About this Event
The homeostatic role of autophagy in the liver presented by Xiao-Ming Yin, MD, Ph.D., Professor, and Chair of the Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at Tulane University School of Medicine. Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved mechanism that regulates nutrients metabolism, organelle turnover, and clearance of cellular "garbages". In the absence of autophagy function, the liver can undergo a variety of pathological changes including inflammation, injury, fibrosis, and tumorigenesis. The mechanisms of some of these changes will be discussed in this seminar.
