On Friday, 3rd July 2020, MDPI and the Journal Cells organized the webinar with the title “Disease and the Hippo Pathway: Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms.” The webinar provided fundamental molecular insights into human disease.
Associate Prof. Dr. Carsten Hansen, Centre for Inflammation Research, University of Edinburgh, studies the cellular functions regulated by and of the Hippo Pathway and his teams research uses various interdisciplinary approaches aiming to solve still outstanding fundamental aspects of the Hippo pathway. As the chair of the webinar, Associate Prof. Dr. Carsten Hansen welcomed the audience to the subject, and he introduced the following expert researchers: Prof. Dr. Toshiro Moroishi, Assist. Prof. Dr. Gernot Walko, Assist. Prof. Dr. Hyun Woo Park, and Dr. Zach Brandt.
Prof. Dr. Toshiro Moroishi, Professor of the Faculty of Life Sciences at Kumamoto University, Japan, held the first presentation about "Hippo Pathway in Cancer and Immunity." The next presentation was held by Assist. Prof. Dr. Gernot Walko, who is Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator in the Department of Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Bath, UK. He talked about “YAP/WBP2/TEAD Interplay Controls Proliferation and Differentiation in Normal and Neoplastic Human Epidermis".
Assist. Prof. Dr. Hyun Woo Park, Assistant Professor at Yonsei University, Department of Biochemistry was the next speaker of the webinar. He held a presentation with the subject "Regulation of Hippo Pathway in Cancer Metabolism" and his presentation was followed by Dr. Zach Brandt. Dr. Zach Bradt, who is a recent graduate of Brian Link’s lab, located at the Medical College of Wisconsin, gave the last talk of the webinar about "Hippo-Yap Signaling in Hepatobiliary Development: Insights from Zebrafish."
Their presentations were followed by a discussion and Q&A session in the end of the webinar moderated by the chair, Associate Prof. Dr. Carsten Hansen.
The webinar was offered via Zoom and required registration to attend. The full recording can be found below.
