                'Topical questions in Cell Death Signalling'


                                               Outline Programme

The theme of this session will be cell death signalling, stressing new pathways, including lipid mediators and
neuronal systems. Each lecture will raise relevant questions in this rapidly developing field. Topics will include:
Intracellular and transcellular pathophysiology of cell death mediators and signals, intrinsic mitochondrial
pathways, stress and reactive oxygen responses, calcium flux, in vascular endothelial, neuronal and
inflammatory systems, degenerative processes.
