Event Scheduled for Mar 29, 2013

Event: BME Seminar: How Cancer & Inflammation are Linked by Tumor Microenvironment & Mechanics, Presented by Dr. Cheng Dong

Location: ROWE 320, Videoconferenced to UCHC-Low Learning Center

Time: 12:00 pm

Details of Event:
Attachment of tumor cells to the endothelium (EC) under flow conditions is critical for the migration of tumor cells out of the vascular system to establish metastases. The interactions between cancer cells and the host immune system are of particular interest to our group. Innate immune system processes can potentially promote tumor progression through inflammation dependent mechanisms. Human neutrophils (PMNs), which comprise 50-70% of circulating leukocytes, are being studied to better understand how the host immune system affects cancer cell adhesion and subsequent migration and metastasis.
