Conference Summary

Launched in 1994, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) has evolved from its original focus on nutrient control of gene expression to one that embraces such emergent topics as nutrient sensing and signaling.

This interdisciplinary conference convenes scientists with diverse expertise to advance understanding of the biochemical mechanisms and fundamental principles of nutrients as signaling molecules and as regulators of metabolism. Established investigators from academia and industry and trainees – including graduate students and postdoctoral fellows – are well represented. The overarching goal of this meeting is to understand the role of nutrients as signaling molecules in metabolic control.
