2023 Symposium on TGF-β Biology: Signaling Network, Development and Diseases

编辑: Date:2023/11/18

The TGF- b superfamily cytokines play critical roles in a wide spectrum of biological processes in metazoans, including cell-fate determination, early embryonic development and adult tissue homeostasis. Dysregulation of TGF-β signaling and functions contributes to developmental defects and diseases such as cancer and fibrosis. To promote the sharing of the latest advances on TGF-b research and foster idea exchanges among scientists in the field, Zhejiang University will host an exciting symposium on “TGF-b Biology: Signaling Network, Development and Diseases” from December 19th to 21st, 2023 in Hangzhou, China. Prominent and young scientists from institutions across the borders are invited to present exciting findings on TGF-b research and discuss the future development in the TGF-b research field. The symposium offers a great opportunity for participants to interact with these leading scientists, discuss potential collaborations, and participate in shaping the future of research in the field.
