International conference this month, sponsored by ACCRF


There is an upcoming international conference to gather researchers studying the MYB protein, according to this news item from the University of New Mexico:

International Conference to Take a Fresh Look at a Cancer-causing Protein

From the announcement: We think that the MYB pro­tein is impor­tant in a vari­ety of human can­cers,” said Ness. “Ade­noid cys­tic car­ci­noma is a rel­a­tively rare tumor, but in that case we know that MYB is directly affected.” So the con­fer­ence will fos­ter new joint research efforts between peo­ple around the world who study this pro­tein by bring­ing them together to talk about their work. “We want to encour­age new kinds of col­lab­o­ra­tions and strate­gies for design­ing ways to tar­get MYB and to treat these kinds of tumors.”

Wonderful things come out of collaborations begun at just such a conference. This gathering may lead to additional breakthroughs in the years ahead.
