Frontiers of Cell Signaling

Cell signaling, which is extremely complex and yet highly precise, is responsible for the development and function of multicellular organisms. Abnormal cell signaling leads to diseases. In recent years, significant progress has been made in the mechanisms and functions of signal transduction in many areas of biological studies. We invited experts in several highly active areas, Wnt, planar cell polarity and Hippo signaling, as well as several other major areas of signal transduction, to discuss the latest advances and the new challenges. Additional talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. Poster awards will be given to excellent poster presentations by postdoctoral fellows and students. Social and networking opportunities will be included in the meeting program.

Topics:
- Cell signaling
- Wnt signaling
- Planar cell polarity
- Hippo signaling
