Prof. Arun Sreekumar, Charles C Bell Jr. Endowed Professor, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas and Visiting Faculty, Dept. of Biosciences, SSSIHL, an expert on Cancer Biology delivered a keynote lecture on Re-wired Metabolism Drives Breast Cancer at SSSIHL on 22 Jan 2020.
The talk focused on how breast cancer modifies its metabolism to escape host immune response and become aggressive (metastatic). The mechanism underpinnings that drive this immune escape was determined. The potential translation of these findings to develop treatment strategies for patients was discussed.
