Molecular Medicine & Pathology seminar: Melanoma distorts differentiation pathways to gain an advantage for proliferation and invasion Event as iCalendar

05 March 2013

3:30 - 4:30pm

Venue: Seminar Room 501-505, Building 501, 85 Park Road, Grafton

Melanoma is a very aggressive neoplasm with a high risk of tumour spread early in the disease process. There are parallels between metastasis of melanoma and the precursors of melanocytes during embryogenesis, which are required to migrate to the developing organs from the neural crest. In this talk I will focus on the commonalities and differences between molecular pathways controlling melanocyte development and the molecular pathways involved in proliferation and invasion of melanoma.
