"Advances in Metabolic Communication"

The coordination of nutrient sensing and energy metabolism is essential for the maintenance of cellular and organismal homeostasis. To achieve this finely tuned regulation, metabolic information must be communicated among cells, tissues and organs. The goal of this conference is to bring together experts from diverse fields to discuss recent advances in understanding how signaling pathways in one organelle, cell or tissue may influence metabolic functions in other cellular compartments, cells and organs and, ultimately, systemic control of energy homeostasis. The conference will encourage discussion of the physiological processes governing these interactions as well as the role of miscommunication in the development of metabolic diseases and aging.

About Sugar Loaf
Over a million tourists every year visit the world famous Pão de Açúcar (Sugar Loaf Mountain), which has become an iconic symbol of the city of Rio de Janeiro. Rising up from a small peninsula at the entrance of Guanabara Bay, its name is said to refer to its resemblance to the traditional shape of concentrated refined sugar loaf. Above sea level, the tour offers a 360 degree view of the entire city including Botafogo and Copacabana Beaches, Corcovado and downtown Rio.
