Metabolism, Health, and Cancer: The 2020 Dr. Paul Janssen Award Symposium

Wednesday, September 16, 2020, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT

WEBINAR

Presented By

 

Lewis C. Cantley’s discovery of the enzyme phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K) paved the way to a better understanding of cellular metabolism and its role in human diseases. In response to insulin, PI3K signals through lipids to activate a cellular cascade resulting in increased glucose uptake, and subsequent cell growth and division. Dr. Cantley’s work has led to new cancer therapies, as PI3K pathway mutations are among the most common to drive cancer development, and to a better understanding of insulin resistance in diabetes.

For the discovery of PI3K, Dr. Cantley, of Weill Cornell Medical College, will receive the 2020 Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research. This virtual symposium, Metabolism, Health, and Cancer: The 2020 Dr. Paul Janssen Award Symposium, will celebrate his work. Following the award lecture from Dr. Cantley, fellow prominent scientists will discuss several aspects of cellular metabolism and PI3K, and its implications for biology and human disease.
