Autophagy: From Model Systems to Therapeutic Opportunities

Autophagy plays central roles at the intersection of metabolism and intracellular quality control, with broad physiological and medical implications ranging from metabolic imbalance to neurodegeneration, infections, immune disorders, cancer and aging. will cover basic research and translational topics

Autophagy is an intracellular pathway for degradation that allows for the recycling of cellular components inside lysosomes to sustain tissue homeostasis. Countless effort has been devoted to help unravel the molecular mechanisms that regulate this pathway, but many questions remain unresolved. Therefore, this conference program gathers an

Expression of Interest

At this time, we are accepting an Expression of Interest (EOI) by prospective candidates. The Autophagy Inflammation and Metabolism Center (AIM) is planning to conduct periodic searches for competitive mentored PI (mPI) positions to be supported by the AIM P20 NIH award.

Metabolism

For COVID-19 and all other infectious diseases, metabolic processes are intimately connected to the mechanisms of disease pathogenesis and the resulting pathology and pathophysiology, as well as the host defence response to the infection. This article discusses why preexisting metabolic...
