Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide and many patients have despite recent developments an unfavorable prognosis which results in an ongoing need for new or combined therapeutic approaches targeting molecular pathways or cellular functions. The transforming growth factor beta (TGFB) pathway is pleiotropically involved in a multitude of processes at the cellular level and is considered as either pro or anti-tumorigenic, depending on the microenvironment and stage of carcinogenesis. The talk will be focused on TGFB signaling as well as spatial biology approaches in lung cancer.

Zoom practicalities:

Note: Please change any username to your name when logging in, so that chair can address you by name if you have questions.

  • Your sound and video will be turned off as default for security reasons, and only host can de-mute individual participants.
  • We will open for questions after the lecture, where you can use the Raise hand function, or type your question in Chat. Host will then de-mute your sound and address you by your name (please log on with your name).
  • If you think you might want to ask questions, please test your microphone beforehand. Make sure your microphone is turned on. (Or ask host to read out your typed question).
  • We advise all to have a Zoom account on your device beforehand (free service), that will save you some minutes when logging on.

Those of us with University of Bergen (UiB) client machines, might already have Zoom. If not, see https://it.uib.no/Jeg_skal_bruke_Zoom_for_f%C3%B8rste_gangFor private machines (not UiB), see https://zoom.us/download#client_4meeting   Otherwise, clicking the logon link provided above will prompt the Zoom app to download, but it saves you time to have done this beforehand.
