ASBMB journal events at #DiscoverBMB
The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology’s three journals — the Journal of Biological Chemistry, the Journal of Lipid Research and Molecular & Cellular Proteomics — are a big part of the society, so naturally they will be center stage at Discover BMB 2024, the ASBMB’s annual meeting, March 23-26, in San Antonio. Here are short summaries of the activities the journals’ editors have planned.
Plenary session: Metabolism and disease
Chair: Alex Toker, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical Schooly
The mechanisms of metabolism feature prominently in health and disease. Lydia Finley of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center will give a lecture during this plenary session examining emerging trends and insights into the metabolic pathways that make or break a cell’s success. Finley's lab researches how changes in metabolite availability shape the chromatin landscape to influence gene expression programs that control cell survival, growth and differentiation.
Journal of Biological Chemistry symposium
Chair: Philip A. Cole, Harvard University
Since 1905, the JBC has stood as a leading outlet for scientists across disciplines to share mechanistic insights on the molecular and cellular basis of biological processes. Join JBC editors for a special symposium featuring the hottest topics at the forefront of the field today at this symposium chaired by JBC Associate Editor Phil Cole of Harvard University.
- Henrik G. Dohlman, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
- Brian D. Strahl, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
- Kirill Martemyanov, The Scripps Research Institute
The power and diversity of proteomics: A symposium by Molecular & Cellular Proteomics
Chair: Al Burlingame, University of California, San Francisco
Join us for a special symposium organized by MCP Editor-in-Chief Al Burlingame of the University of California, San Francisco, on current issues in the development and applications of proteomics in basic and translational research. Explore cutting-edge techniques being used to profile bacterial proteomes, map excitable domains in neurons, understand antigen presentation and disentangle complex cell hierarchies.
- Miriam Abele, Technical University of Munich
- Matthew Rasband, Baylor College of Medicine
- Jennifer G. Abelin, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
- Erwin Schoof, Technical University of Denmark
Lipidomics: A symposium by the Journal of Lipid Research
Chair: Xianlin Han
JLR Associate Editor Xianlin Han of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio will chair a symposium on lipidomics as a bridge to biological and medical research. Hear from five leading experts at the forefront of genomics, proteomics and lipidomics as they relate lipid metabolism and function to insights in cardiometabolic diseases, Alzheimer’s and more.
