Cell selection: A general mechanism during ageing, cancer and neurobiology

Scientific sessions, PRBB CRG Conferences

Eduardo Moreno

Institute of Cell Biology, Universität Bern. Bern, Switzerland

Eduardo Moreno, from the Institute of Cell Biology in Universität Bern, Switzerland, is interested in cancer, ageing, multicellularity and cell competition. Using stem cells in Drosophila and mice he studies the phenomenon of “cell competition”: how cells form stable societies and how they identify dangerous or suboptimal neighbors and eliminate them.

He has been invited by Bill Keyes (CRG).
