Bethesda, MD The 2014 FASEB Science Research Conference on focuses on recent advances in our understanding of the KLFs, an important family of transcriptional regulators, currently numbering 17, and will also include talks on the closely related Sp transcription factor family. Held twice previously, this FASEB Conference is the only international conference devoted specifically to the KLFs. The major themes of the conference will be the function of the KLFs in stem cells and development, vascular biology, epigenetic regulation, metabolic control and disease, differentiation, inflammation, tumor biology, and cell signaling.
This FASEB Conference will bring together basic scientists and physician-scientists for presentations, discussion, and collaboration in order to broaden our understanding of the biology of the KLFs in fundamental cellular processes and in the pathogenesis of a number of diseases. In addition, through this FASEB Conference, investigators will define new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for diseases involving the KLFs. The cross-disciplinary nature of this conference will bring together investigators with divergent interests and will establish new interactions and collaborations.
Additionally, this FASEB Conference features specialized programs and seminars targeted to trainees and junior investigators. Conference attendees are expected to include cardiologists, developmental biologists, gastroenterologists, geneticists, immunologists, oncologists, stem cell biologists, and structural biologists.
