Emerging Themes in Tumor Suppressors: Function and Clinical Implications in the Post-Genomic Era
Organizer(s): Kun-Liang Guan, Eric R. Fearon and Stephen H. FriendDate: January 25 - 30, 2009
Location: Sagebrush Inn & Suites, Taos, NM, USA
This symposium will cover the recent exciting discoveries on tumor suppressors and related areas. The sessions, topics, and speakers have been chosen to reflect the fact that cancers arise from multiple defects in tumor suppressor pathways/networks. The pathways to be discussed at the meeting are among those most commonly altered in cancer cells, and where exciting results have emerged over the past few years and where considerable progress is expected. The talks will offer exciting new results from the speakers’ laboratories and it is expected that common biological themes will emerge in many sessions, such as the pleiotropic effects of tumor suppressor gene defects on multiple different cell phenotypes, and the likely cross-talk between tumor suppressor gene pathways that currently appear to be functionally distinct.
