Miami 2013 Winter Symposium: The Molecular Basis of Metabolism and Nutrition

October 13, 2012

This meeting seeks to integrate existing knowledge on molecular mechanisms of metabolism and metabolic disease with emerging knowledge on the influence of hormones, nutrients and microbial flora that influence systemic metabolism. Transient nutritional exposures during critical developmental periods can induce permanent alterations in epigenetic regulation that program metabolic and other biological networks, with lifelong consequences. There is also growing molecular understanding of the role of processes, such as ER stress response, autophagy, mitochondrial dysfunction, inflammation and hormone signaling. The interaction of nutrition, epigenetics and human health is a rapidly evolving area of research with many fundamental outstanding questions and opportunities to translate basic science discoveries to clinical and public health applications.

The 2013 Miami Winter Symposium will bring together leaders the field to discuss advances in our molecular understanding of obesity, calorie restriction, diabetes, aging and the microbiome as they relate to human nutrition.
