Terrà un seminario dal titolo:

*/"/**Genes, the origins of cancer and pursuit of new therapies/"/*


/Advances in molecular biology have allowed us to understand the 
structure-function relationship of genes and of proteins and their 
abnormal counterparts in human diseases such as cancer, inflammatory 
disease and neuropathies. We now understand a great deal about the 
genetic changes that underlie the origins of cancer and the subsequent 
milieu of mutations that characterize overt cancer but the translation 
of this knowledge into new therapies has been difficult. This is partly 
because cancer cells exploit many features of normal biology to extend 
longevity and evade drug treatment but also because perfecting drugs for 
intervention requires many layers of interaction between biologists, 
chemists and physicians that present practical difficulties. In our 
laboratory, we have been attempting to circumvent these limitations by 
creating a microcosm for developing new methods for drug target 
identification, through target validation to drug discovery. I will 
discuss some of this work in the context of our aim to employ molecular 
biology for improved treatment options for patients./


Tutti gli interessati sono invitati a partecipare.
