Tuberculosis: Mechanisms, Pathogenesis and Treatment (A3) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Jan 17 - 21, 2019 at Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Course Description : The tuberculosis (TB) research and development landscape has seen many exciting breakthroughs over the past two decades. New diagnostics have emerged; innovative research has significantly reduced biological uncertainties; two novel drugs were launched; and public-private partnerships are dedicating massive efforts to dramatically shorten TB therapy, tackle resistant disease and discover new vaccines. Despite these achievements, TB remains the leading infectious disease cause of death globally. Meanwhile, shifts in funding priorities and a false sense of success could threaten the current focus and momentum, which would have catastrophic consequences. The broad themes covered in the main conference program and the three workshops will achieve the following aims: 1) To re-ignite collaborative and multidisciplinary research by bringing together experts in basic science, translational research, and drug discovery and development; 2) To bring together young brilliant minds and established investigators to encourage new discussions and the exchange of innovative ideas for strategies moving forward; and 3) To foster cross-fertilization at the interface between research and development, all aspects of which are critical if we are to tackle the TB pandemic and achieve the next innovation leap. Plenary Session Topics: • Pathogenic Strategies of Mycobacteria • Workshop 1: Pediatric and Extrapulmonary TB • Immune Responses to Mycobacterium Tuberculosis • Host Cell Signaling and Invasion • Workshop 2: TB Drug Targets and MOA • Translation to the Treatment and Diagnosis of Disease • Treatment and Diagnosis of Disease • Molecular Dissection and Targeting of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis • Exploiting Mycobacterial Vulnerabilities • Panel: Careers in Biomedical Research • Host Determinants of Disease Outcomes Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Functional Neurocircuitry of Feeding and Feeding Disorders (J8) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 10 - 14, 2019 at Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Course Description : The Keystone Symposia conference on neuronal control of appetite is traditionally the leading gathering for scientific exchange among those studying the central control of energy homeostasis. The monogenetic syndromes of obesity in mouse and man played a fundamental role in the development of this field, and hence the field has heavily emphasized the control of feeding in models of obesity. However, many disorders of feeding and energy storage, including anorexia nervosa, disease cachexia, pediatric failure to thrive, Prader-Willi disease and progeria, are important, untreated medical conditions. The goal of this conference is to gather world leaders in the neural control of feeding and energy homeostasis, along with leaders in the pathophysiology of feeding and energy homeostasis. There is currently no meeting in the field that brings together these disparate groups of scientists. The conference will broaden the field by covering fundamental advances in the neural circuitry underlying feeding while including entire sessions devoted to anorexia nervosa, disease cachexia and feeding disorders across the lifespan. Additionally, while past Keystone Symposia conferences on the neuronal control of appetite have been heavily focused on the hypothalamic control of homeostatic feeding, this symposium will feature entire sessions devoted to the brainstem and telencephalic control of feeding. Plenary Session Topics: • Neural Circuitry Underlying Feeding Behavior • Workshop 1: Research Opportunities in Eating Disorders • Genetic Disorders of Feeding and Energy Storage • Anorexia Nervosa • Neural Circuits Underlying Nausea, Emesis and Aversive Responses • Telencephalic Control of Feeding Behavior • Feeding Across the Lifespan • Disease Cachexia (Joint) • Workshop 2: Late-Breaking Topics from Abstracts • Drug Discovery for Eating Disorders Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Obesity and Adipose Tissue Biology (J7) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 10 - 14, 2019 at Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Course Description : Obesity is a growing worldwide epidemic, increasing co-morbid conditions, such as diabetes. The joint conferences on “Obesity and Adipose Tissue Biology” and “Functional Neurocircuitry of Feeding and Feeding Disorders” are aimed to foster cross-talk between these research areas. Adipose tissue is an endocrine organ that is both controlled by and sends signals to the brain and other organs. In addition, obesity causes an inflammatory state in the adipose tissue. The recognition that brown/beige adipose tissue is active in adult humans has triggered interest in understanding the physiology and relative importance of these