Diabetes & Metabolism at ENDO 2020

Meeting-Within-a-Meeting

Our popular Basic Science Pathways are back and have been enhanced to ensure your meeting experience focuses in on the topic area you need. These special “meeting within a meeting” tracks integrate focused discussions, poster sessions, and networking opportunities providing you with an ideal way to surround yourself with the latest research. Here are some of the Sessions already scheduled for the Diabetes & Metabolism Pathway.

Each track will offer electronic poster previews to help facilitate the viewing of the top scoring abstracts within each topic and receptions to be held at the end of each program. View session and reception information below, Oral Abstract and Poster Sessions information will be available closer to the meeting.

(S) Liver Nuclear Receptors in Metabolic Homeostasis (4:15 PM – 5:45 PM)

The central role of the liver as the metabolic powerhouse of the body is well established. The talks in this session will illustrate how environmental switches act via nuclear receptors in the liver to enact metabolic programs and how this process is subverted in disease.

(E) Meet the Scientist—Bench to Bedside: Bringing Drugs from the Lab to the Patient (8:00 AM – 8:45 AM)
Daniel J. Drucker, MD—Mt Sinai Hospital

The goal of this session is to provide an opportunity to ask questions about the process of going from a basic science observation to commercialization. The participants will sign up ahead of time and have an opportunity to presubmit questions as well as during the session. During the session, questions can be submitted through the app or on cards to a moderator. The session will start with a 20 minute presentation focused on process rather than information transfer, followed by structured questions.

(S) Why Are ANGPTLs Important For Lipoprotein Pathophysiology and Atherosclerosis? (9:15 AM – 10:45 AM)

Explore the central role of ANGPTL factors in lipoprotein and glucose metabolism in atherosclerosis.


(S) The Failing Beta Cell in Type 2 Diabetes (4:00 PM – 5:30 PM)

Describe about exciting new results that provide key insight into difficult problems in beta cell biology, specifically in the setting of Type 2 diabetes.


(R) Networking Reception: Diabetes & Metabolism (5:30 PM–7:00 PM)

Network with your colleagues and leaders in the field.

(S) Transcriptional Programming of Adipocyte Biology (9:15 AM – 10:45 AM)

Transcriptional programming of adipocyte biology and function Establishing and maintaining adipocyte lineage requires complex transcriptional and epigenetic networks. This session will cover recent advances in our understanding of how adipose tissue epigenetic landscape and gene expression programs are shaped by environmental signals and cross-talk with other cell types in homeostasis and disease.


(S) Challenging the Dogma: Targeting Beta-Cells in T1DM Treatment (4:15 PM – 5:45 PM)

This session will discuss the occurrence of residual beta-cells in T1DM and whether there are viable strategies to target these cells in treatment. Turning the thought that beta cells are gone in T1D on its head and asking how that might change treatment approaches

(S) Understanding the Cellular Diversity of Adipocytes One by One (8:00 AM – 9:30 AM)

It is now well appreciated that anatomically distinct adipose depots represent “mini-organs,” with distinct developmental origins and molecular properties. Employment of single-cell RNA sequencing technologies and advanced techniques in cell lineage-tracing have unveiled intra-depot cellular heterogeneity. This session will highlight recent single-cell sequencing studies that indicate that multiple types of brown and white adipocytes may exist within individual fat depots of humans and rodents Adipose tissue heterogeneity, rather than adipose tissue mass per se, may be a critical determinant of metabolic health in adulthood. As you hear from our speakers, we hope you will ask yourself how this may affect your own research and what questions are left unanswered.
