Project 5 - Brenner
"Approaches to Inhibit Carbon Tetrachloride Induced Liver Fibrosis"
Speakers: Dr. Michael Karin, Project Leader
Presenting the research under the Research Projects:
Control of Toxin and Obesity Induced Liver Fibrosis by B Cells
Seminar Title: “Immune control of liver tumorigenesis – basic concepts and implications for treatment"
The UCSD Superfund Research Center holds a monthly Seminar Series in which participating laboratories, including Principal Investigators, postdoctoral trainees, and students report on their research plans and progress. The scientific presentations are followed by free discussions. These seminars play an essential role in disseminating data between the laboratories, as well as providing an opportunity for all members of the program to interact on a regular basis.
The seminars are mandatory for supported students of our Training Core and postdoctoral fellows that are supported by the research projects. All the Principal Investigators of our Center are encouraged to attend and there is always at least one representative from each Project and Core. Many collaborative activities, especially those between biomedical and non-biomedical projects, have resulted from these meetings.
