Keystone Symposia: Metabolism, Transcription and Disease

10th January 2016 - 14th January 2016
Snowbird, Utah, United States


To maintain homeostasis, cells need to coordinate gene expression and metabolic state. There is increasing evidence that misregulation of metabolic flux and gene transcription plays a major role in human diseases, including obesity, diabetes and cancer. The aim of this meeting is to explore how metabolic state influences gene expression programs and, conversely, how intermediary metabolism is controlled by the transcription machinery and chromatin-modulating enzymes. Particular emphasis will be on the connection between gene transcription and metabolism in homeostatic and diseased state. The meeting brings together scientists working on basic aspects of transcription control, epigenetics, metabolic disease and cancer. The meeting is being held in conjunction with "Nuclear Receptors: Full Throttle."
