Targeting Cancer Pathways - Tumor Metabolism and Proliferation


Posted by Carolyn P on Jun 24, 2015 8:00:00 AM


Cell Signaling Technology is proud to partner with the Koch Institute at MIT, Science, and Science Signaling to present the Targeting Cancer Pathways webinar series. These webinars will bring together thought leaders from around the world to share current findings and further cancer research community collaboration.

In this webinar we will explore how cancer cells are able to reprogram their metabolic pathways to enable energy production under conditions that are disabling to most normal cells. Of great interest are how tumor-specific metabolic changes promote oncogenic progression and how these changes can be exploited to develop more effective treatment options.

During the webinar, the speakers will:

  • Outline the major metabolic changes seen in tumor tissue
  • Explain how specific metabolic pathways can be targeted during therapeutic interventions
  • Introduce the role of autophagy and cell death in tumor survival and progression

Featured speakers:

Nissim Hay, Ph.D
University of Illinois
Chicago, IL

M. Celeste Simon, Ph.D.
University of Pennsylvania
Philadelphia, PA
