Title: Cell Cycle Regulation & Tumorigenesis
(Organized by IMCB in conjunction with the 12th Australian Cell Cycle Workshop)

Cell Cycle Regulation & Tumorigenesis Symposium

Cell division is a fundamental process that determines growth, development, and maintenance of all organisms. The cell cycle integrates a myriad of cellular activities whose execution is coordinated rigorously to maintain chromosome stability and to produce healthy progeny. Any gross departure from this highly coordinated progression through the cell division cycle can lead to genome instability which in turn may result in reduced fitness, uncontrolled proliferation or, in extreme cases, eventual death of the progeny cells. It is thought that changes in cell cycle control can lead to tumorigenesis and cancer. Cyclin-dependent kinases (Cdks) are among the central drivers of the transitions from one cell cycle phase to the next. The activities of Cdks and other major effectors are regulated at different levels including phosphorylation/dephosphorylation, transcription, subcellular localization and protein stability (ubiquitylation). While these regulators constitute the main nodes of cell cycle regulation, their action is embedded within a larger, interlocking regulatory network, details of which are being actively worked out. In this joint IMCB Symposium together with the 12th Australian Cell Cycle Workshop, we bring together a small number of scientists from this region to discuss recent progresses in an interactive atmosphere.

You are invited to join our distinguished speakers from the Singapore, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, and Taiwan for a symposium that will illustrate the power of a multidisciplinary approach to address key issues in cell cycle regulation & tumorigenesis and the potential impacts of this knowledge on human health.

Poster Presenters:
Our poster session will be held during lunch time on both days of the Symposium. All posters have to be put up latest by the morning tea break on Monday 7 September 09. Poster boards and Velcro tapes will be provided along the aisle outside the Theatrette for you to put up the posters. The poster boards dimensions are: 1200mm X 1200mm (1.2mX 1.2m). Please prepare a poster of either A0 (841mm X 1189mm) or A1 (594mm X 841mm) size.
