Bioenergetics and Metabolic Disease (J4)
Obesity and type 2 diabetes are major drivers of chronic disease and premature
death. A promising strategy to reduce obesity and improve metabolic health is
through promoting energy expenditure via thermogenesis, including obligatory
(accompanies all metabolic processes) and facultative (adaptive) mechanisms.
Obesity and insulin resistance also lead to profound metabolic changes in
various cells/tissues that contribute to tissue dysfunction. This conference
brings together basic and clinical researchers from industry and academia
focused on the study of cellular and organismal energy metabolism in the context
of metabolic disease. A variety of approaches and topics will be featured,
including: basic mechanisms of mitochondrial and cellular energetics; the
emerging role of brown and beige fat in adaptive thermogenesis; central
regulation of energy expenditure; and the effects of exercise on muscle and
whole-body metabolism. In addition to the plenary sessions, the meeting will
feature workshops on emerging research areas and novel therapeutic
opportunities. Overall, the goals of the conference are to: 1) Provide a
cutting-edge understanding of the basic mechanisms that control cellular and
whole-body energetics; 2) Discuss the physiological role of brown fat and other
energy expenditure pathways in humans; 3) Consider novel strategies for
increasing energy expenditure and combating metabolic disease; and 4) Engage
attendees in critical discussions about important areas for future research.
