The conference will:

• Define a deeper understanding of how hypoxia signaling pathways interact with systems responding to cellular stresses including metabolic and redox signals, and seek to apply this knowledge to the understanding of physiological processes of direct relevance to medicine;

• Cover new areas in which hypoxia signaling pathways have been shown to operate, including cellular differentiation and stem cell biology, inflammation and immune regulation;

• Bring together research leaders working on hypoxia biology, including biochemists, cell biologists, geneticists and physiologists, for a truly integrative biology of oxygen homeostasis both across levels of biological hierarchy and across different taxa.

Session Topics:

• Hypoxia Signaling • Hypoxia Signaling in Inflammation and Immunity • Genetic Adaption to Hypoxia • Oxygen and Nutrient Signaling in Model Organisms • Signaling of Hypoxia in Health and Disease • Metabolic Regulation and Hypoxia • Cell Differentiation and Stem Cell Biology • New Horizons for Hypoxia Signaling plus workshops on late-breaking topics
