Institute of Parasitology invites you to the seminar "Regulation of nutrient-sensitive growth by the mTOR pathway".
The seminar will be held at 13:00 on Monday 24 October 2022 in Faculty of Science, building C, lecture room C2.
David is a co-discoverer of mTOR, a key pathway in mammalian cells. He belongs to the most cited scientists (10,000 refs annually) with permanent major contributions to cell and molecular biology.
The visit is organized by the Institute of Parasitology, BC, and the contact person is Julius Lukes. If you would like to meet David after the talk, please write to Pavla Votrubova (email@example.com) for possible scheduling.
Needless to say, this is a Nobel-prize category guy and great we have the oportunity to listen to him.

We probe the basic mechanisms that regulate growth — the process whereby cells and organisms accumulate mass and increase in size. The pathways that control growth are often hindered in human diseases like diabetes and cancer. Our long-term goals are to identify and characterize these mechanisms, and to understand their roles in normal and diseased mammals.
