Cell Competition in Development and Disease (B6) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Feb 24 - 28, 2019 at Granlibakken Tahoe, Tahoe City, California, United States of America. Course Description : Cell competition represents a radical departure from the established view that embryonic development is simply a matter of following a preprogrammed set of rules. Instead, it is a highly conserved process that promotes the context-dependent elimination of less fit cells and stimulates growth of more fit cells during growth and homeostasis. Although it has long been known that the basis of competition is the ability of growing cells to monitor fitness of their neighbors, and can be induced via differences in protein production capacity, Myc levels and apico-basal cell polarity, only recently have signaling and effector mechanisms been identified. This conference aims to bring together, for the first time, researchers, from diverse fields who study competitive and cooperative interactions between cells. It will cover recent findings on quality control systems, developing tissues, stem cell populations and tumorigenesis, as well as address important evolutionary aspects of competitive and cooperative behavior in diverse model systems. New technologies have uncovered the prevalence of cell competition in humans, with surprising outcomes and implications for human disease. As the first broad conference of this sort, it will define critical questions shared by the diverse investigators and help shape this exciting and emerging field. Given the wide range of developmental and homeostatic systems that are controlled by cell competition, understanding the mechanisms and consequences of competitive interactions may permit the manipulation of these processes for therapeutic purposes. Session Topics: • Evolution of Competition and Cooperation • Stem Cell Competition • Workshop 1: Technologies for Clonal Tracking • The Germline • Mosaicism and Selection in Normal Tissues • Workshop 2: Oncogenes and Tumor • Suppressors as Drivers in Competition • Cell Selection in Human Disease • Aging and Pre-Malignancy • Workshop 3: Modeling Cell Competition • Competition in Cancer Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
