Molecular and Systems Integration of Genomic and Nongenomic Steroid Hormone Action

Event Information

Meeting Type: Physical
Meeting Website:
Dates: August 9 - 14, 2015
Location: Big Sky, Montana , United States
Intended Audience:
Sponsor: FASEB
Purpose: Scientific
Number of CME Credits Offered: None

Topics: Cardiovascular Endocrinology, Diabetes Mellitus and Glucose Metabolism, Endocrine Disruption, Endocrine Neoplasia and Cancer, Neuroendocrinology


The purpose of the conference is to bring together a diverse group of scientists with expertise ranging from endocrinology, energy metabolism, neuroendocrinology, epigenetics, environmental endocrine disruptors, cardiovascular function, reproduction, immunology, neurobiology and cancer to present exciting new discoveries that uncover fresh insights into system-wide action of nuclear hormone receptors acting at nongenomic and genomic levels. This is the only conference completely devoted to the integration of these two important signaling pathways. The diversity of this conference will foster and stimulate innovative ideas through the establishment of new collaborations or experimental approaches generated by exposure to the many model systems and provocative results of the speakers.
