NUTRITION, METABOLISM, AND CANCER - Program Details

General Information Institution Taipei Medical University
Program C and Virtual Program Status Open
Program Information Program Name NUTRITION, METABOLISM, AND CANCER
Program Type Virtual Program
Program Description The crosstalk of epigenetic remodeling and metabolic rewiring is among the gastrointestinal cancer hallmarks. Epigenetic gene regulation is well known to facilitate metabolic reprogramming in cancer cells, meanwhile, specific metabolites have been identified as substrates or cofactors of chromatin-modifying enzymes or proteins for survival and homeostasis. Various metabolic alterations and epigenetic modifications also reportedly drive cancer initiation and immune escape in the tumor microenvironment. Studying these fields will be more significant to discover new therapeutic targets and translational applications in gastrointestinal cancers.
