IFR Seminar – Professor Trevor Dale

The Wnt pathway is frequently described as either ON or OFF in text books, but in reality is regulated across a range of different levels via tissue and context-specific mechanisms. In this talk, I will discuss how the control of the level of pathway activation is essential for normal breast development and for the efficient targeting of colorectal cancer with therapeutic agents.

Speaker Background:

Professor Dale did his undergraduate in Biochemistry at Imperial College and then completed a PhD on interferon signal transduction at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund in 1989 (now Cancer Research UK, London Research Centre). During this time, Trevor became interested in the role of signalling pathways in development. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Trevor established a research group at the Institute of Cancer Research in London in 1991.

His group moved to Cardiff in November 2003
