2013 Miami Winter Symposium: "The Molecular Basis of Metabolism and Nutrition"
Early registration is now open for the 2013 Miami Winter Symposium, “The Molecular Basis of Metabolism and Nutrition,” scheduled for February 10-13 at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami, 255 Biscayne Boulevard Way.
The symposium is designed for anyone from the basic scientist to the clinical practitioner interested in being at the forefront of nutritional research and knowledge.
The meeting will 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. It will also feature discussions on how transient nutritional exposures during critical developmental periods can induce permanent alterations in the epigenetic regulation that programs metabolic and other biological networks with lifelong consequences. There is growing molecular understanding of the role of processes, such as ER stress response, autophagy, mitochondrial dysfunction, inflammation and hormone signaling, and the interaction of nutrition, epigenetics and human health is a rapidly evolving area of research with many fundamental questions and opportunities to translate basic science discoveries into clinical and public health applications.
The Miller School will waive registration fees for UM faculty, staff and students. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, go to the website and click on U of Miami Delegate Registration.
