Nobel Conference “The Cell Cycle and Cell Death in Disease”

2016-06-0812:00Campus Solna

After two successful Nobel Conferences (2001 and 2010), the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet has decided to support the organization of the 3rd Nobel Conference entitled “The Cell Cycle and Cell Death in Disease”. New discoveries concerning regulation of the cell cycle and of programmed cell death/apoptosis represent major advances in biomedical research during the past several decades.

Nobel Forum, Karolinska Institutet, June 8 – 11, 2016.

The importance of dysregulation of these processes in the pathogenesis of major diseases, such as cancer, myocardial infarction/stroke, atherosclerosis, and infectious, inflammatory and neurodegenerative disorders, is becoming increasingly evident. Both processes are also essential for prevention of autoimmunity. Moreover, recent findings suggest that there is a relationship between inappropriate apoptosis and premature ageing. Therefore, the focus of this Nobel Conference is on the importance of dysregulation of cell cycle/cell death programs in the pathogenesis of human disease and on recent attempts to design and use modulators of these programs as therapeutic tools.

A limited number of slots at this conference are still open for participants from Karolinska Institutet. If you wish to participate, please contact Irene Tjernberg by e-mail.

Participants are asked to attend all three days of conference.
