Mitochondrial Biochemistry in Health and Disease (Z1) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from May 17 - 21, 2020 at Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Description Mitochondria are iconic structures in cell biology and have long been appreciated as centerpieces of bioenergetics. However, many features of these organelles remain remarkably obscure, ranging from the basic functions of orphan mitochondrial proteins to the nature of acute regulation of mitochondrial activities and the mechanisms that these organelles use to communicate with the rest of the cell. Our weak grasp on these and other core features of mitochondria underlie our poor ability to address mitochondrial dysfunction therapeutically. This meeting will bring together world leaders in diverse areas of mitochondrial biology to discuss new tools and emerging themes in the field, including the use of multi-layered omics analyses and systems biology to functionalize new disease-related proteins, the use of metabolomics and ribosome profiling methods to elucidate the orchestration of the many distinct events required for mitochondrial biogenesis, and the application of novel imaging and labeling approaches to reveal the nature of mitochondrial dynamics and inter-organellar contacts. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Adaptive ROS Signaling in Physiology and Disease (Z2) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from May 17 - 21, 2020 at Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Description Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are widely considered unwanted by-products of mitochondrial metabolism and physiology, which can damage proteins, lipids and DNA. Accordingly and for many decades, ROS have been linked to the initiation and progression of cancer, diabetes, neurodegeneration, systemic aging, and others. Emerging evidence suggests that ROS at physiological levels may rather act as short-lived signaling molecules linking mitochondrial activity to nuclear transcription and subsequently cellular homeostasis, a process called retrograde response. The meeting will provide a forum for new and paradigm-shifting ideas and an opportunity for new investigators to enter the field. These include ROS-sensitive transcriptional effects in the nucleus, conformational changes following cysteine oxidation within signaling molecules, ROS-mediated host-pathogen interactions, limitations of cancer growth by ROS, ROS-induced autophagy, mitophagy and proteostasis, as well as ROS-mediated effects of forkhead-, NRF2 and sirtuin-signaling. Lastly and with a clinical/epidemiological perspective, the role of ROS in human disease and ROS-inducing compounds based will be addressed. Given the recently established roles of ROS in diverge research areas like aging, cancer biology, immunity, metabolism, mitochondria, and others this meeting would converge highly interdisciplinary scientific interests from both academia and industry in an unprecedented manner.
