At EB2011: The role of metabolism in disease
Date:4/7/2011

p>

Metabolic Communication: The second round of talks, to be held from 9:55 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. Monday, will examine the role of communication between cells in age-related diseases as well as obesity and insulin resistance. The three talks will feature researchers from Emory University, the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the University of Southern California Medical School.

Metabolic Signal Transduction: The third platform session in the program will be held from 3:45 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and will focus on how cells communicate their energy needs. Insulin acts like a fuel gauge for cells, signaling when the cell has too much or not enough energy, and works in concert with other chemical signals to maintain healthy cellular function. This session will feature research on three different metabolic signaling systems and their roles in obesity, diabetes and metabolic disease. Scientists from the University of Montreal, Boston University School of Medicine and the cole Polytechnique Fdrale de Lausanne in Switzerland will speak.

Metabolism and Cancer: The final round of talks, to be held from 9:55 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. Wednesday, will feature recent discoveries concerning metabolism and cancer. Metabolic processes are critical to the survival and growth of cancer cells, and exciting new research is investigating the metabolic functions that can contribute to cancer development and potential mechanisms for prevention. This session will include presentations by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, University of Toronto and McGill University.
