Invited by Prof. Hai-long Piao, Prof. Sheng-Cai Lin (Dean, School of Life Sciences) from the Xiamen University visited Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) on Mar. 18. In the conference hall of division of biotechnology, he gave an excellent lecture about sensing metabolic stresses and reprogramming of metabolic pathways. Scientists from biotechnology department and the relevant research groups attend the lecture.
Prof. Lin firstly summarized the key factors in the metabolic pathways. Based on his own study, he introduced the pathological roles of AXIN/AMPK/LAMTOR1 signal pathway in the metabolic processing. Prof. Lin gave high praise for translational research in view of metabolic disorder diseases and made some predictions about the potential aspects that translational research could get successful in near future.
