James Crawford of Genentech, the current holder of the BMCS Lectureship, will speak at Burlington House on 1st September, 2022
Talk title: ‘Hunting for Hippo’
Synopsis: The seminar will focus on our efforts at Genentech to investigate the druggability of the ‘Hippo Pathway’. Key members of this signalling pathway are frequently mutated in a host of cancers—notably methothelioma—but are also relevant to a whole host of therapeutic opportunities in regenerative medicine. James will describe how the elucidation of this pathway led to multiple distinct chemical series, advancing our understanding of the biology of this pathway.
Time: Arrival refreshments from 18:00, talk will begin at 19:00
Venue: The Royal Society of Chemistry
Old library lecture theatre, The Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London, W1J 0BA, United Kingdom
