We are pleased to announce the sixth Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Mechanisms of Metabolic Signaling & Disease which will begin on Tuesday evening, May 16, and end on with a banquet on Friday evening and departures on Saturday morning.

Metabolic signaling is at the intersection of many scientific fields, ranging from basic biochemistry and molecular biology to physiology and pathophysiology. Currently, a major challenge for these disparate fields is to define commonalities and differences in the function and regulation of metabolism, and determine the role of metabolic signals in normal physiology as well as disease states. This meeting will fill an important gap by bringing together outstanding researchers with a common goal of understanding the role and regulation of metabolic signals in a diverse array of pathways, cell types, and diseases.

The format of the meeting will include eight oral sessions and two poster sessions. Each oral session will include invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts. For this reason, abstracts from both junior and senior investigators are warmly invited. The abstracts should focus on new and unpublished data. The organizers will select abstracts for oral or poster presentations.

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend, and we have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. All questions pertaining to registration, fees, housing, meals, transportation, visas, abstract submission, financial aid, or any other matters should be directed to Val Pakaluk.
