Abstract:

8 Apr 2019 - 10 Apr 2019

Cancer is a multi-hit process involving mutations in oncogenes and tumour suppressors. It is altered by its environment including interactions between the tumour cells and the surrounding normal tissue, immune response, and whole body metabolism. As such, cancer studies benefit from whole animal platforms. The fruit fly Drosophila is an excellent, genetically-tractable system for modelling the development of cancer due to the conservation of cell signalling, proliferation, and survival networks between fly and human.
