19th Joint Meeting of the Signal Transduction Society (STS)

SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION: Receptors, Mediators and Genes

  • Overview

    This year's special focus on “Tumor Biology” will be coordinated by the DGZ Study Group "Signal Transduction" 

    Workshops will be on:

    1. Tumor Biology (incl. “Tumor stem cells and tumor heterogeneity”, “Tumor microenvironment and cell-cell interactions”, “Tumor immunology”)
    2. Immune Cell Signaling
    3. Growth Factors, Cytokines and their Receptors
    4. G proteins and GPCRs (incl. Chemokines and their Receptors)
    5. Differentiation, Stress, Death (incl. Stress responses, Apoptosis, Necro(pto)sis, Autophagy)
    6. Infection and Inflammation

    Each Workshop/Session will start with an introductory keynote presentation of 30 minutes (including discussion) given by invited speakers who significantly contributed to the development of specific areas of signal transduction Research.

    “Poster only” Workshops will be on:

    • Signaling in Non-Mammalian Organisms
    • Systems Biology
    • New Methods
    • Miscellaneous

     

    Online Registration until September 15th!
