Proliferating tumor cells have different metabolic requirements than most normal differentiated cells. Cell proliferation requires nutrient uptake not only for their bioenergetic needs but also to support macromolecule synthesis and redox balance. Metabolic pathways that support the bioenergetic and biosynthetic needs as well as redox balance in cancer cells are being elucidated. Furthermore accumulating evidence suggests that metabolism is actively regulated to support cell growth, and that this regulation is coupled with the signal transduction pathways that control cell growth and proliferation. The meeting will cover the metabolic and signaling pathways that are necessary for cancer.  

Major Topics:

1. Organismal Metabolism

2. Metabolic Pathways

3. Signaling

4. Metabolic Stress

5. Cancer Metabolism In Vivo

6. Redox Biology

7. Microenvironment
