Vascular Control of Tumor Progression and Metastasis – Hellmut G. Augustin, DVM, PhD
August 8, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Vascular Control of Tumor Progression and Metastasis
Professor and Director, Joint Research Division Vascular Biology
European Center for Angioscience (ECAS)
Medical Faculty Mannheim
German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) Heidelberg
Seminar Topic: Blood vessels control organ function during health and disease through instructive (angiocrine) signaling mechanisms. They serve as the critical gatekeepers of local and systemic homeostasis and are decisive for lifespan and healthspan. The Augustin lab (www.augustinlab.de) studies angiocrine signaling mechanisms during the life cycle of the vasculature (blood vessel formation, assembly, maturation, quiescence, regression, aging) with a particular focus on tumor-vessel interactions that govern tumor progression and metastasis. Basic discovery research feeds translational research to identify and validate novel therapeutic targets and lay the preclinical proof-of-concept for novel treatment modalities and therapeutic windows, including neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapy.
For those who cannot attend in person, the seminar will also be available via Zoom
