Congress on Steroid Research
|Event Date/Time: Mar 27, 2011||End Date/Time: Mar 29, 2011|
|Registration Date: Mar 26, 2011|
|Abstract Submission Date: Nov 26, 2010|
With the interdisciplinary nature of steroid research, involving aspects of analytics, chemistry, biology, medicine and bioinformatics, our Congress will address present state-of-the-art approaches in the molecular basis of steroid-related common human diseases like metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obesity, inflammation, and cancer. Additionally there will be ample time to enjoy plenary lectures, short oral presentations and interactive poster discussions.
Sessions will cover the following major topics:
â€¢ recent advances in understanding steroid receptor functionality
â€¢ mechanisms of signal transduction
â€¢ pre-receptor metabolism of steroids
â€¢ chemistry of steroid synthesis
â€¢ steroids in disease
â€¢ translational approaches
â€¢ environmental impact on human health
General overviews of a topic will be accompanied by presentations of novel work undertaken at leading laboratories that focus on the interdisciplinary character of steroids research. Emerging trends and new developments will also be addressed in the sessions.
