Dr Laurent Le Cam, Head of the Molecular Oncogenesis group, Montpellier Cancer Center, Inserm, France
Abstract: Dr Le Cam leads the Molecular Oncogenesis group at the Montpellier Cancer Centre and holds the director of research role at INSERM (France). He has held prestigious international fellowships including a Human Frontier Science Program Fellowship and an Inserm Prime d'Excellence award and his work is routinely published in high impact journals including Molecular Cell, PNAS, Cell Reports and the journal of experimental medicine. Dr Le Cam’s work focuses on molecular circuitries implicated in cellular senescence and stem cell function, and how deregulation of these processes can lead to pathologies. His presentation will focus on atypical functions of the p53 pathway in cell metabolism and the impact of the deregulation of these metabolic networks on stem cell maintenance, tissue homeostasis and tumorigenesis.
