NIDDK Workshop Registration Deadline: KUH Summer Undergraduate Research Conference

This meeting is the culminating experience for the undergraduate participants sponsored by the Division of Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases Summer Research Program. The conference will bring all of the students together to share their research accomplishments, network with peers and distinguished faculty, and receive timely career development advice. This added exposure to professional and scientific opportunities in renal, urologic, and hematologic diseases will entice undergraduates to continue their medical or graduate careers in areas within the research mission of the Division.

Location:  Nashville, TN, USA

NIDDK Workshop Registration Deadline: Precision Medicine in Pancreatic Disease: Knowledge Gaps and Research Opportunities

The purpose of this workshop is to understand the current status of methods and applications of Precision Medicine as they apply to the diagnosis and management of pancreatic disease, and to explore how to translate precision medicine findings to create strategies for personalized approaches for the prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment options for patients with benign and malignant pancreatic disease. The knowledge gaps, barriers and priorities for conducting basic and clinical studies to advance the field will be identified.

Location:  Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Golden Research Seminar: Molecular and Cellular Biology of Lipids (GRS) - Lipid Remodeling: From Molecular Mechanisms to Biological Functions

The Gordon Research Seminar on Molecular and Cellular Biology of Lipids is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting-edge ideas.This seminar will precede and complement the Gordon Research Conference by stimulating discussion amongst early career lipid researchers on the mechanisms, functions, and regulation of lipid remodeling in normal physiology and pathological conditions. In addition to a scientific program encompassing the most groundbreaking aspects of lipid biology, this seminar will feature a career mentorship panel comprised of both junior investigators and established leaders in the field. The meeting will be conducted in an informal setting and provides a unique opportunity for participants to present unpublished data, exchange ideas and network with like-minded peers.

Location:  Waterville Valley, NH, USA

2019 Gordon Research Conference on: Molecular and Cellular Biology of Lipids Spatiotemporal Regulation of the Lipidome

The 2019 Molecular and Cellular Biology of Lipids Gordon Research Conference and Seminar will provide a forum for scientists to present and discuss their most recent discoveries in lipid biology and metabolism. A focus on the “Spatiotemporal Regulation of the Lipidome” reflects the remarkable complexity and vibrant plasticity of lipid molecules within living systems. Membranes and their lipid components are constantly remodeled at specific locations within cells during normal metabolism and in response to changes in their environment. Many signaling events are mediated by lipid molecules or their metabolites. Organismal energy needs are in constant flux and meeting these needs depends on changes in lipid metabolism at the cellular level and across multiple organ systems. Leading causes of death worldwide, including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, have strong lipid components to their pathologies. Topics emphasized in the nine plenary sessions of this meeting include signal transduction through sphingolipids and phosphoinositides, the dynamic distribution of lipids within and between various membranes or lipid droplets, the impact of lipids on membrane properties, metabolism of fatty acids and sterols at the cellular and organismal level, lipid links to energy metabolism, and the involvement of lipids in disease processes. An outstanding group of invited speakers will anchor the plenary sessions, and 14 of the 36 talks will be chosen from the submitted abstracts to capture the most recent cutting-edge science. Poster sessions each day provide a great setting for discussion and feedback on emerging discoveries for all attendees. We seek to attract scientists from across all subdisciplines of lipid research to provide a synergistic cross-fertilization of ideas and concepts. In addition, the beautiful setting within the White Mountain National Forest and abundant opportunities for outdoor activities provide an enjoyable environment for informal discussions. These interactions should accelerate the pace of groundbreaking discoveries in an area of science with tremendous impact on human health.

NIDDK Workshop on Metabolic Interactions between Folic Acid Excess and Vitamin B12 Deficiency

Main objectives of the workshop are to deliberate on the potential causal mechanisms of excess folate/folic acid and Vit B12 deficiency, as well as potential biological effects of unmetabolized folic acid and to develop consensus on various basic and clinical experimental study designs, intervention strategies and experimental models, for exploring the biochemical mechanisms for these interactions.
