Targeting Immunometabolism in Autoimmune Diseases and Inflammation

Targeting Immunometabolism in Autoimmune Diseases and Inflammation

Tuesday, October 22, 2019, 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM

The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York

A large unmet medical need persists across the spectrum of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Emerging evidence suggests that immune cell fate is tightly regulated by changes in metabolic programming, including aerobic glycolysis (the Warburg effect), fatty acid synthesis and oxidation, and mitochondrial activity. Modulation of these pathways by cytokines, growth factors, and microbial products, as well as nutrient availability, controls the ability of lymphocytes to proliferate and produce specific immune effector molecules. Consequently, changes in immune cell metabolism can have a major impact on the progression and resolution of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.

This symposium will explore the immunometabolic pathways that govern innate and adaptive immune cell activation, with a view to highlighting core pathways and specific enzymes that are likely therapeutic targets for autoimmune diseases and dysregulated inflammation.
