Communication of key physiologic processes both intra and extracellularly occurs as a result of the translation, action, and balance of precise chemical mediators.
The dynamic responses of these mediators to changes in the internal and external environment of the cell results in either a return of these processes to a state of balance (homeostasis) or a loss of control and pathophysiologic progression towards a disease state.
The Inflammatory, as well as many other potentially damaging pathways, may be over-stimulated. With continued disturbance of the cell's vital biochemical processes and order, phenotypic diseases such as aging , cancer, and heart disease often result and irreversible cell damage and eventually cell death occurs. Death of the host organism (The Master Cell) results.
Meet leading researchers in the world of cell signaling, inflammation, and aging who, through advanced genomic sequencing, proteomics, and other 21st century analytical techniques, attempt to understand these disease processes at a molecular level.
The Dr. Herbert Basil Avery Graduate Student Award Lecture will be presented.
