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.
