The Cold Spring Harbor Asia conference on Nuclear Receptors and Diseases, which will be held at the Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center in Suzhou, China, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai. The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Monday November 4, and will conclude after the lunch on Friday November 8, 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. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.

Many nuclear receptors are key metabolic regulators. While such functions for glucocorticoids and thyroid hormone have been known for decades, those of the receptors for fatty acids, bile acids, and xenobiotics, for example, are still emerging. This conference will focus on these exciting new metabolic functions in very different contexts, including maintenance of normal homeostatic balance, and actions in diseases ranging from diabetes and the metabolic syndrome to cancer.
