Keystone Symposia: Integrating Metabolism and Tumor Biology

January 13th to 18th 2015, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Metabolic reprogramming is a hallmark of cancer. Work in recent years has demonstrated extensive interconnectivity between oncogenic signaling pathways and intermediate metabolism. Emerging principles regarding the influence of the tumor microenvironment on cellular metabolism will be discussed in detail, as will new progress toward exploiting metabolic reprogramming to image and treat cancer. The meeting will be partnered with a meeting on PI 3-Kinase Signaling Pathways in Disease, providing a fertile environment for exchange of ideas between these two highly connected fields.

Topics: Tumor metabolism, tumor biology, cancer, cell biology, biochemistry, metabolic diseases

Keystone Symposia: Epigenetics and Cancer

January 25th to 30th 2015, Keystone, CO, United States

Cancer epigenetics is a new and rapidly developing area of research. This Keystone Symposia meeting on Epigenetics and Cancer aims to bring together scientists who are interested in understanding the connections between basic epigenetic pathways and the process of cancer. The meeting highlights the mechanisms by which epigenetic pathways control various biological processes and the connections between epigenetic pathways and cancer, thus providing a forum for the interchange of information and knowhow between the two converging fields of cancer research and epigenetics.

Topics: cancer, epigenetics, drug discovery, molecular biology, genetics, genomics, basic mechanisms
