Rising Stars of Cancer Metabolism and Signaling

Friday, April 23, 2021, 12:15 PM - 5:55 PM EDT

Webinar

Presented By

Cancer Discussion Group

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

The field of cancer metabolism has come a long way from its origins in Otto Warburg’s hypothesis of the 1920’s. Over the last few decades researchers have uncovered complex metabolite-signaling networks in cancer, which support tumor progression by inducing cell growth, influencing stress responses, restructuring the tumor microenvironment, aiding immune evasion, and promoting metastasis. Many of these oncogenic metabolic changes are unique to tumors, and therefore provide promising therapeutic targets. This symposium, which will take place almost 100 years after the Warburg hypothesis was born, will gather a group of competitively-selected early career researchers to preview the next era of discovery in cancer metabolism.

Science Alliance Webinar: Meet the Editor

Are you interested in being a Journal Editor? Learn how your experience as a PhD and/or Post-doc can lend you to transition into being an Editor at a Journal through our Meet the Editor webinar, that will precede the scientific symposium.
