Cell Death, Small Molecules, and Translational Medicine

The upcoming 26th ECDO conference From small molecules to translational medicine’, the 10-12th of October in Saint-Petersburg (locally organized by Professors Zhivotovsky, Barlev and Lavrik) will highlight the recent developments in the field of cell death with a focus on the small molecules discovery and development.

Pharmacological targeting via small molecule-based chemical probes has recently emerged as a valuable tool to delineate molecular mechanisms of various cell death pathways and pave the way towards novel therapeutic approaches in cancer, neurodegenerative and autoimmune diseases. We suggest the selection of articles from the CDD press that will lead through a breathtaking journey from the target –oriented drug development to translational applications.
