This exciting, 1-day conference will focus on areas of cellular transduction as well as gene regulation and how their (de)regulation is associated with chronic disease. There will be a strong focus on molecular and transcriptional mechanisms in the cardiovascular system and cancer, discussing how such pathways may be linked to translational applications and therapies in human disease.

Our aims:

  • Encourage plenty of discussions in a relaxed atmosphere.
  • Provide a unique opportunity for students and post-docs to participate and present their own data.
  • Inspire new collaborations and investigations within this ever growing field of research.
