Bethesda, MD The 2014 FASEB Science Research Conference on Nutrient Sensing and Metabolic Signaling focuses on recent advances in the mechanisms by which nutrients and metabolites transduce information to cellular effector functions. Advances in nutritional genomics, epigenetics, metabolomics and the micro biome, in combination with innovations in nutrient signal transduction, are fueling development of new diagnostics, therapeutics, and personalized approaches to combat disease.
Interest in these areas has intensified due to the rising incidence of obesity-related diseases and the desire to develop targeted therapies that address individual metabolic needs. This FASEB Conference brings together physician-scientists and research scientists for presentations, discussions, and potential collaborations to broaden our understanding of fundamental aspects of nutrient modulation of health and disease. The interdisciplinary nature of this conference serves to bridge cell biology with interorgan metabolism and nutrient flux.
The conference is attended by professionals in the fields of nutrition and metabolism, biochemistry and molecular biology, physiology and cell biology, microbiology and immunology, endocrinology and exercise science. This is the only long-standing specialized international conference to focus on the regulation of cellular function and metabolism by nutrients. As such, this conference provides a unique platform to bring together investigators in diverse fields to exchange information and ideas.
