow reefs of Los Arcos. Don’t forget to keep your eyes open for octopus, lobster and small spotted eagle rays, which are seen frequently year-round.

The final cost will be dependent upon final numbers; therefore, we can only provide a guide at this stage. The cost will range from US$98 - $US144 per person. Payment will be required in advance of the trip and reservation and payment information will follow once we have confirmed numbers.

Tour Includes:
Snorkel equipment
Life jackets
Roundtrip Transportation
3 kayaks
2 paddle boards
Snorkel & inflatables
Bottled water & ice
Soft drinks & snacks (Fish ceviche, guacamole & chips)
Tax & Gratuities
