We are pleased to announce the Cold Spring Harbor Asia conference on Liver and Metabolic, Disease and Cancer 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 May 21, and will conclude after lunch on Friday May 25, 2012.

The emphasis of this conference will be on integration of liver metabolism, diseases and cancer. Metabolic diseases have reached epidemic levels around the globe, becoming the disease in the 21st century, and liver is the most important metabolic organ. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common visceral malignant diseases and is the third leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Unfortunately, there has been little cross-talk between researchers in the fields of metabolism and liver cancer. This conference is specifically designed to bring together scientists in the relevant fields, to meet the challenge and find solutions.

This conference is similar in design to the famous Cold Spring Harbor meetings series, a program now in its 76th year. 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.

Major Topics:
1. Liver metabolism in health and diseases
2. Liver stem cells and liver cancer stem cells
3. Liver development and organogenesis
4. Bile acid cycling and hepatic lipid metabolism
5. Liver injury and regeneration
6. Liver fibrosis and cirrhosis
7. Liver, inflammation and cancer
8. Liver cancer, clinic and translational medicine

We encourage abstracts to contain new and unpublished materials. The abstracts must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers. Status (fellow's talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

Fellowship:
We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. A certain number of presentations by graduate students and postdocs in this conference will be selected as fellowship (USD $200-$500) awards.

We look forward to seeing you at Suzhou in May.
