Metabolism and Angiogenesis

Endothelial cells are very plastic cells, i.e. quiescent in healthy conditions and very actively proliferating / migrating during angiogenic sprouting. For endothelial cells to divide rapidly, they must reprogram their metabolism in a similar fashion as rapidly growing tumor cells. Cancer cell metabolism has recently become one of the hottest fields in biomedical research, and this interest has now infected the angiogenesis field as well. Also, studying endothelial metabolism offers unprecedented opportunities for pro- and anti-angiogenic therapies. It would be of great interest to initiate a cross-talk between the angiogenesis and metabolism field as this would be very cross-fertilizing. We therefore propose to organize a unique meeting teaming up the fields of angiogenesis (vascular biology) and cellular metabolism. We realize that there are several meetings on "Cancer Cell Metabolism", but this meeting would focus on the bridge between "endothelial metabolism & angiogenesis" and unite two disciplines that are poorly connected. Since blood vessels arose in evolution to deliver nutrients and oxygen, it is not surprising that angiogenesis and metabolism are closely linked. Exploring this niche (with the input from other fields such as stem cell metabolism, cancer cell metabolism, etc.) will undoubtedly create novel opportunities for understanding biology in general and designing new therapeutic strategies as well.
