Invited speaker at 8th Garvan Signalling Symposium 2016

Thomas R. Cox, Oct 2016

I’m delighted to have been invited to speak at the upcoming 8th Garvan Signalling Symposium being held at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney, Australia from 31st October – 1st November.

This is a short two day international symposium focusing on many different aspects of signalling across a wide range of tissues and organisms in both health and disease.


There’s a great lineup of international and national speakers on topics ranging from genomic, epigenomic, proteomic and phosphoproteomic modulation of cellular signalling as well as advances in cutting edge technologies for studying cellular signalling. The conference has attracted participants from all over the world, including Australia, New Zealand, UK, Canada, Germany and Sweden.

I’ll be giving a talk on the first day of the conference titled “ECM Remodelling in Tumour Progression and Metastasis” and will discuss our work on the importance of remodelling of the extracellular matrix in regulating intracellular signalling during breast and colorectal cancer progression and metastasis.
