Event description

Description

Cells are continuously multiplexing information during cell migration, cell division, protein and membrane trafficking, RNA trafficking, signalling, matrix sensing, and genome surveillance. Research groups in the Faculty tend to look at these processes in isolation, but cells are doing all of these tasks at the same time. The hypothesis is that ‘getting this wrong’ is the basis of disease and developmental abnormalities.

In this first in a series of forums to be organised by the Cellular and developmental systems (CDS) research domain, we have pulled together academic cancer clinicians and basic scientists (some who research cancer and some who don’t) to identify new collaborative opportunities.

17 speakers will give flash talks to encourage discussion and identify areas of collaboration that can be followed up after the forum.

We look forward to seeing you.
