NAD + Metabolism & Signaling 2017

Conference Summary

NAD and its metabolites are important regulators of cancer, metabolic disease, autoimmunity, and aging. They play important roles in energy metabolism, function as signaling molecules, and as protein modifications such as ADP-ribosylation.  This diversity of function demonstrates the biological importance of NAD and the interconnectivity between cellular metabolism, physiology, and cellular signaling.  Recently, significant progress has been made in our understanding of NAD that highlight its broad relevance to human health and disease.  This SRC brings together all of the leading experts in NAD biology to one venue with the goal of advancing our understanding of the molecule.  Experts come from several NAD relevant fields that include Poly-(ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARPs), Sirtuins, NAD dependent signaling networks, calcium signaling, NAD biosynthesis and the chemical biology of NAD.

Over 30 scientific leaders from institutions worldwide will present their latest data.  In addition, a large number of oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts.  Selected talks, poster presentations, and recreational activities will provide students and postdoctoral fellows opportunities to exchange ideas and interact with senior colleagues.  For the first time, this meeting will be held in the exciting city of New Orleans, an ideal setting to discuss science.
