Metabolic pathways represent the beautifully orchestrated interplay between cellular systems, working in concert to achieve a shared goal, but – despite their power when finely tuned – they can rapidly fall out of sync, giving rise to disease. To better understand the genesis of these diseases and, ultimately, how to reverse or prevent them, researchers are interrogating the integral cell-signaling pathways and assessing their defects. The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to discuss the methods they use for isolating and investigating these multifaceted pathways, and to share the findings of their latest research. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics that are related to their research.
