  • Inositol Phospholipid Signaling in Physiology and Disease

    June 26 - 27, 2012
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the New York Academy of Sciences

    Inositol phospholipid (IP) species are membrane-bound signaling molecules that have been implicated in almost all aspects of cellular physiology, including cellular growth, metabolism, proliferation, and survival. Therefore it is not surprising that disruptions within this key signaling pathway have been linked to conditions as diverse as cancer, inflammatory disease, obesity and diabetes. This 2-day conference will bridge the divide between basic and clinical research in different therapeutic areas by convening investigators working on the specificity and interplay of diverse IP-modifying enzymes (e.g. PI3K, PTEN, SHIP1/2 and INPP4A/B) in the context of both normal physiology and disease. Participants will then build on this foundation of knowledge to explore the latest therapeutic approaches for targeting this pathway through emerging methods of pharmaceutical modulation.
