Cancer to cardioprotection – hearts and flowers, death and STATs
Chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and even ‘ inflammation’ are major causes of death worldwide and the significance of our lifestyle and diet in curbing these diseases is becoming clear. Moreover, we have learned incredible amounts of information from researching cancer and then applying it to fields that are not as well investigated, such as the underlying molecular biology of cardiac disease. This presentation will explain the role of genetically induced cell death and cell death caused by blunt trauma in a variety of biomedical contexts, with a focus on cancer and cardiovascular disease.
