Abstract

The objective of this symposium at the First International Congress of Respiratory Biology (ICRB) was to
enhance communication between comparative biologists and cancer researchers working on O2 sensing via the HIF
pathway. Representatives from both camps came together on August 13–16, 2006, in Bonn, Germany, to discuss
molecular adaptations that occur after cells have been challenged by a reduced (hypoxia) or completely absent (anoxia)
supply of oxygen. This brief ‘‘critters-to-cancer’’ survey discusses current projects and new directions aimed at improving
understanding of hypoxic signaling and developing therapeutic interventions.
