Integrating Metabolism and Immunity (E4) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and would be held during May 29 - Jun 02, 2017at Royal Dublin Society, Dublin, Leinster, Ireland.

The target audience for this medical event for this medical event are basically for leading investigators working on metabolism (organismal, cellular, and microbial metabolism) and immunobiology.

The coordination of metabolic programs with immune cell fate is a fundamental event in immunity. Recent studies have revealed the fundamental importance of metabolic reprogramming, including dynamic regulation of aerobic glycolysis (the Warburg effect), lipid synthesis and degradation, and mitochondrial activity, in immune cell activation and differentiation and the outcome of immune responses. This process depends upon the interplay between the metabolic machinery and immune signaling and transcriptional pathways, and is further shaped by the availability of metabolic substrates and nutrients within the cells and in the microenvironment, including those produced by microbiota.

The critical link between metabolism and immunity is indicated by findings that aberrant immune cell metabolism not only affects inflammatory responses and adaptive immunity, but also contributes to metabolic disorders. The latest discoveries will be discussed in the context of basic biology and how it can be exploited to design new therapeutics targeting inflammatory and metabolic disorders.
