Metabolism, Obesity and Obesity-associated Diseases
Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center
May 20-24, 2013
Organized by:

Cold Spring Harbor Asia (CSHA) is the Asia-Pacific subsidiary of New York based Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL). Inaugurated in 2010, CSHA is dedicated to promote international scientific exchange in the Asia-Pacific Rim by offering scientific conferences and advanced training courses with highest quality. CSHA is pleased to announce the Cold Spring Harbor Asia-Metabolism, Obesity and Obesity-associated Diseases, which will be held at the Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center (CSHA鈥檚 exclusive venue) in Suzhou, China, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai.
The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Monday May 20, and will conclude after the lunch on Friday May 24, 2013.

The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. As a tradition of CSHL, ample social events throughout the conference will be provided in order to facilitating the cross-pollination of scientific ideas.
Major Topics:
A) Adipocytes, lipid droplets and lipolysis
B) Metabolism and neurological disorders
C) lipotoxicity
D) Cholesterol, heart and atherosclerosis
E) Energy homeostasis
F) Insulin signaling and insulin resistance
G) Obesity and inflammation
H) Cancer metabolism
I) Intracellular stress in obesity
