Decisions, decisions:  Regulation of apoptotic and necroptotic
cell death
in skin cancer

Dr Martin Leverkus

Section for Molecular Dermatology, Department of Dermatology and
Allergology, Medical Faculty Mannheim, University of Heidelberg, Germany.

Dear Colleagues,

The Centre for Systems Medicine is pleased to announce another speaker of our seminar series.

Dr Leverkus’s research
is focussed on studying regulation of cell death in the skin under
physiological and pathophysiological conditions, in particular in skin cancer
cells. Specifically, his research is focussed on signalling platforms that
regulate decision processes in cell death research (Feoktistova et al, Mol CELL
2011; Panayotova-Dimitrova et al, CELL Reports 2013) as well as the impact of
small molecule inhibitors of cell death pathways (Geserick et al, Cell Death
& Disease 2014).

The talk will be held in the Houston
Lecture Theatre at 2.00pm 5th
December 2014.

You are all very welcome to attend.

Regards, Markus Rehm
