Event Details

Cancer Metabolism Symposium

May 23, 2013, 10 am - 4 pm

 

Co-sponsored by:

UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center

NIH: West Coast Metabolomics Center

 

Keynote Speakers

Dr. Ronald M. Evans, a Howard Hughes Investigator at the Salk Institute, is an authority on hormones, both their normal activities and their roles in disease. A major achievement in Evans' lab was the discovery of a large family of receptors for the steroid hormones and Vitamins and elucidation of their functions in control of sugar and fat metabolism as well as in diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cancers. Their recent work also illuminates our understanding the intricate link between circadian rhythm and metabolism and suggests new directions for treating metabolic disorders.

His presentation: Nuclear receptors in hunger games: from feast to famine

Dr. Kun-Liang Guan, a Professor of Pharmacology at UCSD, is a world leading investigator in cancer biology and kinase signaling in cell growth regulation. His lab made seminal contributions in the fields of mTOR and Hippo-YAP pathways and cancer metabolism. Their recent work identifies acetylation of metabolic enzymes as a key mode of metabolism regulation and helps elucidate how genetic alterations (e.g. in IDH) promote tumorigenesis through oncometabolites-mediated deregulation of epigenetic.

His presentation: Nutrient signaling in control of cell growth and autophagy
