  January 27, 2010  
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
March 16 - 20, 2010

We are pleased to announce the third Cold Spring Harbor conference on PTEN Pathways & Targets, which will begin at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, March 16 and run through lunch on Saturday, March 20, 2010.

The 2010 meeting is intended to bring together a diverse group of scientists studying various molecular, genetic and biochemical approaches to the analysis of the PTEN pathway at the cellular level and in development and diseases including cancer, diabetes, and neurological disorders such as autism. Junior and senior researchers will join to discuss their latest research findings and technical approaches toward the analysis of the PTEN pathway. Particular emphasis will be given to model systems, disease pathogenesis and therapy. While a number of speakers have been invited, please note that the majority of oral presentations will be drawn from openly submitted abstracts.

Session Themes:
* PTEN Regulation
* Upstream of PTEN
* Downstream of PTEN (PDK 1/mTORC2/AKT)
* Intersecting Pathways: AMPK/TSC/mTORC1
* Therapeutic Modulation of the Pathway
* Aging, Metabolism and Cancer
* Disease Models
