The 2018 CSHL meeting on Nutrient Signaling builds on the prior successful meeting series on the PI3K-mTOR-PTEN network held biennially since 2006. Nutrient signaling encompasses various cell signaling pathways that are regulated by nutrient availability. Cells respond to variations in nutrient concentration by activating signal transduction cascades and networks that modulate important cellular processes including metabolism, proliferation, secretion and autophagy.

The meeting will begin at 7:30 pm on Thursday, October 25 and run through lunch on Sunday, October 28, 2018, and will include six oral sessions plus one poster session; the program will include a mixture of invited speakers and talks selected from submitted abstracts. We anticipate that most of the research presented will be unpublished and new, with plenty of opportunities for feedback and discussion throughout the meeting.

Abstracts should contain interesting and exciting material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made.

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Please apply in writing via email to Val Pakaluk and state your financial needs; preference will be given to those submitting abstracts.
