Keystone Symposia: Lipidomics and Bioactive Lipids in Metabolism and Disease
26 Feb 2017 - 02 Mar 2017
Tahoe City, California, United States
The ability to analyze large numbers of lipids from different categories (e.g., fatty acyls, glycerolipids, sphingolipids and sterols) has greatly advanced our understanding of their biochemical functions and roles in disease, but has also created challenges of scale. This Keystone Symposia meeting will cover areas of lipid research that have been particularly impacted by these technologies. It will specifically address the challenge of managing the large data sets generated by lipidomic technologies and conceptually studying them given how interconnected and cross-regulated lipid metabolic pathways are. Bringing together an outstanding group of scientists with expertise in the lipid categories as well as in lipidomic approaches, it will summarize recent findings for the major lipid categories from state-of-the-art technologies and lay the foundation for a broader understanding of new methods and the technical capabilities and limitations of these methods, as well as where better approaches are needed.

Synthetic Biology for Natural Products Conference
05 Mar 2017 - 08 Mar 2017
Genome sequencing has revealed an enormous biosynthetic capacity for microbial natural products, only a small fraction of which are represented in fermentation-based screens. Synthetic biology tools are being developed to translate the encoded diversity of microbial biosynthetic pathways into novel compounds and natural products. The Synthetic Biology of Natural Products conference will blend these disciplines with the goal of generating new platforms, tools and technologies to capture, manipulate and engineer natural product genes and pathways. Converting this vast untapped (meta)genomic diversity into novel chemical leads for biomedical and agricultural applications will require breakthroughs in design, scale and biologics that currently limit the field.

ECI — Separations Technology IX: New Frontiers in Media, Techniques, and Technologies
05 Mar 2017 - 10 Mar 2017
This conference series began in 1985 and the overall goal remains the same: To bring together researchers working in the frontier areas of a variety of separation technologies. We hope to attract researchers working in adsorption, absorption, bioseparations, chromatography, crystallization, distillation, membranes, novel technologies, etc. The focus will be on new separation media, new separation techniques and new technologies breaking out. These aspects are key to the challenges appearing in carbon capture and sequestration, desalination, and increasing application needs in bioseparations among others. The issues of sustainability, energy consumption and process intensification will be ever present in all of our deliberations.

Keystone Symposia - Pattern Recognition Signaling: From Innate Immunity to Inflammatory Disease
19 Mar 2017 - 23 Mar 2017
Understanding of the signaling mechanisms by which pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) sense microbial infections and cellular stress engage innate immune responses is moving at an unprecedented rate. Developments in the past few years shed new light on how NOD-like receptors and inflammasomes are activated to promote cytokine production and cell death responses in the context of autoimmunity and microbial infection. Other findings clarified how extracellular and intracellular receptors of the Toll-like receptor, PYHIN/IFI, and helicase families respond to infections. In addition, intricate communication between PRRs and microbial commensals has emerged as a critical mechanism controlling immunity, and several fine-tuning mechanisms modulating PRR-induced immune responses have been discovered. Finally, a wealth of clinical information supporting the key roles of PRRs not only in host-microbe interactions, but also chronic autoinflammatory and autoimmune diseases in patients has emerged. This has spurred important translational medicine efforts to bring new therapies and diagnostics to the clinic. This conference unites an international group of academic and industry immunologists and microbiologists who study basic mechanisms of PRR signaling and their interaction with microbes in inflammatory disease models with clinicians and geneticists addressing the etiology of autoinflammatory and autoimmune diseases in patients. Gathering experts from these disparate research communities offers a unique opportunity to discuss new concepts of innate immune signaling and formulate novel approaches for modulating pathological mechanisms in human inflammatory diseases.

Keystone Symposia - Immune Regulation in Autoimmunity and Cancer
26 Mar 2017 - 30 Mar 2017
Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
While the importance of adoptive and innate immunity has been clear in the pathogenesis of human autoimmune disease resulting in a multitude of immune-based therapeutic approaches, the realization is now apparent that understanding immune evasion by cancer is central in developing curative treatments. This meeting will explore and contrast the underlying immune mechanisms resulting in autoimmunity and tumor evasion. The meeting is innovative in bringing together basic immunologists investigating mechanisms of tolerance with scientists exploring immune mechanisms of autoimmunity and cancer in both patients and experimental models. Thus, this Keystone Symposia meeting will cover the pathways in immunity and tolerance that lead to loss of immunological control, dysregulated immune responses and chronic inflammatory disease or tumor evasion. Presentations will include consideration of preclinical and clinical aspects of a diverse number of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and cancer. Conference participants engaged in preclinical, translational and clinical research will hopefully engage in continuing conversations and collaborations which, over the long-term, will provide greater insights into the human immune response and allow us to reassess and further explore pathways that are driving autoimmune disease yet in opposition, lead to tumor evasion. Understanding checkpoints in autoimmunity and immune cell tolerance is important for delivering therapies to patients with autoimmune disease and cancer, and this meeting will provide a platform for the cross-pollination of clinical experience and experimental research. Attendees will have learned about the impact of targeted immune-based therapeutics on clinical outcome and, consequently, be able to widen their research scope accordingly.

Keystone Symposia - Injury, Inflammation and Fibrosis
26 Mar 2017 - 30 Mar 2017
Snowbird, Utah, United States
Fibrosis is a common response of many organs to chronic injury and inflammation. This leads to destruction of organ architecture with loss of function. Until recently, there have been no therapies to slow the progression of fibrosis and to maintain normal organ function. Recent advances have provided new insights into the pathogenesis of fibrosis, new drug targets, and new drugs in clinical studies. This conference will bring together basic biologists and translational and clinical researchers to discuss core mechanisms underlying inflammation and fibrosis, to compare and contrast fibrotic diseases, preclinical models, the potential for regeneration and regression of fibrosis, and potential therapies. The interaction between the host genetics, the environment and the microbiome in the pathogenesis of fibrotic diseases will be addressed. Also, non-invasive methods to assess fibrosis including advanced imaging and intermediate biomarkers will be discussed. This conference will be a unique opportunity for investigators who are focused on organ-specific diseases – i.e., medical subspecialists – to participate in cross-disciplinary, multi-organ discussions in order to gain new insights into their research.

Towards ecologically-realistic genetic mosquito population control strategies for disease elimination
03 Apr 2017 - 04 Apr 2017
Newport Pagnell, United Kingdom
Traditional chemical approaches to mosquito control are fast becoming less effective and acceptable. Worryingly, the implementation of effective novel genetic mosquito control strategies requires knowledge in mosquito behaviour, ecology and genetics that is currently very fragmentary. This extraordinary meeting of leading researchers in these fields will delineate strategic integrative research avenues addressing critical bottlenecks in implementing future vector control programmes. This is a residential conference, which allows for increased discussion and networking.
