FASEB Science Research Conference: Nad+ Metabolism and Signaling

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

Bethesda, MD - Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is more and more acknowledged as one of the central small molecules that connects cellular metabolism with signaling mechanisms, biological regulation and human disease. The 2015 Conference on NAD Metabolism and Signaling is an outstanding scientific conference covering the diverse roles of NAD and its derivatives in metabolism and cellular signaling. Six sessions are devoted to NAD-dependent enzymes and their roles in metabolism and physiology, in regulating chromatin and transcription, in genome integrity, and in cancer and other diseases. Signaling mechanisms involving NAD-derived second messengers as well as poly- and mono-ADP-ribosylation combined with chemical biology of NAD will complete the program.

A main aspect of the 2015 FASEB Science Research NAD-conference will be to foster exchange of information and technology between researchers working on the biochemical, molecular, genetic and cell biological aspects of NAD and related molecules. Moreover, the 2015 FASEB NAD-conference will provide a unique venue for those researchers worldwide who are interested in the basic and translational aspects of NAD metabolism and signaling.

FASEB has announced a total of 34 Science Research Conferences (SRC) in 2015. Registration opens January 20, 2015. For more information about an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2015 SRCs, please visit http://www.faseb.org/SRC.

Since 1982, FASEB SRC has offered a continuing series of inter-disciplinary exchanges that are recognized as a valuable complement to the highly successful society meetings. Divided into small groups, scientists from around the world meet intimately and without distractions to explore new approaches to those research areas undergoing rapid scientific changes. In efforts to expand the SRC series, potential organizers are encouraged to contact SRC staff at SRC@faseb.org. Proposal guidelines can be found at http://www.faseb.org/SRC.

FASEB is composed of 27 societies with more than 120,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. Our mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
