Identification of Novel Molecular Targets in Neuroblastoma

Tuesday, February 15, 2022

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

About the Event

Jianhua Yang’s laboratory is interested in characterizing novel molecular targets in neuroblastoma. In his presentation, he will discuss two projects; in the first, he will define the role of a novel CREB-activating kinase pathway in neuroblastoma growth and development. In the second, he will define the role of a novel cell surface receptor-like molecule in neuroblastoma growth and development.
