Alzheimer's disease is expected to triple in the U.S. by 2050 and obesity is already epidemic. This eBriefing presents research on the link between overnutrition and cognition which suggests that obesity may play a role in and age-related diseases.
Organizers: Zdenek Berger (Pfizer), Mercedes Beyna (Pfizer), Warren Hirst (Pfizer), and Jennifer Henry (The New York Academy of Sciences)
Autophagy is a route for degradation of aggregated cellular proteins and dysfunctional organelles. This eBriefing reviews molecular mechanisms that lead to impaired autophagy and strategies for modulating autophagy for therapeutic benefit.
Keynote Speakers: George Church (Harvard Medical School), Sean Hill (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne), Allan Jones (Allen Institute for Brain Science), Christof Koch (Allen Institute for Brain Science), and David Van Essen (Washington University in St. Louis)
One of the greatest challenges in neuroscience today is deciphering how the activity of neurons and circuits gives rise to higher order cognition and behavior. Researchers working at the forefront of systems and computational neuroscience discussed work to crack the neural code, describing advances in tools, technologies, imaging, informatics, and computational models for mapping neural networks.
Keynote Speaker: David Miller (University College London)
This eBriefing explores new brain and nerve imaging methods to monitor disease progress and treatment outcomes in patients with multiple sclerosis.
Keynote Speakers: Leon Balents (University of California, Santa Barbara) and Mohammad F. Islam (Carnegie Mellon University)
At the seventh biannual Gotham-Metro Condensed Matter conference faculty, postdocs, and students shared ideas and research on condensed matter with fellow physicists, covering the spectrum from graphene-based transistors and novel chemical sensors to the fundamentals of colloids, metamaterials, and quantum spin liquids.
Organizers: Mandana Arabi (The Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science), Beate Lloyd (PepsiCo), Rosemary E. Riley (Abbott Nutrition Health Institute), and Yasuhiko Toride (Ajinomoto Co., Inc.)
Scientific breakthroughs in biomarkers are changing the field of personalized medicine and diagnosis. In the field of nutrition, biomarkers have applications both for assessment and screening of nutritional status as well as for diagnosis of deficiencies and risk factors.
