mTOR Signaling in Growth and Metabolism: How an Unhealthy Diet Causes Diabetes

Talk

WHEN February 17, 2020
6:30-8pm WHERE NYUAD Campus, Conference Center WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

TOR (Target of Rapamycin) is a highly conserved protein kinase that controls a wide range of metabolic processes. More importantly, TOR is a central controller of cell growth that plays a key role in development and ageing. Dysregulated mTOR (mammalian TOR) is implicated in many disorders including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. The aim of this group's research is to elucidate the mechanisms by which mTOR signaling is regulated and how it, in turn, controls many processes in both health and disease.
