EVENT DESCRIPTION  
 
Event Type:  Symposium (This is an NIH Science event)
 
Title:  NCI Frontiers in Targeting MYC
 
Description:  The MYC gene encodes for a transcription factor known as c-Myc (often known simply as Myc), a protooncogene and global transcriptional regulator. Since its discovery in the late 1970's, Myc has been recognized as pivotal in transcription, cellular transformation, and oncogenesis, as well as many other areas of cell biology. While under normal conditions Myc is tightly regulated, the deregulation of Myc is oncogenic. Aberrant Myc expression is found in some 70% of all cancers and is thought to cause roughly 100,000 deaths per year. Thus, the study of Myc is an integral area of cancer research.However, despite tremendous effort by academic and industrial groups over the last several decades, there remains no treatment for Myc-driven cancers. There is a need for the global community to come together to discuss modern approaches for studying and targeting MYC. Frontiers in Targeting MYC: Expression, Regulation, and Degradation is a two-day symposium that will enable the Myc community to come together and discuss problems, approaches and recent results in targeting Myc.
