Special Developmental Biology Seminar: David Bilder (University of California, Berkeley) – “Cold-blooded cancer: Tumor-host interactions in the drosophilia model”

April 6, 2023
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Needleman Library (Medical Campus, South Building 3907)

“Cold-blooded cancer: Tumor-host interactions in the drosophilia model”

NOTE day

Hosted by the Department of Developmental Biology

David Bilder, Ph.D. is a professor of Cell and Developmental Biology and Affiliate, Division of Genetics and Development. Research in his laboratory focuses on the biology of epithelia, the fundamental tissue of all animals and the major constituent of human organs. They study the molecules and mechanisms that govern epithelial polarity, cell shape, and tissue morphogenesis, often using forward genetic screens in Drosophila as entry points. They also seek to understand how epithelial organization promotes the proper control of organ growth, a surprising connection uncovered by our analysis of fly tumor suppressor genes that represents a general principle relevant to human cancer.