tissues. Exercise and bariatric surgery are known to elicit profound metabolic benefits in type 2 diabetes, although the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. This conference will bring together cell biologists, biochemists, geneticists, physiologists, drug developers, and clinical researchers, thereby facilitating knowledge exchange and interactions leading to elucidation of better treatments for obesity and diabetes. Specifically, it will examine recent advances in our understanding of brown/beige adipose tissue function; obesity-induced adipose inflammation; control of adipose tissue, appetite and energy metabolism; endocrine and paracrine signaling via secreted factors; molecular mechanisms of metabolic signaling; emerging topics, including long noncoding RNA and the gut microbiome; and approaches to drug development and the treatment of obesity and diabetes. Plenary Session Topics: • Drug Discovery/Development in Obesity • Brown/Beige/BRITE Fat Activation and Function • Adipose Tissue and Immune Cells • Adipose Tissue Heterogeneity • Environment and Obesity • How Can We Translate Novel Discoveries into Obesity Treatment? • Disease Cachexia (Joint) • Clinical Obesity Management – Round Table Discussion • Adipose Tissue Microenvironment Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Epigenetics and Human Disease (X5) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Mar 17 - 21, 2019 at Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Course Description : Epigenetics is a major mechanism in human health and disease. Data from a range of diseases (cancer, neurological and immunological disorders) have uncovered altered epigenomes arising from mutations, altered expression and/or copy number alterations of numerous epigenetic factors (histones, DNA and chromatin modifying enzymes, reader proteins, chromatin modulators and noncoding RNAs). Genome-wide analyses have illustrated the relationship between altered epigenetic states (e.g., modified DNA, histones and chromatin packaging) and disease onset and progression. Furthermore, both local and long-range nuclear chromatin architecture are increasingly recognized as major contributors to normal and pathologic epigenetic states. This meeting, held jointly with “3D genome”, will cover the most current knowledge of epigenetic events modulating nuclear function (gene expression regulation, enhancer modulation, domains and structural organization as well as cell division and differentiation), while relating this to normal and disease models. In addition, this meeting will highlight the impact that preclinical and clinical epigenetic therapeutics have on multiple diseases including cancer, immunology, and neurological disorders. An interdisciplinary panel of speakers including both thought leaders in the field as well as young investigators will survey the latest research results and conceptual understanding of fundamental mechanisms of epigenetic signaling, especially as relates to regulation of gene expression programs. Presentations and workshops will highlight the latest technologies and methodologies for studying epigenetic states and 3D chromatin architecture in cells, tissues and organisms. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

3D Genome: Gene Regulation and Disease (X6) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Mar 17 - 21, 2019 at Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Course Description : Transcription of the eukaryotic genome is not only driven by the cis regulatory elements embedded in the linear DNA sequence but also by the way chromosomes fold in the three-dimensional (3D) nuclear space. Growing evidence has pointed to a key role of the 3D genome architecture in gene regulation and human disease. However, the details of dynamic chromatin organization in different cell types remain opaque. Additionally, how chromatin organization shapes the gene regulatory program and influences disease pathogenesis has not been fully elucidated. The major objective of this conference is to accelerate the study of 3D genome organization particularly with regard to gene regulation and human disease. The meeting program will highlight recent technological advances, such as omics based and imaging based technologies. The meeting will also discuss emerging concepts of chromatin organization and its role in cancer and other human diseases. Finally, the conference program will provide workshops and tutorials on the latest computational tools and data resources for 3D genome analysis. Because epigenetic processes such as chromatin remodeling and DNA methylation are intimately linked to the 3D genome architecture, this conference is jointly held together with the Keystone symposium on “Epigenetics and Human disease”, further enhancing the goal to stimulate cross disciplinary interactions among researchers from genomics, epigenomics, computational biology, cell biology and molecular biology fields. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
