Keystone Symposia: Cell Death Signaling in Cancer and the Immune System
28 October - 1 November 2014, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Cellular decisions to live or die are fundamental to development and adult homeostasis, playing roles in a wide variety of physiological and pathological processes. These include cancer, degenerative disease, innate and adaptive immunity, ischemia-reperfusion injury, and infectious disease. As the study of cell death moves beyond the central mechanisms of apoptosis to wider issues of regulation and other forms of cell death, this vibrant area of research widens its influence and importance for human health and disease.
We strongly encourage students and postdoctoral fellows submit an abstract and apply for Scholarship and Underrepresented Trainee Scholarship opportunities. Please visit our website for eligibility and application criteria. Submitting an abstract enables maximum participation in the meeting through presentation in a poster session. Abstracts submitted by the deadline also afford consideration for short talk presentation in either a plenary session or a workshop.
